Well I’ve been working on speech technology since 1980, and if you want to see what I’ve been up to all this time, take a look at my publications.
While at Aculab, I’ve been responsible for the development of four distinct telephone speech recognition systems:
Of course there’s still more to be done, but I keep getting distracted with forays into alternative methodologies for speech synthesis (a.k.a. text-to-speech conversion, or TTS), electrical (“hybrid”) echo cancellation in telephone systems, voice morphing, codec development, and things like that.
For some years, I took a break from writing academic publications, which is a shame because some of my original work on voice activity detection, extremely fast and accurate adaptive filtering, and short-time spectral analysis on arbitrary frequency scales, remains unpublished and was mathematically interesting.
To see what’s been happening in the World at large, follow some of the links on this page. It includes sources of all sorts of speech-related goodies (software, data, and the like).
