Stanford Research Institute (SRI) is participating in a major program of research on the analysis of continuous speech by computer. The goal is the development of a speech understanding system capable of engaging a human operator in a natural conversation about a specific problem domain. The approach being taken is distinctive in the extent to which it depends on syntactic and semantic processing to guide the acoustic analysis. This correspondence provides a description of the first version of the system, emphasizing the kinds of information that need to be added for effective results.
Acoustics, artificial intelligence, language processing, semantics, speech recognition, speech understanding, syntax, word function, word verification.
