A Hybrid Approach for Speech Enhancement Using GMM and Deep Neural Network Phoneme Classifier

Tuesday, October 18, 2016, 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm, room F108, INRIA Montbonnot Seminar by Sharon Gannot, Bar Ilan University Abstract: In this work, we propose a hybrid approach for single microphone speech enhancement, merging the generative Mixture of Gaussians (MoG) model and the discriminative deep neural network (DNN). The proposed algorithm is executed in …

Binaural sound reproduction for the hearing impaired

Thursday, October 6, 2016, 10:00 am to 11:00 am, room F107, INRIA Montbonnot Seminar by Noam Shabtai, Ben Gourion University Abstract: In most hearing aids systems, microphone array signal processing algorithms may be employed in order to reduce the noise and enhance the signals that are arriving from specific directions. However, most noise reduction algorithms …

Modelling face-to-face conversational interaction with robots

Thursday, October 6, 2016, 11:00 am to 12:00 am, room F107, INRIA Montbonnot Seminar by Gabriel Skantze, KTH, Stockholm, Sweden Abstract: When humans interact and collaborate with each other, they coordinate their turn-taking behaviours using verbal and non-verbal signals, expressed in the face and voice. If robots of the future are supposed to engage in social interaction with humans, it …

Matrix Completion: A Vision-oriented Perspective

Friday, June 3, 2016, 10:00 am to 11:00 am, room F107, INRIA Montbonnot Seminar by Xavier Alameda-Pineda, University of Trento, Italy Abstract: Matrix completion is a generic framework aiming to recover a matrix from a limited number of (possibly noisy) entries. In this context, low-rank regularizers are often imposed so as to find matrix estimators that are …

Guiding Robot Audition with Motor Data: A Hybrid Classifier-Dictionary Approach

Monday, March 7, 2016, 11:00 to 12:00, room F107, INRIA Montbonnot Seminar by Antoine Deleforge, PANAMA team, INRIA Rennes-Atlantique A specificity of human-robot interaction (HRI), as opposed to human-computer interaction (HCI), is the ability of a robot to perform movements. On the one hand, this ability may constitute an advantage, enabling active perception. On the …
