👋, I'm Kathy Reid @kathyreid
Do you work with #voice or #speech #data? You might contribute data, write data specifications for collection, perform filtering or pre-processing, train #ASR or #TTS models, or design or perform evaluations on #ML speech models.
If so, I’d love your help to understand current #dataset #documentation practices, and what we can do to make them better as part of my #PhD #research at ANU's School of Cybernetics.
The #survey takes 10-20 minutes to complete, and you can opt in to win one of 3 gift cards valued at $AUD 50 each.
Research Protocol 2021/427 approved by #ANU Human Research Ethics Committee

I'm into open source systems, and I'm a PhD student at the @3AInstitute at Australian National University in Canberra, where I'm looking at voice data and its biases, with a focus on speech technology that works better for more people. I have a Research Partnership with @Mozilla's Common Voice team.
👐open sharing of knowledge, code, results. 📔non-code contributions - documentation, project management, governance, "glue" work - are all forms of effort and labour, and should be counted as contributions. ✊ 🌈people irrespective of their skin colour, gender expression, spiritual beliefs, country of origin or antecedent disciplines.
Together we do better.
What I'm learning
- Machine Learning: DeepSpeech, Tensorflow, more Python
- Data Visualisation: d3.js mostly
