Abstract or Description

Abstract: "In the past few years, there have been many special purpose hardware designs emerging to support speech recognition systems. This paper tries to identify the the [sic] system requirements of different spoken language systems' components, such as search and training. Some general design criteria of speech hardware architecture are also presented. Based on these criteria, we survey a variety of notable special purpose computer architectures designed for speech recognition systems and make a paper-and-pencil evaluation of those architecture alternatives."
