Speech Recognition Is Not Solved – Awni Hannun – Writing About Machine Learning
Ever since Deep Learning hit the scene in speech recognition, word error rates
have fallen dramatically. But despite articles you may have read, we still
don’t have human-level speech recognition. Speech recognizers have many failure
modes. Acknowledging these and taking steps towards solving them is critical to
progress. It’s the only way to go from ASR
which works for some people, most of the time to ASR which works for all
people, all of the time.

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA)  supports the development and testing of pragmatic strategies for assessing the quality of the delivery of psychosocial interventions (defined here as provider-delivered behavioral, cognitive, interpersonal or other psychosocial/psychotherapeutic approaches) for the treatment or prevention of mental health disorders.  Specifically, the goal is develop assessment tools and strategies that are both psychometrically rigorous (i.e., reliable, valid and strongly predictive of therapy outcomes and associated with other “gold standard” metrics of quality) and pragmatic (i.e., feasible for use in community practice settings and useful for advancing efforts at training, supervision, quality monitoring, and/or quality improvement).

The Truth About 22 Veteran Suicides A Day
There is a statistic that has been widely quoted in the veteran community that highlights an estimated 22 veterans a day are committing suicide. It is a deeply troubling statistic and has galvanized the veteran movement, both from inside the military and veteran communities, and externally, to bring about a wide range of programming nationwide.
