As our smartphones become well, smarter— there’s a need for the smartphone technology to evolve as well. Among the cooler features of most smartphones is voice and speech recognition. Some of the most recognizable speech and recognition companions include Apple’s Siri, Cluzee or Samsung’s upcoming S-Voice. While voice and speech recognition is part of the norm among smartphone users, most people aren’t concerned or interested with how the voice and speech utilities work because hey— people know it’s complicated and really just care about the utilities functioning correctly. That’s why it’s up to companies like Sensory Inc. to show the average consumer how really complicated features are made into simple products like recognizable speech and voice utilities. The underlying goal for Sensory Inc. is to simply make voice recognition smarter. The company specializes in voice recognition, speech recognition and music synthesis— and has had its technology featured in Samsung smartphones, car stereos and even in NASA’s Mars Polar Lander.
Sensory is trying to revolutionize voice and speech recognition by creating TrulyHandsfree, which looks to evolve our interactions with our smart devices. Ponder this: we have our various devices from televisions to smartphones which recognize our voices through different user profiles, but switching between profiles can be a bit of a hassle— so couldn’t changing between profiles be simpler? Sensory promises every aspect about speech and voice recognition will be simpler with TrulyHandsfree. Essentially devices that use Sensory’s TrulyHandsfree technology will be able to listen to and identify who is speaking to it– similar to how you recognize the voice of someone who is calling you. Moreover, the technology may someday make things like passwords, pattern unlock and fingerprint sensors obsolete. An example of this is a smartphone user saying “Hi Galaxy” to wake or unlock up his or her Galaxy S III smartphone as opposed to having to enter in a passcode lock key or swipe your finger. Neat isn’t it?
TrulyHandsfree is a technology that’s here already and ever-evolving. Sensory claims its technology has already set a high standard— a 95% accuracy rating which is solid, but there’s some room for improvement as you already know. It’s currently featured in Sammy’s S-Voice technology for now— but here’s hoping it will be featured in more and more smartphone in the
years months to come.
