    Port of OpenAI's Whisper model in C/C++


    I'm not sure what changed, but basically I purged ffmpeg and libsdl2-dev and the `make` in the root of the repo. Then I installed libsdl2 and ffmpeg and `make talk-llama`.

    It's quite slow on 4 core i7-8550U and 16 GB of RAM.

    basically, in the root of the repo:

    $ sudo apt purge ffmpeg

    Robust Speech Recognition via Large-Scale Weak Supervision

  • For SRT, here are some front-ends:

    Also I saw this thing called WhisperScript that looks pretty slick:

    That being said, WhisperX isn't that hard to setup. My step by step from a couple months ago:

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • ollama

    Get up and running with Llama 2, Mistral, Gemma, and other large language models.

  • distil-whisper

    Distilled variant of Whisper for speech recognition. 6x faster, 50% smaller, within 1% word error rate.

  • Is on its way to whisper.cpp?

  • cog

    Containers for machine learning

  • I'm in the same situation. I found this cog project to dockerise ML : you write just one python class and a yaml file, and it takes care of the "CUDA hell" and deps. It even creates a flask app in front of your model.

    That helps keep your system clean, but someone with big $s please rewrite pytorch to golang or rust or even nodejs / typescript.

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.
