Speech Representation, Perception and Recognition
Brian Kingsbury, IBM Abstract: A key to achieving good automatic speech recognition performance has been the availability of vast amounts of labeled and unlabeled speech and text data that can be used to train speech models; however, there are...

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...

Speech Representation, Perception and Recognition
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...

Speech Representation, Perception and Recognition
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...
