Bye year 12,023 of the Human Era, and welcome 12,024. Before the pandemic things were going way too fast and months basically felt like weeks.
ISMIR is back in full swing with over 400 registrations, most of them in-person attendees in the beautiful city of Milan.
TL;DR: we present efficient models for the task of Spoken Language Recognition plus an effective strategy to gracefully handle unsupported languages via multilabel classification.
The beautiful Island of Rhodes welcomed the most prestigious signal processing conference in the world this past week.
TL;DR: we thoroughly analyzed state-of-the-art audio-text multimodal models and they do not fully leverage natural language.
And there you go, the year 12022 of the Human Era gets to an end.
And finally, after 2 years with virtual-only ISMIRs, this year we had the first post-pandemic in-person ISMIR.
I keep seeing wonderful pictures from this year’s Burning Man, and they inspired me to share a terrible one, to counterbalance.
