Speech and Hearing Bioscience and Technology

The Speech and Hearing Bioscience and Technology PhD program in the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology is an interdisciplinary training program designed to produce the next generation of pioneers in basic and clinical speech and hearing research. The program was established in 1992 by Nelson Kiang, and is currently co-directed by Drs. Louis Braida and Bertrand Delgutte.

As of 2006, the program has graduated about 60 PhD students in nearly all areas of speech and hearing research: auditory mechanics, peripheral and central auditory neuroscience, auditory psychophysics, hearing aids/cochlear implants, speech perception and production, machine processing of speech, language processing, voice disorders/laryngeal physiology, and vestibular physiology.

There are about 50 faculty members in the SHBT program, most of which hold appointments at MIT or Harvard Medical School. The main laboratories are at MIT, Harvard, the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Children's Hospital, Boston University, and Northeastern University.

Famous quotes containing the words technology, hearing and/or speech:

    One can prove or refute anything at all with words. Soon people will perfect language technology to such an extent that they’ll be proving with mathematical precision that twice two is seven.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

    She had some art of hearing and yet not
    Hearing the latter wisdom of the world.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Lying increases the creative faculties, expands the ego, lessens the friction of social contacts.... It is only in lies, wholeheartedly and bravely told, that human nature attains through words and speech the forebearance, the nobility, the romance, the idealism, that—being what it is—it falls so short of in fact and in deed.
    Clare Boothe Luce (1903–1987)
