The Saxony Police Administration Office (Polizeiverwaltungsamt Sachsen) and Appsfactory present the Saxony Automatic Speech Recognition System (ASEL) at the GPEC 2022

Leipzig, 23 May 2022 – Appsfactory and the Saxony Police Administration Office will be
represented at the GPEC (General Police Equipment Exhibition & Conference®) in Frankfurt
am Main from 31 May to 2 June 2022. Among other things, the two innovation partners will
present ASEL – an intelligent speech recognition system.

The intelligent speech recognition system ASEL (Automatic Speech Recognition Solution),
which is used for all official transcription tasks, is the result of a cooperation between the
Saxony Police Administration Office and Appsfactory. This solution will be presented live to
participants at the GPEC. AI-based, it is fully integrated within the secure (hardened) IT
landscape of the Saxony Police Administration Office and complies with the standards of the
German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).

“As Europe’s largest non-public specialised trade fair for security authorities, GPEC is the
ideal place for Appsfactory to make contact with current decision-makers in public
administration,” explains Dr Rolf Kluge, CTO of Appsfactory. “ASEL, which we developed
shoulder to shoulder with the Saxony Police Administration Office, is one of our flagship
projects. The system contains forward-looking technology that will make official work much
more efficient – hopefully soon throughout Germany as well. It is particularly important for us
to underscore the fact that innovation and extremely high data protection requirements can
easily go hand in hand,” continues Dr Kluge.

About ASEL

ASEL is an intelligent speech recognition system developed by the Saxony Police
Administration Office and the full-service digital agency Appsfactory. This solution is
currently used for transcribing audiovisual recordings. ASEL recognises what is being said,
distinguishes between speakers and immediately creates a complete, comprehensive and
editable transcript. The secure cloud ensures the system is both efficient and 100 per cent
data protection-compliant. This leaves civil servants more time for their actual official duties,
which results in a significant reduction in workload and an acceleration of processes and
procedures.
