In this thesis, we introduced the problem of privacy-preserving speech processing through a few applications: speaker verification, speaker identification, and speech recognition. There are, however, many problems in speech processing where the similar techniques can be adapted to. Additionally, there are other algorithmic improvements that will allow us to create more accurate or more efficient privacy-preserving solutions for these problems. We discuss a few directions for future research below.
