Oral Language Technology Group

MISSION
Designing innovative methods for learning, processing, and revitalising oral languages

RESEARCH
The Oral Language Technology group brings together strengths in computational linguistics, language revitalisation, and web technologies. We work with oral languages and cultures, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous. We focus on Northern Australia, a region of great linguistic diversity.

PhD PROJECTS
There is an exciting opportunity for research students to develop knowledge and skills in speech and language processing, participatory design, and mobile-assisted language learning. Students will apply the theory to complex problems in language documentation and revitalisation, by conducting fieldwork, developing software, and running experiments. Research will be evaluated according to the usual scientific metrics and also for social impact in local minority communities
