Hamed Ketabdar is a Senior Research Scientist at Quality and Usability Group, Deutsche Telekom Laboratories (T-Labs), Berlin, Germany. His main topic of research in T-labs is context aware applications for mobile phones. In order to recognize context, different modalities such as audio and sensory data are used. Recognition of context is then used to enhance behaviour and functionality of mobile phones, as well as designing new applications for security, health care and monitoring purposes.
He received his PhD in Automatic Speech Recognition from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology at Lausanne (EPFL). He was a research assistant in Speech group of Idiap Research Institute (www.idiap.ch) from 2004 to 2008. During PhD studies, his research has been mainly on using artificial neural networks for acoustic modelling in speech recognition systems.

! Course material to be covered has finished
Last lecture: 20.01.2011, 2:15-3:45 pm, please ask reception at 18th floor for the room.
Regular lectures ends on 20.01, there is no lecture on 27.01. There can be (optional) lectures in first two weeks of Feb. upon request of at least one student by email in advance. These lectures cover advanced topics related to HMMs and Information Theory.
As it has been announced during the lectures, please contact us to set up an oral exam appointment sometimes in Feb. and March.
Lecture slides can be found here.
I am currently looking for interns and student workers in the above mentioned fields. I can also offer diploma/master/magister projects in different fields. Please contact me in case of interest.
