Abdelrahman Mohamed, Microsoft Research

Abstract: In the past decade, the ASR technology made a huge leap forward in terms of word recognition accuracy, leading to the recent announcement of Microsoft of achieving human parity in conversational speech. In this talk, I will reflect on the recent advances in Neural Network models for acoustic models with special interest in understanding the relation between different models. I will also discuss many outstanding research directions to achieve the promise of conversational systems.
