Slides: Training neural audio classifiers with few data

During the last summer, I have been a research intern at Telefónica Research (Barcelona). The article “Training neural audio classifiers with few data” is the outcome of this short (but intense!) collaboration with Joan Serrà, where we explored how to train deep learning models with just 1, 2 or 10 audios per class. Check it out on arXiv, and reproduce our results running our code! These slides are the extended version of what I will be presenting next week in ICASSP! See you in Brighton 🙂

arXiv paper & slides: Randomly weighted CNNs for (music) audio classification

A few weeks ago Olga Slizovskaya and I were invited to give a talk to the Centre for Digital Music (C4DM) @ Queen Mary Universtity of London – one of the most renowned music technology research institutions in Europe, and possibly in the world. It’s been an honor, and a pleasure to share our thoughts (and some beers) with you!

The talk was centered in our recent work on music audio tagging, which is available on arXiv, where we study how non-trained (randomly weighted) convolutional neural networks perform as feature extractors for (music) audio classification tasks.

Slides: Deep learning architectures for music audio classification: a personal (re)view

I was invited to give a talk to the Deep Learning for Speech and Language Winter Seminar at the UPC in Barcelona. Since UPC is the university where I did my undergraduate studies, it was a great pleasure to give a talk there!

The talk was centered in my recent work on music audio tagging, which is available on arXiv and is summarized in these previous posts: deep learning architectures for music audio classification, and deep end-to-end learning for music audio tagging at Pandora.

Thanks to @DocXavi for the picture!

Slides: A Wavenet for Speech Denoising

These lasts weeks we have been disseminating our recent work: “A Wavenet for Speech Denoising”. To this end, I gave two talks in the Bay Area of San Francisco: one at Dolby Laboratories and the other one at Pandora Radio — where I am currently doing an internship.

Here my slides.

But Dario (coauthor of the paper) also gave a talk in the Technical University of Munich, and I am excited to share his slides with you — since these have fantastic and very clarifying figures!

Here Dario’s slides deck.

Hopefully, checking our complementary views might help folks better understanding our work.
