A Giant Leap for Keyword Spotting

Project description

Spotting keywords with an eye to the present and the future

Keyword spotting (KWS), the detection of keywords from an audio stream comprising speech, is a pivotal speech technology implemented in a variety of electronic devices that use voice integration. Although the performance of speech technologies is being increasingly enhanced, the issue of quality degradation due to acoustic distortions remains. The EU-funded AGILE-KWS project aspires to advance KWS technology by researching and developing innovative state-of-the-art acoustic distortion-robust methods. AGILE-KWS will use concepts successfully applied to automatic speech recognition to expand KWS performance in real-world acoustic conditions. The focuses are the preservation of NASA’s Apollo mission speech recordings and the upgrading of voice-based interaction with hearing assistive devices.
