Mini-musings on Speech Recognition

So it’s the start of another year and yet again I am resolving to Be More Organised. Will it finally happen? My main issue is Version Control. I’ve always been a bit lazy with computer organisation (Save to desktop? Check. Clear desktop into a new desktop folder of ‘Stuff’? Check.), and as my PhD drew to a close, it all went a bit wrong! I had files on my work PC, files on my home laptop, files in google drive, and a USB stick, all with slightly different versions and multiple annotated copies of the same bloody files!

This was my computer attempting speech recognition one evening – I think the cat walked over my laptop and switched it on, but interesting to see how skewiff it’s eavesdropping is! Made me think you could have some fun with virtual chinese whispers using generic untrained recognition systems 😉

Anyway, back to the organising – wonder what else I find…
