Tonya Sims on finding inspiration from motivational sports speeches using Python

We could also use a little motivation and what better place to find it than a rousing speech from a coach or athlete? Tonya Sims understood and sought out to extract some key insights for her old high school basketball team via a host of inspiration speeches by the likes of Serena Williams and Kobe Bryant.

Her techniques involved using Python and Deepgram’s Speech-to-Text service to transcribe a speech, summarise it, find relevant topics, judge their sentiment, and remove any profanity (since it’s for kids). The results are pretty awesome and a great use case for various NLP problems.
