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.
