||IEEE SCV Signal Processing Society Seminar -- The evolution of advanced speech input and output technologies now allow us to explore new possibilities in automated language instruction, where the machine presents students with highly interactive lessons for acquiring a new language. This talk will provide an overview of the state-of-the-art technologies in computer assisted language learning, and introduce several real-world applications. We will also provide an industry-wide overview of how speech technologies are being used now and could be used in the future in the context of language learning applications. Demonstrations of software products and technologies focusing on automated language education will be given to illustrate the power of using speech input/output technology in solving real, specific problems.
