In Cupertino, a new work group is preparing a more natural and precise voice recognition
When it comes to voice recognition, the rumors are not lacking. It all began in 2009, when Microsoft decided to create a working group led by Geoff Hinton, the greatest expert on the subject coming from the University of Toronto. The results were incredible, with an improvement in language comprehension accuracy of 25%Now, almost five years later, companies like Google, IBM and Microsoft – using Skype Translate – make use of neural networks for voice recognition.
And Apple, are you (maybe) wondering?
The Cupertino company is creating a new research group to carry out an innovative voice recognition technology based on neural networks, with assumptions such as that of Alex Acero (now Senior Director of the Siri group with a twenty-year history at Microsoft) and numerous former employees of Nuance, the company that developed the technology of Siri and Samsung's S-Voice .
The Siri service should therefore soon become more natural and more precise.We are waiting impatiently.
