In our favorite Sci-Fi or fantasy movies or series we routinely expect voice-control of the many devices encountered in those stories. This seems natural because that’s how we most easily communicate our needs and intent (short of direct brain connections, though Elon Musk is apparently working on that). Typing on a keyboard (as I am now) feels hopelessly clunky, a relic of the 20[SUP]th[/SUP] century that I for one can’t wait to shed, as soon as voice, gesture and other natural interfaces become sufficiently trustworthy.

We’re already seeing progress in voice recognition in the form of personal assistants like Alexa, Google Assistant and Microsoft Cortana. And we’re starting to see voice and other controls moving into the car cabin.
This is a trend that can only accelerate. How about telling your alarm clock to snooze or shut off rather than groping around to find the darn button? Telling your TV what you want to watch? Controlling home devices? Responding to emails as you drive? This stuff is already available. Getting rid of your office keyboard? Maybe a little further out, but conceivable given the depth of AI now going behind voice recognition, to get beyond word and simple phrase recognition into semantic recognition.
All this starts with voice recognition; this webinar will introduce you to how you can make the future happen today by adding voice recognition to your designs. Join CEVA and Alango Technologies to learn about this forefront in Human-Machine Interfacing.
This webinar covers the current state and future possibilities of voice interfaces. It surveys the technologies that have enabled current proliferation of voice interfaces but also takes a critical look at the faults and drawbacks of current implementations. Finally, it explores the existing, emerging and future technologies that will eventually generate a revolution in the way we interact with machines.
Turning yesterday’s sci-fi into today’s reality, voice interfaces are gaining traction but still haven’t reached their peak. Enabling technologies are all around and can offer smarter and more efficient applications with more natural and intuitive interfaces. An always-on voice interface with human-like intelligence, capable of understanding intonations and inflections, responding to context and anticipating our needs and desires may be much closer than most people think.
Join CEVA experts to learn about:
· Natural Human-machine interfaces (HMI) of the future
· Far-field voice pickup and its enabling technologies
· Under the hood of smart speakers
· Human-like virtual assistants
Audio system engineers targeting natural human-machine interfaces, and marketing managers looking to voice-enable their smart home, mobile, and automotive products.
