Project Spindle Update: Condor Cluster

Stop the presses! As part of the SPINDLE project we are running the whole University of Oxford podcast database through an automatic speech recognizer using the Phonetics Laboratory Condor cluster.

Condor is a workload management system for computing intensive jobs such as automatic speech recognition. We can submit jobs to the cluster and the cluster will process them whenever there is a node available. So far, up to 50 speech recognition jobs are running in parallel. We select one of these automatic transcriptions straight from the cluster. We extract the relevant keywords (as explained in this previous post) from the automatic transcription of the podcast Understanding Financial Control from the Building a Business series:

More results coming soon, stay tuned.
