MLLP member Alejandro Pérez González de Martos defended successfully today his PhD thesis on “Deep Neural Networks for Automatic Speech-To-Speech Translation of Open Educational Resources” at Universitat Politècnica de València.
This year, the MLLP has participated in the 2021 edition of the Blizzard Challenge, with the neural text-to-speech synthesis system proposed by the MLLP obtaining some of the best results in the challenge.
The articles “Towards simultaneous machine interpretation” and “Europarl-ASR: A Large Corpus of Parliamentary Debates for Streaming ASR Benchmarking and Speech Data Filtering/Verbatimization“, by Alejandro Pérez González de Martos, Gonçal Garcés Díaz-Munío and other MLLP researchers, have been accepted for publication at the ISCA’s Interspeech 2021 conference (CORE A).
The MLLP research group of VRAIN-Universitat Politècnica de València have obtained the first place in the IberSpeech-RTVE 2020 TV Speech-to-Text Challenge, repeating their 2018 victory. This consolidates UPV-VRAIN-MLLP technology as the best in Spain and among the best in the world for live automatic subtitling of TV and broadcast contents.
