This course will introduce techniques used in speech technologies, in large part focusing on speech recognition but also other tasks. Speech recognition is one of the oldest and most complex structured sequence prediction tasks receiving significant research and commercial attention, and therefore provides a good case study for many techniques used in other areas of artificial intelligence involving sequences. The course will include practical homework exercises using Matlab and speech toolkits.
