Description

Kyle Gorman (GC Linguistics (formerly at Google)) presents:

Linguistics in the Tech Industry

In this talk I will touch on three questions:
1) How is linguistics used in private-sector speech and language technology research and development?
2) What do linguists do in such settings?
3) How can linguistics students train for jobs in this sector?

To answer these questions I will draw primarily on my own professional experience, but I'll also talk a bit about some research in this area.
