Jul 31, 2018 Human Rights Comments Off on Taiwan plans automated speech recognition for court transcriptions
Taipei, An automated voice-to-text service using artificial intelligence (AI) is being planned for courtrooms in Taiwan, with a trial run expected by next year, the Judicial Yuan said Tuesday.
The speech recognition tool will be able to transcribe everything spoken in Mandarin Chinese, Hakka and Hokklo for court records, according to Wang Chin-lung (???), head of the Constitutional Court's information technology department.
Judicial Yuan Secretary-General Lu Tai-lang (???), meanwhile, said automated speech recognition technology has now evolved to the point that the spoken word can be transcribed and preserved more cost- effectively, more accurately and faster than ever before.
Wang said the technology will be first adopted in local district courts in New Taipei, Changhua County and Pingtung County, as well as the Taiwan High Court in Taipei, on a trial basis from next year, Wang said.
