Speech enhancement and speech separation are two related tasks, whose purpose is to extract either one or more target speech signals, respectively, from a mixture of sounds generated by several sources. Traditionally, these tasks have been tackled using signal processing and machine learning techniques applied to the available acoustic signals. Since the visual aspect of speech is essentially unaffected by the acoustic environment, visual information from the target speakers, such as lip movements and facial expressions, has also been used for speech enhancement and speech separation systems.
In order to efficiently fuse acoustic and visual information, researchers have exploited the flexibility of data-driven approaches, specifically deep learning, achieving strong performance. The ceaseless proposal of a large number of techniques to extract features and fuse multimodal information has highlighted the need for an overview that comprehensively describes and discusses audio-visual speech enhancement and separation based on deep learning.
In this webinar, we provide a survey of this research topic. We also survey commonly employed audio-visual speech datasets, given their central role in the development of data-driven approaches, and evaluation methods, because they are generally used to compare different systems and determine their performance.


Daniel Michelsanti

Dr. Daniel Michelsanti (S'16 M'21) received the B.Sc. degree in computer science and electronic engineering (cum laude) at the University of Perugia, Italy, and the M.Sc. degree in vision, graphics and interactive systems at Aalborg University, Denmark, in 2014 and 2017, respectively. He also received his PhD degree from Aalborg University, Denmark, in 2021, where he investigated the problem of audio-visual speech enhancement using deep learning.
He was then employed as a research assistant at the section for Artificial Intelligence and Sound (AIS), Department of Electronic Systems, Aalborg University, Denmark, where he conducted research on acoustic signal analysis for industry 4.0. Currently, he is an industrial postdoctoral researcher at Oticon and Aalborg University.
Dr. Michelsanti’s research interests are in the areas of speech enhancement, computer vision and machine learning, specifically deep learning.
