Adobe co-authored 21 papers at top audio conferences in 2021 – twelve papers at ICASSP, six at WASPAA and three at ISMIR – with topics ranging from high quality speech synthesis to cross-modal music retrieval, automatic optimization of DSP algorithms, few-shot audio recognition, HRTF modelling, and many more.
Three Adobe Research co-authored papers received awards at WASPAA 2021 and ISMIR 2021. Adobe researchers also served as chairs or committee members for all three conferences.
Nearly all of Adobe co-authored papers are the result of student internships or other collaborations with university students and faculty. Check out the Adobe Research Careers website to learn more about internships and full-time career opportunities.
