Kaggle Tensorflow Speech Recognition Challenge
From November 2017 to January 2018 the Google Brain team hosted a speech recognition challenge on Kaggle. The goal of this challenge was to write a program that can correctly identify one of 10 words being spoken in a one-second long audio file. Having just made up my mind to start seriously studying data science with the goal of turning a new corner in my career, I decided to tackle this as my first serious kaggle challenge.
In this post I will talk about ResNets, RNNs, 1D and 2D convolution, Connectionist Temporal Classification and more. Let’s go!
