Li Deng (S’83–M’86–SM’91) received the B.S. de- gree from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1982, the M.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1984, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Wis- consin-Madison in 1986. He worked on large vocabulary automatic speech recognition in Montreal, Canada, in 1986-1989. In 1989, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON, Canada as Assistent Professor; he became tenured Full Professor in 1996. From 1992 to 1993, he conducted sabbatical research at Laboratory for Computer Science, Massachusetts Insti- tute of Technology, Cambridge, and from 1997 to 1998, at ATR Interpreting Telecommunications Research Laboratories, Kyoto, Japan. In 1999, he joined Microsoft Research, Redmond, WA, as Senior Researcher, and is currently a principal investigator in the DARPA-EARS program and affiliate Professor of electrical engineering at University of Washington. His research interests include acoustic-phonetic modeling of speech, speech and speaker recognition, speech synthesis and enhancement, speech production and perception, auditory speech processing, noise robust speech processing, statistical methods and machine learning, nonlinear signal processing, spoken language systems, multimedia signal processing, and multimodal human-computer interaction. In these areas, he has published over 200 technical papers and book chapters, and has given keynote, tutorial, and other invited lectures worldwide. He recently completed the book Speech Processing—A Dynamic and Optimization-Ori- ented Approach.
Dr. Deng served on the Education Committee and Speech Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society during 1996-2000, and has, since Febuary 2002, been serving as Associate Editor for the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON SPEECH AND AUDIO PROCESSING.
Kuansan Wang received the B.S. degree from National Taiwan University in 1986, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Maryland at College Park in 1989 and 1994, respectively, all in electrical engineering. From 1994 to 1996, he was with the Speech Research Department at Bell Labs, Murray Hill, NJ. From 1996 to 1998, he was with speech and spoken language labs at NYNEX Science and Technology Center in White Plains, NY. Since 1988, he has been with speech technology group at Microsoft Research in Redmond WA. His research areas are speech recognition, spoken language understanding and multimodal dialog systems.
Alex Acero (S’83–M’90–SM’00) received an engineering degree from the Polytechnic University of Madrid, Spain, in 1985, the M.S. degree from Rice University, Houston, TX, in 1987 and the Ph.D. degree from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, in 1990, all in electrical engineering.
He was a Senior Voice Engineer at Apple Computer (1990–1991) and Man- ager of the Speech Technology Group at Telefonica Investigacion y Desarrollo (1991–1993). He joined Microsoft Research, Redmond, WA, in 1994, where he is currently Manager of the Speech Group. He is also Affiliate Professor at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA. He is author of the books Spoken Language Processing (Upper Saddle River, NJ, Prentice-Hall, 2000) and Acous- tical and Environmental Robustness in Automatic Speech Recognition (Boston, MA, Kluwer, 1993). He also has written chapters in three edited books, seven patents and over 50 other publications. His research interests include noise ro- bustness, speech synthesis, signal processing, acoustic modeling, statistical lan- guage modeling, spoken language processing, speech-centric multimodal inter- faces, and machine learning. He is associate editor of Compute , Speech, and Language.
Dr. Acero served in the IEEE Signal Processing Society’s Speech Technical Committee as member (1996–2000) and chair (2000–2002). He was general co-chair of the 2001 IEEE Workshop on Automatic Speech Recognition and Understanding, sponsorship chair of the 1999 IEEE Workshop on Automatic Speech Recognition and Understanding, and publications chair of ICASSP ’98.
