Biography

Haizhou Li received the B.Sc, M.Sc, and Ph.D degrees in electrical and electronic engineering from South China University of Technology, Guangzhou, China in 1984, 1987, and 1990 respectively. He is now a Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the Department of Mechanical Engineering, National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore.

Dr. Li has worked on speech and language technology in academia and industry since 1988. He has taught in The University of Hong Kong (1988-1989), South China University of Technology in Guangzhou, China (1990-1994), Nanyang Technological University in Singapore (2006-2016), University of Eastern Finland (2009), and University of New South Wales (since 2011). He was a Visiting Professor at CRIN/INRIA in France (1994-1995). Prior to joining NUS, he was a Research Manager in Apple-ISS Research Centre (1996-1998), Research Director of Lernout & Hauspie Asia Pacific (1999-2001), Vice President of InfoTalk Corp. Ltd and General Manager of InfoTalk Technology (Singapore) Pte Ltd (2001-2003), the Principal Scientist and Department Head of Human Language Technology at the Institute for Infocomm Research (2003-2016), and the Research Director of the Institute for Infocomm Research (2014-2016). He co-founded Baidu-I2R Research Centre in Singapore (2012). Dr. Li was known for his technical contributions to several award-winning speech products, such as Apple's Chinese Dictation Kits for Macintosh (1996) and Lernout & Hauspie's Speech-Pen-Keyboard Text Entry Solution for Asian languages (1999). He was the architect of a series of major technology deployments that include TELEFIQS voice-automated call centre service in Singapore Changi International Airport (2001), voiceprint engine for Lenovo A586 Smartphone (2012), and Baidu Music Search (2013).

Dr. Li's research interests include automatic speech recognition, natural language processing and information retrieval. He has published over 400 technical papers in international journals and conferences. Dr. Li is currently the Editor-in-Chief of IEEE/ACM TRANSACTIONS ON AUDIO, SPEECH AND LANGUAGE PROCESSING (2015-2018).
