This study presents an approach to the task of automatically classifying and detecting speaking styles. The detection of speaking styles is useful for the segmentation of multimedia data into consistent parts and has important applications , such as identifying speech segments to train acoustic models for speech recognition. In this work the database(More)
Obesity, insulin resistance, and aging are closely associated and adipokines seem to have a crucial role in their pathophysiology. We aim to study the relationship between aging and chemerin, adiponectin, and leptin levels in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Age correlated positively with chemerin and leptin and inversely with adiponectin. Body mass index(More)
In this paper, we describe the " Query by Example Search on Speech Task " (QUESST), held as part of the MediaEval 2015 evaluation campaign. As in previous years, the proposed task requires performing language-independent audio search in a low resource scenario. This year, the task has been designed to get as close as possible to a practical use case(More)
Aim. Our aim was to study how different BMI scores may influence the levels of inflammation, oxidative stress, adipogenesis, glucose, and lipid metabolism, in lean, overweight, and obese Portuguese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Methods. We studied 28 lean, 38 overweight, and 17 obese patients with T2DM and 20 controls (gender and age(More)
— Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) technology plays an important role in the automation architectures of several critical infrastructures such as Industrial Control Systems (ICS), controlling equipment in contexts such as chemical processes, factory lines, power production plants or power distribution grids, just to mention a few examples. Despite their(More)
This document briefly describes the system submitted by the Speech Processing Lab of Instituto de Telecomunicações, pole of Coimbra (SPLIT) to the Query by Example Search on Speech Task (QUESST) of MediaEval 2014. Our approach is based on merging results of a phoneme recognition system using three different languages. A version of Dynamic Time Warping (DTW)(More)
