SYSTEM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: William s meisel
Award Amount: $49,140.00
Abstract:
To the extent that future weapon systems rely on natural-language interfaces, they must overcome the barrier of keyboard entry. since a natural-language or artifical-intelligence interface involves ambiquity and imprecision, the man-machine dialogue to resolve questions will become excessively… More

USE OF LARGE VOCABULARY, NATURAL SPEECH RECOGNITION TO ASSIST THE DEAF IN DEVELOPING COMPREHENSIBLE LANGUAGE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: ED
Principal Investigator: Paul a mangione
Award Amount: $30,000.00
Abstract:
One of the most difficult areas in assisting the deaf to develop a comprehensible language is in teaching proper pronunciation of spoken words. in this area, the deaf student requires considerable practice and feedback as he/she attempts to learn to speak the language properly. some areas of… More

Agency: DOT
Principal Investigator: Peter Robinson , Manager Appl Devel Dept
Award Amount: $49,000.00

PHONEME BASED SPEECH RECOGNITION SYSTEM FOR MISSION PLANNING AND CONTROL.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $475,000.00
Abstract:
To the extent that mission planning and control needs an effective man-machine dialogue which is not encumbered by excessive keyboard interaction, then a real-time continuous speech recognition interface can solve this problem. current speech-recognition technologies are characterized bylimited… More

A SPEAKER-INDEPENDENT CONTINUOUS SPEECH RECOGNITION SYSTEM USED AS INPUT DEVICE FOR AN ENGLISH LANGUAGE COMPETENCY ASSESSMENT PROGRAM USING TEST ITEM RESPONSE THEORY

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: ED
Principal Investigator: Phil shinn, ph.d , DIR OF GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS
Award Amount: $30,000.00
Abstract:
Automation of test methods has resulted in tremendous increases in efficiency and reliability, and has been driven by the increasing demand for large-scale testing. up to new, this testing modality has been limited to standardized tests which for the most part use multiple choice, paper and pencil… More

SPEECH REPRESENTATION AND SPEECH UNDERSTANDING

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Dr Benji Wald
Award Amount: $499,000.00
Abstract:
Speech understanding utilizes sources of knowledge outside of the speech signal to resolve the ambiguity inherent in speech. the efficiency and accuracy of this process is closely related to the representation of the information in the speech signal. if the speech representation condenses the… More

COMPUTER VOICE AND SPEECH DATA ENTRY AND RECOGNITION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOT
Principal Investigator: Peter Robinson , Manager Appl Devel Dept
Award Amount: $299,000.00
Abstract:
To the extent that the advent of computerized air traffic control systems needs an effective man-machine dialogue which is not encumbered by excessive keyboard interaction, a real-time continuous speech interface can solve this problem. until now, speech-recognition technologies have been… More

APPLICATION OF NEURAL NETS TO STAGED SPEECH RECOGNITION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Dr phil shinn
Award Amount: $49,241.00
Abstract:
Neural network computation is particularly suited to finding optimal solutions to problems that have a large number of possible solutions. the task of speech recognition is to transform one of an infinitely varying set of acoustics wave-forms into one orthographic text string out of the infinite set… More

VOICE-ACTIVATED COMPUTERIZED PATIENT HISTORY-TAKING SYSTEM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $29,274.00

SITE-SPECIFIC AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL TRAINING SIMULATOR WITH SPEECH INPUT & OUTPUT

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Philip C. Shinn , Director, Contracts
Award Amount: $49,841.00
Abstract:
The goal of this project is to develop a site-specific functional prototype air traffic control (atc) training simulator. the system will support speaker-independent, continuous speech recognition for input of trainee commands,and will also support real-speech output of pseudo-pilot responses,… More

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $317,348.00
Abstract:
The phase i project goal is to research and develop an automated patient information and history-taking-system utilizing speech input and output. such an automated systemcould streamline patient information management, allowing for more complete information with less physician time. in addition,… More

A VOICE-ACTIVATED COMPUTERIZED PATIENT DATA-GATHERING SYSTEM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: William S Meisel
Award Amount: $49,000.00
Abstract:

LANGUAGE ENGINEERING IN SPEECH RECOGNITION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $49,740.00
Abstract:
Speech recognition technology can be used for interacting with a computer by speaking to it. continuous speech and large vocabularies create the need for a language model to resolve words and phrases that sound alike. in some applications, it is necessary to "engineer" a language to deal with the… More
