Project Idea: Galaxy Wrapper for SIDEKIT

This is one of a series of posts describing projects related to Alveo that might be suitable for Computer Science students to take on as a class project.

SIDEKIT is a speech processing library from Anthony Larcher & Kong Aik Lee & Sylvain Meignier of LIUM, Université du Maine in France.

The toolkit provides a Python interface to a collection of routines for speaker and language identification, including:

  • Acoustic features extraction
  • Modeling and classification
  • Presentation of the results

This looks like a good candidate to be turned into a set of tools for the Galaxy workflow engine to allow speaker and language identification workflows to be developed.  As an outcome of the project, the student could develop a number of workflows to illustrate speaker and language identification experiments that evaluate the performance of SIDEKIT on data from the Alveo platform.
