A quick guide to Amazon’s 50-plus ICASSP papers

[ad_1]

Amazon researchers have more than 50 papers at this year’s International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP). A plurality of them are on automatic speech recognition and related topics, such as keyword spotting and speaker identification. But others range farther afield, to topics such as computer vision and federated learning.

This year’s ICASSP includes a virtual component, from May 7 to 13, and an in-person component in Singapore, May 22 to 27.
