People’s ability to use their chosen language is critical for human dignity and the general wellbeing of society.

Join Kathy Reid for an examination of speech recognition technology through a cybernetic lens. A communication tool that translates spoken words into text using voice commands instead of typing, speech recognition technology is increasingly serving diverse users in complex settings.
This event is free to attend but bookings are essential.
For those unable to make it to Canberra for the panel discussion, it will be livestreamed online via the Library's Facebook page. No bookings are required to watch the online stream.
Cybernetic thinking for a new world is presented by the ANU School of Cybernetics in partnership with the National Library of Australia.
