Spoken Language Interface Development - Summer/Fall 2017

Spoken Language Interface Development

Members of the Spoken Language Systems Group are actively developing a
speech interface to help people log their food intake by voice (see
recent MIT News article).  We have several opportunities for UROP
students to participate in this research.  Someone with app devlopment
experience on iOS or Android and interests in human-computer
interaction could help create a mobile version of the web platform,
and potentially extend the system functionality as well (e.g.,
personalization).  We are also looking for students to assist with
data collection and annotation via crowdsourcing (i.e., Amazon
Mechanical Turk).
