INTERSPEECH is an annual conference that includes papers on all the scientific and technological aspects of Speech. More than 1,700 participants from all over the world attend the conference annually to present their work in oral and poster sessions. Additionally, Interspeech is one of the biggest speech-related conferences worldwide with an acceptance rate below 50%. Due to covid-related issues, the conference will be held both, online and on-site.

ATCO2 project will be presented on the satellite workshop at Interspeech 2021: The purpose of this satellite workshop is to bring together Speech Recognition and Air Traffic Management (ATM), i.e. all the experts available at the Interspeech and the ATM World. Different presentations are especially addressing the topic of speech recognition in ATM, asking questions and putting challenges for both sides on the table. Date/Time: 30th of August @ 14:00 CEST Costs: Free of charge

ATCO2 project (in association with other related HAAWAII project supported by EC) has succeeded with its proposition to organise a special session at Interspeech 2021 conference (30.8 - 3.9.2021). Interspeech is the lead international conference organised yearly, focused primarily on research and applicability of the technologies on speech/audio. The conference has a high ranking, with acceptance of the accepted papers below 50%.

Contextual adaptation for improving call sign recognition

Contextual adaptation is a technique of “suggesting” small snippets of text that are likely to appear in the speech recognition output. The snippets of text are derived from the current “situation” of the speaker, in our project ATCO this is location and time.

ELRA, the European Language Resources Association, and its distribution agency, ELDA, have been funded in 1995 and have been a world-wide leading player in distributing Language Resources and providing other services to the speech language communities. In the course of the ATCO2 project, ELDA provides legal expertise for the collection of Air Traffic Control Conversations and Data Management in the project.

Bringing together what belongs together: Matching voice commands and radar data

by Petr Motlicek — last modified Nov 30, 2020 12:01 PM
The whole ATCO² Project relies on two input streams. One input stream is represented by the voice command issued by air-traffic controler and the other input stream is provided by the automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast data. An independent collection of both streams makes a matching of the data inevitable. The following lines will give an insight in how the matching process is done.

Automatic speech recognition, how it works?

by Petr Motlicek — last modified Nov 30, 2020 12:01 PM
[Updated, 3.4.2020]: ATCO2 project is closely aligned with the development of automatic speech recognition engines for Air-Traffic Controllers (ATCOs), particularly to automatically transcribe their communication with the pilots. This blogpost is giving some insight into the process of Automatic Speech Recognition, current trends, and some details on how it will be integrated in the ATCO2 project. We are describing Hybrid HMM-based speech recognizer, which is the current state-of-the-art speech recognition paradigm. The literature also suggests end-to-end systems. However, we did not consider using these, due to practical reasons. We use the toolkit Kaldi [1], both for training the baseline models, and processing the untranscribed data.
