New lip-reading technology developed at the University of East Anglia could help in solving crimes and provide communication assistance for people with hearing and speech impairments. The visual speech recognition technology, created by Helen L. Bear, PhD, and Prof Richard Harvey of UEA’s School of Computing Sciences, can be applied “any place where the audio isn’t good enough to determine what people are saying,” Bear said. Those include criminal investigations, entertainment, and especially where are there are high levels of noise, such as in cars or aircraft cockpits, she said.
Wikipedia announced on Thursday that it is collaborating with researchers from Sweden's KTH Royal Institute of Technology to develop an open, crowdsourced speech engine that will make the online encyclopedia more accessible to people with reading or visual impairments. Wikipedia estimates that 25 percent of its user base -- approximately 125 million people monthly -- will benefit from the new service.

What if a machine could automatically translate speech and then read it out loud for us, in the language we ask it to? This was the project presented by Dmitry Shishkin, digital editor at the BBC World Service, at the news:rewired ‘video focus’ conference in London on 16 March. This new tool starts by using Google’s automated translations to provide subtitles to any given video. Then, an editor reviews the automated translation, correcting any possible mistakes, and chooses an artificial voice, that reads the text out loud for the viewers.
No artificial mind will ever be humanlike unless it imitates not just feeling but the whole spectrum. Consider how your mind changes as you slide down-spectrum—gradually mixing together feeling and logical analysis, like a painter mixing ultramarine blue into cool red, producing reds, red-violets, purples, purple-blues. The human mind is this whole range of shades, not just rationality, nor rationality plus a side-order of emotion, nor the definitive list of five or six kinds of mental state some textbooks give. The range is infinite, but the formula for creating this infinity is simple.
