"Automatic Speech Recognition" is an introduction to the field of automatic speech recognition. The course starts with the basics of human speech production and perception as well as theory of signal processing. The main part of the course covers how speech can be modeled for automatic speech recognition and the state-of-the-art in automatic speech recognition. The course concludes with approaches and methods for using automatic speech recognition in human-machine communication in various contexts.
