We hope that you will be able to join us for the next Artificial Intelligence SIG byte-size event, ‘Demystifying speech recognition’ on 17th April 2018 at Amazon, Cambridge.

Registration begins at 17:30 and the event starts at 18:00. Networking and refreshments will follow the end of the session from 19:15 to 20:15.  Beer, soft drinks and pizza kindly provided byAmazon.

This is the third in our new series of byte-sized events from the Artificial Intelligence group and we are delighted that Catherine Breslin, Manager of Machine Learning at Amazon Alexa will be speaking on the subject of ‘Demystifying speech recognition’.  Catherine is a machine learning scientist specialising in speech and language technology with more than 13 years’ experience in academic research and bringing machine learning to products.  She leads a team of scientists in Cambridge working across automatic speech recognition (ASR) and natural language understanding (NLU) for Amazon Alexa.

About this event:

Voice is the future – we believe that voice will fundamentally improve the way people will interact with technology. It can make the complex simple—it’s the most natural and convenient user interface. There are hard problems to solve with voice – we’ve spent years of invention on this. At Amazon we’re fortunate to have the power of the AWS cloud and teams of incredibly talented speech scientists to help solve these very hard problems. This talk will discuss some of the machine learning technology that underpins Alexa’s voice recognition capabilities, and how the technology is available to developers via the Alexa Skills Kit.
