In today’s attention-driven news economy, rapid changes of topics and events go hand in hand with rapid changes of vocabulary and of language use. ASR systems aimed at transcribing  contents pertaining to this fluid media landscape need to keep upto-date in a continuous and dynamic manner. Static models, potentially created a long time ago, are hopelessly outdated within a short period of time. The frequent changes in vocabulary and wording need to be reflected in the models employed for optimal performance of transcription if one does not want to risk falling behind.
