Abstract:

The Hearsay-2 system, developed at CMU as part of the five-year ARPA speech-understanding project, was successfully demonstrated at the end of that project in September 1976. This report reprints two Hearsay II papers which describe and discuss that version of the system The Hearsay-2 System A Tutorial, and A Retrospective View of the Hearsay-2 Architecture. The first paper presents a short introduction to the general Hearsay-2 structure and describes the September 1976 configuration of knowledge-sources it includes a detailed description of an utterance being recognized. The second paper discusses the general Hearsay-2 architecture and some of the crucial problems encountered in applying that architecture to the problem of speech understanding.
