Meeting Recorder: Portable Speech Recognition
Meeting Recorder is a project to design, implement, and test a portable
digital speech recorder that incorporates robust speech recognition
algorithms to provide a searchable transcript of speech in real time.
To effectively use this system as an on-line meeting recorder will
require new user interface paradigms, which we will develop in
this project. The resulting prototype will then be used to support
research into robust speech recognition and vector
processing. Additionally, this project will be used to initiate
new research into user interfaces for target applications incorporating
this technology, and in the tradeoffs between energy usage,
performance, and accuracy.
The multidisciplinary team of researchers includes experts in speech
recognition, user interface design for mobile devices, and low-power
hardware design. This team is closely affiliated with the Intelligent
RAM (IRAM) project, which is building a powerful processor ideally
suited for the goals of this partnership. This processor, the VIRAM-1,
combines a vector processing unit with a large DRAM array and fast I/O
on a single chip to efficiently execute the computationally intensive
speech algorithms required for robust speech recognition.
