Prof. Katerina Mitrokotsa attending workshop on "Speech as Personal Identifiable Information"

On the 1.-5. November 2021 Prof. Katerina Mitrokotsa will attend the workshop "Speech as Personal Identifiable Information" at the Lorentz Center. Speech and Language Technology (SLT) has become an essential part of our digital society. The automatic processing of speech data (e.g., transcription of what-was-said or biometric recognition of who-spoke) is beyond the reach of end-users. Through speech and language, humans interchange all sorts of information, also personally identifiable information (PII). We seek to bridge between usability, SLT, policy & governance, and cybersecurity to build a common understanding and identify overarching interests, challenges and pathways to solve these.

For more information about the workshop, please refer to the workshop home page.
