The science ministry has announced a competition designed to help artificial intelligence understand the way Taiwanese people talk.
The goal of the contest is to improve Chinese language AI speech recognition so that factors like Taiwanese localisms and local accents present less of a challenge. The contest also aims to help AI speech recognition overcome issues like background noise. The first round of the contest is to begin in August and will be limited to students. A second round open to the public is also planned to begin next year.
