Deep Learning in Speech Recognition

Alex Acero

While neural networks had been used in speech recognition in the early 1990s, they did not outperform the traditional machine learning approaches until 2010, when Alex's team members at Microsoft Research demonstrated the superiority of Deep Neural Networks (DNN) for large vocabulary speech recognition systems. The speech community rapidly adopted deep learning, followed by the image processing community, and many other disciplines. In this talk I will give an introduction to speech recognition, go over the fundamentals of deep learning, explained what it took for the speech recognition field to adopt deep learning, and how that has been contributed to popularize personal assistants like Siri.
