A major goal in blind source separation to identify and separate sources is to model their inherent characteristics. While most state-of- the-art approaches are supervised methods trained on large datasets, interest in non-data-driven approaches such as Kernel Additive Modelling (KAM) remains high due to their interpretability and adaptability. KAM performs the separation of a given source applying robust statistics on the time-frequency bins selected by a source-specific kernel function, commonly the K-NN function.

Utterance level permutation invariant training (uPIT) tech- nique is a state-of-the-art deep learning architecture for speaker independent multi-talker separation. uPIT solves the label ambiguity problem by minimizing the mean square error (MSE) over all permutations between outputs and tar- gets. However, uPIT may be sub-optimal at segmental level because the optimization is not calculated over the individual frames. In this paper, we propose a constrained uPIT (cu- PIT) to solve this problem by computing a weighted MSE loss using dynamic information (i.e., delta and acceleration).

Speech enhancement deep learning systems usually require large amounts of training data to operate in broad conditions or real applications. This makes the adaptability of those systems into new, low resource environments an important topic. In this work, we present the results of adapting a speech enhancement generative adversarial network by fine-tuning the generator with small amounts of data. We investigate the minimum requirements to obtain a stable behavior in terms of several objective metrics in two very different languages: Catalan and Korean.

We propose an end-to-end model based on convolutional and recurrent neural networks for speech enhancement. Our model is purely data-driven and does not make any assumptions about the type or the stationarity of the noise. In contrast to existing methods that use multilayer perceptrons (MLPs), we employ both convolutional and recurrent neural network architectures. Thus, our approach allows us to exploit local structures in both the frequency and temporal domains.

We propose a novel latent variable model for learning latent bases for time-varying non-negative data. Our model uses a mixture multinomial as the likelihood function and proposes a Dirichlet distribution with dynamic parameters as a prior, which we call the dynamic Dirichlet prior. An expectation maximization (EM) algorithm is developed for estimating the parameters of the proposed model.

Robust speech processing in multi-talker environments requires effective speech separation. Recent deep learning systems have made significant progress toward solving this problem, yet it remains challenging particularly in real-time, short latency applications. Most methods attempt to construct a mask for each source in time-frequency representation of the mixture signal which is not necessarily an optimal representation for speech separation.
