This paper summarizes the main results from the Speaker Veriication (SV) research pursued so far in the CAVE project. Diierent state-of-the art SV algorithms were implemented in a common HMM framework and compared on two databases : YOHO (of-ce environment speech) and SESP (telephone speech). This paper is concerned with the diierent design issues for(More)
The issue of a priori threshold setting in speaker veri-cation is a key problem for eld applications. In the context of the CAVE project, we compared several methods for estimating speaker-independent and speaker-dependent decision thresholds. Relevant parameters are estimated from development data only, i.e. without resorting to additional client data. The(More)

This paper describes the PMA research project in progress, whose aim is to develop a concept for personalized mobile route guidance and information for air passengers with disabilities (PWDs), and to implement this concept step by step. The PMA guides PWDs along their route from home to the desired departure gate (or vice-versa: from landing to(More)
Many businesses, such as banks, will soon be under pressure to improve the functionality and friendliness of their telephone-based services without compromising security. Current automatic services authenticate callers with a PIN-code and consequently are not secure enough to ooer callers the chance to carry out signiicant transactions; more sophisticated(More)
The rapid increase in mobile phone use in young people has generated concern about possible health effects of exposure to radiofrequency (RF) and extremely low frequency (ELF) electromagnetic fields (EMF). MOBI-Kids, a multinational case-control study, investigates the potential effects of childhood and adolescent exposure to EMF from mobile communications(More)
Banks, amongst other businesses, will soon be under a great deal of pressure to improve the range and friendliness of their telephone-based services without compromising transaction security. Currently, automatic telephone services authenticate callers using a PIN-code and consequently do not offer a sufficient level of security for significant(More)
Phthalates are multifunctional chemicals used in a wide variety of consumer products. The aim of this study was to investigate whether levels of urinary phthalate metabolites in urine samples of Austrian mothers and their children were associated with consumer habits and health indicators. Within an Austrian biomonitoring survey, urine samples from 50(More)
