Profile

Prof. Roger K. Moore studied Computer and Communications Engineering at the University of Essex and was awarded the BA (Hons) degree in 1973. He subsequently received the MSc and PhD degrees from the same university in 1975 and 1977 respectively, both theses being on the topic of automatic speech recognition.

After a period of post-doctoral research in the Phonetics Department at University College London, Prof. Moore was head-hunted in 1980 to establish a speech recognition research team at the Royal Signals and Radar Establishment (RSRE) in Malvern.

In 1985 Prof. Moore became head of the newly created `Speech Research Unit` (SRU) and subsequently rose to the position of Senior Fellow (Deputy Chief Scientific Officer - Individual Merit) in the `Defence and Evaluation Research Agency` (DERA).

Following the privatisation of the SRU in 1999, Prof. Moore continued to provide the technical lead as Chief Scientific Officer at 20/20 Speech Ltd. (now Aurix Ltd.) - a joint venture company between DERA (now QinetiQ) and NXT plc.

In 2004 Prof. Moore was appointed Professor of Spoken Language Processing in the `Speech and Hearing` Research Group (SPandH) at Sheffield University, where he is pioneering research that is aimed at developing computational models of spoken language processing by both mind and machine.

Research interests

Prof. Moore is currently working on a unified theory of spoken language processing in the general area of `Cognitive Informatics` called `PRESENCE` (PREdictive SENsorimotor Control and Emulation). PRESENCE weaves together accounts from a wide variety of different disciplines concerned with the behaviour of living systems - many of them outside the normal realms of spoken language - and compiles them into a new framework that is intended to breathe life into a new generation of research into spoken language processing.

Prof. Moore is involved in collaborations aimed at Clinical Applications of Speech Technology (particularly for  individuals with speaking difficulties) and he is becoming increasingly involved in Creative Applications of Speech Technology through interactions with colleagues from the performing arts.
