Berkeley Restaurant Project (BeRP)
- Description: BeRP is a test bed for a speech recognition
system being developed by the
International Computer Science Institute in
Berkeley, CA. BeRP is a medium-vocabulary, speaker-independent spontaneous
continuous speech understanding system. BeRP functions as a knowledge
consultant whose domain is the restaurants in the city of Berkeley.
The system serves as a testbed for several 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.
- Note: As far as I know the BeRP software is in-house software -
that is, it is not made available for distribution.
