Talk Title: Correcting Person Names for Automatic speech recognition (ASR) vendor-agnostic voice assistants

Speaker: Vijay Ramakrishnan, Tue Minh Vo, Cisco
Talk Description:  ASR systems trained on generic data often mis-transcribe domain-specific words and phrases. For voice assistants, errors in the ASR transcript cascade to the assistant's natural language understanding (NLU) components. We focus on the problem of ASR errors in person names and describe a novel method of correcting person names by leveraging a domain-specific language model (LM), and character and phoneme-based information retrieval (IR) techniques.

Bio: Vijay Ramakrishnan is a ML/NLP engineer at Cisco's Cognitive Collaboration Group where his team develops conversational AI products for Cisco's collaboration portfolio. His research interests include deep networks for domain-specific ASR, empirical methods for NLP and ML for sequence models.
