Speech and language applied sciences keep growing in significance as they're used to create typical and effective interfaces among humans and machines, and to instantly transcribe, extract, learn, and path info from high-volume streams of spoken and written details. The workshops on Mathematical Foundations of Speech Processing and common Language Modeling have been held within the Fall of 2000 on the collage of Minnesota's NSF-sponsored Institute for arithmetic and Its purposes, as a part of a "Mathematics in Multimedia" year-long application. each one workshop introduced jointly researchers within the respective applied sciences at the one hand, and mathematicians and statisticians nevertheless, for a thorough week of cross-fertilization. there's a lengthy historical past of reap the benefits of introducing mathematical suggestions and ideas to speech and language applied sciences. Examples comprise the source-channel paradigm, hidden Markov versions, choice timber, exponential versions and formal languages idea. it really is most likely that new mathematical suggestions, or novel purposes of present thoughts, will once more end up pivotal for relocating the sphere ahead. This quantity includes unique contributions offered through contributors through the workshops. themes comprise language modeling, prosody, acoustic-phonetic modeling, and statistical method.
