Tallers de la tecnologia de la parla de Col·lectivaT
Tallers de la tecnologia de la parla de Col·lectivaT, for Col·lectivaT SCCL. 2019. Licence: Tots els drets reservats

Col·lectivaT organizes training sessions to deepen into the speech technologies and the effects of these new technologies in the linguistic field.

Increasingly, we have a dependence on electronic devices and this implies more ways to interact. The field related to the current interaction between human-machine is the automatic speech recognition (RAP), which allows the control of computers with oral commands.

To solve these questions, Col·lectivaT organizes training sessions to deepen into the current situation of speech technologies, as they are dominated by large companies, and how the communities in Catalonia are facing it. The available free tools will be detailed to create RAP systems and the initiatives that are generating open data to train them.

The training is aimed at developers and makers and people working in the language sector and it is necessary to bring a computer.
