A new MLLP research project, “Multisub: Multilingual subtitling of classrooms and plenary sessions” (2019–2021), has been selected by the Government of Spain for funding under the 2018 Research Challenges call of the Societal Challenges R&D&I Programme 2017–2020.
The MLLP’s Alfons Juan attended the session “Iberspeech-RTVE-Challenge 2018: desarrollo y análisis de resultados“, organized the past 14 November at the Reial Acadèmia d’Enginyeria of Spain in Madrid with Radiotelevisión Española (RTVE) and Universidat de Zaragoza.
The MLLP’s Adrià Giménez Pastor, Joan Albert Silvestre Cerdà and Alfons Juan Ciscar delivered two presentations at the LISTEN Workshop 2018 on far-field large-vocabulary automatic speech recognition (Bonn, Germany, 17–19 July 2018), presenting our group’s recent work in speech recognition and multilingual subtitling of OER.

The article “Speaker-Adapted Confidence Measures for ASR using Deep Bidirectional Recurrent Neural Networks“, by Miguel Ángel del Agua Teba and other MLLP members, has been published as part of the July 2018 issue of the journal IEEE/ACM Transactions on Audio, Speech, and Language Processing.
