What we're about

ACM Washington DC is a non-profit professional group that meets regularly to discuss diverse topics in computer science such as predictive analytics, applied machine learning, statistical modeling, open data, data visualization, user experience, user research, and artificial neural networks. Meeting topics are varied and range from tutorials on basic concepts and their applications, to success stories from local practitioners and academic students, to discussions of tools, new technologies, and best practices. All are welcome to attend, to meet others, and to present their work.
ACM Washington DC is officially a part of the ACM Local project of Association for Computing Machinery, Inc.

**We do take photos of both in-person and virtual meetings to share on social media in an effort to garner future interest on the group. If you do not want to be included, please let us know**

ACM DC/ACM Chicago Joint Meetup - Automatic Speech Recognition: An Overview

Link visible for attendees

Virtual Presentation

Loyola University and the Chicago Chapter of the ACM presents "Automatic Speech Recognition: An Overview"

Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) systems translate spoken utterances into text. ASRs are a crucial component of conversational assistants like Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, etc. They are also used for closed captioning, interfacing with automated cars or homes, voice-biometrics, and provide improved access to technology. The global market for services enabled by ASR engines is estimated to grow to $20.9 billion by 2026.

In this talk, Nikhita Sharma will provide an overview of how ASR systems work and discuss the challenges associated with training and using such systems. She will also touch on the history of ASR systems, their applications, and limitations.

Nikhita Sharma is a Computer Scientist at Vail Systems, Chicago. She has over four years of experience in machine learning research, primarily focused on conversational AI, Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), software engineering and model deployment. She has a master’s in computer science from Iowa State University.
