Common Voice’s Kiswahili Community Event this August 27th

Cross-Posting from Mozilla Foundation Website

On August 27, Mozilla is bringing together the Kiswahili Common Voice community. Join us to collaborate and make Kiswahili voice technology more open and inclusive.

This 90-minute Zoom session is a chance for interested tech hubs, communities, and partners to learn more about Common Voice, Mozilla’s open-source initiative to make voice technology more inclusive. Contributors donate speech data — like Kiswahili — to a public dataset, which anyone can then use to train voice-enabled technology.

At the August 27 session, Mozilla’s Common Voice team will introduce the project, with a special focus on our Kiswahili work. The team will also showcase how to contribute and validate Kiswahili voice data; detail the importance of creating more diverse AI data sets; and present example use cases of this voice data in action.
