New Project: "LemonSpeech: Next Generation Speech Recognition and Speech Control for German"
9 September 2021
Knowledge Technology is commencing a new research project "LemonSpeech: Next Generation Speech Recognition and Speech Control for German".
Duration: August 1st, 2021 - July 31th, 2022 Mentor: Prof. Dr. Stefan Wermter Associates: Dr. Johannes Twiefel, Matthias Möller, Felix Hattemer
LemonSpeech is a project government-funded by the EXIST program of the Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie. It is based on seven years of research on domain-dependent automatic speech recognition (ASR) performed by the Knowledge Technology group. It aims to transfer the research from English ASR to German ASR and evaluate the possibility for a market entry. Also, further research is performed to reach state-of-the-art performance in German ASR. The novel models aim to achieve equivalent performance as computationally intense Cloud-based ASR models, while being runnable on inexpensive local hardware. The models developed in the last years are evidently runnable on this hardware, future models will be adapted to it.
