Just like Claude 2 AI was released recently, there is a new AI tool in town, and it’s an expert in understanding everything you’re saying: Conformer-2 AI is here.

Developed by Assembly.AI, Conformer-2 builds on its first version, Conformer-1, with improved speed, performance, and accuracy. According to the company, Conformer-2 achieves a 31.7% improvement in alphanumerics, a 6.8% improvement in Proper Noun Error Rate, and a 12.0% improvement in robustness to noise, compared to its first version.

The improvements were made possible due to the fact that the model was trained on 1.1M hours of English audio data. Compared to the first model, Conformer-2 AI trained on 170% of the data the first version trained on.

Plus, Conformer-2 AI is 53.7%. faster at processing data than its previous version. So if you’re looking for an AI model to transcribe your texts as accurately as possible, this AI model might just be it. There are other options if you prefer so, too.
