Message 1: Graduate Course: Computer Speech, Text, and Internet Technology

Subject: Graduate Course: Computer Speech, Text, and Internet Technology

- ----------------------------------------------------------------------

 This course has replaced the highly successful M.Phil in
 Computer Speech and Language Processing. 

 Like its predecessor, a key aim of the masters course in
 Computer Speech, Text and Internet Technology is to teach the
 fundamental theory of speech and natural language processing.
 However, the new course also focuses on its application to
 information management and access within the framework of emerging
 Internet and W3C standards, such as XML text and speech annotation.

 It runs from early October to end of July and consists of two terms 
 of lectures and practicals followed by a three month project. The
 final degree is awarded on the basis of coursework, examination
 and project.

 The course differs from some other programmes by providing an
 in-depth practical and theoretical grounding in the techniques for
 speech and language processing which form the basis for today's
 commercial and research prototype systems. There are strong links
 with industry and many of our past students have gone on to work
 for high-tech start-ups and industrial research laboratories, either
 immediately or after completing a PhD.

 To further strengthen our links with industry, we are making this
 course available to students wishing to pursue it on a part-time
 basis. (Note that part-time enrolment requires attendance in
 Cambridge 1+1/2 days / week during term time.) 

 Cambridge is a major international centre for research in both
 speech and language processing. The course is taught by leading
 researchers in these areas who have active collaborations with
 industrial and academic laboratories in Europe, the US and Japan.

 The EPSRC have funded a number of studentships for the course which
 are currently available to qualifying applicants. We especially
 encourage applications from students with a background in
 engineering, computer science, mathematics, and/or linguistics.
