(Redirected from João Paulo da Silva Neto)
João Paulo Neto

João Paulo Neto graduated in Electrotechnical and Computers Engineering by the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Lisbon, in 1987, and received his MSc and PhD degrees in Electrotecnic and Computers Engineering, from the same University in 1991 and 1998, respectively. His PhD thesis was on speaker-adaptation in a context of hybrid Artificial Neural Networks and Hidden Markov Models continuous speech recognition systems. In 1991 he started as lecturer and since 1998 he holds a position of Assistant Professor in Instituto Superior Técnico, where he has taught signal theory, discrete signal processing, control systems and neural networks. He joined the Neural Networks and Signal Processing group of INESC in 1987, having participated in the European projects PYGMALION, WERNICKE, SPRACH and ALERT and in several national projects. In 2001 he participated in the foundation of L2F where hold a position in the Executive Board. His activities have been in the areas of neural networks (training algorithms and applications) and speech recognition (HMM/neural network based). He has authored a significant number of scientific papers. He is a member of IEEE and ISCA.
