Augmented Human Communication Laboratory
Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST)

Augmented Human Communication (AHC) Laboratory is a new lab, established as Super Research Group (SRG) in April 2011!
NEWS!Prof. Satoshi Nakamura has been named IEEE Fellow!

Toward enhancement of human communication abilities, the AHC Laboratory is promoting the research and education on a wide variety of technologies that support communications between human-to-human and human-to-computer, including multilingual speech translation, dialog system, communication quality of life (QoL), voice conversion, silent speech interface, user-adaptive speech recognition/synthesis, and brain analysis related human communication. High priority is placed not only to the theoretical aspect but also the technical applicability, including the practical application of a prototype system and network service system as well as its evaluation.
From 2014, we started NAIST BIG DATA PROJECT aimed at large-scale data processing.
