This week, the 24th Annual Conference of the International Speech Communication Association (INTERSPEECH 2023) is being held in Dublin, Ireland, representing one of the world’s most extensive conferences on research and technology of spoken language understanding and processing. Experts in speech-related research fields gather to take part in oral presentations and poster sessions and to build collaborations across the globe.

We are excited to be a Platinum Sponsor of INTERSPEECH 2023, where we will be showcasing more than 20 research publications and supporting a number of workshops and special sessions. We welcome in-person attendees to drop by the Google Research booth to meet our researchers and participate in Q&As and demonstrations of some of our latest speech technologies, which help to improve accessibility and provide convenience in communication for billions of users. In addition, online attendees are encouraged to visit our virtual booth in Topia where you can get up-to-date information on research and opportunities at Google. Visit the @GoogleAI Twitter account to find out about Google booth activities (e.g., demos and Q&A sessions). You can also learn more about the Google research being presented at INTERSPEECH 2023 below (Google affiliations in bold).
