Description

Describes the state of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Speech Recognition Project as of Spring, 1969. A discussion of the problems of speech recognition is followed by two real time demonstrations of the current system. The first shows the computer learning to recognize phrases and second shows how the hand-eye system may be controlled by voice commands. Commands as complicated as, "pick up the small block in the lower left-hand corner," are recognized and the tasks are carried out by the computer controlled arm.

Sponsored in part by the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) of the U.S. Department of Defense.
