I work within the broader speech group at Idiap Research Institute, with particular focus on the conjunction of speech recognition and speech synthesis with physiologically plausible systems. Here is a short bio.
A (possibly incomplete) list of my patents. They are mainly US, but in practice most of these began life as either GB or Japan patents; the US ones are just easier to reference.
Other technical reports that are not commercial in confidence or published elsewhere. The list includes some MPEG submissions that made it into MPEG-7.
Look at the URL above and figure out my email address. It'll probably get here. Otherwise try the contact page.
ISS is a framework for building and evaluating ASR models.
SSP is a signal processing library in python. It contains, amongst other things, a feature extractor and continuous pitch estimator. Some functionality of SSP is duplicated in a C++ version called libssp.
Although it is not currently under active development, I maintain the Juicer collection of ASR decoders. However, I wrote and actively maintain Tracter, a data-fow framework that forms the feature acquisition mechanism of Juicer. Tracter wraps several other packages, including libssp.
More recent work is on my GitHub page.
