Multilingual Speech Technologies (MuST) is a research niche area of North-West University, Vaal Triangle Campus, consisting mainly of engineers and computer scientists actively involved in speech technology and pattern recognition research. The research group collaborates in various local and international research projects, working with partners and clients from industry, government and NGOs.
At MuST we create and apply speech technologies within a multilingual context. We provide a focused, project-oriented learning environment to younger researchers, and provide senior researchers with significant freedom in choosing how they contribute to the group’s activities. Initiated from the Faculty of Economic Sciences and Information Technology, Vaal Triangle Campus, our research activities include a small student presence at the CSIR in Pretoria, as well as a satellite research office in Hermanus, where group members and visiting scientists can spend time away from it all, in an environment that is conducive towards focussed research.
