Apollo 11 Challenge Overview

The 2020 Fearless Steps initiative (Phase 2) by the University of Texas Center for Robust Speech Systems led to the digitization of 19,000 hours of raw analog audio data from the Apollo 11 mission and an “out of this world” challenge for organizations to unscramble the data. Four members from the Behavox Voice Team duly accepted the challenge, and used it as a valuable opportunity to stress-test our speech recognition technology, which is vital in identifying suspicious conversations in our compliance and conduct solutions.
