Smartfony mają zniknąć za 5 lat ?

... i to głównie przez niechęć do ekranów i zużywanej przez nie energii. Tak wskazuje ankieta przeprowadzona przez Ericssona na 100 00 osób: http://www.cnbc.com/2015/12/09/people-think-the-smartphone-will-be-dead-in-5-years-ericsson.html

Google zrobił ASR na RNN offline na smartfonach

Google opublikowało badania z których wynika, że na Nexusie 5 ASR działa w ok. 7x czasu rzeczywistego przy zużyciu łącznie 20 MB pamięci, i w trybie dyktowania (open dictation task) WER pogarsza się jedynie z 11% do 13% w stosunku do wersji online na serwerze. http://research.google.com/pubs/pub44631.html www.dsp.agh.edu.pl

Telesprzedaż na czele listy zawodów które zostaną całkowicie zautomatyzowane

"BBC, naukowcy z Uniwersytetu Oksfordzkiego i firma Deloitte opracowali listę 365 zawodów i poddali je ocenie, w jakim stopniu są zagrożone ryzykiem automatyzacji i cyfryzacji. Według raportu w Wielkiej Brytanii w ciągu najbliższych dwóch dekad zniknie 35 proc. zawodów.
Największe ryzyko utraty pracy dotyczy osób zatrudnionych w telesprzedaży. Szansa na to, że zawód ten zostanie zautomatyzowany w ciągu najbliższych dwóch dekad, wynoszą aż 99 proc."

In order to facilitate submission we have decided to reduce the formatting requirements as much as possible at this stage. Please, have a look at www.ltc.amu.edu.pl (Paper Submission section).

All submissions are to be made electronically via the LTC 2015 web
submission system (EasyChair). Acceptance/rejection notification will be sent by October 1, 2015. The Word template (ELRA/LREC based format) is available from http://www.ltc.amu.edu.pl (see Paper Submission section).

PUBLICATION POLICY
Acceptance will be based on the reviewers' assessments (anonymous submission model). The accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings (hard copy, with ISBN number) and on CD-ROM. The abstracts of the accepted contributions will also be made available via the conference page (during its lifetime). Publication requires full electronic registration and payment of the conference fee (full registration) by at least one co-authors in the due time (dates will be presented soon at the conference site). One registration fee entitles publication of one paper.

A post-conference volume with extended versions of selected papers is planned to be published. As this was the case for the last three conferences, we intend to publish them in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence.

FedCSIS

Nasz artykuł "COMPARISON OF LANGUAGE MODELS TRAINED ON WRITTEN TEXTS AND SPEECH TRANSCRIPTS IN THE CONTEXT OF AUTOMATIC SPEECH RECOGNITION" został przyjęty na konferencję FedCSIS. Praca opisuje nasze eksperymenty statystyczne nad różnicami w stosowaniu transkrypcji mowy i innych tekstów do modelowania języka przy rozpoznawaniu mowy.

We investigate whether language models used in automatic speech recognition (ASR) should be trained on speech transcripts rather than on written texts. By calculating log-likelihood statistic for part-of-speech (POS) n-grams, we show that there are significant differences between written texts and speech transcripts. We also test the performance of language models trained on speech transcripts and written texts in ASR and show that using the former results in greater word error reduction rates (WERR), even if the model is trained on much smaller corpora.   For our experiments we used the manually labeled one million subcorpus of the National Corpus of Polish and an HTK acoustic model.
