Rob A. Rutenbar, Jatras Professor of ECE, Professor of CS, was interviewed for World Talk Radio's "BioTech Today" show for his speech recognition in silicon project with the National Science Foundation. His group of researchers from Carnegie Mellon University and the University of California at Berkeley are designing a radically new silicon chip architecture targeted at speech recognition that performs 100 to 1000 times more efficiently than a conventional computer. Rutenbar directs a consortium of U.S. universities called the Center for Circuit and System Solutions (C2S2), which is a national MARCO Focus Center funded by the U.S. semiconductor community and the Department of Defense.
