Let the Machine take the Minutes – Alissa's Speech Recognition Pet Project

Alissa Hodge is a Technology Developer I at V75 Inc. who works in our AI department building conversational AI experiences.

Alissa updates us with her work on “Session”, her pet project – an application which uses speech recognition to automate the transcription and formatting of meeting minutes, so we humans have more time to do less mundane things. While “Session” is still in its infancy, it has great potential and presents opportunities to explore other interesting areas such as named-entity recognition and text summarization techniques, just to name a few.

V75 Pet Projects are tech projects undertaken by interns, apprentices and engineers at V75 Inc. to help them learn new technologies and enhance their developer skills. Some projects are truly innovative while others may be unoriginal; learning is the ultimate goal here.
