Short bio (https://shine.fbk.eu/people/profile/mravanelli)
Mirco Ravanelli received his master’s degree in Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Trento, Italy in 2011. He then joined the Bruno Kessler Foundation (FBK), contributing to the some projects on distant-talking speech recognition in noisy and reverberant environments, such as DIRHA and DOMHOS. In 2013 he was visiting researcher at the International Computer Science Institute (University of California, Berkeley) working on deep neural networks for large-vocabulary speech recognition. The primary focus of my PhD is on Deep Neural Networks for Distant-Talking (Far-Field) Speech Recognition, with a particular focus on the domestic environment.
The reward of $ 1,500 was awarded to Mirco Ravanelli, first author of the paper by FBK and University of Montreal (Canada).March 31, 2017
