The market of speech recognition is heating up; indeed it’s the future. After tech giants Apple Inc (AAPL) and Google Inc (GOOG), it’s time for Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) to show its initiative in voice computing area. And, Microsoft is apparently doing it in style. Yesterday, Microsoft has started rolling out its Voice assistant app – an answer of Apple’s SIri and Google’s Now – to few of Windows Phone 8 users in U.S.
However, Microsoft wants to take a sizable leap in the race and the tech titan is making every move possible to make its voice assistant app much more intelligent, faster and responsive enough. Microsoft feels that these 3 aspects are going to be the key aspects to make any voice assistant app a hit or miss.
Microsoft technology, called “Deep Neural Networks”, processes speech in a way human brain works. This helps the technology to produce more accurate and ‘adoptable’ results originated via speech commands.
“The DNN is more responsive and faster especially in noise conditions and process your voice commands in fraction of seconds, claims Microsoft. We are trying to actually replicate how the brain listens to and interprets speech”, Stefan Weitz, director of Microsoft Bing, says in the demo video of the app released by Microsoft.
The new tech will make the life of users much more simpler with Search and Texts as people are always more comfortable and productive with their voice activities. We Searches and Texts over the mobile devices would be much more faster and users could executes more commands in the same time, resulting in higher productivity.
Microsoft claims that the new tech is 15% faster than previous version of Window speech recognition software due to legacy cut-down. Using the new tech, Windows users can generate more accurate and faster results using Bing search as it would be integrated only with Microsoft’s proprietary products for now.
To demo the fast processing and accuracy, Microsoft ahs released a new video showcasing the compassion between its previous and latest version of app. The video after this break;
