Using Speech Applications in Robotics
Brad Kayton, CEO - Vgo Communications, Inc.

The use of robotics, such as the Vgo telepresence robot, is becoming widespread. These types of robots basically represent the user in remote locations. The robot uses text-to-speech synthesis to communicate with those around it. Find out how managers, executives, and students use the robot to navigate through a workspace and interact with its inhabitants.

Language Learning With Speech and 3D Video
K.W.'Bill' Scholz, President - NewSpeech LLC

The benefit of using speech-enabled animated video for teaching language has been well-demonstrated. Animated video captures the attention of the
student, and the professionally recorded audio track provides a pronunciation target, which students attempt to match. Speech recognition provides
an indication of their degree of mastery. Combining 3D video with speech technology provides a more compelling vehicle for language instruction.
This presentation focuses on techniques for integrating cloud-based speech technology with 3D video as a platform for teaching language over the public internet.
