Director Cissi O. Alm is welcoming new graduate (PhD and MS) and undergraduate students to join the CLaSP lab, including from computational or cognitive science disciplines and with research interests in human-centered AI such as intelligent affective computing, interpretable linguistic or multimodal sensing, multimodal dialogue systems, or the roles of humans in AI systems such as in interactive machine learning.

The Computational Linguistics and Speech Processing (CLaSP) lab at RIT is dedicated to advancing applied and theoretical research involving text, speech, dialogue, and multimodal data. An area of focus is linguistic and multimodal sensing. CLaSP provides research opportunities for graduate (PhD and MS) and undergraduate students, and hosts a regular student research discussant series. The lab collaborates closely with other research groups on campus. Recently graduated former students have gone on to jobs in AI, software and user interface development, game development, human factors, etc. including employers such as EyeGaze Inc, ISI, Digital Ocean, Apple, SpaceX, Qualcomm, Cogent Labs (Japan), UL-Wiklund, Athena Health, Facebook, Kensho, Constant Contact, Knewton, Microsoft, IBM, Thompson Reuters, Smartvid, and Pronology. For more information, please contact Dr. Alm. Location: LBR-A220.
