Human Language Technology

Winter Seminar Series on Human Language Technology

The Human Language Technology Lab is organizing a seminar series in this winter season of 2019. The series will cover various topics along the breadth and depth of speech signal processing, natural language processing and machine learning. We have a range of eminent personalities, who are experts in the respective fields, discussing several recent, innovative and relevant trends in the wide area of speech, audio and language processing. The details are as follows:
