KRI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Speech and Language Technologies (SLT) and their Applications
Eligible for Home fees status? Apply for Cohort 5 (starting in September 2023) immediately!
Speech and Language Technologies (SLTs) are a range of Artificial Intelligence (AI) approaches which allow computer programs or devices to analyse, produce, modify or respond to spoken and written language. SLTs are underpinned by a number of fundamental research fields including acoustics, signal processing, speech processing, natural language processing (NLP / NLProc), computational linguistics, mathematics, machine learning, physics, psychology, and computer science. SLTs are now established as core scientific/engineering disciplines within AI and have grown into a world-wide multi-billion dollar industry.
Located in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Sheffield – a world-leading research institution in the SLT field and one of the UK's largest speech and language research centres – the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Speech and Language Technologies and their Applications is a vibrant research centre that also provides training in engineering skills, leadership, ethics, innovation, entrepreneurship, and responsibility to society.
