Malcolm Slaney (Fellow, IEEE) is a Principal Scientist in Microsoft Research's Conversational Systems Research Center in Mountain View, CA. Before that he held the same title at Yahoo! Research, where he worked on multimedia analysis and music- and image-retrieval algorithms in databases with billions of items. He is also a (consulting) Professor at Stanford University's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA), Stanford, CA, where he has led the Hearing Seminar for the last 20 years. Dr. Slaney is also an affiliate professor in the department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington. Before Yahoo!, he has worked at Bell Laboratory, Schlumberger Palo Alto Research, Apple Computer, Interval Research, and IBM's Almaden Research Center. For the last several years he has helped lead the auditory and attention groups at the NSF-sponsored Telluride Neuromorphic Cognition Workshop. He is a coauthor, with A. C. Kak, of the IEEE book Principles of Computerized Tomographic Imaging. This book was republished by SIAM in their Classics in Applied Mathematics series. He is coeditor, with S. Greenberg, of the book Computational Models of Auditory Function. Prof. Slaney has served as an Associate Editor of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON AUDIO, SPEECH, AND SIGNAL PROCESSING, IEEE MULTIMEDIA MAGAZINE, the PROCEEDINGS OF THE IEEE, and the ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications, and Applications.
