Spoken Language Systems
MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory


Since its formation in 1989, the SLS group has focused its research on the creation of technology that enables humans to interact with computers using natural spoken language. In pursuit of this goal SLS students and researchers are actively engaged in a number of research projects. Some of the current projects are:

Core Technology Development
To support its research on spoken language systems for human/computer interaction, the SLS group has developed its own suite of core speech technologies. These technologies include:
Application Development
To demonstrate the capabilities of the technologies they have developed, the SLS group has developed a wide variety of spoken language applications. Current applications include:
  • City Browser provides information about restaurants in serveral cities.
  • Weather Query provides information about the weather.
