Zapowiedź – 81. Spotkanie – Automated Assessment of Pronunciation in L2-English

Serdecznie zapraszamy na nasze spotkanie w poniedziałek 24 lutego 2020, odbędzie się ono o 18.oo w sali 106 ETI PG.

Prelegentem będzie Grzegorz Beringer (Amazon).

Temat prelekcji to: Automated Assessment of Pronunciation in L2-English.

Opis (ang.):
Improving one’s pronunciation is a key issue when learning a new language and wanting to be understood by native speakers.

For this reason, there is a growing need for Computer-Assisted Pronunciation Training (CAPT) software. In this talk, I will show you the problems CAPT deals with, specifically pronunciation error detection and diagnosis, where ML models can greatly help.

We will go from the baseline, a likelihood-based score called Goodness of Pronunciation (GOP), through the analysis of GOP constraints, to finally generating and scoring multiple mispronunciation hypothesis, to find what the learner has actually uttered.

Serdecznie zapraszamy!
