Exploring Swahili Speech Recognition Model Development

AI Webinar

Fri 31 Mar2023 | From 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.


Despite the existence of more than 7000 languages in the world, a small group of just 10 languages dominates the majority of internet usage. Africa is home to more than 2000 languages, and individuals in these countries are at a high risk of missing access to accurate and relevant information due to low internet penetration. This webinar presents the continued effort to change this story by developing speech software for low-resource languages. Join Antony and the Marconi Lab as they share their progress in developing Swahili speech recognition software.
