ScoutWav: Two-Step Fine-Tuning on Self-Supervised Automatic Speech Recognition for Low-Resource Environments (2022)
Conference Proceeding
Fatehi, K., Torres, M. T., & Kucukyilmaz, A. (2022). ScoutWav: Two-Step Fine-Tuning on Self-Supervised Automatic Speech Recognition for Low-Resource Environments. In Proceedings of Interspeech 2022 (3523-3527). https://doi.org/10.21437/Interspeech.2022-10270

Recent improvements in Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) systems obtain extraordinary results. However, there are specific domains where training data can be either limited or not representative enough, which are known as Low-Resource Environments (...

The Multi-Stage Experience: the Simulated Work Task Approach to Studying Information Seeking Stages (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Huurdeman, H., Kamps, J., & Wilson, M. L. (2019). The Multi-Stage Experience: the Simulated Work Task Approach to Studying Information Seeking Stages

This experience paper shines more light on a simulated work task approach to studying information seeking stages. This explicit multistage approach was first utilized in Huurdeman, Wilson, and Kamps [14] to investigate the utility of search user inte...

A visual approach to query formulation for systematic search (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Russell-Rose, T., Chamberlain, J., & Shokraneh, F. (2019). A visual approach to query formulation for systematic search. https://doi.org/10.1145/3295750.3298919

Knowledge workers (such as healthcare information professionals, patent agents and legal researchers) need to create and execute search strategies that are accurate, repeatable and transparent. The traditional solution offered by most database vendor... Read More about A visual approach to query formulation for systematic search.

A sociotechnical system approach to virtual citizen science: an application of BS ISO 27500:2016 (2019)
Journal Article
Houghton, R., Sprinks, J., Wardlaw, J., Bamford, S., & Marsh, S. (2019). A sociotechnical system approach to virtual citizen science: an application of BS ISO 27500:2016. JCOM: Journal of Science Communication, 18(01), https://doi.org/10.22323/2.18010201

We discuss the potential application to virtual citizen science of a recent standard (BS ISO 27500:2016 “The human-centred organisation”) which encourages the adoption of a sociotechnical systems perspective across a wide range of businesses, organiz...
