NyathomThaboOdhong_TraditionOfWomen

Otto Gwado Ayoker
The sound recording at the center of this item is narrative, explaining an aspect of Shilluk culture. Shilluk traditions govern everyday life. There are norms that must be observed by everybody. Purity is the most feared tradition because it involves fines and punishments. In this narrative, the performer elaborates on the norms that should be observed by women, beginning from the time the girl becomes a woman. And that every woman must teach these norms...

JuliaJamesOdhok_songTheDaughterOfAwin

Otto Gwado Ayoker
The recording at the center of this item is a song. Women songs are usually songs of praise mostly boasting about their beauty and the make-up. But there are many women who are composers of social and political songs. The women and also girls sing when they walk together or sit in one place doing a collective work. Two people sing the same song in turn while the rest are listening, or the group divide...

AnguyAdyengLwal_songPadhyangCultivated

Otto Gwado Ayoker
The recording at the center of this item is a song. There was famine in some areas in the northern Shilluk “Gär” in the year 1985. And many people left their villages and went to the north looking for food. Some villages were deserted. Padhyang Village was not affected much by the famine, because it has big farms in the forest. Moreover, Padhyang had a farm for King Ayang Anay. In this song, the composer...

The Voice Conversion Challenge 2018: database and results

Jaime Lorenzo-Trueba, Junichi Yamagishi, Tomoki Toda, Daisuke Saito, Fernando Villavicencio, Tomi Kinnunen & Zhenhua Ling
Voice conversion (VC) is a technique to transform a speaker identity included in a source speech waveform into a different one while preserving linguistic information of the source speech waveform. In 2016, we have launched the Voice Conversion Challenge (VCC) 2016 at Interspeech 2016. The objective of the 2016 challenge was to better understand different VC techniques built on a freely-available common dataset to look at a common goal, and to share views about unsolved...

Manual

Alistair McCormick, Andrei Dobrescu & Livia CT Scorza
Improvements in high-throughput phenotyping technologies are rapidly expanding the scope and capacity of plant biology studies to measure growth traits. Nevertheless, the costs of commercial phenotyping equipment and infrastructure remain prohibitively expensive for wide-scale uptake, while academic solutions can require significant local expertise. Here a low-cost methodology for plant biologists to build their own phenotyping system for quantifying growth rates and phenotypic characteristics of Arabidopsis thaliana rosettes throughout the diel cycle is presented. The group...

Noisy speech database for training speech enhancement algorithms and TTS models

Cassia Valentini-Botinhao
Clean and noisy parallel speech database. The database was designed to train and test speech enhancement methods that operate at 48kHz. A more detailed description can be found in the papers associated with the database. For the 28 speaker dataset, details can be found in: C. Valentini-Botinhao, X. Wang, S. Takaki & J. Yamagishi, "Speech Enhancement for a Noise-Robust Text-to-Speech Synthesis System using Deep Recurrent Neural Networks", In Proc. Interspeech 2016. For the 56 speaker...

Lid-driven cavity flow of viscoelastic liquids

RJ Poole, RG Sousa, A Afonso, FT Pinho, PJ Oliveira, Alexander N Morozov & MA Alves
The lid-driven cavity flow is a well-known benchmark problem for the validation of new numerical methods and techniques. In experimental and numerical studies with viscoelastic fluids in such lid-driven flows, purely-elastic instabilities have been shown to appear even at very low Reynolds numbers. In this work, a finite-volume viscoelastic code, using the log-conformation formulation, is used to probe the effect of viscoelasticity on the appearance of such instabilities in lid-driven cavities for a wide range...

INSITE Oil and Gas ROV video survey questionnaire

Fiona Murray, Kate Gormley, Lea-Anne Henry & J Murray Roberts
The INSITE Data Initiative aimed to identify data that has been collected by energy companies which could be valuable to research into the influence of man-made structures on the North Sea ecosystem. We developed a questionnaire to gather data from major oil and gas companies in the UK to establish what video archives they have of their subsea infrastructure with a focus on offshore platforms (jackets) and pipelines. The operators were asked to assess whether...

INSITE Data Roadmap and documentation

Fiona Murray, Kate Gormley & J Murray Roberts
The INSITE Data Roadmap is a database of data sources likely to be useful to those interested in the influence of manmade structures on North Sea ecosystems. To date it consists of 74 datasets collated from governments, NGOs and research institutions. This product has been produced as part of the INSITE Data Initiative, funded by the INSITE research programme. INSITE – INfluence of man-made Structures In the Ecosystem is a major industry-sponsored project with the...

SUPERSEDED - Epidemiological characteristics of human-infective RNA viruses

Mark Woolhouse & Liam Brierley
## This data item has been replaced by the one which can be found at https://doi.org/10.7488/ds/2265 . ## RNA viruses are a major threat to human health. Here, based on extensive literature searches carried out over a period of 18 years, we provide a catalogue of all 214 known human-infective RNA virus species. We link these viruses to metadata for a number of traits that influence their epidemiology, including the date of the first report...
