Offline Speech Recognition for Mobile Developers

We will review the state of offline speech recognition and discuss how to write your own SR app. No prior experience required.

About This Session

Automatic speech recognition has recently received enormous attention with the advent of cloud-based services such as Cortana, Siri, Majel and other virtual avatars. A recording comes from the device, is processed on a remote server, which sends some text back to the user. Round-trip latency: <200ms. Can we ever achieve better results with a microprocessor running FOSS or is speech truly a black box problem? State of the art ASR libraries are certainly slower and less accurate, suggesting all of the innovation will happen inside a datacenter or microchip, behind NDAs and closed doors. We will review the state of offline ASR technology and attempt to deconstruct that notion. No prior speech recognition experience is required.
