Bio

Stephen Levinson - Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UIUC

Stephen E. Levinson was born in New York City on September 27, 1944. He received the B. A. degree in Engineering Sciences from Harvard in 1966, and the M. S. and Ph.D. degrees in ElectricalEngineering from the University of Rhode Island, Kingston, Rhode Island in 1972 and 1974, respectively. From 1966-1969 he was a design engineer at Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics in Groton, Connecticut. From 1974-1976 he held a J. Willard Gibbs Instructorship in Computer Science at Yale University. In 1976, he joined the technical staff of Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, NJ where he conducted research in the areas of speech recognition and understanding. In 1979 he was a visiting researcher at the NTT Musashino Electrical Communication Laboratory in Tokyo, Japan. In 1984, he held a visiting fellowship in the Engineering Department at Cambridge University. In 1990, Dr. Levinson became head of the Linguistics Research Department at AT&T Bell Laboratories where he directed research in Speech Synthesis, Speech Recognition and Spoken Language Translation. In 1997, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he teaches courses in Speech and Language Processing and leads research projects in speech synthesis and automatic language acquisition. He is also a full-time faculty member of the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology where he serves as the head of the Artificial Intelligence group. Dr. Levinson is a member of the Association for Computing Machinery, a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers and a fellow of the Acoustical Society of America. He is a founding editor of the journal Computer Speech and Language and a former member and chair of the Industrial Advisory Board of the CAIP Center at Rutgers University. He is the author of more than 100 technical papers and holds seven patents. His book, published in 2005 by John Wiley and Sons, Ltd.,is entitled "Mathematical Models for Speech Technology"
