STKU-5: Deep Neural Networks in Speech Recognition

SpeechTEK University – Wednesday, April 26, 2017 – Wednesday 26 April 
13:30 – 16:30

Deep learning is setting new standards of accuracy for financial projections, image processing, advertising, translation, games, and virtually every field where we use massive databases to train systems for estimation, classification, and prediction. This tutorial reviews recent advances in machine learning with a focus on Deep Neural Nets (DNNs) for speech recognition and natural language processing. The session includes demonstrations and hands-on exercises. We recommend that participants bring a laptop. Attendees gain an understanding of DNN fundamentals, how they are used in acoustic and language modeling, and where technology appears to be headed.
