Data augmentation and enhancement for multimodal speech emotion recognition

Jonathan Christian Setyono, Amalia Zahra


Humans’ fundamental need is interaction with each other such as using conversation or speech. Therefore, it is crucial to analyze speech using computer technology to determine emotions. The speech emotion recognition (SER) method detects emotions in speech by examining various aspects. SER is a supervised method to decide the emotion class in speech. This research proposed a multimodal SER model using one of the deep learning based enhancement techniques, which is the attention mechanism. Additionally, this research addresses the imbalanced dataset problem in the SER field using generative adversarial networks (GAN) as a data augmentation technique. The proposed model achieved an excellent evaluation performance of 0.96 or 96% for the proposed GAN configuration. This work showed that the GAN method in the multimodal SER model could enhance performance and create a balanced dataset.
