A Speech Recognition Sing-along
Lecture by Joe Tepperman
Performance by Mooey Moobau
8pm Friday September 5th, 2008
Everyone seems to hate automatic speech recognition. Either it keeps us from telling an actual person that we need our water turned back on, or it dials Mom when we’re trying to call Molly. It is no wonder most musicians and spoken-word poets have no idea about the huge potential for speech technology to be used in their work. Joe Tepperman will talk about some of the ways we can apply speech recognition, speech synthesis, and linguistic theories to music, followed by a performance by his alter ego, Mooey Moobau.
