The technology to allow humans to communicate by speech with machines or by which machines can understand when humans communicate with each other is rapidly maturing. While the 18-781 speech course focused on an introduction to the theoretical foundations, essential algorithms, major approaches, and strategies for current state-of-the-art systems, the 18-799L speech lab complements the education by concentrating on the experimental practice in developing speech recognition and understanding speech-based systems, and by getting hands-on experience on relevant research questions using state-of-the art tools. Possible problem sets include both core speech recognition technology, and the integration of speech-based components into multimodal, semantic, learning, or otherwise complex systems and interfaces.
This project/seminar course is not an approved ECE graduate course for the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. (Please see http://www.ece.cmu.edu/graduate/approved.html.)
18-799L is a cross listing of 11-753 offered by LTI.
Prerequisites: 18-781 or by consent by instructor
