Future Computing Environments Seminar
Thursdays 4:30-6:00pm in CRB 381
This quarter, we will be concentrating on statistical
approaches to natural language. For a brief introduction to the
topic, check out the discussion in the latter half of the March
10 FCE Seminar from last quarter.

Hidden Markov Models, in Fundamentals of Speech Recognition,
