privacy-driven machine/deep learning, personalized training, automatic
data labeling, and tighter integration of speech and dialog processing
with machine translation. The technology will be based on existing
software toolkits (Kaldi speech-to-text, Platon dialog processing, Tilde
text-to-speech), as well as new software resulting from these research
efforts. The consortium includes academic and industrial partners in

collaboration with the project lead. This includes orchestrating

disseminating, and communicating the results. He/she will also lead
Inria’s software development and demonstration tasks.

his/her expertise and wishes, these may include: management of R&D
projects in other fields of computer science, involvement in software
and technology development and demonstration tasks, building of industry
relationships, participation in the setup of academic-industry
collaborations, support with drafting and proofreading new project
proposals, etc.
