My name is Veronika Proskova and I work for Appen, worldwide leader in language technology with more than 20 years of experience contributing to the development of artificial intelligence and machine learning.
We work with leading tech firms to collect training data in languages from all around the globe, to enhance speech recognition programs such as Google Assistant, Siri, Cortana, Alexa, Bixby, Bing, Yahoo, etc. The purpose is to make personal assistants as effective, if not more so, in languages other than English. With this goal in mind, we have worked with expertise in 180 languages and continue to grow this portfolio daily.
We are currently working with one of our very esteemed clients to collect accurate voice samples in Finnish language. For that purpose, we require speech contributions from Finnish speakers who are keen to see their language progress in this age of advanced technology.
• You will have 500 images and you will need to describe/talk to them accordingly on an online recording app.
• The speech ideally should be recorded on Android phone/tablet into an online recording app. However, if you don’t have or can’t borrow an Android phone, the speech can be recorded on PC or laptop.
• The total time will take about 2 hours and you don’t have to complete it in one go.
• This is a paid opportunity and payments are processed via PayPal/Skrill. Please send a private message or email us to [email protected] for further details.
Only people who meet the requirements should apply.
- Be a native speaker of Finnish (18+ years old).
- Good Wi-Fi connection to upload while doing the recordings
If you or anyone in your circle of friends meet the requirements and are interested in contributing to this project, please fill out this form:
