Speaker and Content Identification
Telefonica Research –
In this talk I will cover two of the topics I have been recently working on. On the one hand, with regard to speaker identification, I will introduce the use of binary fingerprints to model the voice of a speaker. Based on the projection of standard acoustic vectors into a special GMM model (representing the speaker acoustic space), high-dimensional binary vectors, which have been proven successful in identifying speakers for speaker verification and diarization tasks, are obtained. On the other hand, I will talk about current developments in pattern matching approaches that allow for the development of content-centric applications when little or no training data is available for a particular language. In particular, I will describe a query-by-example system I presented to Mediaeval 2011 evaluation, which uses a novel feature extraction front-end I further described in a paper at ICASSP 2012.

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.
The program and more details are available here.
