Applications are invited for a full-time interdisciplinary PhD scholarship in the LT3 Language and Translation Technology Team at the Ghent University Department of Translation, Interpreting and Communication. The successful applicant will participate in an interdisciplinary research project on the “Comprehensive Integration of Linguistic Features in a Human Inspired Speech Recognition Architecture” funded by the special research fund of Ghent University.
The envisaged starting date is April 1st 2017.
Despite that fact that speech recognition involves a fair amount of natural language processing, there has been little collaboration between computational linguists and speech recognition engineers. Given the progress in both research domains in the last decades, this collaborative research effort aims to co-develop a novel speech recognition framework and a set of contemporary linguistic models that plug into this framework. The incorporation of rich linguistic knowledge is expected to help in closing the gap in accuracy between automatic speech recognition (ASR) and human speech recognition (HSR).
