This talk presents evidence of new scaling laws found in the human voice, originating at temporal scales below the phoneme, where the underlying mechanisms are not cognitive but only rely on the physiology of voice production.

A Glass Half Full: Using Programmable Hardware Accelerators in Analytical Databases

Event in progress
