Remarkable progress is being made in spoken language processing, but many powerful techniques have remained hidden in conference proceedings and academic papers, inaccessible to most practitioners. In this book, the leaders of the Speech Technology Group at Microsoft Research share these advances -- presenting not just the latest theory, but practical techniques for building commercially viable products.KEY TOPICS: Spoken Language Processing draws upon the latest advances and techniques from multiple fields: acoustics, phonology, phonetics, linguistics, semantics, pragmatics, computer science, electrical engineering, mathematics, syntax, psychology, and beyond. The book begins by presenting essential background on speech production and perception, probability and information theory, and pattern recognition. The authors demonstrate how to extract useful information from the speech signal; then present a variety of contemporary speech recognition techniques, including hidden Markov models, acoustic and language modeling, and techniques for improving resistance to environmental noise. Coverage includes decoders, search algorithms, large vocabulary speech recognition techniques, text-to-speech, spoken language dialog management, user interfaces, and interaction with non-speech interface modalities. The authors also present detailed case studies based on Microsoft's advanced prototypes, including the Whisper speech recognizer, Whistler text-to-speech system, and MiPad handheld computer.MARKET: For anyone involved with planning, designing, building, or purchasing spoken language technology.

After decades of research activity, Chinese spoken language processing (CSLP) has advanced considerably both in practical technology and theoretical discovery. In this book, the editors provide both an introduction to the field as well as unique research problems with their solutions in various areas of CSLP. The contributions represent pioneering efforts ranging from CSLP principles to technologies and applications, with each chapter encapsulating a single problem and its solutions.A commemorative volume for the 10th anniversary of the international symposium on CSLP in Singapore, this is a valuable reference for established researchers and an excellent introduction for those interested in the area of CSLP.

Spoken language understanding (SLU) is an emerging field in between speech and language processing, investigating human/ machine and human/ human communication by leveraging technologies from signal processing, pattern recognition, machine learning and artificial intelligence. SLU systems are designed to extract the meaning from speech utterances and its applications are vast, from voice search in mobile devices to meeting summarization, attracting interest from both commercial and academic sectors. Both human/machine and human/human communications can benefit from the application of SLU, using differing tasks and approaches to better understand and utilize such communications. This book covers the state-of-the-art approaches for the most popular SLU tasks with chapters written by well-known researchers in the respective fields. Key features include: Presents a fully integrated view of the two distinct disciplines of speech processing and language processing for SLU tasks. Defines what is possible today for SLU as an enabling technology for enterprise (e.g., customer care centers or company meetings), and consumer (e.g., entertainment, mobile, car, robot, or smart environments) applications and outlines the key research areas. Provides a unique source of distilled information on methods for computer modeling of semantic information in human/machine and human/human conversations. This book can be successfully used for graduate courses in electronics engineering, computer science or computational linguistics. Moreover, technologists interested in processing spoken communications will find it a useful source of collated information of the topic drawn from the two distinct disciplines of speech processing and language processing under the new area of SLU.

Essay from the year 2007 in the subject Speech Science / Linguistics, grade: 1, University of Sheffield, language: English, abstract: In this essay, it is described what animal communication can tell us about spoken language processing by mind and machine. First, it is explained how animal behaviour influences the human side. Then it is shown what can be learnt on the machine side. In conclusion, it can be said that the study of animal communication provides scientists with clues for creating theories of human speech evolution. However, more research in the future is necessary to underpin these theories. A number of questions still remain unsolved. The same is true on the machine side for the development of applications that copy animal techniques.

Children S Information Seeking During Signed And Spoken Language Processing

How do children comprehend and learn language despite noisy input and limits on their information processing capabilities? Social learning theories argue for the importance of acquiring language from more knowledgeable adults who can constrain the learning task. Statistical learning accounts emphasize the role of children's pattern detection abilities that can take advantage of the structure available in the input. Finally, active learning explanations focus on children's capacity to gather useful information to support their learning. This thesis presents an integrative explanation that brings together ideas from these theoretical accounts to investigate how children's information seeking adapts to learning within social contexts. I use the formalization of Optimal Experiment Design (OED) as a conceptual tool to bring together ideas from social and active learning. Then, I present a series of empirical studies motivated by the integrative account that ask how children's information seeking adapts during language processing across a diverse set of contexts: signed vs. spoken language (Chapters 2 and 3), (2) speech in clear vs. noisy environments (Chapter 3), and (3) novel words with or without an accompanied social cue to reference (Chapters 4 and 5). The upshot of the empirical work is that children are quite capable of flexibly seeking information from their communicative partners to support language processing.
