Author Information

Samuel Myer (fluent.ai)

I am a software engineer working at Montreal-based startup fluent.ai. I am involved in research and development of low-footprint speech recognition software. We are working towards speech recognition which works in any language, respects user privacy, and is robust to noise.

Jan Kremer is a senior machine learning researcher at Corti in Denmark. There he works on automatic speech recognition in critical conversations. He is particularly interested in multi-task and robust learning. After receiving an MSc in Computer Science from the Technical University of Munich in 2013, he obtained a PhD in Machine Learning from the University of Copenhagen in 2016.

Mirco Ravanelli (Montreal Istitute for Learning Algorithms)

I received my master's degree in Telecommunications Engineering (full marks and honours) from the University of Trento, Italy in 2011. I then joined the SHINE research group (led by Prof. Maurizio Omologo) of the Bruno Kessler Foundation (FBK), contributing to some projects on distant-talking speech recognition in noisy and reverberant environments, such as DIRHA and DOMHOS. In 2013 I was visiting researcher at the International Computer Science Institute (University of California, Berkeley) working on deep neural networks for large-vocabulary speech recognition in the context of the IARPA BABEL project (led by Prof. Nelson Morgan). I received my PhD (with cum laude distinction) in Information and Communication Technology from the University of Trento in December 2017. During my PhD I worked on “deep learning for distant speech recognition”, with a particular focus on recurrent and cooperative neural networks (see my PhD thesis here). In the context of my PhD I recently spent 6 months in the MILA lab led by Prof. Yoshua Bengio. I'm currently a post-doc researcher at the University of Montreal, working on deep learning for speech recognition in the MILA Lab.
