Who is Looking at Speech?

In their early stages, Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) technologies were approached by firms through extensive exploration and experimentation rather than through targeted development. This fast growing industry so far has been analyzed by several vendors and consultants using mainly qualitative data. In this article we present a different approach [1] exploiting quantitative data. Corporate goals and changes in the technological environment are better figured by patenting and publishing performances which are reported here, along with the results of an Internet based survey designed for executives and researchers.
