About the Authors
Li Deng received the PhD degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in electrical engineering. In 1989, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, as an assistant professor and became a full professor in 1996. From 1992 to 1993, he conducted sabbatical research at the Laboratory for Computer Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, and, from 1997-1998, at ATR Interpreting Telecommunications Research Laboratories, Kyoto, Japan. In 1999, he joined Microsoft Research, Redmond, Washington, as a senior researcher, where he is currently a principal researcher. He is also an affiliate professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington, Seattle. His research areas include automatic speech and speaker recognition, statistical methods and machine learning, neural information processing, machine intelligence, statistical signal processing, digital communication, human speech production and perception, acoustic phonetics, auditory speech processing, noise robust speech processing, speech synthesis and enhancement, spoken language understanding and systems, multimedia signal processing, and multimodal human-computer interaction. In these areas, he has published more than 250 refereed papers in leading international conferences and journals, 12 book chapters, and has given keynotes, tutorials, and lectures worldwide. He has been granted more than 20 US or international patents in acoustics, speech and language technology, and signal processing. He has authored two books: Speech Processing—A Dynamic and Optimization-Oriented Approach (Marcel Dekker Publishers, 2003) and Dynamic Speech Models—Theory, Algorithms, and Applications (Morgan & Claypool Publishers, 2006). He served on the Education Committee and the Speech Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (1996-2000, and was associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Speech and Audio Processing (2002-2005). He currently serves on the Society's Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee and is an area editor of IEEE Signal Processing Magazine. He was a technical chair of the IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP '04) and is the general chair of the IEEE Workshop on Multimedia Signal Processing, 2006. He is a fellow of the Acoustical Society of America and a fellow of the IEEE.
