I talked about what is OpenAI whisper and some of it’s amazing feature. I highlighted the importance of fine-tuning Whisper in low-resource language like Malayalam which is able to get almost 90% accuracy compared to -10% accuracy of OpenAI whisper model weights. The results where calculated with a new github project called malayalam_asr_benchmarking created by me.
