  • About: In much of the developing world, access to the internet via personal computers remains quite low, while mobile phone use is widespread. Unlike developed countries, in which individuals rely on the personal computers for access to information and self-service transactions, in the developing world, mobile phones are the primary means of communication and data access. Join us for a discussion of how speech technologies on mobile phones can be used to improve the lives of millions of people in developing countries.
