Speech Recognition at KAIST

A group of researchers at the Brain Science Research Center of KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) in Taejon, Korea has been working on modeling of human auditory central nerve systems for noise-robust speech recognition. This research has been funded as a part of the Brain Neuroinformatics Research Program, one of three major national brain research programs started in November 1998 for 10 years by the Korean Ministry of Science and Technology.

Language Models: Making Sense of Speech

The general public knows it will take a few days to get to know a new car.

It is an atmosphere where the bulls are stampeding, or the bears are growling, and there never seems to be a calm middle ground.

Speech Joins Computer Telephony Boom

Computer telephony has become one of the hottest applications for speech recognition, with many companies producing products specifically for the CT market and one major speech recognition company even changing its entire company focus to pursue the CT market.
