What are the main Voice User Interface advantages and disadvantages? Liopa’s Chief Technology Officer Dr Fabian Campbell-West explains how factors like the speed and contactless nature of Voice User Interface use can be considered benefits of the technology.
He also briefly outlines how noise can damage the results from Voice User Interfaces.
Liopa’s specialism 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.
The consideration of Voice User Interface advantages and disadvantages by a business or organisation is now, thanks to significant research and specialist development by Liopa, a very different conversation. While end users are increasingly familiar with the technology, the opportunity to enhance accuracy and authentication is now available thanks to combining lip-reading analysis and Liopa’s AI-based core.
The Liopa team includes proven expertise across commerce, software architectural design and development methodologies.
