Acoustic Environment Recognition
In this project the students gained experience in the basics of speech, audio or environment recognition. Speech recognition is the technology that recognizes speech and serves as an interface between a human and a computer. This field has attracted much interest in recent years after launching the SIRI in mobile phones. In particular, students worked on a system able to recognize different types of environments. After recording the sound of a few different environments, students helped design the recognition system based on that data, and tested it to characterize its performance.
