AusTalk corpus and the Alveo Virtual Laboratory

LOCATION: Auditorium 1, TEL, Ernst-Reuter-Platz 7, 20th floor

Date/Time: 04.09.2014, 10:00-11:00

SPEAKER: Dominique Estival, University of Western Sydney


I will present the AusTalk corpus and the Alveo Virtual Laboratory, two large-scale Australian projects led by UWS, which arose from the Human Communication Science Network (HCSNet) cross-disciplinary connections and which aim at furthering research across a range of disciplines.
The AusTalk corpus was designed and created through the Big ASC, a collaborative LIEF project with the two main goals of providing a standardised infrastructure for audio-visual recordings in Australia and of producing a large audio-visual corpus of Australian English, with 3 hours of AV recordings for 1000 speaker. I will present the overall project, including the corpus itself and its components, as well as the data collection protocol and the standardisation and automation and the quality control processes.
Funded by the Australian Government National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources (NeCTAR), the Alveo Virtual Laboratory provides a new platform for collaborative research in HCS. The goal is to provide easy access to a variety of communication-relevant resources (including not only text and speech corpora but also music recordings and videos) and for the integrated use of a range of analysis tools, in order to foster inter-disciplinary research and facilitate the discovery of new methods for solving old problems or the application of known methods to new datasets.
