Launch of SpeechBrain, an open-source toolbox based on PyTorch

We are happy to announce the SpeechBrain project, that aims to develop an open-source all-in-one toolkit based on PyTorch. The goal is to develop a single, flexible, and user-friendly toolkit that can be used to easily develop state-of-the-art speech systems for speech recognition (both end-to-end and HMM-DNN), speaker recognition, speech separation, multi-microphone signal processing (e.g, beamforming), self-supervised learning, and many others.

The project will be lead by Mila and is sponsored by Samsung, Nvidia, Dolby

SpeechBrain will also benefit from the collaboration and expertise of other companies such as Facebook/@PyTorch, IBMResearch, FluentAI.Check out speechbrain.github.io!
