Show HN: Track and Compare Audio Transcription with Whisper × W&B (wandb.ai)
5 points by haensi 9 months ago | hide | past | favorite
Hi HN,

based on Whisper [0] and Whisper.cpp [1], I created a comparison of transcription performance (quantitative metrics such as relative speed).

You can find the code in the Colab [2] and a blog post [3] containing a how-to guide and visualizations.

In the future, I'd love to add WER evaluation and visualizations based on ground-truth data.

Bonus: Normally you would log these results from Python to Weights & Biases, but there is a way to log even from C++ / the cli by using `subprocess`

Would love to know what you think of this comparison and what features / attributes you would like to see in a more sophisticated comparison.
