Master's Thesis: "Deep Learning Applied to Speech and Audio Signal Processing under Adverse Environments", National Tsing Hua University, AUG. 01, 2019 in Taiwan.

The thesis discuss the real-life tasks such as dereverberation, sound event detection, and source separation under adverse environments, especially highly reverberant. Traditional Algorithms are compared with proposed deep neural network based methods. The results show that proposed methods outperform others.

Journal Paper: "Multichannel Sound Event Separation and Detection in Adverse Environments Using Convolutional Recurrent Neural Network with Complex Masking," IEEE/ACM Transactions on Audio, Speech and Language Processing (Under Review).

Propose an end-to-end polyphonic sound event separation and detection system aimed at separating and detecting multiple sound events. The system consists of a convolutional recurrent neural network in conjunction with an ideal complex mask. In addition, a discriminative training network is employed to increase the robustness.

Conference Paper: "Deep Learning Applied to Dereverberation and Sound Event Classification," International Congress on Acoustics, SEPT. 09-13, 2019 in Germany.

Investigates dereverberation and sound event detection techniques, with the aid of deep learning. The proposed system consists of two units: a multichannel deep neural front-end and a VGG-like classifier back-end trained with generic data augmented by various room impulse responses.

Conference Paper: "Robotic Voice Assistant Equipped with Binaural Audio," INTERNOISE, JUNE. 16-19, 2019 in Madrid.

The robot is comprised primarily of three functional units: (1) a microphone array used to locate the user position (2) a cloud-based DNN-based classifier for command words recognition (3) loudspeaker array for binaural audio sound effect.

Source Separation

Source separation, blind signal separation (BSS) or blind source separation, is the separation of a set of source signals from a set of mixed signals, without the aid of information (or with very little information) about the source signals or the mixing process.
