Core technologies and applications
SRI’s Speech Technology and Research (STAR) Laboratory brings together a multidisciplinary mix of engineers, computer scientists and linguists. Together our experts build systems for a wide range of applications including signal processing; data indexing and mining; and computer-aided learning.
Speech production and perception-based features
Prosodic modeling and disfluencies
Speech & audio analytics
Speaker and speaker-state characterization
Audio event detection
Cross-lingual information retrieval
Machine-mediated cross-lingual communication
Natural language understanding
Dialog systems and virtual personal assistants (VPAs)
Error detection and recovery
Semantic and syntactic parsing
Multi-lingual information extraction
Topic and event identification
Novel speech processing technology leverages AI algorithms to enable speech activity detection in high levels of noise and distortion.
“I love to work here because SRI International is a place where you find people smarter and nicer than you. They keep me pushing in the right direction and challenging me every day, but with respect and kindness. What else can you ask for?”
