This expert is a Professor Emeritus of Digital Signal Processing. This expert received S.B. (Bachelor's), S.M. (Master's), E.E. (Professional Engineer's), and Sc.D. (Doctorate) degrees, all in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. During graduate work, this expert was supported by a fellowship for research in hearing prostheses, and corporate sponsorship for the development of real- time automatic speech recognition systems. This expert is a member of the Acoustical Society of America, and is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). This expert has been a member of the IEEE Speech Technical Committee. This expert is also founder and director a speech technology company. This expert's current research interests involve digital processing of speech signals. This is concerned with such problems as the application of digital speech technology to sensory aids for the hearing impaired and automatic recognition of speech in adverse conditions. Some of the interesting problems arising from these applications include enhancement of speech in noise, formulation of robust perceptual distance measures, and real-time implementation. This expert also does work in efficient coding of speech signals, auditory modeling for improved speech analysis, speech production modeling, general digital signal processing, and pattern recognition.
This expert is a consultant and patent owner with many years of experience in developing and supporting the development and commercial exploitation of new technologies in the areas including audio and video encoding, decoding, recording, storage, transmission, and presentation, consumer electronics, digital television, broadcast, mobile, and fiber telecommunications, and computer and storage networks. This expert is specifically experienced in speech processing technologies and details of recognition and insertion of service signals in video programs.
This expert has supported numerous licensing negotiations and reexaminations/IPRs as well as over 50 patent-related District Court and ITC cases, in consultative preparation of cases, characterization of accused products (by testing, reverse engineering, source code review, etc.), preparation of declarations and reports, and, as needed, testifying.
