Last year we announced a major milestone in English conversational speech recognition: a system that achieved an 8% word error rate (WER) on a very popular benchmark called the Switchboard database. The IBM Watson team composed of Tom Sercu, Steven Rennie, Jeff Kuo and myself are pleased to report a new record performance of 6.9% WER on the same task.
