Technologies Powered by Voice, Behind the Scene
We will take you behind the scene on technologies used in a personal assistance device which is powered by cloud based voice recognition and natural language understanding service that allows you to voice-enable any connected device that has a microphone and speaker. Users just need to talk to products which are voice enabled. Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) and Natural Language Understanding (NLU) engines recognize and respond to user requests. This talk will cover technologies that power such devices – Natural Language Processing, Automatic Speech Recognition, text to speech conversion, the challenges in language processing, search as a technology. In short we are going to talk about a complex problem touching several realms of software engineering.
