In this edition of "Getting to Know Your Fellow Researchers" we are very happy to get to know Dilek Hakkani-Tür of Amazon Alexa AI.  Dr. Hakkani-Tür is a fellow of both the IEEE and ISCA. She has a comprehensive perspective on conversation, dialog, spoken language processing and offers her insights to us in this column.


Hynek Hermansky has been awarded the 2020 James L. Flanagan Speech and Audio Processing Award "For contributions to speech processing and feature extraction for robust speech recognition". Huge congratulations for a very deserved acknowledgement! We featured Prof. Hermansky in "Getting to Know Your Fellow Researchers" last March. This is as good a time as any to check it out, if you missed it then.
