Project Description

Speech and conversational interfaces are becoming increasingly popular in homes and workplaces in developed countries. For emergent users - those with typically low literacy, disposable income and access to education and technology - such systems currently seem a long way off. There are many potential benefits of these systems in such contexts, however, whether in public or private settings, or in a variety of physical forms: this project will explore the possibilities for smart speakers with emergent users.

Entry requirements

Candidates must have a minimum of an upper second class honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject, or an appropriate Master’s degree (with Merit). Informal enquiries are welcome by emailing the project supervisor.

For candidates whose first language is not English, we require IELTS 6.5 (with 6.0 in each component) or equivalent. Please visit our website for a list of acceptable English language tests. We prefer candidates to have already met the English Language requirements at the point of application, although this is not a requirement.
