In partnership with IDS Teams, Hi! PARIS is pleased to propose an exceptional seminar of Jonathan Leroux, Speech and Audio Senior Team Leader at Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL) in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
We are delighted to welcome Jonathan Le Roux for an exceptional seminar, entitled “Towards general and flexible audio source separation and transcription”. Jonathan was invited researcher of Hi! PARIS for 3 months and hosted at IDS research Team. Thanks to Gaël Richard, Stéphan Clémençon and IDS Team for this opportunity.

Towards general and flexible audio source separation and transcription
With the advent of deep-learning-based methods, audio source separation has seen a resurgence of interest and success. I will give an overview of techniques developed at MERL towards the goal of robustly and flexibly decomposing, analyzing, and transcribing an acoustic scene. In particular, I will describe our efforts to extend our early speech separation and enhancement methods to more challenging environments, and to more general and less supervised scenarios.
Keywords: audio source separation, deep learning, speech enhancement, total transcription, end-to-end automatic speech recognition
