Abstract: Most everyone in our society has an ever-increasing amount of digitally encoded documents and data, be they a private person or an institution.
Prof. Kawahara has spent many years building STRAIGHT, an ultra-high resolution approach to analyzing and modifying speech signals, that is the basis of many speech manipulation experiments and products. He will be at CCRMA to discuss STRAIGHT, its history, its approach, and current status.
