Abstract

This paper addresses the issues of detecting and localizing objects in a scene that are both seen and heard. We explain the benefits of a human-like configuration of sensors (binaural and binocular) for gathering auditory and visual observations. It is shown that the detection and localization problem can be recast as the task of clustering the audio-visual observations into coherent groups. We propose a probabilistic generative model that captures the relations between audio and visual observations. This model maps the data into a common audio-visual 3D representation via a pair of mixture models. Inference is performed by a version of the expectationmaximization algorithm, which is formally derived, and which provides cooperative estimates of both the auditory activity and the 3D position of each object. We describe several experiments with single- and multiple-speaker detection and localization, in the presence of other audio sources.
