This new Masters course has replaced the highly successful MPhil in Computer Speech and Language

Processing. Like its predecessor, a key aim of the Masters course in Computer Speech, Text and Internet

Technology is to teach the fundamental theory of speech

and natural language processing. However, the
new

course pays special attention to the application of this theory to advanced internet applications.



Web Technology

programming in C++, Java, HTML, XML, client and server
-
side scripting


Speech Processi
ng

analysis, recognition, synthesis


Language Processing

syntax, parsing, semantics, pragmatics


Dialogue Systems

understanding, generation, discourse processing and dialog acts


Internet Applications

document retrieval, topic tracking, information
extraction, voice
-
driven web
access

Speech and audio coding : PCM & ADPCM, predictive vectorial coding, CELP coders, aurdio coding
MUSICAM (MPEG audio)

GOALS

The objective of this course is to explore several aspects of the creation, manipulation, searchin
g and
retrieval of Multimedia

Documents within networked systems. It should cover some of the basic techniques, standards and norms,
and provide a hint at the

major application types.


CONTENTS

The major topics are :

∙ Document Image Analysis

Scanning, im
age filtering, character recognition, handwriting recognition

∙ Document Structure

Document tagging, norms (SGML, MIME, SMIL)

∙ WWW and Advanced applications

Hypertext, hypermedia, URL, HTTP, HTML forms, cgi, cookies, …

∙ Information retrieval :

Boolean se
arch, Vector Space modet, Multimedia indexing and retrieval


Voice, audio, image


and video coding techniques: CELP, JPEG, MPEG, MP3. Data coding standards: G.722, G.726,


G.728, H.261, H.323.
