It draws on a plethora of Non-Western thinkers such as Frantz Fanon, Aimé Césaire, Al-Afghani, Gandhi, Soekarno, Kwame Nkrumah, and Edward Said, among others. The course thus introduces students to several important political figures and concepts/issues from the...

We trained a long-short-term-memory (LSTM)-neural network on time series generated with an agent-based model that was designed to differentiate the drivers of its dynamics into external and internal forces, with the internal ones stemming from neighbourhood interaction considered as ‘social’ influence. The trained LSTM proved capable of predicting...

Target speaker extraction (TSE) aims to mimic human selective attention to extracting our interested voice from the multi-talker environment. Time-domain methods represented by SpEx+ have promoted the process of TSE tasks while residual noise, squeaks, and over-suppression still exist in the extracted speech. In this paper, we explore three ways to...
