Joint Learning of Speaker and Phonetic Similarities with Siamese Networks

Interspeech 2016

We scale up the feasibility of jointly learning specialized speaker and phone embeddings architectures to the 360 hours of the Librispeech corpus by implementing a sampling method to efficiently select pairs of words from the dataset and improving the loss function.

Desugaring Haskell’s Do-Notation into Applicative Operations

ACM SIGPLAN Haskell Sympoisum

In this paper we show how to re-use the very same do-notation to work for Applicatives as well, providing efficiency benefits for some types that are both Monad and Applicative, and syntactic convenience for those that are merely Applicative.

Synergy of Monotonic Rules


This article describes a method for constructing a special rule (we call it synergy rule) that uses as its input information the outputs (scores) of several monotonic rules which solve the same pattern recognition problem.
