Multichannel Speech Enhancement: From Wiener Filtering to Neural Networks By Dr. Ivan Tashev


Abstract: In this talk we will discuss the history and the modern state of sound capturing and speech enhancement. We will start with the general architecture of speech enhancement pipelines for the needs of hands-free telecommunication and distant speech recognition. The talk will discuss both classical approaches using statistical signal processing and deep learning using neural networks. It will be illustrated with real-life examples from the speech enhancement audio pipelines in Kinect, HoloLens, and Teams. Speaker(s): Dr. Ivan Tashev, Virtual:
