Congratulations to Professor Phil Woodland on being elected Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering. 

Phil Woodland, Professor of Information Engineering, University of Cambridge has carried out pioneering work in the development of large vocabulary speech recognition, both in academia and industry. His contributions include the invention of a technique for adapting recognisers automatically to different speakers and the development of a framework for discriminatively training acoustic models to minimise errors. Both are widely used in today’s commercial speech recognition systems.
