Alexa's Accent Recognition Touches Privacy Nerve

AT THE BEGINNING of October, Amazon issued a patent that would allow its virtual assistant Alexa to decipher a user’s physical characteristics and emotional state based on their voice. Characteristics, or “voice features,” like language accent, ethnic origin, emotion, gender, age, and background noise would be immediately extracted and tagged to the user’s data file to help deliver more targeted advertising. The algorithm would also consider a customer’s physical location — based on their IP address, primary shipping address, and browser settings — to help determine their accent. Should Amazon’s patent become a reality, or if accent detection is already possible, it would introduce questions of surveillance and privacy violations, as well as possible discriminatory advertising, experts said.

#ASR + Data 'Creation' to Preserve the Seneca Language

#ASR + Data 'Creation' to Preserve the Seneca Language | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

"Under the hood, it is data. With many Native languages, you don't have that volume of data," Jimerson said, explaining that some languages, while spoken, may not have as many formal linguistic tools—dictionaries, grammatical materials or extensive classes for non-native speakers, similar to those for Spanish or Chinese. "One of the most expensive and time-consuming processes of documenting language is collecting and transcribing it. We are looking at taking deep networks and maybe changing the architecture, making some synthetic data to create more data, but how do you make this work in deep learning? How do you augment data you already have?"
