While we have seen significant advances in automatic summarization for text, research on speech summarization is still limited. In this work, we address the challenge of automatically generating teasers for TED talks. In the first step, we create a corpus for automatic summarization of TED and TEDx talks consisting of the talks' recording, their transcripts and their descriptions. The corpus is used to build a speech summarization system for the task. We adapt and combine pre-trained models for automatic speech recognition (ASR) and text summarization using the collected data.


Multi-temporal remotely sensed observations acquired by multi-spectral sensors contain a wealth of information related to the Earth’s state. Deep learning methods have demonstrated a great potential in analyzing such observations. Traditional 2D and 3D approaches are unable to effectively extract valuable information encoded across all available dimensions.


The recently proposed conformer architecture has been successfully used for end-to-end automatic speech recognition (ASR) architectures achieving state-of-the-art performance on different datasets. To our best knowledge, the impact of using conformer acoustic model for hybrid ASR is not investigated. In this paper, we present and evaluate a competitive conformer-based hybrid model training recipe. We study different training aspects and methods to improve worderror-rate as well as to increase training speed.


In recent years, speech emotion recognition (SER) has been used in wide ranging applications, from healthcare to the commercial sector. In addition to signal processing approaches, methods for SER now also use deep learning techniques which provide transfer learning possibilities. However, generalizing over languages, corpora and recording conditions is still an open challenge. In this work we address this gap by exploring loss functions that aid in transferability, specifically to non-tonal languages.


The best performance in Air-tissue boundary (ATB) segmentation of real-time Magnetic Resonance Imaging (rtMRI) videos in speech production is known to be achieved by a 3-dimensional convolutional neural network (3D-CNN) model. However, the evaluation of this model, as well as other ATB segmentation techniques reported in the literature, is done using Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) distance between the entire original and predicted contours. Such an evaluation measure may not capture local errors in the predicted contour.
