End-to-end (E2E) automatic speech recognition (ASR) systems directly map acoustics to words using a unified model. Previous works mostly focus on E2E training a single model which integrates acoustic and language model into a whole. Although E2E training benefits from sequence modeling and simplified decoding pipelines, large amount of transcribed acoustic data is usually required, and traditional acoustic and language ...

Direct acoustics-to-word (A2W) models in the end-to-end paradigm have received increasing attention compared to conventional subword based automatic speech recognition models using phones, characters, or context-dependent hidden Markov model states. This is because A2W models recognize words from speech without any decoder, pronunciation lexicon, or externally-trained language model, making training and decoding with such models simple. Prior work has shown ...

Multiple-speaker tracking is a crucial task for many applications. In real- world scenarios, exploiting the complementarity between auditory and visual data enables to track people outside the visual field of view. However, practical methods must be robust to changes in acoustic conditions, e.g. reverberation. We investigate how to combine state-of-the-art audio-source localization techniques with Bayesian multi-person tracking. Our experiments demonstrate ...

The performance of automatic speech recognition systems degrades with increasing mismatch between the training and testing scenarios. Differences in speaker accents are a significant source of such mismatch. The traditional approach to deal with multiple accents involves pooling data from several accents during training and building a single model in multi-task fashion, where tasks correspond to individual accents. In this ...

  • Acoustics

    **Helps readers develop an intuitive understanding of audio signal processing** Acclaimed for its breadth of coverage as well as its clear, accessible presentation, _Speech and Audio Signal Processing_ examines how machines and humans process audio signals, with an emphasis on speech and music. It begins with basic principles and then explains how these principles set the foundation for a wide range of applications. Moreover, the book is organized into a series of short chapters, offering readers a succinct overview of the range of topics that together represent the current state of knowledge in the field. This _Second Edition_ brings the book fully up to date with the explosive growth in audio processing technology, including the latest advances in digital music processing and distribution. New topics include: * Psychoacoustic audio coding, examining MP3 and related audio coding schemes that are based on the psychoacoustic masking of quantization noise * Music transcription, explaining how notes, beats, and chords can be automatically derived from music signals * Music information retrieval, exploring audio-based genre classification, artist and style identification, and similarity estimation * Audio source separation, describing multi-microphone beamforming, blind source separation, and perception-inspired techniques Throughout the book, the authors present both human and machine strategies for accomplishing audio processing tasks. Readers will discover that, in many cases, human strategies can provide the inspiration for the development of machine strategies. _Speech and Audio Signal Processing_ is recommended for anyone who needs to understand the technologies underlying some of today's most cutting-edge applications, including speech recognition, audio compression, music synthesis, and diarization.

  • Acoustics Goes Back to War: Mass Mobilization and Remilitarization of Acoustics Research

    On 30 January 1933, Adolf Hitler was sworn in as chancellor of Germany by President Paul von Hindenburg. This date marks the National Socialist Machtergreifung (seizure of power) and the end of the politically and economically unstable Weimar Republic. In this chapter, I explore the connections between acoustics, the attempt of the NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers Party) to control various soundscapes, and its ideology and practices.

  • Between Science and Engineering, Academia and Industry: Acoustics in the Weimar Republic

    World War I had reconfigured acoustics as a scientific field. Wartime activities and practices were continued into peacetime institutions and projects. To find out what acoustics looked like in Germany during the interwar period, we take a look at two extensive handbooks of the time. Ferdinand Trendelenburg, physicist at Siemens Research Laboratories in Berlin, edited Akustik, which appeared as volume 8 of the Handbuch der Physik in 1927.

  • Conclusion: The New Acoustics

    What does the history of acoustics tell us about the discipline of physics and its transformations in the interwar period? What does it tell about its objects, its objectives, its practices, and its material and immaterial tools? As I argue in the introduction, the field of acoustics does not feature in our common understanding of "modern physics."

  • Introduction: A History and Geography of Acoustics

    When I began my research on Johan Holtsmark's acoustics laboratory at the Norwegian Institute of Technology more than fifteen years ago, I did not know what I would get myself into. I wondered, why would an accomplished physicist like Holtsmark engage in the research field of acoustics--apparently outdated by 1930--while building Scandinavia's first particle accelerator? What unfolded was a fascinating story that has occupied me ever since.

  • Science Goes to War: Warfare and the Industrialization of Acoustics

    World War I broke out on 28 July 1914 and lasted until 11 November 1918. It brought an end to the bourgeois and aristocratic world order of the Wilhelmine and Edwardian era. Though its main battles were carried out in Europe, World War I was a global war to the extent that it affected most of the world's population, including many people in the colonies of the European imperial powers.
