About the Meetup

We are excited to announce our new monthly N3XTCODER Meetup Series. Every 1st Tuesday of the month we will invite amazing Entrepreneurs, Scientist and Changemakers using latest technologies to create social impact at scale! Stay tuned and join us for free drinks and snacks…thanks to @Spielfeld

After our successful Machine Learning Hackathon in January and two intense N3XTCODER Product Lab sessions with the winner teams, we invite you to catch up on the latest achievements, efforts and learnings in the field of natural language and accent recognition.

The Goethe-Institut has a large base of language students all over the world. Students are looking for individual feedback and coaching to train pronunciation, accent and vocabulary while learning to speak German.

Unfortunately current artificial language processing does not perform well for German language learners. Siri, Echo, Google Home, Watson, Cortana – there’s nothing out there that will correct your German.

During the Hackathon we developed strategies and creative ideas to acquire the data needed to train a new AI of a future personal language tutor for the Goethe-Institut Students.

This meetup is designed to give you the opportunity to get in touch with us and to grow our community of tech experts dedicated to solve real social problems.
