Arnold Hensman - lecturer in the School of Informatics and Engineering here in ITB, was an invited academic to teach at the Institut Universitaire de Technologie Grenoble as part of their English week, beginning Jan 13th 2014. He delivered a module in Speech technologies and Natural Language Processing to French computer science students.

 

 

English week was established at the university to aid the growing need for computing and engineering graduates to become fluent in technical English terminology. Each year, academics from the United Kingdom, Ireland and the United States have been invited to Grenoble to deliver computing modules through English.

As part of the Erasmus student exchange programme, several students from IUT2 Grenoble are also currently studying at ITB for one year across a number of disciplines.

 

 

Arnold is a member of the Computational and Functional Linguistics Group at ITB, which has been engaged in several research projects in the areas of machine translation, sign-language synthesis and recognition, as well as speech signal processing. He is also module leader for the Applied Language Engineering and Biometrics modules at ITB.
