Abstract:

Of the approximately 7,000 languages spoken today, nearly half of them are endangered. Automatic speech recognition (ASR) has the potential to mitigate endangerment, but ASR has high technical and resource requirements. A new organization dedicated to AI for language revitalization can help accelerate ASR's adoption for Indigenous language revitalization.‚Äč
