2014 PhD Research Fellowship Openings
The Signals and Interactive Systems Lab (University of Trento, Italy) is looking for top-candidates for funded PhD research fellowships. We are looking to cover the following areas of interest:
- Signal Processing for Speech and BioSignals
- Automatic Speech Recognition
- Natural Language Understanding (Text/Speech/Multimodal)
- Dialog Modeling and Systems (Text/Speech/Multimodal )
- Machine Learning
Candidates will be working on research domains such as Mobile Interactive Agents, Question Answering Systems, Speech/Text Mining, Statistical Machine Translation, Human Behavior Understanding, Crowd Computing and ICT applications to teaching and learning. Visit lab page and demos.
The SIS Lab research is driven by interdisciplinary approach to research, attracting researchers from disciplines such as Digital Signal Processing, Speech Processing, Computational Linguistics, Psychology, Neuroscience and Machine Learning.
The mission of the lab is to
A) Understand diverse signal ( e.g. speech, text, biosignals, multimodal ) generated by humans in their interactions with machines, humans and complex systems including both.
B) Train and design machines that are able to support humans in their interactions in a social, physical and virtual space.
