IDIAP Research Institute
The IDIAP Research Institute is an independent, nonprofit
research foundation located in Martigny (Valais, Switzerland).
Inaugurated in 1991, and accredited by the State and Federal
Governments, IDIAP is affiliated with the "Ecole Polytechnique
F└d└rale de Lausanne" EPFL and the University of Geneva. IDIAP
is committed to leading-edge research and developments in the
areas of Speech Processing, Computer Vision, Information Retrieval,
Biometric Authentication, Multimodal Interaction and Machine
UCL DEPT OF PHONETICS & LINGUISTICS
Today the Department of Phonetics and Linguistics at University
College London is pre-eminent in the United Kingdom and the
world, offering undergraduate and postgraduate courses across
the full range of the language sciences.Apart from our breadth
of coverage we are particularly distinguished in at least three
areas: articulatory phonetics, especially the study and description
of English pronunciation; theoretical linguistics, especially
the study of syntax, pragmatics and phonology; and experimental
phonetics, particularly speech perception, speech technology,
speech and language pathology, and speech and hearing science.
Speech at CMU
Carnegie Mellon University is dedicated to speech technology
research, development, and deployment, and we hope this page
will be a vehicle to make our work available online. CMU has
a historic position in computational speech research, and continues
to test the limits of the art.
HTK of CAM
The Hidden Markov Model Toolkit (HTK) is a portable toolkit
for building and manipulating hidden Markov models. HTK is primarily
used for speech recognition research although it has been used
for numerous other applications including research into speech
synthesis, character recognition and DNA sequencing. HTK is
in use at hundreds of sites worldwide.
Computational Language and EducAtion Research
The Center for Computational Language and Education Research
(CLEAR) is internationally recognized for its groundbreaking
research on Human Language Technologies (HLT) as well as their
application to fundamental problems in Education. The Center's
HLT research includes information extraction, natural language
understanding, and spoken language processing systems. These
technologies have been integrated into a wide variety of animated
conversational systems to aid in language and science instruction.
CLEAR is located at the University of Colorado and is organized
as a unit of the Institute of Cognitive Science.
The MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory,
or CSAIL, was formed on July 1st, 2003 by the merger of the
Artificial Intelligence Lab and the Laboratory for Computer
Science, each with four decades of rich history. In so doing,
the merger created the largest interdepartmental laboratory
on campus, with nearly eight hundred members and ninety-plus

MIT Spoken Language Systems Group
Since its formation in 1989, the Spoken Language Systems
(SLS) group has focused its research on the creation of technology
that enables humans to interact with computers using natural
spoken language. In pursuit of this goal the SLS group is actively
engaged in a number of research projects.
Cambridge Machine Intelligence Laboratory
The Machine Intelligence Laboratory comprises three research
groups: Computer Vision & Robotics Group,Medical Imaging Group,
Microsoft Research - Speech Technology
Microsoft Research has a group in Redmond and another in
Beijing working together to improve spoken language technologies.
Our main goal is to build applications that make computers available
everywhere, and work with Speech Platforms Group product group
to make this vision a reality.
CSLU, OGI (Hynek Hermansky)
CSLU is an Oregon Graduate Institute of Science and Technology
Research Center that focuses on Spoken Language Technologies.
CSLP, Johns Hopkins University
The Johns Hopkins Center for Language and Speech Processing
(CLSP) was established in 1992 with support from the US Government
(NSF, DARPA, DoD). Its aim is to promote research and education
in the science and technology of language and speech.

USA DARPA -Speech Group Publications
The Speech Group contributes to the advancement of the state-of-the
art of spoken language processing (speech recognition and understanding)
so that spoken language can reliably serve as an alternative
modality for the human-computer interface.
