Molly McHugh at Wired:

Nachman says Intel has sent some end users detailed instructions on setting up ACAT as well as how to use it, and the team is also working with some patients on testing it out. Soon, they’ll be partnering with universities on experimenting with the system. It’s clear that ACAT is for developers and the academic community, at least for now.

Probably one of the most advanced speech systems ever created is now available for the world to access and improve. I also found it interesting that Intel is making it available through Github.
