Title: Towards speech-based biomarkers
Speaker: Dr. Mathew Magimai Doss, Idiap Research Institute and EPFL, Switzerland
Host: Prof. Chandra Sekhar Seelamantula, EE, IISc
Date and time: July 27, 2022; 3 PM (Coffee will be served during the talk.)
Venue: Multimedia Classroom, Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Science
Abstract:Speech communication is an essential part of our lives, which can undergo short-term and long-term changes at paralinguistic level due to several reasons such as, emotion, mood, stress, drinking, speech pathology, neurological speech and language disorders (e.g., Parkinson’s Disease (PD), Alzheimer’s Diseases). So, there is a thrust to develop speech-based methods to detect such short-term and long-term changes for clinical applications. In this talk, I will present a few research and development activities that I am involved in in that direction.Specifically, I will talk about (a) pathological speech processing, (b) joint modeling of speech and physiological signals, and (c) developmentof closed-loop deep brain stimulation with PD patient’s symptoms in loop.
Biography of the Speaker: Dr. Mathew Magimai Doss received the Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) in Instrumentation and Control Engineering from the University of Madras, India in 1996; the Master of Science (M.S.) by Research in Computer Science and Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India in 1999; the PreDoctoral diploma and the Docteur ès Sciences (Ph.D.) from the Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland in 2000 and 2005, respectively. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI),Berkeley, USA from April 2006 till March 2007. He is now a Senior Researcher at the Idiap Research Institute, Martigny, Switzerland. He is also a lecturer at EPFL. His main research interest lies in signal processing, statistical pattern recognition, artificial neural networks and computational linguistics with applications to speech and audio processing and multimodal signal processing. He is a Senior Area Editor of the IEEE Signal Processing Letters. He is also an Associate Editor of the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Audio, Speech, and Language Processing.
All are invited.
