I know this is kind of late, but I was wondering if there would be any interest in a conference call application for community core audio.
I was thinking it would take advantage of other oss like mumble, which is a client/server voip app, and CLAM for audio manipulation and analysis. So one app that could be extended a number of ways:
- Be able to have NLP, sentiment analysis of all participants
- Autonomous or semi-autonomous mediation
- Dominance detection
- Topic modeling
- Work with ccv to capture non-verbal behaviors
- easy setup to collect data for social scientists
- should work with web, smartphones. just need to login to a server
- because its networked, explore communication with other networked devices? If all the devices in the home are on the network, then one could communicate to the TV or lighting systems
- virtual agents like Siri

There are lots of interesting ways this could be extended. A lot of this work is related to my research (I am a 2nd year PhD student at CMU). If I could get some feedback on what would make this appropriate for a NUI GSoC proposal, I can quickly write one up.
