Bowon Lee on Sound Source Localization by Machines

Date: 
Fri, 05/23/2014 - 11:00am - 12:30pm
Location: 
CCRMA Seminar Room
Event Type: 
Hearing Seminar
The use of voice commands for human-computer interaction is becoming more prevalent thanks to the recent advancements of automatic speech recognition (ASR) technologies. In typical acoustic environments, audio captured by a microphone contains background noise, reverberation, and signals from interfering sources, making reliable speech capture a challenging problem. Some applications even require more than one user to interact with the system, e.g., gaming, which makes simultaneous speaker detection and localization crucial for enabling natural interactions. Distant multi-speaker speech capture often benefits from the use of microphone arrays that can provide enhanced speech signals using spatial filtering, or beamforming.

New York Times article: Jonathan Berger's "Visitations" Premiére at Stanford.
PALO ALTO, Calif. — I attended two performances of Jonathan Berger’s “Visitations” at the Bing Concert Hall at Stanford last week here. On Friday evening I sat in the primary motor cortex. The following night, my seat was located off to the side, in Broca’s area.
“Visitations,” a double bill of one-act operas about auditory hallucinations, mixes digital sounds with live voices and a chamber ensemble.
