We give a hands-on demonstration of the Alveo Virtual Laboratory, a new platform for collaborative research in human communication science (HCS). Funded by the Australian Government National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources (NeCTAR) program, Alveo involves partners from a range of disciplines: linguistics, natural language processing, speech science, psychology, as well as music and acoustic processing. The goal of the platform is to provide easy access to a variety of databases and a range of analysis tools, in order to foster inter-disciplinary research and facilitate the discovery of new methods for solving old problems or the application of known methods to new datasets. Alveo integrates a number of tools and enables non-technical users to process communication resources (including not only text and speech corpora but also music recordings and videos) using these tools in a straightforward manner.
