Organisation – Work Packages

The organisation of OCTAVE in Work packages reflects the breakdown into units of work that can carried out in parallel, while synchronizing at some well defined verification points (milestones). The project consists of:

  • two management and dissemination-related WPs;
  • two technological WPs dealing with the creation of anti-spoofing and noice enhancement modules, to improve robustness in speaker verification, and with combined (hybrid) approach of distinct voice biometric engines, to boost the success rate of the Speaker Verification;
  • a methodology-framework WP ensuring that all relevant standards and procedures for personal data protection are applied,
  • a WP in charge of developing the Speaker Verification platform, by integrating existing leading-edge technology (baseline) with modules developed in the Project;
  • a WP to test all components of the Speaker Verification Platform with respect to performance targets and figures;
  • a WP to exercise the OCTAVE platform on two Applications of major business impact
