6-47 (2015-06-16) Postdoc / Spontaneous speech recognition and understanding at IMAG (Grenoble-F)

Postdoc / Spontaneous speech recognition and understanding


You will work on a research and development project (CASSIE) involving academic and industrial stakeholders of spoken dialog and assistive technologies. The postdoc objective is to advance the state-of-the-art in spontaneous speech recognition and understanding. More precisely, one application of the project is a chatterbot which assists users to interact with a smart home environment. The heart of the research will be twofold:

-improve/adapt the LIG ASR system to spontaneous speech 

-build probabilistic and/or deep-learning based models for spoken language understanding in the context of assistive technologies.

 For the experimental development and validation, the research will benefit from the fully-equipped LIG smart home (DOMUS).

Start : Fall 2015 (flexible start from Sept to Dec 2015)

Duration : 18 months (postdoc)
