Incorporating Linguistic Knowledge Sources Through a Modular Recogniser Architecture
Project information
Abstract: 

In this project we investigate whether the "all-in-one" strategy currently used in speech recognizers, in which task-specific, syntactic, and lexical knowledge are fused into a single model based on simple formalisms, can be replaced by a modular architecture in which apart from acoustic-phonetic and intonational features, also generic and domain-specific linguistic information sources can be used.

Abstract Dutch: 

In dit project wordt onderzocht of de "alles-in-een" strategie die in de huidige spraakherkenners gevolgd wordt, waarbij taak-specifieke, syntactische, en lexicale kennis verweven is in een enkel op eenvoudige formalismen gebaseerd taalmodel, vervangen kan worden door een modulaire architectuur waarbij naast akoestisch-fonetisch en intonatie-gerelateerde parameters ook generische en domeinspecifieke taalkundige informatiebronnen worden gebruikt.
