Traitement automatique et mesure d’intelligibilité de la parole pathologique

Speaker: Imed Laaridh Date: April 24, 2019 at 14:00 – C005 Abstract: L’intelligibilité de la parole est au cœur des interactions humaines. La problématique de son évaluation intéresse particulièrement la qualité de la transmission de la parole à travers différents milieux ou transducteurs, la compréhensibilité de la parole en cas de déficit de production ou de …

Hunting Echoes for Auditory Scene Analysis

Speaker: Diego DI CARLO Date: March 21, 2019 at 10:30 – C005 Abstract: Did you remember the Marvel’s movie about the superhero Daredevil? He is blind, but thanks to an enhanced hearing he become a radar-man: he can visualize the sound propagation and so retrieve an image of the surrounding space. This is done blindly, that …

Generative FLOW for expressive speech synthesis

Speaker: Ajinkya Kulkarni Date: February 14, 2019 at 10:30 – C005 Abstract: Recently, Generative FLOW based architecture have been proposed for generating high quality image generation. The major challenges in machine learning domain are ability to learn the representation from few data points and ability to generate new data from learned representation. In this talk, we …

SING: Symbol-to-Instrument Neural Generator

Speaker: Alexandre Défossez Date: January 10, 2019 at 13:00 – B011 Abstract: Recent progress in deep learning for audio synthesis opens the way to models that directly produce the waveform, shifting away from the traditional paradigm of relying on vocoders or MIDI synthesizers for speech or music generation. Despite their successes, current state-of-the-art neural audio synthesizers …

Deep learning-based speaker localization and speech separation from Ambisonics recordings

Speaker: Laureline Pérotin Date: November 22, 2018 at 10:30 – C005 Abstract: Personal assistants are flourishing, but it is still hard to achieve voice control in adverse conditions, whenever noise, other speakers, reverberation or furniture reflections are present. Preprocessings such as speaker localization and speech enhancement have shown to help automatic speech recognition. I will present …

Analysis and development of speech enhancement features in cochlear implants

Speaker: Nicolas Furnon Date: October 18, 2018 at 10:30 – C005 Abstract: Language identification systems are very common in speech processing and are used to classify the spoken language given a recorded audio sample. They are often used as a front-end for subsequent processing tasks such as automatic speech recognition or speaker identification. Standard methodologies such …

Alpha-stable process for signal processing

Speaker: Mathieu Fontaine Date: September 27, 2018 at 10:30 – C005 Abstract: The scientific topic of sound source separation (SSS) aims at decomposing audio signals into their constitutive components, e.g. separate the main signer voice from the background music or from the background noise. In the case of very old and degraded historical recordings, SSS strongly …

Adversarial Neural Networks for Language Identification

Speaker: Raphaël Duroselle Date: July 12, 2018 at 10:30 – C103 Abstract: Language identification systems are very common in speech processing and are used to classify the spoken language given a recorded audio sample. They are often used as a front-end for subsequent processing tasks such as automatic speech recognition or speaker identification. Standard methodologies such …
