‘Voice expert’ Seong Won-yong “MBC, malicious data manipulation…尹, I didn’t do ‘Biden’”

On the 22nd (local time), as President Yoon Seok-yeol left a conference hall in New York, USA, he seemed to be saying to his staff, “If the National Assembly does not approve these XXs, what should I do? After a controversy arose over the claim that ‘○○○’ was referring to US President Joe Biden, the president’s office countered that it was ‘flying’. MBC Capture

Regarding the controversy over profanity that arose during President Yoon Seok-yeol’s visit to New York, Seong Won-yong, an emeritus professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Seoul National University, analyzed that “the core of the problem is data falsification.”

According to Professor Sung’s Facebook on the 30th, he recently wrote, “False subtitles play a similar role to voice editing and tampering.”

Professor Sung said, “Why does it sound like ‘Biden’ to some, but not to others?” He said.

He continued, “Of course, there is no reason to believe that people who hear ‘Biden’ have more sensitive ears. Because people’s pronunciation is so stupid.”

“President Yoon’s remarks in New York are very noisy and unclear, but MBC arbitrarily subtitled them.” “Most people listen to these subtitles. Don’t listen to the ‘sound’, but listen to the ‘subtitles’. This is because subtitles serve as very clear dictionary information.”

“A lot of people say it sounds like ‘Biden’, but it’s because they’ve already seen the subtitles. said It is said that the most accurate answer from Naver Clover’s voice recognizer was ‘I would be embarrassed if I made it without a rookie’.

“Even in the research ethics, data tampering is considered the worst violation,” he said.

He continued, “Above all, it is not for the opposition party or some media to defend MBC with this matter. It will be the world.”

In another article, Professor Sung reiterated, “The use of the subtitles incorrectly is intentional and malicious data manipulation.” He added that this was “data showing the dangers of caption manipulation.”

Meanwhile, Professor Sung has been researching the field of speech recognition for a long time and won the 2018 Google AI Intensive Research Awards for his research on ‘speech recognition in low-power devices using multi-time step parallelization’.
