Czech title
IARPA - Anonymní řeč v reálném čase (ARTS) - Transformace řeči pro anonymizaci v reálném čase (STARS)

spontaneous speech, speaker de-identification, speech signals, speech transformation, anonymization


IARPA-ARTS Program Summary: The ARTS program aims to develop novel algorithms that will modify spontaneous speech in real-time to protect an individual's privacy. The ARTS program consists of the following three (3) Technical Areas (TA): TA-1 Speaker De-Identification (SDID): Modify speech signals so that Speaker Identification (SID) systems are unable to recognize the speaker. TA-2 Modification of Static Traits in Speech: Remove existing traits in speech signals related to dialect, gender, and age, and replace them with pre-selected traits. TA-3 Removal of Dynamic Traits in Speech: Modify speech signals so that extracted features can't be used to differentiate short term states such as emotion and psychological state.
