   Research topic


        I work in the domain of artificial neural networks, data mining,
   and speech synthesis. In 1992 I completed the six month research
   fellowship on the CIRC-EPFL in Lausanne with Prof. Martin Hasler. At
   time I started my research  in  speech  processing.  In  1993  I
   obtained  the Attestation  from  the  Computer  Science  Postgraduate
   Course of Biological and Artificial Neural Networks on EPFL. Now, I
   concentrate on  prosody modelling for Text-to-Speech Synthesis
   Systems in  Czech language  especially. I  applied the artificial
   neural network approach for  prosody parameters control.


   75 contributions in the journals and  proceedings were published in
   1975 - 2001 ( in 1975-1993  the topics were from the theory of the
   linear circuits, active filters especially, from  1993 the
   publications are from the theory and applications of the artificial
   neural networks and speech processing).
