Universitat Politècnica de València (UPVLC) is a high education institution with clear interests in research. The Pattern Recognition and Human Language Technology (PRHLT) research group is composed by researchers from Universitat Politècnica de València. The members of the PRHLT group develop their research activity both in the Departamento de Sistemas Informáticos y Computación and in the Instituto Tecnológico de Informática. The PRHLT group is composed by 15 PhD researchers (most of them are Professors) and 22 pre-doctoral students. The main research areas of the PRHLT are: speech and text translation and transcription; automatic speech recognition and understanding; machine learning; and image analysis and computer vision. The PRHLT is collaborating with important research groups of Spain and the European Community in handwritting text recognition and transcription. The PRHLT has been involved in a large number of projects since 1995 with public and private budgets devoted to automatic and interactive translation and transcription, in particular with EU through ESPRIT (EuTrans) and IST projects (TT2) and with the Spanish government through CICYT projects .
The PRHLT group is currently involved in the use of interactive techniques for machine translation and transcription through the large budget MIPRCV Spanish project (lead by PRHLT). MIPRCV establishes a five-years research programme to develop pattern recognition approaches that explicitly deal with the challenges and opportunities entailed by the human interaction paradigm.
