Third International Conference on Spoken Language Processing (ICSLP 94)
This paper describes the architecture and performance of the Berkeley Restaurant Project (BeRP), a medium-vocabulary, speaker-independent, spontaneous continuous speech understanding system currently under development at ICSI. BeRP serves as a testbed for a number of our speech-related research projects, including robust feature extraction, connectionist phonetic likelihood estimation, automatic induction of multiple-pronunciation lexicons, foreign accent detection and modeling, advanced language models, and lip-reading. In addition, it has proved quite usable in its function as a database frontend, even though many of our subjects are non-native speakers of English.
