CIEMPIESS-UNAM PROJECT aims to create and share free open-source tools for speech processing in the Spanish language in order to contribute to the growth and development of language technologies mainly for Mexico and Latin America.
CIEMPIESS is an acronym in Spanish for:
"Corpus de Investigación en Español de México del Posgrado de Ingeniería Eléctrica y Servicio Social"
The beginning of this project dates from 2012 when we started the creation of the CIEMPIESS Corpus but it was until 2014 that we decided to consolidate us as a group with larger goals than just the creation of one unique corpus.
The project was originally born at the "Speech Technologies Laboratory" belonging to the "Faculty of Engineering" of the "National Autonomous University of Mexico" (FI-UNAM). Nowadays, CIEMPIESS-UNAM PROJECT is led by its founder Dr. Carlos Daniel Hernández Mena in collaboration with Dr. Iván Vladimir Meza Ruiz, researcher at the "Instituto de Investigación en Matemáticas Aplicadas y Sistemas" (IIMAS-UNAM).
IIMAS-UNAM is the current headquarter of the project and the official website is http://www.ciempiess.org/
