Sound is not speech

Each year, researchers, pioneers and students working in the fields of speech and audio gather together at the SANE Workshop. This year’s event took place in New York at Google’s office and I was invited to speak at the event, which was a massive honour.

The focus of my presentation was on the differences between speech recognition, which is a well-understood field of research, and the new discipline of sound recognition which introduces a range of other challenges on technology developers and academics.

Along with my colleague Giacomo Ferroni, I learnt a lot from the event and a blog post detailing our highlights will follow in due course.

In the meantime, please feel free to watch my presentation and you can view the slides via SlideShare below.
