AHRC Early Career Grant Success

Carmen Llamas and I have been awarded an AHRC Early Career Grant for our project ‘Humans and machines: novel methods for testing speaker recognition performance’. The project will compare the performance of lay listeners and automatic speaker recognition systems at distinguishing between same- and different-speaker pairs of voices, as well as examining the effect of contextual information on human responses. As part of the project, we will be collaborating with the Digital Creativity Labs to create a computer game to elicit data from our human participants, allowing us to also assess the viability of using games to collect forensic phonetic and linguistic data.

More information on the project can be found here.
