Dr William HutchisonDr. William Hutchison, Chief Scientist, has worked for 26 years applying principles from behavioral and biological sciences to engineered products, including speech recognition and vision as well as the synthesis of the two. Bill was one of the independent inventors in 1983 of modern neural networks and cofounder of BehavHeuristics, Inc., which developed one of the earliest, largest, and most successful applications of the technology: a system that adaptively controlled pricing for USAir (and other airlines) to earn USAir $140 million in its first year. Bill has worked with the inner controls of IBM’s and Microsoft’s speech recognition engines in multiple commercial applications, and has also developed his own successful complete speech recognition system from the ground up, with sound signal processing and recognition processes designed and optimized by learning and by genetic algorithms in parallel. He also developed a successful genetically engineered vision system that has been applied with robots in complex real world scenes. Another of his 6 patents covers the biologically inspired architecture that enables vision to improve speech recognition and for speech to improve visual recognition. Bill has published and presented over 70 papers in professional journals and conferences, served as reviewer for major professional journals and conferences, and served on several NSF review and planning committees. His recent work has focused on the integration of multiple complex sensory modalities to control complex actions in complex natural environments in the form of biorobots, supported by the prestigious Intelligence Technology Innovation Center. He received his BA in Mathematics, Psychology, and German at Kansas University, and earned a Ph.D. in Psychology at SUNY Stony Brook.
