The first projects focused on human-machine (telephony) dialogues. Later on, the focus shifted to Large Vocabulary Speech Recognition: the recognition of spontaneous spoken speech in meetings, interviews, over the phone and more.
A neatly pronounced CV (in Dutch) with almost perfect recognition can be found here on my own website.
In the press
There is also 2x a piece in the newspaper appeared. Finally I wrote quite a few pieces for all kinds of magazines and websites. If I have written it all by myself, I call it a blog and it is under the Blogs, if I was interviewed (and then I could rewrite the whole piece myself anyway), then it comes under Web.
The overview of these "press moments" can be found here.
