Activity of the research group:

Our lab group is an "old hand", we have been present at the Department of Telecommunications and Media Informatics of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics since the beginning. Our main areas of expertise are speech communication and speech technology in Hungarian, human-machine, human-robot interfaces, assistive interfaces for blind, visually impaired and speech impaired users, general statistics and modern machine learning algorithms. A strong focus on deep learning research and education. We have gained experience in a number of national and international projects in the broader field of ICT applications (customer service automation, self-driving cars, etc.). Our technologies have been applied in practice in these areas for decades.
