Hervé Bourlard headed the Speech Recognition Research Group, from 1994 to 1997. He had previously been with Philips Research, Brussels, and had been a research group leader at Lernout and Hauspie. His work concentrated on developing the hybrid HMM/ANN and MULTI-BAND speech recognition technologies, in the context of the EC HIMARNNET, SPRACH, STRUT, THISL, and RESPITE projects. In 1997, he left TCTS Lab to become the manager of IDIAP, Martigny, Switzerland. He is also a professor at EFPL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne).
