MSc in Speech and Language Processing

Speech Hearing and Language Research Centre
Department of Linguistics

Macquarie University
Sydney, Australia

This Masters program at Macquarie University, Sydney, has been designed
to take advantage of a strong research and development base to provide
a grounding in speech and language technology for graduates who want to
be part of this exciting field.

This is a coursework degree and can be taken over one year full time or
two years part time. Starting in 2000 we are hoping to offer the degree
in distance mode (by correspondence) -- you should be able to complete
the degree within two years in this mode.

The program includes a set of compulsory units introducing speech and
language processing and a range of elective units which explore topics
in detail. Students complete a one-paper research/development project
in thier final semester.

The course is designed for graduates in related disciplines, for
example, Computer Science, Linguistics, or Electrical Engineering, who
wish to gain sufficient expertise in this inherently cross-disciplinary
area to effectively participate in speech and language projects in
industry and academia.

Students >will gain an understanding of how document imaging can be used and managed >in both small and large scale organizations. Document imaging is the >process of taking documents out of file cabinets, and off shelves, and >storing them in a computer. This course provides an understanding of the >details that there is often no time to review in the rush to implement a >system. Students will learn about the technology of scanning, importing, >transmitting, organizing, indexing, storing, protecting, locating, >retrieving, viewing, printing, and preserving documents for document >imaging systems and digital libraries. Image and document formats, >metadata, multimedia, rich text, PDF (Portable Document Format), GIS >(Geographic Information Systems), CAD (Computer Aided Design), virtual >reality indices, and image enabled databases will be discussed. System >design issues in hardware, software, ergonomics, and workflow will be >covered. Emerging technologies such as the DVD Digital Video Disk and very >high speed Internet, intranet, and extranet links and protocols will be >discussed. The course will include the DVD's role in completing the >merging to the PC and television, the merging of telephony, cable, and the >Internet, the merging of home and office, the merging of business and >entertainment, and the management of the resulting document types. Many >professionals including records managers, librarians, and archivists work >with document management issues every day. While not limited to these >professionals, this course builds on the broad range of tools and >techniques that exist in these professions. The class content is designed >so that students can benefit from each part of the class without fully >understanding every technical detail presented.
