Aalborg University is represented by the Section for Signal and Information Processing (SIP) in the Department of Electronic Systems. SIP focuses its research activities on multimedia technologies and the sciences that support them – speech, audio and video processing. SIP has more than two decades of experience in R&D in these fields, including the involvement in many EU projects. It has a strong track record in closely collaborating with national and international companies and universities. SIP has a wide range of expertise in speech processing including speech and speaker recognition, noise robustness, speech analysis, speech synthesis and speech coding. It further has expertise in multimodal signal processing, machine learning and interaction system design.
AAU primarily contributes to WP3 on robustness in speaker verification and WP4 on hybrid voice biometrics. Significant amount of effort will be put on developing methods for environmental robustness, investigating attack-specific countermeasures and optimising hybrid mode voice biometric approach. AAU is further involved in WP6 speaker verification platform and WP 7 on test and validation.
