    In this work, we give a description of the TALP-UPC systems submitted for the WMT19 Biomedical Translation Task. Our proposed strategy is NMT model-independent and relies only on one ingredient, a biomedical terminology ...
  • BERT masked language modeling for co-reference resolution 

    Alfaro, Felipe; Ruiz Costa-Jussà, Marta; Rodríguez Fonollosa, José Adrián (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper explains the TALP-UPC participation for the Gendered Pronoun Resolution shared-task of the 1st ACL Workshop on Gender Bias for Natural Language Processing. We have implemented two models for mask language modeling ...
  • Wav2Pix: speech-conditioned face generation using generative adversarial networks

    Cyberbullying is the use of digital media to harass a person or group of people, through personal attacks, disclosure of confidential or false information, among other means. That is to say, it ...
  • UPC multimodal speaker diarization system for the 2018 Albayzin challenge 

    India Massana, Miquel Àngel; Sagastiberri, Itziar; Palau Puigdevall, Ponç; Sayrol Clols, Elisa; Morros Rubió, Josep Ramon; Hernando Pericás, Francisco Javier (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents the UPC system proposed for the Multimodal Speaker Diarization task of the 2018 Albayzin Challenge. This approach works by processing individually the speech and the image signal. In the speech domain, ...
  • Restricted Boltzmann Machine vectors for speaker clustering 

    Khan, Umair; Safari, Pooyan; Hernando Pericás, Francisco Javier (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2018)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Restricted Boltzmann Machines (RBMs) have been used both in the front-end and backend of speaker verification systems. In this work, we apply RBMs as a front-end in the context of speaker clustering. Speakers' utterances ...
  • End-to-end speech translation with the transformer 

    Cross Vila, Laura; Escolano Peinado, Carlos; Rodríguez Fonollosa, José Adrián; Ruiz Costa-Jussà, Marta (Antonio Bonafonte, Jordi Luque and Francesc Alías Pujol, 2018)
    Conference lecture
