AI making speech recognition more accurate!

1- Smart speaker and smart homes

A smart speaker is a voice-operated device that interacts with users in an intelligent manner to offer assistance in many activities. People use smart speakers in a variety of ways, such as to do internet searches, set timers or reminders, and more. Smart speakers can be used to control other home functions when combined with other devices and software, such as locking doors or turning lights on and off. Few smart speakers which use artificial intelligence are listed below:

  • Google Home and Assistant: This smart speaker is created by Google that provides help to manage everyday life.

2- Digital Assistance Providers for Business

AI-based speech recognition helps in boosting productivity and enables multitasking. For instance, Alexa for business can help users by giving voice commands to start video conferences, print documents, and manage many workplace activities. Microsoft’s Cortana is another voice-activated virtual assistant that helps in finding information, schedule meetings, transcribes meeting notes, and recommends documents.

3- Natural Language Processing (NLP) services

Speech recognition abilities are a very significant aspect of NLP models. It helps in serving the ultimate objective of natural language processing to read, decode, comprehend, and derive meaning and value from large amounts of human language data. One of the most popular examples of this is voice search in Google that uses the combined power of speech recognition and NLP to surface relevant results.

4- Helping hand for specially-abled persons

Many applications have been devised that are utilizing AI-driven language recognition technology to assist people with some types of disability. Voice-activated domestic appliance (VADAS) is one such application that can make living easier for people with special abilities. Automatic speech recognition (ASR) could facilitate a promising future for specially-abled individuals.

5- Education

Voice-enabled applications and devices are increasingly leveraged in the classrooms as well as into the offices of educators. Researchers have developed speech recognition software that can convert spoken lectures into electronic format making it easy for students to take notes for later studies. It also helps lecturers to monitor and improve their teaching material.

6- Mobile device applications

Apple’s Siri is the most popular virtual assistant that can connect the users with a range of web services and offer voice-powered abilities, such as getting details of local restaurants, booking cabs, looking for movie reviews, or even transferring money between bank accounts. Artificial intelligence and machine learning allow Siri to activate or control any smart home gadgets also.

7- Healthcare

Speech recognition is being used extensively by doctors for transcribing their clinical notes. Hospitals are also applying AI-powered voice-enabled services for providing better services to patients and in administration, activities to save time and efforts. Voice-operated electronic medical records help in better productivity and fewer medical errors. Dolbey uses a transcription application to generate electronic medical records for patients.

Concluding Thoughts

With the support of artificial intelligence, the accuracy of speech recognition systems has enhanced manifolds. Speech recognition driven by AI models has the potential to revolutionize all industries and people’s lives. People can perform all the essential functions without pushing any button. Many organizations are integrating this scientific advancement in their operations to improve customer service and provide better value. AI technology that backs voice-enabled interfaces is very powerful. There are more intriguing and surprising applications of AI-powered speech recognition technology to uncover in the future that would change everything.
