Four Short Links
  1.

Such a system might be useful for humanitarian applications like crisis response, where incoming speech must be quickly assessed for further action.
  2. Synthetic Data Sets: A Non-Technical Primer For The Biobehavioral Sciences — respecting confidentiality by generating data sets that preserve their statistical properties and relationships between variables while varying the specific data.
