In this episode, I was lucky enough to talk to Eric Booth about some exciting advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) and how speech recognition technology is helping children who have speech difficulties.
Eric, who looks after business development for Micron’s data center customers, is something of a Renaissance man. He’s a chip designer, a college lecturer and a business development manager. Oh, and he’s an AI researcher. He’s working on his Ph.D. thesis, which is, as you might expect, about speech recognition for children with disabilities. This is an especially challenging field because all children’s speech patterns are constantly changing, so models trained using adult speech don’t work very well. Eric is working on novel techniques to fix that problem.
That unusual combination highlights one of the great things about Micron: It’s possible to do all these things at once, making meaningful contributions to the business, our customers and the state of the art in life-enriching AI applications.
And just what do AI, speech therapy and recommendation engines have in common? You’ll just have to watch to find out.
