Next Friday, December 3rd, Dr. Judith Markowitz will be presenting a talk entitled, “Commercial Speech Processing.” It will be a great opportunity to see the application of of the work of a linguist outside of academia.
Join us at 3 PM in 1750 University Hall (601 S. Morgan St. Chicago, IL 60607) for the talk and as usual light refreshments will be provided.
This talk will provide information about and demonstrations of the state-of-the-art of commercial text-to-speech synthesis, speech recognition, and speaker recognition.
The ability to incorporate faster, more powerful solutions on smaller platforms; the growth of cloud computing; and the explosion of smart devices have led to increased interest in linguistic approaches. This talk will, therefore, introduce some areas of opportunity for linguists.
