This paper refers to a m achine-mediated person-to-person multilingual communication system. Stress is put o n r obust-ness, t h a t i s t h e a bility o f t h e system to preserve communication even in presence of the v ariability a n d errors typical of spoken language systems. The s t a t istical approach is adopted not only at t h e acoustic level, but… (More)
In this work we describe the development and evaluation of SpeeData, a prototype for multilingual spoken data-entry. The SpeeData project aims at developing a demonstrator that provides a user-friendly interface for spoken data-entry in two languages: Italian and German. A real world application domain is considered, which is the Land Register of an Italian… (More)
1 In this paper we present a multilingual application for speech technology. The SpeeData project aims at building a demonstrator that provides a user-friendly interface for spoken data-entry in two languages: Italian and German. The application domain is the land register of an Italian region in which both languages are oocially spoken. The considered… (More)
Characteristics and experimental evaluation of diierent modules necessary in the C-STAR scheduling scenario for speech-to-speech translation will be presented, together with the data collected and labeled so far. Design features of other modules will also be presented.
Spontaneous increases of plasma density, up to ~1.6 times the Greenwald value, are observed in FTU with lithized walls. These plasmas are characterised by profile peaking up to the highest obtained densities. The transport analysis of these discharges shows a 20% enhancement of the energy confinement time, with respect to the ITER97 L-mode scaling,… (More)
