    Speech recognition to say it just right

    Speech recognition to say it just right

    Catherine Breslin of Cobalt joins Daniel and Chris to do a deep dive on speech recognition. She also discusses how the technology is integrated into virtual assistants (like Alexa) and is used in other non-assistant contexts (like transcription and captioning). Along the way, she teaches us how to assemble a lexicon, acoustic model, and language model to bring speech recognition to life.

Great scope and content of AI related topics

I’ve been listening to this podcast lately on my way to work, and I want to say I really enjoy the its scope and the practical aspects that it covers. I especially enjoyed episode 51 with Joel Grus as he shared a lot of his insights for programming for good science and have tried to embody his practices as well as watching some of his live coding sessions on Youtube, which are great. I’m doing research in NLP at a university and I’ve always felt like my research code was not quite professional and reader-friendly, and I made good use of the learning resources that this podcast always provides.
