>On July 21-23, 1997, UCLA Extension will present the short course,
>"Automatic Speech Recognition: Fundamentals and Applications", on the
>UCLA campus in Los Angeles.

>The instructors are Abeer Alwan, PhD, Assistant Professor, Electrical
>Engineering Department, UCLA, and Ananth Sankar, PhD, Senior Research
>Engineer, SRI International.

>Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) has emerged as a promising area
>for applications such as telephone voice dialing, database access,
>human-computer interactions and hands-free applications such as car
>phones.  Since speech is the most direct form of human communication,
>ASR can enhance the ease, speed, and effectiveness with which humans
>can direct machines to accomplish desired tasks.  Speech recognition has
>become an established research area and current understanding has
>already produced several fielded applications.
>
>This course is intended to provide an understanding of the basic
>concepts
>of speech recognition including speech signal processing and feature
>extraction, and statistical pattern recognition and its applications in
>speech recognition.  The course also covers recent developments in
>special
>problem areas such as the recognition of noisy speech or accented
>speech.  The instructors assume basic knowledge of signal processing
>and statistical analysis, and the lectures are designed to prepare
>participants for development work in speech recognition.  The course
>should also offer enough background in speech recognition theory to
>foster the successful development of applications, and to expose new
>solutions to specific problems in speech recognition.
>
>The course fee is $1195, which includes extensive course materials.
>These materials are for participants only, and are not for sale.
