Speaker Comparison for Forensic and Investigative Applications

Privacy Issues in Speech Data Collection and Usage
Tuesday, September 8, 2015, 16:30–17:30, Large Hall
In earlier years, the anonymity of the data and the privacy of the speakers was tacitly assumed to be preserved by not revealing speakers’ names or other identifying information, and metadata was restricted “reasonably” for research use. However, with current speaker recognition technology, it is no longer clear whether the anonymity of speech data and the privacy of the speakers are still protected adequately.
Wednesday, September 9, 2015, 12:30–14:00, Large Hall
This special event is dedicated to standards in speech and multimodal technology. Three distinguished panelists representing different standardization bodies will be discussing a variety of topics concerning standardization activities with the audience.
