Research fellowship – LIMSI

During the month of November 2015, Alina-Ioana BĂNICĂ, a 1st year student in the BIOSINF Master’s program, worked as a research fellow with the speech processing team at Laboratoire d’Informatique pour la Mécanique et les Sciences de l’Ingénieur (LIMSI), Paris, France. The fellowship position was held as part of the ANVSIB research project, focusing on the analysis and modeling of vowel sequences in romance languages in order to identify characteristics that lead to errors in automatic speech recognition systems. The analysis was done on a database of transcribed speech (televised news reports) comprising approximately 300,000 phonemes.
