Following a conversation and transcribing it precisely is one of the biggest challenges in artificial intelligence (AI) research. For the first time now, researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have succeeded in developing a computer system that outperforms humans in recognizing such spontaneously spoken language with minimum latency. This is reported on arXiv.org.

"When people talk to each other, there are stops, stutterings, hesitations, such as 'er' or 'hmmm,' laughs and coughs," says Alex Waibel, Professor for Informatics at KIT. "Often, words are pronounced unclearly." This makes it difficult even for people to make accurate notes of a conversation. "And so far, this has been even more difficult for AI." KIT scientists and staff of KITES, a start-up company from KIT, have now programmed a  that executes this task better than humans and quicker than other systems.
