Centre for Advanced Nuclear Technologies

CANUT defines the system for long term cooperation in RaDaI among research organizations and significant industrial companies participating in the project through partnership. The reason for CANUT project is building a strategic partnership among the members of the nuclear technologies consortium, where participants are internationally respected research institutes and industrial companies with a long term tradition. These technologies belong to the key and prestigious RaD topics in the world.

Automatic voice banking and reconstruction for patients after total laryngectomy

The main objective of the project is to develop a system enabling fully automated voice conservation (voice banking), with focus on patients with a total laryngectomy diagnosis. The system will be based on the efficient integration of a subsystem for automatic (unsupervised) recording of a patient’s original voice, of a subsystem for fully automated voice reconstruction from the recordings using a personalized speech synthesizer, and of a methodology for optimal incorporation of the voice conservation process into the treatment of ENT patients.

Intelligent Electronic Record of the Operation and Vehicle Performance

The goal of the project is to design and implement a system that will substitute the need for the manually created record of data concerning the operation and performance of vehicles and machinery by allowing
direct creation of a digital record. The implemented solution should eliminate the operator errors to a maximum possible degree and, at the same time, it should not reduce the information content of the record (and, consequently, its usability).

Combining phonetic and corpus-based approaches to remedy disruptive effects in synthetic speech

The project builds upon our previous activities in the field of computer speech processing and aims at basic research into speech synthesis. The key idea in the proposed project is to confront phonetic knowledge of the characteristics of natural speech with the characteristics present in synthetic speech and to exploit the acquired know-how to remedy disruptive effects in synthetic speech and to enhance the performance of corpus-based speech-synthesis techniques. Emphasis will be placed on a thorough analysis of contemporary problems perceived in synthetic speech, identification of relevant phonetic parameters crucial for the quality of synthetic speech and the use of such phonetically justified patterns to drive the latest corpus-based speech synthesis techniques. Special attention will be given to automatic prediction of synthesis errors and to the corresponding signal modification/generation.
