In the United States alone, there are 2.5 Million Americans with severe speech impairments many of whom rely on computerized voices to express themselves. Yet many of them use the same voices as there are only a few options. That’s tens of millions of people world wide using generic voices.

VocaliD creates custom crafted synthetic voices by combining the recipient’s residual vocal abilities with an anatomically similar voice donor’s speech database. The result is a voice that sounds like the recipient in age, personality and vocal identity but is as clear and understandable as the donor’s speech.

Zephyr Energy

Zephyr Energy Corporation is an alternative energy company that aims to revolutionize windenergy harvesting with its non-rotating wind-energy generator technology. An engineering capstone project by Tom Olsen, ME’11, supervised by Professor Mo Taslim, the generator’s groundbreaking design makes it more versatile as an option for the military, commercial, humanitarian, and scientific sectors.
