Subject: AFOSR STTR on Cortical Acoustic Analysis From: Dan Ellis <dpwe(at)EE.COLUMBIA.EDU> Date: Wed, 5 Feb 2003 23:20:25 -0500
Dear List - Willard Larkin of the Air Force Office of Sponsored Research asked me to bring a new AFOSR program to the attention of the list: This STTR program will pair an academic/non-profit research lab with a small business. The brief topic description below is taken from the longer announcement, which is posted on the AUDITORY site at the specified URL. It sounds very interesting! DAn. http://www.auditory.org/etc/AF03T006.pdf TITLE: Application of Cortical Processing Theory to Acoustical Analysis TECHNOLOGY AREAS: Human Systems OBJECTIVE: Develop a computational model of human auditory processing based upon cortical theory and data. Demonstrate its utility to evaluate and/or improve systems for speech communication and automated recognition of spectro-temporal patterns.
