Area of Interest: Speech and Language Processing

Brief Bio:

Kishore S. Prahallad is an associate professor at the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) Hyderabad. He is associated with IIIT Hyderabad since March 2001, and started the speech activities in Language Technologies Research Center (LTRC) at IIIT-H.  He served as a research scientist from 2001-2008, senior research scientist from 2008-2010, assistant professor from 2010-2013.

He did BE in computer science and engineering (CSE) from Deccan College of Eng. & Tech., Osmania University in 1998, MS (by Research) in 2001 from Dept. of CSE, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, and PhD in 2010 from Language Technologies Institute (LTI), School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), USA.

His research interests are in speech and language processing, specifically in text-to-speech synthesis, and speech analytics using untranscribed speech data. His current projects include speech analytics (spoken audio search, speech summarization), building multimodal virtual assistant(s) on mobile devices for illiterate, differently-abled and tourists (specifically in the context of India and Indian languages), collection and automatic annotation of spoken data or oral narratives in ~1000 Indian languages, and learning-to-learn.
