SESAR Webinar on Automated Speech Recognition for Air Traffic Control

On 11 May 2021, 14:30 – 16:00, a SESAR webinar aims to give the state-of-play of SESAR JU research and development in the area of Automated Speech Recognition (ASR). Nowadays, instructions from air traffic control (ATC) to pilots are usually given via voice communication, but controllers need to manually type all the information into the electronic flight strip systems. Recent years has seen significant progress made with machine learning applications that improve the performance of automatic speech recognition (ASR), making it possible to convert spoken words into digital machine-readable formats with the reliability required in the safety critical ATC domain.
