Speech Representation, Perception and Recognition
Bob McMurray, U. Iowa Abstract: One of the most challenging aspects of speech perception is the rampant variability in the signal. One consequence of this variability is that purely bottom up approaches to categorizing phonemes have not consistently been successful. Top down accounts--analogous to...

Karen Livescu, TTI Abstract: For a number of speech tasks, it can be useful to represent speech segments of arbitrary length by fixed-dimensional vectors, or embeddings.  In particular, vectors representing word segments -- acoustic word embeddings -- can be used in query-by-example tasks, example-...

David Poeppel, Max-Planck-Institute and NYU Abstract: Neurophysiological experiments demonstrate that auditory cortical activity entrains to continuous speech. This entrainment, building on neural oscillations, underlies segmentation, and the segmented chunks in turn form the basis for decoding. To...

Keith Johnson, UC Berkeley Abstract: At one point in my research career I was interested in finding “the” representation of speech. But clearly, there is no one level of speech representation. Researchers find it useful to represent speech in a variety of ways.  Linguists and phoneticians use...
