Phone Recognition and Language Modeling for Variety Identification
This talk will introduce the phonotactic approach “Phone Recognition and Language Modeling” (PRLM) for language/variety identification. After a detailed view on this token based method, I will present the use of a specialized Phone Recognizer to differentiate African Portuguese from European Portuguese in a highly accurate way. In contrast to other PRLM based methods, the tokenizer combines distinctive knowledge about the differences between the target varieties. This knowledge is introduced into a MLP phone recognizer by training two varieties’ mono-phonemes as contrasting phoneme-like classes within a single tokenizer. Significant improvements in terms of identification rate and computational cost were achieved compared to conventional single tokenizer PRLM based systems and to the combination of up to five parallel PRLM identifiers.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
