Premio Antoni Caparrós
December 11, 2018
"The Antoni Caparrós Award for the best knowledge transfer project was for Chiara, an application developed by the UB Phonetics Laboratory, directed by Ana M.ª Fernández Planas, in collaboration with the Madrid company Team Training Consulting, under the impulse of Soraya del Portillo. The application allows users to follow a practical course on oral expression techniques in a completely autonomous way and without the intervention of any teacher, so anyone with a smartphone and virtual reality glasses can improve their abilities to speak in public . Chiara analyzes the presentations made by the user during the course and automatically assesses whether the person is a good speaker or not. In addition, it gives him the necessary information to improve his expression in public, "said the university's web portal.
