Q1. What is your role within the healthbots project?
My responsibility is to develop a domain restricted speech recognition system, which will be one of the components within the robot's human dialogue system.
Q2. What excites you about the healthbots project?
I am excited about the multidisciplinary nature and challenges associated with large multidisciplinary research.
