For this project, SRI’s Speech Technology and Research (STAR) Laboratory will develop speech processing algorithms and software to detect speech activity, identify the speaker and the language being spoken (from a predefined set of speakers and languages), and search for key words. The goal of the program is to extract information from highly distorted audio signals, in a variety of languages. These types of audio signals may be found in many military and civilian contexts, such as air traffic control, emergency and ship radio communications, and call-in segments of talk shows.
