  • Language Modeling
  • Topic Detection
  • Information Extraction

Additional Topics

  - Dialog systems and spoken language understanding (NLP and Speech).
  - Speech synthesis and natural language generation (NLP and Speech).
  - Speech-to-speech translation                     (NLP and Speech).
  - Spoken document retrieval                        (IR and Speech)
  - Prosody and parsing                              (NLP and Speech)
