languages (information about the research group and ongoing activities
can be  found at, the aim  of the project  will be
advancing  beyond  the  state-of-the-art  the existing  FBK  automatic
transcription  technology.  Possible research  topics include  but are
not limited  to: improving acoustic modeling for  large vocabulary ASR
(e.g.  discriminative  training algorithms, speaker  adaptive acoustic
modeling,  methods  for  fast  and efficient  adaptation  to  changing
domains, data selection methods for AM training, bootstrap methods for
under resourced  languages) and improving language  modeling for large
vocabulary ASR  (data selection  for LM training,  domain adaptation).
