Vocapia Logo Leading edge speech processing technology

Orsay - July 15, 2011

Vocapia Research and LIMSI-CNRS have partnered to provide automatic transcriptions of audiovideo data for two MediaEval 2011 tasks: Genre Tagging and Rich Speech Retrieval.

MediaEval 2011 is using the same corpus used in the 2010 MediaEval Wild Wild Web Tagging Task for which Vocapia and LIMSI had previously provided automatic transcripts. Updated speech-to-text transcriptiion systems have been used to process a multilingual collection of Internet video collected from blip.tv and selected by the PetaMedia Network of Excellence. Most of the data is in English with approximately a total of 6 hours of data spread across the French, Spanish and Dutch languages. All videos were shared by their owners under a Creative Commons license.
