The SpeechTek Lab at Fondazione Bruno Kessler investigates AI-based solutions for speech technologies, addressing a variety of speech related tasks: automatic speech recognition (ASR), speech enhancement and separation, spoken language understanding, speaker identification, automatic language learning and other speech and audio applications. The group is particularly interested in the application of AI topical research directions to the speech context, such as: continual learning, large-scale models, self-supervised adaptation, edge processing. These are key features towards an effective and efficient deployment of speech technologies in real-life conditions and are being investigated also in multi-modal (audio-visual) scenarios. Finally, the group has also a long-lasting experience in customization of ASR services.

The group is part of the Digital Society center.
