So the third year has been passed. I mostly worked on developing a couple of hardware projects. Halsey music was a big passion there.
Learning all ML cool stuff now is one of my top priority. Combine it with the emerge of Talon, a powerful C2 grammar framework by Ryan Hileman, and wave2letter a game-changing speech recognition engine from the Facebook AI department, I have some hope to make distinct progress.
Watching Emily Shea demonstrating how she uses Talon to write Perl was a big improvement over the past few years. And then Ryan last week’s tweet: .
Conformer better handles accents as well as fast speech. Here's a demo dictating Vue code at high speed with the new model, with no errors. Compared to two typists on the same code: 80wpm typist took 1m54s, 120wpm took 53s. It took me 1m15s with voice. I think I could go faster! — Ryan Hileman (@lunixbochs) April 3, 2021
