SiMPE: Speech in mobile and pervasive environments

View publication


Traditionally, voice-based applications have been accessed using unintelligent telephone devices through Voice Browsers that reside on the server. The proliferation of pervasive devices and the increase in their processing capabilities, client-side speech processing is emerging as a viable alternative. This workshop will explore the various possibilities and issues that arise while enabling speech processing on resource-constrained, possibly mobile devices. The workshop will highlight the many open areas that require research attention, identify key problems that need to be addressed, and also discuss a few approaches for solving some of them - to build the next generation of conversational systems.
