Dr. Paja

On Thursday 9th April, Pavel "Paja" Matejka successfully defended is PhD thesis "PHONOTACTIC AND ACOUSTIC LANGUAGE RECOGNITION". Paja was registered at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication (FEEC BUT) and defended at the Institute of Radioelectronics (the original place of the Speech@FIT group, before it moved to the Faculty of Information Technology in 2002).

He obtained very nice reviews from Doug Reynolds (MIT Lincoln Lab) and Petr Pollak (Czech Technical University in Prague) and the committee was happy with his presentation accessible even to non-speech guys.

Congratulations !
