Jared Bernstein develops devices and systems that measure people’s use of language to measure traits (e.g. skills or attitudes) and states (e.g. affect or energy level). His work focuses on spoken language technology for assessments in education and psychology. Earlier work was in basic speech technology, particularly for prosthetic communication systems. He has led the design of automated spoken language tests in several languages, as well as automated tests of reading skill in English. He co-founded Ordinate Corporation in 1997, Tasso Partners in 2008, and Analytic Measures Inc. in 2014. Dr. Bernstein has been a Consulting Associate Professor of Linguistics at Stanford University since 1985, where he has taught phonetics, applied linguistics, and language testing. He has also taught in Iranian Azerbaijan, Argentina, and Venice, Italy. He holds a PhD in psycholinguistics from the University of Michigan where he was a Rackham Prize Fellow. He is the author or co-author of several patents. His current professional focus is designing and developing voice-interactive mobile apps at Analytic Measures Inc.
