Course Description (Objectives)
Speech recognition by machine, which has long been a dream of the human being, is now becoming a reality. Due mainly to the development of statistical recognition techniques and large speech databases, as well as advances in computer technology, last two decades witnessed a dramatic progress in the field. The aim of this lecture is to give basic ideas of fundamental techniques that have made such technological innovation possible.

(Outline of Class and Contents)
A brief list of subjects:
1) Perspective of speech science and technology
2) Acoustical properties of speech signal
3) Speech analysis techniques
4) Dynamic time warping
5) Principle of statistical speech recognition
6) Hidden Markov models (HMMs) for acoustic modeling
7) Statistical language model
8) Continuous speech recognition by HMMs
9) Speaker recognition 

(Assessment Policy)
Assessment will be based mainly on students' reports submitted at the end of the semester (90%). Contribution for class discussions will also be taken into account (10%). Attendance at more than 66% of the classes is a necessary condition for acquiring credits.

Textbook  
Pre-requirement  
Course Description (Objectives) This lecture may be devoted to the fundamental operation principles of electron devices including their engineering science and design.

(Outline of Class and Contents) 
Electron (solid state) devices are representative with diodes, BJT/MOS transistors, and their integrated circuits (IC) which are found in PC, TV, celluar phones, copy machines etc. The lecture is recommended forelectronic/electric engineering students taking their first course in electron devices, in which they are hoped to have some knowledges to quantum mechanics and solid state physics.
The lecture was proceeded following the textbook; from Chap.1 (Basics of Quantum Mechanics) to Chap.8 (Photonic Devices), totally about 500 pages. After some 
important points in each Chapter being explained, several 
review questions were assigned as a homework every week. 
As the final report, selected problems in each Chapter were assigned for evaluations. 

(Assessment Policy) Answers for review questions and the final report are overall objects for the grade evaluations.
