Full-time summer position available
An NSF-funded project in the Computer Science department at the University of Chicago is looking for a full-time undergraduate summer intern for the Summer of 2007. The project explores computational approaches to speech recognition and understanding, specifically recognition of tone and intonation. The summer position would continue development of a tool to support computer-assisted learning of tone and intonation. Building on existing software, the plan is to build an interface to provide feedback to language learners by identifying errors in their own speech both visually and auditorily as well as employing synthesis to demonstrate the correct pronunciation. Interested candidate should contact Gina Levow at levow “AT” cs.uchicago.edu for more detail.
