Smarter AI Boosts Embedded Wake Word And Speech Recognition Performance

Sensory introduces significant updates to the embedded AI in its TrulyHandsfree technology to dramatically boost its performance and accuracy, while staying small and low power. Introduced in 2009, TrulyHandsfree claimed position as the first commercially successful embedded small vocabulary speech recognition system to feature an always-listening wake word. Today, TrulyHandsfree 5.0 offers an on-device voice user interface experience that is more natural and intuitive. Also, a new shallow learning approach compresses the model sizes down to run in ultra-low power and with minimal memory and MIPS.

 

One of the greatest challenges facing the IoT industry is user and data security. TrulyHandsfree 5.0 includes a layer of security in the voice interface that utilizes voice biometrics recognition and combines it with deep neural nets to authenticate users, limiting who can access it. Its embedded speaker verification technology is highly flexible, allowing users to enroll their voice and their own custom trigger or passphrase, restricting unauthorized users from accessing the voice user interface. Even if an unauthorized person learns the trigger or passphrase, the voice biometrics technology will recognize that it’s not the enrolled user speaking and not authenticate them, preventing them from accessing the device.

EMBEDDED TECHNOLOGIES EXPO & CONFERENCE

The inaugural event will take place June 25-27 in San Jose, CA!

Embedded Technologies Expo & Conference (ETC), in the largest embedded and IoT market in North America, is the ONLY event focused on what is most important to designers and implementers – education and training. Attendees will experience over 100 hours of unparalleled education and training covering embedded systems, IoT, connectivity, edge computing, AI, machine learning, and more. Co-located with Sensors Expo & Conference, attendees will have the opportunity to see hundreds of leading exhibitors and network with thousands of industry peers and innovators.
