You are a senior scientist in the field of machine speech processing. What exactly are you working on?
I’m responsible for data acquisition and management. My team’s job is to make sure that the AI modules for the voice assistants have high-quality data to learn from. Our work typically revolves around voice assistants for industrial use cases in German.
It’s crucial that the voice assistants process user requests correctly. And to do that, they need what’s known as training data to show them what sentences, commands or questions to expect. The performance of voice assistance modules, machine translation modules, or natural language processing modules in general can only be as good as the training examples they were trained on.
