What does the future of Voice User Interfaces look like? Liopa’s Chief Technology Officer Dr Fabian Campbell-West gives a brief introduction.
Dr Campbell-West outlines how such systems are increasingly in use in a wide variety of ways.
Liopa specialists have used Voice User Interface technology and cutting-edge research to create enhanced levels of accuracy and authentication.
Liopa’s expertise in the cutting-edge field of Visual Speech Recognition, and associated areas, has created three main applications for their products and expertise:-
- Transforming Voice UI: Making everyday applications like virtual assistant, including Siri, Cortana and Alexa, in-vehicle voice control and smart home devices, ever better through improved accuracy. Liopa’s LipRead product uses visual reading and a proprietary machine learning approach for enhanced usability and quality.
- Liveness Detection: LipSecure by Liopa brings real improvements to online and mobile User Authentication by confirming that a real person is present. Anti-spoofing technology asks a user to repeat an on-screen sequence of digits and is software-based for superb cost-effectivess.
- Keyword Spotting: The power of the ability to identify occurrences of words/ phrases in video footage, bringing new capabilities to surveillance video analysis, broadcast monitoring and transcription.
While the future of Voice User Interface technology is changing very quickly, the opportunity is now available to greatly enhance the technology through the use of Liopa’s AI-based core and the ten years of research at Queen’s University Belfast Liopa have used as a foundation for their products. The company has attracted significant levels of investment through their advanced approach to ‘visemes’ (the study of lip movements) and machine learning.
The Liopa team includes proven expertise across commerce, software architectural design and development methodologies.
