                    [post_content] => From the article:

"Further advancements in artificial intelligence, such as natural language processing, will improve the quality of such systems, says Mari Ostendorf, a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Washington and a leading scientist on speech and language technology. She notes that one of the reasons that home voice assistants are so advanced is because they’re expecting children to use them, and since their voices are so different, Google and Amazon and Apple have spent years trying to do better, investing millions to use billions of interactions to further improve the recognition model, and they’re under intense competitive pressure to be constantly updating."

                    [post_content] => ECE professor Denise Wilson has been working and studying in the engineering field for 30 year. As a professor in sensors and photovoltaics and engineering education, she sharedFemale ECE student her thoughts on the gender pay gap with Nature.

“A lot of women who go into software and app development are doing well,” she was quoted as saying in the article. “As more and more fields in engineering become focused on medicine and health care, that’s also going to contribute to a shrinking of the gender gap.”

He is the second recipient of this award, Rajesh Rao, director of the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE) and professor in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering was the first.

[caption id="attachment_14109" align="alignleft" width="300"]Chet Moritz Chet Moritz receives the CJ and Elizabeth Hwang endowed professorship in electrical and computer engineering.[/caption]

The professorship is built on the Hwangs’ shared vision of making life better for those with paralysis. It supports the critical advancement of rehabilitation technologies for spinal cord injury and stroke. The nature of this research requires a multi-disciplinary approach.

Moritz was named an Allen Distinguished Investigator and appointed to the Christopher & Dana Reeve International Consortium on Spinal Cord Repair. Chet serves as the Co-Director for the Center for Neurotechnology, and NSF Engineering Research Center (ERC). He is also the founding director of the Washington Spinal Cord Injury Consortium (WASCIC).  He directs the Restorative Technologies Laboratory (RTL) which focuses on developing technologies to treat paralysis due to spinal cord injury.

He is the second recipient of this award, Rajesh Rao, director of the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE) and professor in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering was the first. [caption id="attachment_14109" align="alignleft" width="300"]Chet Moritz Chet Moritz receives the CJ and Elizabeth Hwang endowed professorship in electrical and computer engineering.[/caption] The professorship is built on the Hwangs’ shared vision of making life better for those with paralysis. It supports the critical advancement of rehabilitation technologies for spinal cord injury and stroke. The nature of this research requires a multi-disciplinary approach. Moritz was named an Allen Distinguished Investigator and appointed to the Christopher & Dana Reeve International Consortium on Spinal Cord Repair. Chet serves as the Co-Director for the Center for Neurotechnology, and NSF Engineering Research Center (ERC). He is also the founding director of the Washington Spinal Cord Injury Consortium (WASCIC).  He directs the Restorative Technologies Laboratory (RTL) which focuses on developing technologies to treat paralysis due to spinal cord injury.   [caption id="attachment_14113" align="alignleft" width="300"]Hwangs and CoE CJ and Elizabeth Hwang, Radha Poovedran, Chet Moritz and Michael Bragg[/caption]               [caption id="attachment_14112" align="alignleft" width="300"]Friends and faculty of ECE Friends and faculty of ECE[/caption]       [post_title] => Chet Moritz appointed as Hwang Professor [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => chet-moritz-appointed-as-hwang-professor [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2019-01-30 11:43:34 [post_modified_gmt] => 2019-01-30 19:43:34 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://www.ece.uw.edu/?post_type=spotlight&p=14047 [menu_order] => 6 [post_type] => spotlight [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) ) [post_count] => 6 [current_post] => -1 [in_the_loop] => [post] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 14175 [post_author] => 22 [post_date] => 2019-02-15 15:14:09 [post_date_gmt] => 2019-02-15 23:14:09 [post_content] => From the article: "Further advancements in artificial intelligence, such as natural language processing, will improve the quality of such systems, says Mari Ostendorf, a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Washington and a leading scientist on speech and language technology.
