NE:Tech - February 2021

Online event

The first NE:Tech of 2021! Speech recognition is all around us nowadays. Both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant are common guests within our homes. Both bring an ease of use and accessibility which dwarfs that of technology 10 years ago. Home assistant tech is just one application of speech recognition though. There are a huge number of potential ways we could apply it. This month Steven Waterman, a developer who has featured in Baeldung's 'Java Weekly' on a number of occasions, returns to NE:Tech to demonstrate how he used speech recognition to his advantage in order to assist in the narration of blogs. NE:Tech will be hosted online via the attached Zoom link. Although we would like to return to face-to-face meetups, the health and safety of our members is a top priority. We are paying close attention to the government guidelines and will return to physical meetups when it is safe and sensible to do so. A little about Steven and his talk: Steven Waterman - Developer @ NHS --------------------------------------------------------- * I built a website to automatically edit audiobooks * Using 6 experimental web APIs and some Soviet maths I built https://narration.studio as a way to automate the process of editing the narration for my blog posts. As it turns out, that's not a simple task, and it's even harder when you want it to happen in pure Javascript. This is how I did it. About Steven: I'm a complete generalist, finding joy in solving problems *by any means necessary*. I'm a big fan of anything a computer can do that makes my life easier - from automating the lights to type-checking my code reaaaally well. I tend to work on web apps, but that's only because it's so much quicker than the JavaFX hellscape I used to use. I'm always looking for new things to do, and I'm always happy to chat about anything! --------------- Big thanks to our sponsor Scott Logic --------------- NE:Tech events are intended for education, networking, and community.
