In this talk I will present the activity at the Computer Vision Laboratory that can be of interest to the speech community. I will start by briefly introducing myself and my previous work at the Speech, Music and Hearing department, KTH, Stockholm. Then I will touch on a number of topics that are addressed mainly within the CONTACT European project. These include: sound localization, modelling speech development, imitation and word grounding. I will also describe a database that was recorded in cooperation with the CONTACT consortium, containing ultrasound and 3d articulograph measurements of the tongue in isolated words.
