Session title – AI for Speech & Language Processing

Abstract of the topic: ML/DL techniques are increasingly being applied to various Speech use cases like Speech Recognition, Machine Translation, Text to Speech, NLP etc. In this talk, Raghavendra Bhat will capture the lay of the land on various topologies, what kind of demands they place on the hardware and end with presentation on various tools available to run such workloads most efficiently on Intel compute assets.


Yash Akhauri

Junior at BITS Pilani, Intel Student Ambassador.

Yash Akhauri is an Intel Student Ambassador. He is pursuing a B.E. in Electronics and Instrumentation from BITS Pilani. He pursues deep learning research, particularly in the field of computer vision. He is currently working on a new neural network quantization technique which increases the 'capacity' of a neural network while still maintaining the inference advantage of binary neural networks. He hopes to introduce this technique in the form of 'Hadamard Binary Neural Networks' and in the process resolve some central issues faced by distributed artificial intelligence and inference/training in constrained environments. His interests extend to High-Performance Computing and Artificial Intelligence.
