Researcher position - ROUTE project

Researcher (M/W) in speech separation applied to robotics (Emergence project: ROUTE)
Availability : early May 2015 Duration: 11 months (possible extension to 12 months)

Introduction to IRCAM

IRCAM is a non-profit organization that is associated to the Centre Pompidou (Centre national d’art et de culture Georges Pompidou). Its missions comprise research, production, and education related to contemporary music and its relation to science and technology. Within the R&D department specialized teams are conducting research and development in the areas of acoustics, sound signal processing, interaction, computer music and musicology.

Introduction to ISIR

The Institute for Intelligent Systems and Robotics (ISIR) is a multidisciplinary research laboratory that brings together researchers and academics from different disciplines of Engineering Sciences and Information and the Life Sciences. ISIR is a joint research laboratory between the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS).

Introduction to ROUTE project

ROUTE is a collaborative program directed by the Analysis/Synthesis team at IRCAM and ISIR. The program is focused on the automatic analysis of an acoustic scene, based on a  non-negative decomposition of a multi channel recording of the scene. This research problem is closely related to several applications in sound processing (e.g. source separation, CASA); and it is becoming as well an important problem for many  applications emerging from the fields  of robotics and artificial audition (e.g. guide robots, older adults monitoring, and the general study of human/robot interaction).
The principal aim of the project is to evaluate recent advances in non-negative signal decomposition for detecting and localizing a speaker in a binaural acoustic scene: this study shall allow a robot to identify speech in a background noise, and localise the speaker's position.

Position description

The hired researcher will be in charge of the extension of the existing analysis system to speaker detection and to binaural capture. He/she will realize a study on the impact of the noise made by the robot on the performance of the system. He/she will participate to the elaboration of a simplified realistic test, and to the evaluation of the results, as well as to all activities related to the project (evaluations, meetings, specifications, reports).

Required experiences and skills

  • Excellent knowledge and experience with non negative signal decomposition, especially from multi-channel audio. A PhD in this domain will be highly appreciated.
  • Excellent knowledge and experience in audio signal processing (spectral analysis, audio-feature extraction, parameter estimation)
  • High interest in robotics and human/robot interaction
  • Very proficient in Matlab, experience with Python (NumPY/SciPY), skills in C/C++ programming.
  • Good knowledge of Linux, and/or Mac OS X.
  • High productivity, capacity for methodical and autonomous work, creativity, good communication skills, rigor, and excellent programming style.
