a focus on information retrieval and interactive spoken language

continuous speech recognition software.

employees worldwide and is an acknowledged world-leader in many
markets, including cameras, photocopiers and printers. Constant
innovation underlies Canon's success and at CRE you will have the
opportunity to play a large part in this. We also offer an excellent
working environment and a highly competitive salary and benefits

We are looking for outstanding people who are self-motivated, have an

 Someone with excellent programming skills and significant
 relevant experience in one or more areas of NLP. Experience of
