Unsupervised Cross-lingual Representation Learning for Speech Recognition

24 Jun 2020Alexis ConneauAlexei BaevskiRonan CollobertAbdelrahman MohamedMichael Auli

This paper presents XLSR which learns cross-lingual speech representations by pretraining a single model from the raw waveform of speech in multiple languages. We build on a concurrently introduced self-supervised model which is trained by solving a contrastive task over masked latent speech representations and jointly learns a quantization of the latents shared across languages...
