I’d like to call a vote for granting commit rights to Nik Vaessen (@nikvaessen on GitHub).
Nik started contributing to Jitsi in 2016 while he was a Google Summer of Code student. He also participated as a student in GSoC 2017, and this year he serves as a mentor for Jitsi. He started by adding transcriptions to lib-jitsi-meet, and then moved the functionality to jigasi. He implemented the transcription module in jigasi, as well as two backends (using the Google Speech API and the IBM Watson API). He added subtitles to jitsi-meet to display the transcription results. He is now focused on making transcriptions more usable – with a UI to start and stop them, and better display in the client.
Nik just completed his bachelor’s degree in Data Science from Maastricht University, where his thesis was about improving speech-to-text accuracy (congrats, Nik!). He will now continue his studies in Stockholm, where he will pursue a master’s degree in Data Science.
