Agreement Mechanics • Each CSU campus has an “AST Administrator” responsible for overseeing usage Agreement Mechanics • Each CSU campus has an “AST Administrator” responsible for overseeing usage of the agreement at their campus. • Any CSU member can get their own Caption. Sync by applying at: http: //www. automaticsync. com/caption/csu_sign_up. php • After AST receives an application, an approval from your campus Administrator is automatically requested. As soon as we receive this, the account is created and you will receive an automated notification. • Every month, the Administrator receives a summary of all usage of the Agreement for your campus. • AST does not directly bill your campus – the CO handles all invoicing from AST and “bills back” all usage to the campuses every 6 months. © 2010 Automatic Sync Technologies 4

Deciding What to Caption Many factors to consider: • School/System policy • Time / Deciding What to Caption Many factors to consider: • School/System policy • Time / Urgency • Available budget • Usage frequency • Lifespan of material • Audience (internal or external) • Primary purpose (core vs review vs supplemental) © 2010 Automatic Sync Technologies

Using Speech Recognition • Our work originated from a project funded by Dept of Using Speech Recognition • Our work originated from a project funded by Dept of Education to examine how to make captioning more efficient. • Looked at existing techniques, cost structures, and emerging technologies (including speech rec). • Concluded that significant improvements were possible using automation, but we still needed to use human stenographers for transcription task. © 2010 Automatic Sync Technologies 17

Word Error Rate: 0% Everyone loves a booming market, and most booms happen on Word Error Rate: 0% Everyone loves a booming market, and most booms happen on the back of technological change. The world's venture capitalists, having fed on the computing boom of the 1980 s, the internet boom of the 1990 s and the biotech and nanotech boomlets of the early 2000 s, are now looking around for the next one. They think they have found it: energy. Many past booms have been energy-fed: coal-fired steam power, oil-fired internal-combustion engines, the rise of electricity, even the mass tourism of the jet era. But the past few decades have been quiet on that front. Coal has been cheap. Natural gas has been cheap. The 1970 s aside, oil has been cheap. The one real novelty, nuclear power, went spectacularly off the rails. The pressure to innovate has been minimal. In the space of a couple of years, all that has changed. Oil is no longer cheap; indeed, it has never been more expensive. Moreover, there is growing concern that the supply of oil may soon peak as consumption continues to grow, known supplies run out and new reserves become harder to find. The idea of growing what you put in the tank of your car, rather than sucking it out of a hole in the ground, no longer looks like economic madness. Nor does the idea of throwing away the tank and plugging your car into an electric socket instead. © 2010 Automatic Sync Technologies
