Interspeech 2015: Speech beyond Speech
The Interspeech’s 2015 conference proved a week full of very interesting keynotes, good meetings and a lot of feedback from both academic and industrial visitors. The future of speech in our connected world is bright.
The event is sponsored by major companies like Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Amazon, which showcased their smart Echo speaker. Their presence is a strong signal that major companies spearhead future innovations on speech interaction with devices, cars, washing machines or any other IOT device or application.
The adaption of speech interaction is growing rapidly and the latest academic research and technologies presented at Interspeech will support this process. Some interesting topics were:
- Speech Perception, Production, and Acquisition
- Phonetics, Phonology, and Prosody
- Speaker and Language Identification
- Analysis of Speech and Audio Signals
- Speech Coding and Enhancement
- Speech Recognition
- Signal Processing, Acoustic Modeling, Robustness, and Adaptation
Our mission to develop natural acoustics speech and sensing solutions fully corresponds with Interspeech goals and that is why NXP Software sponsored and showcased our software solutions at this year’s event.
