Thinking about Joining Us?

INESC-ID is one of the largest and most dynamic research institutes in Portugal in the areas of telecommunications, information systems and electronics with the status of associated laboratory given by the Portuguese government. The HLT lab provides an interdisciplinary and creative work environment active in multiple areas of speech and language research. These include (without limitation):

  • speech recognition, synthesis, enhancement and understanding, speech to speech translation
  • speaker, language and accent identification, computational paralinguistics
  • music genre classification, audio finger-printing and retrieval, multi-document summarization of multimedia (audio + video + text)
  • machine translation, summarization, sentiment analysis
  • natural language generation, syntactic and semantic processing, named entity retrieval
  • multimodal dialogue systems, question answering, etc.

Have a look at our projects and demos.

We have our own powerful IT infrastructure, allowing state-of-the-art research:

  • Robust and fast shared filesystems for storage and processing of very large data-sets
