In recent years, prototypical networks have been widely used
in many few-shot learning scenarios. However, as a metric-
based learning method, their performance often degrades in
the presence of bad or noisy embedded features, and outliers
in support instances. In this paper, we introduce a hybrid at-
tention module and combine it with prototypical networks for
few-shot sound classification. This hybrid attention module
consists of two blocks: a feature-level attention block, and
This paper describes our submission to the L3DAS22 Challenge Task 1, which consists of speech enhancement with 3D Ambisonic microphones. The core of our approach combines Deep Neural Network (DNN) driven complex spectral mapping with linear beamformers such as the multi-frame multi-channel Wiener filter. Our proposed system has two DNNs and a linear beamformer in between. Both DNNs are trained to perform complex spectral mapping, using a combination of waveform and magnitude spectrum losses.
Speech enhancement is a critical component of many user-oriented audio applications, yet current systems still suffer from distorted and unnatural outputs. While generative models have shown strong potential in speech synthesis, they are still lagging behind in speech enhancement. This work leverages recent advances in diffusion probabilistic models, and proposes a novel speech enhancement algorithm that incorporates characteristics of the observed noisy speech signal into the diffusion and reverse processes.
