Scientific Highlights


The RESPITE project has had a highly successful year. Progress has been made on all the major scientific challenges which the project encompasses. The project's success can be gauged by performance of RESPITE systems in the AURORA robust ASR evaluations which took place at Eurospeech 2001 this year. A RESPITE system based on `Tandem multistream recognition' was the overall best performing system. A RESPITE `missing-data' system came in the top three for systems constrained to train on clean speech data.
