Sachgebiet Speech Recognition, Machine Learning
Beschreibung Speech Recognition enables a machine to understand human voice and convert it to text. State-of-the-art speech recognition systems are based on a combination of neural networks and hidden markov models. Modern speech recognition systems have already matured, with many methods to reduce error rates and improve the robustness against noise.
However, in the light of recent advances in machine learning, modern methods can be applied to speech recognition, for example, (deep) neural network vector-quantizers, generative adversarial
networks (GANs) or attention-based neural networks.

The main task will be about using neural networks for the acoustic model in speech recognition.
Neural networks will be trained in the kaldi [1] speech recognition framework and Pytorch or Tensorflow.
