    Dr. Frank Rudziczis an expert in speech recognition and artificial intelligence in applications designed for individuals with special speech characteristics at Toronto (Canada) Rehabilitation Institute (University Health Network). His work in natural language and speech processing is multidisciplinary and involves machine learning, human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, computer vision, speech-language pathology, rehabilitation engineering, digital signal processing, and linguistics. His research augments existing techniques by refining the statistical relationships between neural, articulatory, and acoustic levels of speech within modern automatic speech recognition systems. These augmented speech systems can be for several applications including: i) automated human-computer dialog systems that include speech synthesis to help individuals complete daily tasks and ii) prosthetic communication aids for human-human interaction that modify the acoustics of hard-to-understand speech to make it more under standable. Dr. Rudzicz is also Assistant Professor, Department of Computer Science, University of Toronto and Associate member, School of Graduate Studies.
