A new Hasler project called "SESAME" accepted

SEarching Swiss Audio MEmories

The project SESAME will start on January  first  2011 and will be managed by Dr Fabio Valente.

The proposed project (SESAME) aims at advancing the state-of-the-art in speech processing for automatically detecting and classifying folkloric literary productions uttered by actors in spoken archives of the cultural heritage. SESAME is organized in two research tracks:

  • The automatic identi cation of actors in a given recording. This involves two sub-tasks: the detection of speaker time boundaries and the classi cation of each speaker into a category (or role), i.e., actor, journalist or guest.
  • The automatic identi cation of literary productions in a given recording. This involves two subtasks: the detection of the story boundaries (i.e., semantically uniform segments) and the classication of each story into a category, i.e., presentation, interview, debate, story-telling, recital, poetry or theatrical representation.
