Online Speech and Language Resources Tutorial


Research and development in speech and language technology are facing a fundamental paradigm shift. More and more speech and language resources, tools and even entire workflows are becoming accessible online in the context of the emerging research infrastructures.

In this tutorial, leading experts in the field of speech and language resources will discuss both opportunities and challenges of online resources. They will present state of the art technology for metadata, web services, persistent identifiers, and human and machine readable online repositories. Showcases and real world applications will illustrate how these technologies can be put into use. The target audience of the tutorial are professionals from speech and language technology development, research and higher education.
