Big Data in Speech Computation 2018 : Special Session Big Data in Speech Computation
Call For Papers
"Big Data in Speech Computation"
Big Data is an emerging topic in a broad variety of research areas.
Especially deep learning methods gained huge successes in a broad area of
applications such as speech recognition, social signal analyses and natural
language processing. Big data furthermore allows to conduct predictive
analytics, user behaviour analytics to enhance the system knowledge on user
Along with the growing data and new methods also the problem of data
capturing, data storage and data analysis. Many of these issues demands a
manual annotation, which is not feasible in the case of big data. Thus,
methods to allow a proper (semi-)automatic annotation of big data are
On the other hand for emotional analyses and interaction analyses of speech
data the capturing of big data itself is challenging. Methods to generate
speech data from learned representations may help in this context.
In this special session we call for for research papers dealing and
discussing the above mentioned issues. The topics include (but are not limited
(semi-)automatic speech data analyses (for big data),
language modelling and big data
generative adversarial networks
Authors are asked to submit their papers using EasyChair submission system
