    Core software for Reverb Robotics Inc. I am a co-founder and CTO at Reverb Robotics, developing speech recognition and natural language understanding software for the robotics industry.

    This project contains the core software, and there are separate projects that interact with this core software using Robot Operating System (ROS) and Yet Another Robotics Platform (YARP).

  • Deploying Mozilla DeepSpeech Models to AWS Lambda using Serverless
    https://lukasgrasse.medium.com/deploying-mozilla-deepspeech-models-to-aws-lambda-using-serverless-b5405ccd546b

    A blog post that outlines how to deploy machine learning models such as the Mozilla DeepSpeech model to AWS Lambda.

    This type of system works well for deploying smaller machine learning models and is easily scalable.

  • Speech Interaction to Control a Hands-free Delivery Robot for High-risk Health Care Scenarios
    https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/frobt.2021.612750/full

    A research paper that outlines robotics research my colleagues and I performed that looked into using speech interaction to control a delivery robot.

    The system demonstrated an end-to-end delivery interaction and is useful for healthcare scenarios.
