It was a sad decision. After a long soul-searching, I decided to leave CMU and join a startup company called Scanscout. I must be out of mind!!
Anyway, my new job require knowledge in speech recognition, information retrieval and video processing. These are all good fit for me. I could tell you I have a lot of fun!
Sphinx, in particular the trio, Sphinx 3.X, SphinxTrain and CMULMTKV3 are now maintained by David Huggins-Daines and Evandro Gouvea. I still keep a nominal maintainership but these two are the true heros in the story now.
However, feel free to chat with me on anything related language processing. I am more than happy to be there.
