Scientific last news

  • I am the author and developper of SPPAS - Automatic Annotation of Speech, which includes 7 automatic annotations (Momel and INTSINT, IPUs-segmentation, Tokenization, Phonetization, Forced-Alignement, Syllabification, and Self-Repetitions detection), and 6 components for the analysis of annotated data.
  • I am interested in finding a solution to extract/filter/select annotated data (multimodal data in particular) directly from annotated corpora, even if they are not structured.
