Hotword Sifter - Make Google Home hear you in cocktail parties

CCRMA-Stanford University - Tue, 02/27/2018 - 19:08
Date:  Fri, 03/16/2018 - 10:30am - 12:00pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room Event Type:  Hearing Seminar It's the last unsolved problem in speech recognition.  :-)  How does one use minimal resources to recognize hotwords like "Hey Google" or "Alexa", in the face of noisy 24x7 environments. These keywords (or hotwords) are the signal to turn on full speech recognition on the new generation of always listening devices, and the hotword must be recognized accurately, and in multiple acoustic environments. Recognizing these keywords must be done on the device, as nobody wants all their speech transmitted to the cloud.
