Otter.ai App Can Transcribe Meeting Speech in Real Time

Otter.ai App Can Transcribe Meeting Speech in Real Time | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

"Our technology is quite different," said Liang, in his interview with ZDNet. "We call it 'Ambient Voice Intelligence' and we use the word ambient to indicate that this is working in the background... Your brain can only remember 10-20% of the information [from a meeting]... So we thought we can help people capture that information and then search for it really fast."
The search is the best feature. Once the recording is finished, the app's machine learning automatically creates about 10 keywords so that you know what the meeting was about. And you can start searching the full text right away. Also useful is that once you hone in on a keyword, you can hit the play button to listen to the section of the audio where it occurred.

@Attivio and Thomson Reuters Improve Search Semantics for Fintech | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

By integrating Thomson Reuters Intelligent Tagging into its cognitive search platform, Attivio can now offer its financial services customers better answers to their queries due to a deeper understanding of financial terms and abbreviations. This is necessary as a number of Attivio customers use the solution as a key component of their risk and compliance, equity research, and investment analytics initiatives. Attivio is thus in a better position to train machine learning models to understand the specific terms and language used in the financial services industry, said Attivio CEO Stephen Baker.  For companies operating in this sphere, he noted, the need to find the right information in real time is increasingly important.

@Sogou Search Engine Working on Lip-reading and Divorce advice

@Sogou Search Engine Working on Lip-reading and Divorce advice | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

Lip reading is among the technologies Sogou unveiled at the Wuzhen World Internet Conference. When speakers are directly facing the camera, the system can “read” inaudible speech by analysing lip movements. The technology puts the firm on par with Google’s DeepMind artificial intelligence division.
Sogou is also upgrading its simultaneous interpretation system to add “emotion” to the translated voice output, Wang disclosed.
Sougou’s research on language processing is supported by the largest number of Chinese character inputs and include a daily average of more than 300 million voice entries created by its users, according to the Beijing-based company.

LT-Innovate's insight:

The power of a very large, relatively homogenous population of single-language speakers. Available Chinese-language data may be on a par if not greater than that for very multi-dialectal English.
