"Looking Beyond Words in Spoken Document Processing"

Professor Mari Ostendorf
Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies, College of Engineering
University of Washington

Abstract:
As storage costs drop and bandwidth increases, there has been a rapid growth of spoken information available via the web or in online archives -- including radio and TV broadcasts, oral histories, legislative proceedings, call center recordings, etc. -- raising problems of document retrieval, information extraction, summarization and translation for spoken language. While there is a long tradition of research in these technologies for text, new challenges arise when moving from written to spoken language.
