Automatic Speaker Recognition (ASR) as Biometric System

Speech as an Art form

  • If we closely observe ourselves, each one of us can effectively manipulate a mundane activity like exhalation and turn it into meaningful art forms of self-expression either in the form of speech or singing.
  • Like self-expression, imitation is also considered an art and we appreciate great artists, who can successfully do so. But could such skills be used to forge biometric security systems?
  • ASR has developed from IBM’s Shoebox to today’s Siri on an iPhone. Could voice-based recognition system that we use to access our phone today be as reliable as we think?

PhD Position in Biomedical Signal Processing in Sweeden

The PhD student position concerns own research and education within the area of biomedical signal processing. This area is focused on the development of mathematical models and algorithms for the analysis of biomedical signals. The present research project deals with novel methods for compression and characterization of signals reflecting local electrical activity in the brain. Of particular interest is to analyze the propagation, causality, and dynamics of such signals. The research is pursued in collaboration with the Neuronano Research Center at Lund University, where one postdoctor is active and will co-supervise the PhD student.
