Caleb Moses is moving back to Auckland next week, and taking Dragonfly with him.

“Ed took me on knowing that I wanted to move north in the near future, which I really appreciated. It’s not just a good move for me personally but it’s also an opportunity for Dragonfly to have a presence in Auckland and make new connections there,” he says.

Caleb will be based at Te Pūnaha Matatini three days a week, initially supervising the two summer interns, Max Bunting and William Asiata, who spent the summer at Dragonfly last year. The three will continue work on the Te Hiku Media Kōrero Māori project – applying machine learning to transcribing spoken Māori.

“We appreciate Te Punaha’s hospitality very much and look forward to exchanging ideas and expertise with them.”

Before he goes, Caleb will give at talk at the Linguistic Society of New Zealand’s conference in Wellington on 15 November called, ‘How to train your indigenous language speech recognition engine.’
