题目：Recent Advances in Speaker Extraction
摘要：Humans have a remarkable ability to pay their auditory attention only to a sound source of interest, that we call selective auditory attention, in a multi-talker environment or a Cocktail Party. However, signal processing approach to speech separation and/or speaker extraction from multi-talker speech remains a challenge for machines. In this talk, we study the deep learning solutions to monaural speaker extraction that enable selective auditory attention. We will discuss the computational auditory models, technical challenges in the field, and some related readings in ICASSP 2020.
