Expert Witness #259569

This expert is a Research Professor in a Computer Science Department. This expert also has an appointment in a Language Technologies Institute and is Director of a Speech Consortium. This expert received a PhD in Cognitive Psychology (speech perception) and has since worked in the areas of automatic speech recognition, spoken language interaction and machine learning. This expert's research has spanned many aspects of spoken language, including knowledge-based recognition systems, language modeling, spoken language system architectures, multimodal interaction, the analysis of conversational structure, and design principles for speech interfaces. This expert's interests center on language-based communication between humans and robots and on aspects of core speech recognition, such as out-of-vocabulary (OOV) word processing. This expert has investigated the rapid prototyping of systems for speech-to-speech translation, spoken dialog, and has made contributions to dialog management, language generation and the computation of confidence metrics for recognition and understanding. This expert is interested in spoken language interaction in groups that include humans and robots. Making this a reality requires developing dialog strategies that can handle multi-participant conversations; it also requires understanding the process of dialog-mediated grounding as well as developing techniques that allow robots understand and clarify human directions. This expert is interested in several aspects of learning, including the induction of concepts and structure from speech and the design of intelligent systems that proactively seek to acquire knowledge from people.

This expert's work includes:

-  A project that produced an early mobile speech system
-  spoken dialog system architectures
-  A dialog manager that incorporates dialog management ideas that were first introduced in the Office Manager (OM) system and further developed in successor systems.
-  web-based tools that are used to generate a knowledge base for the open source Sphinx recognition system, including a language model and a pronouncing dictionary

This expert has had one expert witness experience where this expert wrote an expert report and was deposed.
