Fred Jelinek
It is generally believed that scientific talent reveals itself in early youth. [...] This was certainly not my case. I somehow slid into my scientific profession. My mother wished for me to become a physician, just like my father. [...] I myself wanted to be a lawyer, defender of the unjustly accused. But my career is the result of political circumstances, academic possibilities, and lucky accidents.
Jelinek quotes
Every time I fire a linguist, the performance of our speech recognition system goes up.
He was not a pioneer of speech recognition, he was the pioneer of speech recognition.
