Masterclass Language and Speech Technologies

posted Nov 8, 2010, 8:14 AM by Marco Spruit
On November 4, 2010, I attended a masterclass which provided an overall update regarding the current state-of-the-art in Language and Speech Technologies at Nyenrode Business University in Breukelen. See attachment for the complete programme. Since one of my aims was to get a better grasp on the applicability of the current tools in the medical and governmental sectors, I was especially pleased to find out that speech technologies are considered more or less a commodity nowadays, which was joyfully illustrated by the launch of the support for Dutch in Google Voice on the Android platform. Below some random notes of this interesting day.
