Audio Search Engines

H. Meng

Audio search engines enable us to search through the mass of audio information that is available on the internet, e.g. audio tracks of video, radio broadcasts, meeting recordings, etc. This project combines speech processing and information retrieval technologies to facilitate audio search and retrieval. Features such as automatic segmentation of hours of audio into individual stories, retrieval of Chinese spoken recordings based on textual input queries and also cross-language English-Chinese spoken document retrieval are also possible.
