Neural speech-to-text translation

Primary supervisor

Reza Haffari

In this project, we are interested to translate speech to text. This can be used for translating a speaker who speaks in French to English in order to make it understandable by an English speaking person.

There are various aspects to this project, including (but not limited to): (i) handling multi-modal speech and text data, and (ii) producing simultaneous translations. This project involves innovating interesting models to address different aspects of this problem (eg [1,2]).
