  •  EVENT    John Hershey to present tutorial at the 2016 IEEE SLT Workshop
  • Date:

    Tuesday, December 13, 2016

  • Location:

    2016 IEEE Spoken Language Technology Workshop, San Diego, California

  • Description:

    MERL researcher John Hershey presents an invited tutorial at the 2016 IEEE Workshop on Spoken Language Technology, in San Diego, California. The topic, "developing novel deep neural network architectures from probabilistic models" stems from MERL work with collaborators Jonathan Le Roux and Shinji Watanabe, on a principled framework that seeks to improve our understanding of deep neural networks, and draws inspiration for new types of deep network from the arsenal of principles and tools developed over the years for conventional probabilistic models. The tutorial covers a range of parallel ideas in the literature that have formed a recent trend, as well as their application to speech and language.
