Speech Recognition Getting Better

And they say you can't improve on perfection. Just kidding. Yes, speech recognition levels can always improve (I am looking forward to speech technology translating the Indian telemarketers that call me from English to English). We all know that speech technologies that are extremely accurate are more expensive than others that have lower levels of accuracy. You get what you pay for I guess.

Perhaps the cost of recognition will go down. I was fascinated to see this excellent TMCnet article on speech recognition and how MIT has used their labs to work with 14,000 authors to improve the accuracy of speech recognition and they're giving it away for free. Take a look at how MIT is improving the quality of speech recognition. Hope to see you at Speech-World next week.
