I spent some time in the city of Aachen this summer, collaborating with the Human Language Technology and Pattern Recognition Group to continue my work on ASR, in particular on streaming ASR using the software and tools developed at this well-known research group lead by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hermann Ney.
I had the opportunity to experience a different way of doing research, learning about RASR and RETURNN, two powerful frameworks to perform state-of-the-art ASR. I met very interesting and smart people there that are some of the top researchers in ASR. I enjoyed sharing the office and having interesting discussions with Wei Zhou and sharing lectures, presentations and other activities with the rest of the team. It was a very nice place to extend my knowledge and research experience. In addition, I want to thank Priv.-Doz. Dr. rer. nat. Ralf Schlüter to take the time to talk and discuss ideas and proposals with me for future research regarding streaming ASR. I hope we can collaborate in the near future. And finally, I want to thank Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hermann Ney to give me the opportunity to go through this fulfilling experience.
