  • Investigate saliency and activation mapping techniques on different forms of audio representations, e.g, spectrograms and acoustic features (e.g. pitch, formants)

  • Build insights for decision attribution on audio inputs, e.g., most impactful segments within an audio sample towards a classification outcome

  • Prepare an explainable-AI library for generative audio detection models

  • Propose novel end-to-end solutions for attribution/explainability and use them to improve detection models

  • Collaborate with scientists and engineers across the organization
