Research Scientist / Chargé de Recherche
Inria Nancy – Grand Est
Lecture title: “Datasets and Challenges in Robot Audition”.
Antoine Deleforge is a tenured research scientist with Inria since January 2016. He started in the PANAMA research group (Rennes, France) before moving to his current team MULTISPEECH (Nancy, France) in April 2018. His research lies at the interface between statistical machine learning, acoustics and audio signal processing with main applications to auditory scene analysis and robot audition. He received the engineering B.Sc. (2008) and M.Sc. (2010) degrees in computer science and mathematics from the school Ensimag (Grenoble, France), as well as the specialized M.Sc. research degree in computer graphics, vision and robotics from the Université Joseph Fourier (Grenoble, France). In November 2013, he received the Ph.D. degree in computer sciences and applied mathematics of the university of Grenoble (France). His thesis was awarded the GRETSI-EEA-ISIS French PhD prize in signal image and vision in 2014. He was employed as a postdoctoral fellow (2014-2015) at the chair of Multimedia Communications and Signal Processing of the Friedrich-Alexander-University (Erlangen, Germany). He co-chaired and co-organized numerous special sessions on various aspects of audio scene analysis and signal processing at the international conferences ICASSP (2016, 2018) and LVA/ICA (2017, 2018). He was the main organizer of the 2019 IEEE Signal Processing Cup on Search & Rescue with Drone-Embedded Sound Source Localization. He serves as an elected member of the IEEE technical committee on Audio Acoustics and Signal Processing, which he also represents as a member of the IEEE Automonomous System Initiative.
