Does over-reliance on auditory feedback cause disfluency? An fMRI study of induced fluency in people who stutter [article]

Sophie Meekings, Kyle Jasmin, Cesar F Lima, Sophie K Scott
2020 bioRxiv   pre-print
In a 1.5T fMRI scanner, people who stutter spoke in synchrony with an experimenter, in synchrony with a recording, on their own, in noise, listened to the experimenter speaking and read silently.  ...  Behavioural testing outside the scanner demonstrated that synchronising with another talker resulted in a marked increase in fluency regardless of baseline stuttering severity.  ...  Listen: Participants saw the prompt, 'LISTEN' and read the sentence silently while hearing a recording of the experimenter reading it aloud. 6.  ...

Distinct neural systems recruited when speech production is modulated by different masking sounds

Sophie Meekings, Samuel Evans, Nadine Lavan, Dana Boebinger, Katya Krieger-Redwood, Martin Cooke, Sophie K. Scott
2016 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
Subjects also spoke in quiet and listened to the maskers without speaking. When subjects spoke in masking sounds, their vocal intensity increased in line with the energetic content of the masker.  ...  Most behavioural research and neuroimaging research in this area has concentrated on the effect of energetic maskers such as white noise on Lombard speech.  ...  Within each of the two ROIs an ANOVA was carried out to evaluate differences between the SpeakNoise conditions (SP, ROT, SMN, WH) relative to the baseline of silent reading.

Implementing fail-silent nodes for distributed systems

F.V. Brasileiro, P.D. Ezhilchelvan, S.K. Shrivastava, N.A. Speirs, S. Tao
1996 IEEE transactions on computers  
In this paper the design and implementation of efficient protocols for a two processor fail-silent node are described in detail.  ...  In a software-implemented fail-silent node, the non-faulty processors of the node need to execute message order and comparison protocols to 'keep in step' and check each other respectively.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This work has been supported in part by grants from the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and the Brazilian Research Council (CNPq).  ...

CochleaNet: A Robust Language-independent Audio-Visual Model for Speech Enhancement [article]

Mandar Gogate, Kia Dashtipour, Ahsan Adeel, Amir Hussain
2019 arXiv   pre-print
To evaluate the proposed SE framework a first of its kind AV binaural speech corpus, called ASPIRE, is recorded in real noisy environments including cafeteria and restaurant.  ...  In noisy settings, humans routinely exploit the audio-visual (AV) nature of the speech to selectively suppress the background noise and to focus on the target speaker.  ...  Therefore, to experimentally evaluate the trained AV CochleaNet behaviour in such conditions we randomly replaced a percentage of lip images with a blank visual frame.  ...

Integration and Comparison of Three Physical Fault Injection Techniques [chapter]

Johan Karlsson, Peter Folkesson, Jean Arlat, Yves Crouzet, Günther Leber
1995 Predictably Dependable Computing Systems  
The hardware EDMs, in particular the CPU mechanisms, detected most of the errors. This is not surprising since the faults were injected into the CPU.  ...  In particular, the coverage of the NMI EDMs is higher in the former case. Unexpected exceptions occur with a frequency of about 15% in all combinations.  ...  Section 4 defines the approach considered for the experimental evaluation and the predicates characterising the behaviour of the target system in the presence of injected faults.  ...
