Largest Icelandic LVL Group at Interspeech in 2017

This August, our LVL group members will be attending Interspeech 2017 to present their three papers, meet other folks in the speech recognition field, and have lots of fun. Two posters,“Building an ASR corpus using Althingi’s Parliamentary Speeches” and “Building ASR corpora using Eyra,” will be presented during the Wednesday Special Session: Digital Revolution for Under-resourced Languages 2 poster session at 13:30-15:30 so go say, “Hi!” to our members if you can. The third paper, “Objective Severity Assessment From Disordered Voice Using Estimated Glottal Airflow,” will be presented as a talk by Yu-Ren on Monday afternoon.

For the Alþingi Speech paper by Inga Rún, the language corpus can be found at Malfong.is and the Kaldi recipe can be found on Github.com but the best resource will be Inga Rún herself so grab a drink and find her at the Welcome Reception or the Standing Banquet.

We hope to meet you all there!
