Material Category
My thesis, Big Talk, concentrates on building a digital platform to tackle the key phases of public speaking, from the preparation stage to the final performance, in a form which is universally accessible through the web. By fusing speech recognition technology and spaced repetition techniques, the tool is versatile enough to be used to practice for any high-pressure public speaking situation, whether it be a job interview, an audition, a presentation, or even a wedding speech.
