Skyppy: Speech is overrated – skyp it!

A web application built upon INA Speech Segmenter facilitating the skipping of certain types of audio in a video.


Skyppy builds upon the open source work of Institut National de l'Audiovisuel who have produced a CNN-based audio segmentation toolkit to detect speech, music and speaker. It's been designed for large scale gender equality studies based on speech time per gender.

We provide an interface so that people can use this technology on any YouTube video and produce an edited version where certain segments are skipped. So far we've used this mostly for comic effect, although we're sure that it will come in handy for a host of other use cases.
