The perception of one’s own voice influences the acceptance of hearing devices, such as headphones, headsets or hearing aids. When these devices fully or partially occlude the ear canal, the wearer’s own voice sounds boomy or like talking in a barrel. This is called occlusion effect . Occluding the ear canal results in an amplification of body-conducted sounds, mainly at low frequencies, and an attenuation of air-conducted sounds, predominantly at high frequencies, compared to the open ear. 

Transcribing structural data into readable text (data-to-text) is a fundamental language generation task. One of its challenges is to plan the input records for text realization. Recent works tackle this problem with a static planner, which performs record planning in advance for text realization. However, they cannot revise plans to cope with unexpected realized text and require golden plans for supervised training. To address these issues, we first propose a model that contains a dynamic planner.

We present a scalable and efficient neural waveform coding system for speech compression. We formulate the speech coding problem as an autoencoding task, where a convolutional neural network (CNN) performs encoding and decoding as a neural waveform codec (NWC) during its feedforward routine. The proposed NWC also defines quantization and entropy coding as a trainable module, so the coding artifacts and bitrate control are handled during the optimization process.

Automatically solving math word problems is a critical task in the field of natural language processing. Recent models have reached their performance bottleneck and require more high-quality data for training. We propose a novel data augmentation method that reverses the mathematical logic of math word problems to produce new high-quality math problems and introduce new knowledge points that can benefit learning the mathematical reasoning logic. 

Spoken multiple-choice question answering (SMCQA) requires machines to select the correct choice to answer the question by referring to the passage, where the passage, the question, and multiple choices are all in the form of speech. While the audio could contain useful cues for SMCQA, usually only the auto-transcribed text is utilized in model development. Thanks to the large-scaled pre-trained language representation models, such as the bidirectional encoder representations from Transformers (BERT), systems with only auto-transcribed text can still achieve a certain level of performance. 

Sarcasm is commonly used in today's social media platforms such as Twitter and Reddit. Sarcasm detection is necessary for analysing people's real sentiments as people usually use sarcasm to express a flipped emotion against the literal meaning. However, the current works neglect the fact that commonsense knowledge is crucial for sarcasm recognition.

Attention-based end-to-end (E2E) automatic speech recognition (ASR) architectures are now the state-of-the-art in terms of recognition performance. However, despite their effectiveness, they have not been widely applied in keyword search (KWS) tasks yet. In this paper, we propose the Att-E2E-KWS architecture, an attention-based E2E ASR framework for KWS that can afford accurate and reliable keyword retrieval results. 

Automatic speech recognition (ASR) technologies have been significantly advanced in the past few decades. However, recognition of overlapped speech remains a highly challenging task to date. To this end, multi-channel microphone array data are widely used in current ASR systems.

In music source separation, the number of sources may vary for each piece and some of the sources may belong to the same family of instruments, thus sharing timbral characteristics and making the sources more correlated. This leads to additional challenges in the source separation problem.

A key task for speech recognition systems is to reduce the mismatch between training and evaluation data that is often attributable to speaker differences. Speaker adaptation techniques play a vital role to reduce the mismatch. Model-based speaker adaptation approaches often require sufficient amounts of target speaker data to ensure robustness.
