39th International AES Conference
Audio Forensics: Practices and Challenges
The AES 39th International Conference is dedicated to the field of audio forensics, exploring its history, current practices, and future challenges. Digital technology has revolutionized audio forensics, providing significant advances in audio recording, speech/signal processing, and analysis. However, the ever-expanding prevalence of multimedia devices in today’s society has resulted in a vast increase in types of recording formats, along with the availability of inexpensive, easy-to-use editing and manipulation software. These factors, together with the use of perceptual encoding techniques, pose significant challenges for the forensic processing and analysis of recordings, detection of forgeries and alterations, speech enhancement, and voice identification.
