Dr. Srinivas Bangalore is currently a Principal Member of Technical Specialist in the Voice and IP Services Laboratory at AT&T Labs-Research. He received his PhD in Computer Science from University of Pennsylvania in 1997. His dissertation on Supertagging was awarded the Morris and Dorothy Rubinoff award for outstanding dissertation that has resulted in or could lead to innovative applications of computer technology. He has been at AT&T Labs-Research since 1997 and has worked on many areas of natural language processing including Spoken Language Translation, Multimodal Understanding, Language Generation and Question-Answering. He has co-edited a book on Supertagging, authored over a 100 research publications and holds over 45 patents in these areas. Dr. Bangalore has been adjunct associate professor at Columbia University and a visiting lecturer at Pricenton University. He has been awarded the AT&T Outstanding Mentor Award, in recognition of his support and dedication to AT&T Labs Mentoring Program and the AT&T Science & Technology Medal for technical leadership and innovative contributions in Spoken Language Technology and Services.  He has served as an editorial board member of Computational Linguistics Journal and a program committee member for a number of ACL and IEEE Speech conferences.

Projects
Connecting Your World, The need to be connected is greater than ever, and AT&T Researchers are creating new ways for people to connect with one another and with their environments, whether it's their home, office, or car.

Speech translation, AT&T Research is developing a real-time speech-to-speech translation technology so the translation starts as soon as speech is detected.
