Biography

Gabriel Mittag received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degree in electrical and electronic engineering at the Technische Universität Berlin. During his master's degree he spent two semesters at the RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia and focused primarily on biomedical and speech signal processing. Since 2016 he is employed as research assistant at the Quality and Usability Lab at the TU Berlin, where he works towards a PhD in the field of Quality of Experience (QoE) of speech communication services. His main interests are in psychoacoustics, quality evaluation, signal processing, and diagnostic speech quality prediction.

Zusammenfassung Crowdsourcing (CS) has established as a powerful tool to collect human input for data acquisition and labeling. However, it remains the question about the validity of the data collected in a CS platform. Sometimes, the users work carelessly or they try to tweak the system to maximize their profits. This paper reports on whether the number of speech stimuli presented to the listeners has an impact on the user perception of certain degradation conditions applied to the speech signal. To this end, a crowdsourcing study has been conducted with 209 listeners that were divided in three non-overlapping user groups, each of which was presented with tasks containing a different number of stimuli: 10, 20, or 40. Listeners were asked to rate speech stimuli with respect to their overall quality and the ratings were collected on a 5-point scale in accordance with ITU-T Rec. P.800. Workers assessed the speech stimuli of the database 501 from ITU-T Rec. P.863. Additionally, the influence of certain speech signal characteristics, such as interruptions and bandwidth, on the quality perception of the workers was investigated.
