Come to The Makerspace for a presentation on Speech Recognition by Aaron Chantrill!
The presentation will cover the theory behind speech to text processing and include a tutorial that will teach you how to set up both Phocketsphinx and DeepSpeech. At the end of the presentation participants will have a simple, programmable virtual assistant that does speech to text processing locally and thus will work without an internet connection and won't share your voice or data unless you want it to!
Required: A fresh virtual machine installation of Debian 9.4 ("Stretch") 64-bit (amd64)
