- Nov 30 -- On Tuesday December 5 we will meet in the lab. If all goes as planned we will go to the Natural Language Lab (in room EE/CS 2-208) to get a demonstration of the speech recognition system that is being developed there. The reading you have for Tuesday will give you some basic knowledge on speech recognition. Do not forget to check the questions you need to address in your writeup.

It could be a starting point for anyone interested in going deeper into this issue for the class paper.
