Introduction to Deep Learning for Audio and Speech Applications


  • Acquiring, segmenting and labeling audio recordings and ingesting existing datasets
  • Extracting standard speech and audio features and using 2D time-frequency representations
  • Designing and analyzing deep networks and exchanging models with other popular frameworks (e.g. via ONNX)
  • Accelerating computations using GPUs and prototyping trained models on real-world signals
