Mon 11 Dec 8:50 a.m. PST — 9:10 a.m. PST


Hawaiian is a low-resource language from the perspective of ASR (Automatic Speech Recognition). This talk will present efforts within the Hawaiian community to make efficient and responsible use of the existing data as well as to expand ASR resources through crowdsourcing. It will also discuss current thinking from Hawaiʻi on the idea of Data Sovereignty -- which is to keep a significant proportion of the data for training ASR systems in Hawaiian kapu, or available only to people within the Hawaiian community.
