WELCOME TO THE CIEMPIESS-UNAM PROJECT
CIEMPIESS-UNAM PROJECT aims to develop and share free and open-source tools for speech processing in the Spanish language. This will contribute to the growth and development of language technologies mainly for Mexico and Latin America.
The beginning of this project dates from 2012 when we started the creation of the CIEMPIESS Corpus whose acronym in Spanish is:
"Corpus de Investigación en Español de México del Posgrado de Ingeniería Eléctrica y Servicio Social"
But it was not until 2014 that we decided to consolidate us as a group with larger goals than the creation of one unique corpus.
This project was born at the "Speech Technologies Laboratory" of the Faculty of Engineering of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (FI-UNAM). Nowadays, It is led by its founder Dr. Carlos Daniel Hernández Mena in collaboration with Dr. Iván Vladimir Meza Ruiz who is a researcher at the Instituto de Investigación en Matemáticas Aplicadas y Sistemas (IIMAS-UNAM).
IIMAS-UNAM is the current headquarters of the project.
