MLSP2016 paper: Speaker Tracking for Hearing Aids

MLSP 2016 poster, the print version
can be found here.
Yesterday, I presented my poster at the 2016 IEEE International Workshop on Machine Learning for Signal processing. I think it was received pretty well, there were several people that talked to me, and we had very good discussions. The biggest problem (and typical for all poster sessions) was that there were other good posters being presented, and I couldn't really spend time talking to the other authors at that session. However, over the next few days I'll have a chance to chat with them, so it's all good.

My own paper I'm presenting is entitled "Speaker Tracking for Hearing Aids", and it basically a method to link speech utterances spoken at different times by the same speaker, a classic problem also found in speaker diarization (but I don't need to do segmentation).  My method however is optimized for low computational complexity (for hearing aids), yet reaches comparable performance to typical far more complex methods.  You can find the abstract, paper, and poster (seen in the pic) on my homepage.
Overall, I like these small, highly focused conferences - and being in a nice sunny environment is not to be sneezed at either.
