This paper presents initial developments towards computational hearing models that move beyond stationary microphone assumptions. We present a particle filtering based system for using localisation cues to track speaker changes in meeting recordings. Recording are made using in-ear binaural microphones worn by a listener whose head is constantly moving. Tracking speaker changes requires simultaneously inferring the perceiver’s head orientation, as any change in relative spatial angle to a… CONTINUE READING
