Automatic Speech Processing


Overview

Artificial reverberation has been added to anechoic speech data to train more robust machine learning models for automatic speech processing. We are developing methods for automatic speech recognition, source separation and localization, binaural audio generation, and speech emotion recognition.


Software

  • pygsound: pygsound is a python package for impulse response generation based on state-of-the-art geometric sound propagation engine. The simulation is implemented with C++ and uses pybind11 for python APIs.
