  • Speech synthesis: A technology that speaks for itself: Each method has its own trade-off. High quality output limits your vocabulary, while a more mechanical sound lets you say more

    Synthesized speech is all around you — from talking games and products such as Texas Instruments' Speak & Spell, automobile dashboards that announce warning messages, computers that provide voice output, and consumer appliances that “speak” information and instructions. These sounds do not result from playing back a magnetic recording, but rather are created by basic sp... View full abstract»

    Work in the area of speech recognition by computer has been taking place for about 30 years — almost since the inception of the computer itself. The results of these efforts can be seen today in a number of products capable of various degrees of speech recognition. Although the systems used in these products exhibit limitations when compared to people's ability to recognize and respond to s... View full abstract»

    Believe it or not, long before gasoline became an inexpensive and abundant commodity, there was an electric car. Recently, with constant uncertainties about the availability and cost of oil, interest in the electric car has been resparked. Detroit Edison, which conducted research on electric cars for many years, purchased its first modern electric in 1977, a converted American Motors Pacer Wagon t... View full abstract»

    They were once known as masters of the “glad hand and the glib tongue,” and their plaid jackets and loud ties caused many to exclaim in mockery, “Would you buy a used car from this man?” Today, however, used-car salesman jokes are going out of style as a new corps of sophisticated sales representatives in gray flannels, pin-striped blues, and highly paid jobs is quickly...

    A dilemma with which all technical people are faced, at one time or another during their careers, is what to do with an idea or invention they have developed. Should they write about it? Obtain a patent? Sell it to a company? Or let it sit on the shelf? If you are a budding inventor, there are a few pointers you should know, even before you decide what to do with your idea. In any type of research... View full abstract»

  • Co-oping: A short-term option with long-term payoffs: A “co-op” exhibits self-confidence, experience, and a perspective other students don't have. There are benefits for academia and industry too

    More and more colleges and corporations are taking part in a growing option of higher education known as cooperative education, or the coop program. The co-op concept, which was started in 1906 at the University of Cincinnati by Professor Herman Schneider, is based on the idea that students should be able to get practical experience to supplement their course work. Ann Keeling, assistant dean/asso... View full abstract»

  • Oscilloscopes: The digital alternative: The digital scope's capability in measurement, transient capture, and data storage is a significant improvement over its analog counterpart

    As with its analog counterpart, the primary function of a digital oscilloscope is to graphically display the voltage and time characteristics of an analog waveform. The front panel controls are also very similar, including amplifier, triggering, sweep timing, and display. However, the digital oscilloscope not only acquires and displays analog signals, it also stores them in a solid state memory, a... View full abstract»
