Machine learning for multimedia processing


I work with kernel mappings of audio sequences, discriminant and generative classification methods and non-linear dimensionality reduction algorithms.

I work on general purpose descriptors for audio and images. I segment speech and identify basic phonetic units on the signal.

I am interested in automatic structuring of hypermedia documents. The task involves several technologies: parameters extraction, pattern recognition, indexing, clustering, fuse of decisions, information retrieval and document modelling.
