Speech to Text and Object based audio by BBC R&D at IBC 2017

Speech to Text and Object based audio by BBC R&D at IBC 2017 | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Speech to Text
Cheaper, better transcription built with our own content for the BBC's problems

Speech-to-text has recently moved from the lab to the newsroom as a production-ready technology for journalists inside the BBC and we will be showcasing some of the many uses that speech-to-text can be put to in the broadcasting environment. These include helping journalists rapidly find footage in large archives, helping them quickly subtitle ‘water cooler’ content so it can be shared more widely on social media and helping them quickly transcribe interviews.

We will also be able to explain how broadcasters with large subtitle archives can achieve similar results and the work the BBC has done to help steer academic research in this area towards the sort of real-world problems that broadcasters face.

Object-Based Audio
ORPHEUS Collaborative Project
ORPHEUS is a European collaborative project that aims to create an end-to-end object-based audio broadcast system. Using the BBC’s IP Studio platform, we are developing the tools, formats and protocols required to produce and deliver object-based content. This work will inform the design of future broadcast systems and our work on emerging standards.

On show at IBC will be The Mermaid’s Tears, our interactive audio drama where you can follow any one of three characters through the story and which we produced using our system. It was broadcast live, making it the first live interactive object-based broadcast. To produce this experience we developed a novel audio control interface to generate the ADM metadata that describes the mix for each character. Visit our stand to experience the drama and learn more about how we created it.

Roku is Hiring Voice Experts, but What Does That Mean? - Voicebot

Roku is Hiring Voice Experts, but What Does That Mean? - Voicebot | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
had a report last week that suggested recent hiring at Roku pointed toward a new smart speaker from the over the top (OTT) streaming service company.

Roku recently posted multiple job offers audio-centric roles including a “Sr. Software Engineer, Audio” as well as a “Sr. Software Engineer, New Products, Audio (Expert).”

At the same time, the company has been looking to hire multiple team members to build out its voice control capabilities, including a job offer for a “Sr. Interaction Designer, Voice,” as well as a “Voice User Interface Designer” who is supposed to become Roku’s “expert on all things voice related.”
But, that’s not all. Current LinkedIn profiles for Roku employees Tyler Bell (i.e. natural language understanding and automated speech recognition) and Hari Ramakrishnan (i.e. far-field voice and audio engineering) both list voice technologies as among their current responsibilities. So, is this a sign that Roku is about to launch a smart speaker?

There have been rumors for weeks about Google nearing the release of a smaller version of the Google Home. DroidLife just posted what it claims is the upcoming Google Home Mini.

If true, the design speaks the same language of the Google Home. The little puck uses the same cloth covering found on larger version. Gone are the multi-colored lights, replaced by four soft-white lights on top of the device. And just like the Google Home, Google Assistant is built-in, ready to do its owner’s bidding.

Audio company Bose, maker of market-leading noise canceling headphones, has upgraded its flagship headset with optimization of Google Assistant, the intelligence built into Google Home smart speakers. Google Home is currently the chief competitor to Amazon Alexa in the still-new voice-activated speaker niche. This integration, which connects the headphone-wearing user with an Android device via voice activation, is significant because it implies that — as with smartphones — the ecosystem is the product.

Speech-to-Text by BBC R&D [video]

Speech-to-Text by BBC R&D [video] | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Using our subtitle archive to create more accurate speech-to-text

Improvements in machine learning have allowed us to train our own speech-to-text system. It’s found a myriad of uses from archive search to improving social media shareability.

 

Speech-to-text is a process for automatically converting spoken audio to text. It has recently moved from the lab to the newsroom as a useful new tool for broadcasters and journalists. Breakthroughs in automatic analysis and improvements in affordability mean that running it at scale over hundreds of thousands of hours of content is now feasible. Increases in accuracy mean that users will have a realistic chance of finding what they want in minutes rather than hours, especially in genres such as news or factual content.

Why it matters

The BBC has one of the largest archives of broadcast material in the world, but only a fraction of it is truly searchable. We know there are hidden gems throughout the hundreds of thousands of hours of TV and Radio we’ve digitised, but there’s currently no easy way to find them. Speech-to-text is the first step in this process, as it allows a semi-accurate transcript of what’s said to be made searchable.

The future of news is humans talking to machines | Niemanlab [Prepa #VoiceUI]

The future of news is humans talking to machines | Niemanlab [Prepa #VoiceUI] | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

That’s the argument of the BBC’s Trushar Barot, who believes voice AI is the biggest technology revolution that the news industry is missing — and that it’s not too late to do something about it.
By TRUSHAR BAROT Sept. 18, 2017, 10 a.m.
This year, the iPhone turned 10. Its launch heralded a new era in audience behavior that fundamentally changed how news organizations would think about how their work is discovered, distributed and consumed.

This summer, as a Knight Visiting Nieman Fellow at Harvard, I’ve been looking at another technology I think could lead to a similar step change in how publishers relate to their audiences: AI-driven voice interfaces, such as Amazon’s Alexa, Google’s Home and Assistant, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Apple’s upcoming HomePod. The more I’ve spoken to the editorial and technical leads building on these platforms in different news organizations, as well as the tech companies developing them, the more I’ve come to this view: This is potentially bigger than the impact of the iPhone. In fact, I’d describe these smart speakers and the associated AI and machine learning that they’ll interface with as the huge burning platform the news industry doesn’t even know it’s standing on.

This wasn’t how I planned to open this piece even a week before my Nieman fellowship ended. But as I tied together the research I’d done with the conversations I’d had with people across the industry, something became clear: As an industry, we’re far behind the thinking of the technology companies investing heavily in AI and machine learning. Over the past year, the CEOs of Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and other global tech giants have all said, in different ways, that they now run “AI-first” companies. I can’t remember a single senior news exec ever mentioning AI and machine learning at any industry keynote address over the same period.

Of course, that’s not necessarily surprising. “We’re not technology companies” is a refrain I’ve heard a lot. And there are plenty of other important issues to occupy industry minds: the rise of fake news, continued uncertainty in digital advertising, new tech such as VR and AR, and the ongoing conundrum of responding to the latest strategic moves of Facebook.

But as a result of all these issues, AI is largely being missed as an industry priority; to switch analogies, it feels like we’re the frog being slowly boiled alive, not perceiving the danger to itself until it’s too late to jump out.

“In all the speeches and presentations I’ve made, I’ve been shouting about voice AI until I’m blue in the face. I don’t know to what extent any of the leaders in the news industry are listening,” futurist and author Amy Webb told me.

La nouvelle version de Safari, le navigateur de la firme à la pomme, empêche de suivre les internautes à la trace. Dans sa version 11, qui sera disponible sur smartphone et Mac, Safari inclura en effet par défaut une fonction baptisée « Intelligent Tracking Prevention ». Pour l'écosystème de la pub numérique, qui vit des données et s'inquiète déjà du projet de directive européenne ePrivacy qui aurait les mêmes conséquences, c'est une catastrophe. D'autant que Safari n'a beau représenter que 15 % du marché des navigateurs (contre 55 % pour Google Chrome), ses utilisateurs achètent davantage en ligne et sont donc très intéressants pour les annonceurs. L'industrie de la publicité estime qu'elle avait commencé à s'autodiscipliner pour limiter les pratiques intrusives poussant les internautes à adopter des adblockers.
