Beats, Rhymes and Unit Tests

Hip Hop and Unit Tests. A match made in heaven? Speech recognition is all around us. From the smartphones in our pockets to the devices at the heart of our digital homes, we’re never far from this technology. Not only does it enable new ways of interacting with computers, it’s also set to reshape HCI for people requiring assistive technologies. Through a mix of audio, video, and performance, Tony will explore Web Audio AP in an attempt to convince the audience of its suitability for audio transcription. This is a fast-paced and highly engaging talk with a crescendo you won’t forget.
