Natural Language Processing
NLP systems continue to emerge as a tool with promise for distribution inspectors and maintenance personnel. Applications built using these systems are dependent on the ability to accurately detect and transcribe spoken words, which may contain industry jargon, colloquial terminology, and unique phrases for distribution equipment. This research aims to develop a dictionary of terms that could be incorporated into NLP systems to improve performance across distribution applications. Moving forward, the work is expected to progress to more advanced implementations that support distribution asset analytics use cases.
