[AUDITORY] Audio-Visual Speech Enhancement Challenge (AVSEC-2)

We are currently running a 2nd edition of the COG-MHEAR Audio-Visual Speech Enhancement Challenge (AVSEC-2): https://challenge.cogmhear.org/


AVSEC sets the first benchmark in the field of audio-visual speech enhancement, providing a carefully designed dataset and scalable protocol for human listening evaluation of AV-SE systems. We expect the challenge to bring together interdisciplinary research teams to advance the field of AV-SE and to provide further insight about the scope and limitations of current AV-SE approaches.


Results and further information about the 1st edition can be found here:




AVSEC-2 will be part of ASRU Special Sessions: http://www.asru2023.org/
