Abstract:

A computer speech understanding program is used as an illustrative example of a typical program at Rand. The various elements of a complete speech processing procedure are illustrated. Processing of the electrical signal corresponds to the temporal variation of the pressure or acoustic waveform. There has to be a model of the language, with the rules and their variations specified, and a model of the user and an indication of what constraints he puts on the system. Semantic processing of these various elements allows the computer to interpret or understand what has been said.
