The Interspeech 2023 conference was held in August in Dublin, Ireland. This flagship conference in speech technology brought together international participants across many scientific disciplines including linguistics, cognitive science, and a wide variety of speech technology capabilities. CCAIS member Dr Jennifer Williams was a local organizer for the conference, Senior Area Chair for the Special Sessions, as well as co-organiser of three satellite workshops there. One special session was a panel discussion that focused on “Assessing and Mitigating AI Bias in Speech Processing Systems”. The session was well-attended and covered a range of issues from bias in data collection to evaluation of bias in prototype systems, and international approaches to AI regulation.
