Launching NB-Whisper

February 15 @ 10:00 - 14:30

Our partner, the National Library, invites you to a “launch seminar” for their newest speech-to-text model for Norwegian.

They have invited the police, Schibsted, and TV2 to share how they use speech-to-text. They have been part of their beta group and will discuss the model’s handling of Norwegian in various contexts.

After lunch, the seminar will become more technically oriented, especially suitable for those interested in deeper insights into the technical and linguistic aspects related to the development of such AI models.

The event is open to all and will be streamed on nb.no. To secure your spot, get your free ticket here!
