Automatic speech recognition has recently received enormous attention with the advent of cloud-based services such as Cortana, Siri, Majel and other virtual avatars. A recording comes from the device, is processed on a remote server, which sends some text back to the user. Round-trip latency: <200ms. Can we ever achieve better results with a microprocessor running FOSS or is speech truly a black box problem? State of the art ASR libraries are certainly slower and less accurate, suggesting all of the innovation will happen inside a datacenter or microchip, behind NDAs and closed doors. We will review the state of offline ASR technology and attempt to deconstruct that notion. No prior speech recognition experience is required.

As a Java developer and technical evangelist, I am interested in human computer interaction, speech recognition and natural language processing, particularly in low-power applications such as mobile phones and wearable devices.
