It was cool to meet the Speech and Audio Processing Lab from EEE today to present some of the projects we work on and to be able to share knowledge between the teams. It is always good to hear about our common research field from a different perspective!
It was fantastic to have Kathi Pollack from the Acoustics Research Institute in Vienna visit us last week here at Imperial. It was great the hear about her work on pinna registration for calculating personalised head-related transfer functions.
Great to have our SONICOM partners at Schallforschung ÖAW and LAM – ∂’Alembert visit us for a day in London. Many fruitful discussions were had on how to model our ears.
Really happy to announce that Simon’s work has been accepted at APSIPA in Chiang Mai, Thailand in November 2022. S. McKnight, A. Hogg, V. Neo, and P. Naylor: Studying Human-Based Speaker Diarization and Comparing to State-Of-The-Art Systems. In: Proc. Asia-Pacific Signal and Inform. Process. Assoc. Annual Summit and Conf. (APSIPA ASC), 2022.
Thank you to Huawei for visiting us here at Imperial to discuss the future of 3D Audio!
It was great to be able to attend the UKAN+ annual meeting (on maximising the impact of acoustics) in Manchester yesterday. I greatly enjoy being part of this community! Click Here for more details.
Really encouraging to have Vincent’s work accepted for IWAENC in Bamberg, Germany in September 2022. V. Neo, S. Weiss, S. McKnight, A. Hogg and P. Naylor: Polynomial Eigenvalue Decomposition-Based Target Speaker Voice Activity Detection in the Presence of Competing Talkers. In: Proc. International Workshop on Acoustic Signal Enhancement (IWAENC), 2022.
Really sad that Simon is leaving us here at Imperial but wishing him all the best! I am sure you will achieve great things at Cambridge. Good luck, Simon!
Dies Elegantiarum is a long-term tradition in Design Engineering (we had the first one in 2016, and we didn’t miss a year since); it consists in coming to work that day dressed up using your best and smartest attire.
Thank you L-Acoustics for hosting an event for the UK Acoustics Network’s special interest group in Spatial Acoustics and Immersive Audio at your London showroom.
