This paper shows that the integration of statistical and connectionist methods can greatly enhance human-computer interaction through speech. The research approach is inspired by recent advances in high performance automatic speech recognition (ASR) systems and neurocognitive researches of natural language understanding (NLU). And a modest hybrid computational model is proposed and implemented to achieve intelligent spoken language understanding (SLU) in an information retrieval system.
