LumenVox Launches Next-Generation Automatic Speech Recognition Engine with Transcription

#artificialintelligence

SAN DIEGO, August 03, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LumenVox, a leading provider of speech and voice technology, today announced its next-generation Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) engine with transcription. The new engine, built on a foundation of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep machine learning (ML), outpaces its competition in delivering the most accurate speech-enabled customer experiences. The new LumenVox ASR engine stands apart from the rest with its end-to-end Deep Neural Network (DNN) architecture and its state-of-the-art speech recognition processing capabilities. The new ASR engine not only accelerates the ability to add new languages and dialects but also provides a modern toolset to expand the language model to serve a more diverse base of users. "New demands have redefined the very meaning of Automated Speech Recognition," said Dan Miller, lead analyst at Opus Research.


Protecting user privacy with voice conversion

AIHub

With the increasing popularity of smart devices, more and more users have access to voice-based interfaces. Voice-based interfaces offer simple access to modern technologies and enable the development of new services. The building blocks behind these speech-based technologies are no longer handcrafted but learned from large sets of data. This is the case, for instance, for Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), where vast quantities of speech, in all languages, are needed and continuously collected to improve performance and adapt to new domains. This collection and exploitation of speech data raises privacy threats since speech contains private or sensitive information about the speaker (e.g., gender, emotion, speech content, etc).


Google's new Pixel phones go big on AI for better photos, faster speech recognition

Washington Post - Technology News

For now, though, Google does not want to talk too openly about what we can anticipate in the new phones including when the new Pixel phones will launch, or how much they will cost. The company also has not said anything about whether its new chips will be as fast as the ones found in smartphones you can buy right now. And while Osterloh said that security was a "key part" of the Tensor chip's design, he would not comment on whether it could help make Android more resilient against specialized spyware used by outfits like NSO.


See how the Pandemic has uplifted Voice Assistant Technologies - Envisionard

#artificialintelligence

Voice Assistant Technology had a market of its own even before the pandemic hit. Covid-19 and the fear that comes with it have just acted as a catalyst in the adaptation process and radically reshaped consumers' choices. If we go back to 2019, we see that home and voice-connected devices were moving towards becoming consumers' commerce command focus. The trend revolves around millennials who own six devices run on voice assistants except for their phones, and over 31% seem to have made purchases using these devices. With these numbers, we can deduce that the world was already moving towards a more Voice technology and AI-led market before'Global Pandemic' shook our lives.


Keep those lips sealed! Tech companies can now read them

#artificialintelligence

"Start navigation, please," said the driver in the car with noisy passengers. Within seconds, a speech recognition system identified the command and activated the navigation system simply by reading the driver's lips. In another instance, a patient in a hospital with breathing tubes placed below their vocal cords, finds it difficult to speak. The helper uses SRAVI – a mobile app that uses Liopa's lip-reading technology – to scan the patient's face while they silently mouth a sentence. The Artificial Intelligence (AI)-assisted system then displays three probable statements of what the patient may be trying to say.


Soniox Releases Knowledge Augmented Audio AI for Contextual Transcription

#artificialintelligence

Soniox already offers a very accurate speech recognition transcription engine for English language, and the company now released an audio AI solution that automatically annotates the transcribed audio with real-world entities and their contextual information, providing an augmented representation of the audio stream in real-time and low-latency. Soniox offers this novel technology in Soniox APIs, iOS app and web application.

Soniox offers this novel technology in Soniox APIs, iOS app and web application. As anyone who as tried transcription engines based on speech recognition, approximately 10% of the resulting accuracy depends on context, which is where all automatic systems fail most spectacularly (automatic closed captions provide the most hilarious and exasperating examples).

How to build your own AI-powered voice assistant

#artificialintelligence

Ever wondered how Google assistant and Siri can speak with us exactly like humans. This is the magic of Deep Learning. So without wasting time let's jump directly to the topic. The above diagram will help you to get an overview of how the process happens inside the voice assistant. First I will explain each process in-depth and in the end, I will summarise the entire process with the help of an example.


Biden's 'Antitrust Revolution' Overlooks AI--at Americans' Peril

#artificialintelligence

Despite the executive orders and congressional hearings of the "Biden antitrust revolution," the most profound anti-competitive shift is happening under policymakers' noses: the cornering of artificial intelligence and automation by a handful of tech companies. There is little doubt that the impact of AI will be widely felt. It is shaping product innovations, creating new research, discovery, and development pathways, and reinventing business models. AI is making inroads in the development of autonomous vehicles, which may eventually improve road safety, reduce urban congestion, and help drivers make better use of their time. AI recently predicted the molecular structure of almost every protein in the human body, and it helped develop and roll out a Covid vaccine in record time.
