Speech recognition experts at OGI School of Science & Engineering receive nearly $700,000 in grants

er for Spoken Language Understanding assistant professor Peter Heeman, Ph.D., also has received a three-year $580,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, in conjunction with University of New Hampshire and University of Michigan researchers, to improve human-computer dialogues in situations where people are doing more than one activity at a time, such as driving. The OGI School of Science & Engineering's share of the grant is $350,000.

"It's hard enough for the human brain to tackle more than one task at once," noted Heeman, a computer scientist in the OGI School of Science & Engineering. "If you add a computer into the mix, there are certain interactions between man and machine that need to be more thoroughly developed so the computer does what it is supposed to do and the person running the computer doesn't get frustrated with the machine. Ideally, computers should be trained to work with and for people, not the other way around."

The OGI School of Science & Engineering (formerly the Oregon Graduate Institute of Science & Technology) became one of four specialty schools of Oregon Health & Science University in 2001. The OHSU OGI School of Science & Engineering has 63 faculty and more than 300 master's and doctoral students in five academic departments.

The Center for Spoken Language Understanding has four full-time faculty, three senior research associates, a dozen graduate students, and additional programming staff. For more information, visit www.cslu.cse.ogi.edu/.
