Title Speech Data Corpus for Verbal Intelligence Estimation
Authors Kseniya Zablotskaya, Steffen Walter and Wolfgang Minker
Abstract The goal of our research is the development of algorithms for automatic estimation of a person's verbal intelligence based on the analysis of transcribed spoken utterances. In this paper we present the corpus of German native speakers' monologues and dialogues about the same topics collected at the University of Ulm, Germany. The monologues were descriptions of two short films; the dialogues were discussions about problems of German education. The data corpus contains the verbal intelligence quotients of each speaker, which were measured with the Hamburg Wechsler Intelligence Test for Adults. In this paper we describe our corpus, why we decided to create it, and how it was collected. We also describe some approaches which can be applied to the transcribed spoken utterances for extraction of different features which could have a correlation with a person's verbal intelligence. The data corpus consists of 71 monologues and 30 dialogues (about 10 hours of audio data).
