Speech Title: Machine Listening and its Applications
Abstract: Research on machine listening is on the rise with the advancements of artificial intelligence and sound processing technologies, alongside the increasing collections of digital sound recordings and sound sensor data. Machine listening is a field encompassing research on a wide range of tasks and methods such as speech recognition, audio content recognition, audio-based search, content-based music analysis, signal processing and auditory modelling. This talk will present an overview of machine listening followed by discussions of several past projects on music and health informatics. An ongoing machine listening project on tyre-road sound interactions towards improving vehicle safety systems will also be discussed.
