Computational modeling of early language acquisition – Bridging the gap between acoustic input and high-level linguistic representations

Date: 
Fri, 06/19/2015 - 11:00am - 12:30pm
Location: 
CCRMA Seminar Room
Event Type: 
Hearing Seminar
It is amazing that all of us as infants learn how to parse the auditory environment around us. Okko Räsänen is here at Stanford as a PostDoc, and coming to CCRMA to talk about his work on understanding how infants learn to segment words out of the acoustic stream. This is a special post-quarter seminar, and I think the topic is important to anybody that thinks about high-level understanding of sound.

Who: Okko Räsänen (Stanford and Aalto University)
What: Computational modeling of early language acquisition
          Bridging the gap between acoustic input and high-level linguistic representations
When: 11AM on Friday June 19, 2015
Where: CCRMA Seminar Room

Alex Brandmeyer on High-frequency Neural oscillations for Auditory Perception

Date: 
Fri, 05/22/2015 - 11:30am - 1:00pm
Location: 
CCRMA Seminar Room (Top Floor of the Knoll)
Event Type: 
Hearing Seminar
Our transparent everyday experience of sound belies the complex perceptual processes which transform acoustic energy in the environment into rich representations of sound-emitting objects. Since the publication of Bregman’s seminal work on ‘Auditory Scene Analysis’, much progress has been made in understanding the neural mechanisms that support the formation of auditory streams and object representations. This talk will focus on the functional role of neural oscillations in audition, and the interplay between top-down (i.e. attentional and executive processes) and bottom-up (sensory) processes during the formation of perceptual representations.

Pat Scandalis - Physically Modeled Musical Instruments on Mobile Devices

Date: 
Thu, 05/21/2015 - 5:15pm - 6:30pm
Location: 
Classroom
Event Type: 
Guest Colloquium
Handheld mobile computing devices are now ubiquitous. These devices are powerful, connected and equipped with a variety of sensors. Their pervasiveness has created an opportunity to realize parametrically controlled, physically modeled, virtual musical instruments. moForte inc was founded to develop a line of sonic and musical applications for handheld devices. We developed the "moForte Guitar Stack" which models the guitar family of instruments. This stack has been used to used to develop applications for mobile devices.

We give an overview of the history of physical modeling with many sound examples, and then brief overview of the current state of modeling on mobile devices using a few apps based on the moForte Guitar Stack.
