“No Longer Lost in Recognition: Development of Novel LargeVocabulary Continuous Speech Recognition Techniques”


Speech Processing and Maori Speech Recognition

Speech recognition is one of the main areas in speech processing and signal processing. Large-vocabulary continuous speech recognition (LVCSR), especially spontaneous speech recognition, remains a grand scientific challenge in the signal processing and artificial intelligence communities. This research aims to develop several novel LVCSR techniques. We will then apply our newly developed techniques and other state-of-the-art speech recognition technologies to develop a Maori speech recognition system that can convert Maori speech (such as continuous news broadcast speech and spontaneous speech) to Maori text. This research will for the first time develop a large-vocabulary continuous Maori speech recognition system.
