[R] – Speech Model Pre-training for End-to-End Spoken Language Understanding

(reposting, I guess the first time I didn’t have a tag so it was removed)

Here’s a new paper and new dataset for spoken language understanding (SLU):

Paper: arxiv.org/abs/1904.03670

Code: https://github.com/lorenlugosch/pretrain_speech_model

Data: https://www.fluent.ai/research/fluent-speech-commands/

We use transfer learning (pre-train the model on LibriSpeech) to improve end-to-end SLU models, and we introduce a new speech dataset that can be used for SLU experiments, or more generally audio and sequence classification experiments.

I’m the first author; let me know if you have any questions!
