On the CoVoST-2 speech translation benchmark, we improve the previous state of the art by an average of 7. 4 BLEU over 21 translation directions into English.
While self-supervised speech representation learning has been popular in the speech research community, very few works have comprehensively analyzed audio representation learning for non-speech audio tasks.
Language identification greatly impacts the success of downstream tasks such as automatic speech recognition.
Although speaker verification has conventionally been an audio-only task, some practical applications provide both audio and visual streams of input.

Many semi- and weakly-supervised approaches have been investigated for overcoming the labeling cost of building high quality speech recognition systems.

Supervised ASR models have reached unprecedented levels of accuracy, thanks in part to ever-increasing amounts of labelled training data.
Towards developing high-performing ASR for low-resource languages, approaches to address the lack of resources are to make use of data from multiple languages, and to augment the training data by creating acoustic variations.
