Speech Technology and Research (STAR) Laboratory
SRI International's Speech Technology and Research (STAR) Laboratory
is recognized as a world-leading speech technology organization.
Our staff includes engineers,
computer scientists, and linguists, offering a fine balance of the
skills required for leading-edge development. For government and
commercial clients, we offer technology creation and transfer in
areas such as signal processing, phonetics/phonology, mathematical
modeling, and software engineering.
In the 1990s, SRI spun off market leader Nuance
Communications (Nasdaq: NUAN) to exploit technology developed
in the STAR Laboratory. Nuance's speech software solutions enable
automated access to information and services using nothing more
than the power of voice and an ordinary telephone.
Our current technologies for license include EduSpeak, DynaSpeak,
and the SRI Language
Modeling Toolkit (SRILM).
We are actively researching new technologies like SenSay Analytics as a platform that performs real-time speaker state classification from spoken audio.
