The Computational Linguistics and Speech Processing (CLaSP) lab at RIT is dedicated to advancing applied and theoretical research involving text, speech, and multimodal data. An area of focus is linguistic and language-inclusive multimodal sensing. CLaSP provides research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate 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 LC Technologies, Apple, SpaceX, Qualcomm, Cogent Labs (Japan), UL-Wiklund, Athena Health, Facebook, Kensho, Constant Contact, Knewton, Microsoft, IBM, Thompson Reuters, and Pronology. We welcome curious and engaged RIT/NTID students from different disciplines to join us. For more information, please contact Dr. Alm. Location: LBR-A220
