Highlights of the Year

We developed the first deep learning-based multichannel speech enhancement algorithm that jointly reduces acoustic echo, reverberation, and background noise [57].

E. Vincent gave a keynote at the Voice Tech Paris 2019 trade fair [18].

A. Deleforge organized the IEEE Signal Processing Cup 2019 on "Search & Rescue with Drone-Embedded Sound Source Localization", to which 20 teams of undergraduate students from 18 universities in 11 countries participated, for a total of 132 participants [5]. The final took place on May the 13th at the international conference ICASSP in Brighton. The associated DREGON dataset, which was made publicly available afterwards, has received over 1,000 file downloads as of December 2019.


L. Perotin obtained the Best Poster Award of the 2019 IEEE Workshop on Applications of Signal Processing to Audio and Acoustics (WASPAA) .
