Seminars organised by the Speech Recognition by Synthesis (SRbS) project in the school of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering (EESE).

Seminars will cover a variety of speech-related topics including automatic speech recognition, synthesis, and all aspects of speech science. We aim to have talks from three or four speakers from outside of the University of Birmingham, per semester, alternating with talks from project members and students.

The SRbS project is developing new parsimonious models for robust speech recognition, inspired by linguistically and physically plausible models of speech production.
