This paper describes the three systems developed by the LIUM for the IWSLT 2011 evaluation campaign. We participated in three of the proposed tasks, namely the Automatic Speech Recognition task (ASR), the ASR system combination task (ASR_SC) and the Spoken Language Translation task (SLT), since these tasks are all related to speech translation. We present(More)
In this paper, we present improvements made to the TED-LIUM corpus we released in 2012. These enhancements fall into two categories. First, we describe how we filtered publicly available monolingual data and used it to estimate well-suited language models (LMs), using open-source tools. Then, we describe the process of selection we applied to new acoustic(More)
This paper presents the system used by the LIUM to participate in ESTER, the french broadcast news evaluation campaign. This system is based on the CMU Sphinx 3.3 (fast) decoder. Some tools are presented which have been added on different steps of the Sphinx recognition process: segmentation, acoustic model adaptation, word-lattice rescoring. Several(More)
This paper presents the corpus developed by the LIUM for Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), based on the TED Talks. This corpus was built during the IWSLT 2011 Evaluation Campaign, and is composed of 118 hours of speech with its accompanying automatically aligned transcripts. We describe the content of the corpus, how the data was collected and processed,(More)
This paper presents an automatic grapheme to phoneme conversion system that uses statistical machine translation techniques provided by the Moses Toolkit. The generated word pronunciations are employed in the dictionary of an automatic speech recognition system and evaluated using the ESTER 2 French broadcast news corpus. Grapheme to phoneme conversion(More)
We investigate the problem of audio-visual (AV) person diarization in broadcast data. That is, automatically associate the faces and voices of people and determine when they appear or speak in the video. The contributions are twofolds. First, we formulate the problem within a novel CRF framework that simultaneously performs the AV association of voices and(More)
—We address the task of identifying people appearing in TV shows. The target persons are all people whose identity is said or written, like the journalists and the well known people, as politicians, athletes, celebrities, etc. In our approach, overlaid names displayed on the images are used to identify the persons without any use of biometric models for the(More)
