In developing MASTOR
, which started in 2001, IBM did a lot of work to effectively mitigate the impact of speech recognition errors and non-grammatical inputs common in conversational speech.
offers users the ability to have a free-form conversation without having to memorize any pre-determined phrases.
These military units will, in turn, use MASTOR
to facilitate military and medical-oriented conversations with members of the Iraqi security forces, in hospital settings, and during daily interactions with Iraqi citizens.
offers a database of around 100,000 Iraqi Arabic words and 50,000 English words and searches the library to compile sentences in real time, with a text version of conversations made available for download.
So, even though IBM says it has some work to do before MASTOR
is ready for prime time, it's still about 150 years ahead of Star Trek.
Development of the MASTOR
technology began in 2001 at IBM's T.

Por otro lado, la relacion directa entre el RWA y una orientacion politica de derecha resulta coherente si se toma en cuenta que uno de los componentes actitudinales del RWA es el convencionalismo o defensa de las tradiciones (Altemeyer, 1981, 1988, 1998, 2004; Cottam, DietzUhler, Mastors & Preston, 2004; Jost, Glaser, Kruglanski & Sulloway, 2003).
USI Holdings Corporation ("USI"), today announced the closing of the acquisition of Mastors & Servant Risk Services ("Mastors & Servant").
