Say what? Analysing speech at SAS

I rarely get to talk about my work at SAS since mostly it’s experimental research and development, and therefore kept fairly hush hush. Recently, however, I had to the opportunity to write a guest article for about a project I’ve been working on for the past few months.

Having partneredĀ up with a Scottish speech-to-text company, we built a system which could take reams of audio, transcribe them, and then perform some pretty sophisticated text analysis to work out the people and locations mentioned in the audio (and what their connections were), as well as identifying any number of discussion topics.

The article itself is very high level, so you don’t need to be technical to understand it. It’sĀ an introduction to the concept, and some of the applications for the method.
