Overall Objectives

The goal of the project is the modeling of speech for facilitating oral-based communication. The name MULTISPEECH comes from the following aspects that are particularly considered.

Our objectives are structured in three research axes, which have evolved compared to the project proposal finalized in 2014. Indeed, due to the ubiquitous use of deep learning, the distinction between `explicit modeling' and `statistical modeling' is not relevant anymore and the fundamental issues raised by deep learning have grown into a new research axis `beyond black-box supervised learning'. The three research axes are now the following.

A large part of the research is conducted on French and English speech data; German and Arabic languages are also considered either in speech recognition experiments or in language learning. Adaptation to other languages of the machine learning based approaches is possible, depending on the availability of speech corpora.
