Online - Zoom webinar

Abstract: What will happen when microphones are everywhere in our smart cities and buildings? From analysing acoustic scenes to monitoring building occupancy levels, there are many opportunities to exploit speech and audio to contribute to well-being experiences. But there remains a persistent question about the barriers that need to be overcome in order for people to feel safe and to develop trust for these technologies. This talk explores how issues of trust, security, and privacy intersect as we move ever closer toward real-world deployment of smart audio technologies in everyday life.
