New speech recognition experiments demonstrate how machine learning can scale

Customer interactions with Alexa are constantly growing more complex, and on the Alexa science team, we strive to stay ahead of the curve by continuously improving Alexa’s speech recognition system. Increasingly, keeping pace with Alexa’s expanding capabilities will require automating the learning process, through techniques such as semi-supervised learning, which leverages a small amount of annotated data to extract information from a much larger store of unannotated data.Read More
