We investigate devices which learn to understand and act upon spoken input. The ultimate goal of these speech understanding systems is to extract meaning from the speech signal. A crucial issue in engineering such devices is to quantify the information content of spoken natural language, and to be able to measure a machine's success in extracting that information. This paper discusses some recent progress in this direction.
