GDELT + Cloud Cloud Speech API

With the public announcement today of Google Cloud Speech API Beta, we are excited to announce that GDELT has been an early alpha user of the API, exploring its ability to generate realtime transcripts of foreign language video and audio broadcasts from across the world. The Speech API's ability to robustly process extremely noisy audio and its ability to transcribe speech from over 80 languages has been critical to GDELT's ever expanding reach into local sources across the world. Stay tuned for some exciting announcements in how GDELT is exploring the Speech API's ability to render realtime transcripts of global broadcast media and citizen media.
