Within sub objective O2, low level modeling and training sessions will be performed for learning the acoustic parameters of the acoustic models, learning the probability structures of the n-grams, and of the morphological and syntactic templates, and accurate detection of the part-of-speech. When designing acoustic and linguistic models, experts on the acoustic and linguists will be employed. In the last year, an expert lawyer will join the project and will help designing experiments with the courtrooms and will contribute to extending the vocabulary for the judicial domain.
Within sub objective O1, the development team will first create the template of the technology, implementing a mock-up architecture with placeholders for various items that should be developed. Next, during the project, algorithms for the acoustic analysis, lexical analysis, morpho-syntactic analysis and efficient search will be developed and, when finished, placed in their holes in the core ASR technology.
