ISCApad #267

Thursday, September 10, 2020 by Chris Wellekens

3-3-7 (2020-10-?) The VoicePrivacy2020 Challenge Evaluation Plan

The VoicePrivacy 2020 Challenge Evaluation Plan is available on the website: VoicePrivacy initiative Challenge is spearheading the effort to develop privacy preservation solutions for speech technology. It aims to gather a new community to define the task and metrics and to benchmark initial solutions using common datasets, protocols and metrics. VoicePrivacy takes the form of a competitive challenge. The challenge is to develop anonymization solutions which suppress personally identifiable information contained within speech signals. At the same time, solutions should preserve linguistic content and speech quality/naturalness. The challenge will conclude with a session/event held in conjunction with Interspeech 2020 at which challenge results will be made publicly available.
