Dan Povey's homepage

About me
I am a speech recognition researcher. I am a Research Scientist at the Center for Language and Speech Processing at Johns Hopkins University.

Site contents
The main content of my site is my publications page .
You may also be interested in the Kaldi website.
Here is a page with links to some lectures I started giving about Kaldi (warning: slightly out of date.)
This page (again slightly out of date) describes some research topics I am currently interested in.
(some presentations from the JHU 2009 workshop)

Why does this page look so simple?
I used to have my homepage on Google Sites but it got removed by Google. I believe what happened is I posted a preprint of a paper I had published in an Elsevier journal (Computer Speech and Language) and some copyright goons hired by Elsevier submitted a DMCA request to Google, to get it removed. Although posting preprints is allowed by the journal, and although I immediately submitted a counter-notification, Google killed my site anyway. Since this is the second time my site has been killed, and I expect most US-based web hosting solutions would do the same, I am now hosting my own site.
I host this site myself, using apache2 on Debian linux, which I run as a micro instance in Amazon's EC2 cloud. I use a domain which my wife Nadira had previously registered for me via GoDaddy (she also helped me with the HTML and CSS).
