e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

Acoustic modelling for speech recognition in Indian languages in an agricultural commodities task domain


In developing speech recognition based services for any task domain, it is necessary to account for the support of an increasing number of languages over the life of the service. This paper considers a small vocabulary speech recognition task in multiple Indian languages. To configure a multi-lingual system in this task domain, an experimental study is presented using data from two linguistically similar languages Hindi and Marathi. We do so by training a subspace Gaussian mixture model (SGMM) (Povey et al., 2011; Rose et al., 2011) under a multi-lingual scenario (Burget et al., 2010; Mohan et al., 2012a). Speech data was collected from the targeted user population to develop spoken dialogue systems in an agricultural commodities task domain for this experimental study. It is well known that acoustic, channel and environmental mismatch between data sets from multiple languages is an issue while building multi-lingual systems of this nature. As a result, we use a cross-corpus acoustic normalization procedure which is a variant of speaker adaptive training (SAT) (Mohan et al., 2012a). The resulting multi-lingual system provides the best speech recognition performance for both languages. Further, the effect of sharing "similar" context-dependent states from the Marathi language on the Hindi speech recognition performance is presented. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
