PROJECT WORKPLAN, MILESTONES
AND DELIVERABLES

WP summary:


1.
WP1: Database gathering from different sources and set up of baseline systems. In this framework, the large vocabulary, continuous speech recognizer resulting from WERNICKE will be extended to French and Portuguese.
2.
WP2: Development of (and development tools for) lexica for multiple languages, including baseline dictionaries for new languages and automatic learning of new dictionaries.
3.
WP3: Development tools and research on different approaches to represent and adapt language models (LM), with particular focus on generality and ease to use.
4.
WP4: Development tools and research on application domain independence and adaptation, including task independency of acoustic models, and unsupervised adaptation and training of speakers and acoustic models.
5.
WP5: More fundamental research into important issues related to speech recognition in general and hybrid systems in particular, including perceptual models, global discrimination, mixture of experts, and others.
6.
WP6: Development of the necessary software and hardware tools necessary to carry out the proposed work.
7.
WP7: Evaluations and prototypes development to regularly assess the progress of SPRACH . Building upon the WERNICKE software, it is expected that some of those demonstration systems will actually be close to real ``products''.
8.
WP8: Results dissemination and exploitation.
The original aim of the last 6-12 months of this project was to place most of the emphasis on prototype development of WP7 (demonstrations and evaluations).
