Gender Sub-Challenge Prize - The INESC-ID gender detection system won the international evaluation that was promoted in the scope of InterSpeech 2010.

Open Research Position in project Aria

Research Opportunities - The Spoken Language Systems Lab is looking for students interested in pursuing a PhD in Language Technologies. Post-Doc positions are also open. The typical PhD program in our lab is held in cooperation with international Universities (currently with Univ. Rochester, New York University, University of Pennsylvania). Cooperations are being established with École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and CMU.

Ph.D. Program CMU-PORTUGAL in the area of Language and Information Technologies - Deadline: December 15th, 2010

New Patent - The patent by João Neto and João Miranda on a new method for lexical model / language model composition for automatic speech recognition was recently approved.

Voice Interaction

VoiceInteraction S.A. is a technology based company born in April 2008 as a spin-off from INESC-ID Lisboa. Its primary goal is to develop speech processing technologies. VoiceInteraction team is composed by researchers coming from INESC-ID Lisboa Spoken Language Systems Lab (L2F/INESC-ID) that have worked in the TECNOVOZ project (ADI/PRIME/03/165 - 2006/2008).
