Recognition and Understanding of Meetings The AMI and AMIDA Projects

The AMI and AMIDA projects are concerned with the recognition and interpretation of multiparty meetings. Within these projects we have: developed an infrastructure for recording meetings using multiple microphones and cameras; released a 100 hour annotated corpus of meetings; developed techniques for the recognition and interpretation of meetings based primarily on speech recognition and computer vision; and developed an evaluation framework at both component and system levels. In this paper we present an overview of these projects, with an emphasis on speech recognition and content extraction.
