Actionable Data Insights for Machine Learning
Improved Speech Recognition for People Who Stutter
Speech recognition systems have improved substantially in recent years, leading to widespread adoption across computing platforms. Two common forms of speech interaction are voice assistants (VAs) that listen for spoken commands and respond accordingly, and dictation systems, which act as an alternative to a keyboard by converting the user's open-ended speech to written text for messages, emails, and so on. Speech interaction is especially important for devices with smaller or no screens, such as smart speakers and smart headphones, that support speech interaction. Yet speech presents barriers for many people with communication disabilities such as stuttering, dysarthria, or aphasia.
3D Parametric Room Representation with RoomPlan
3D Scene understanding has been an active area of machine learning (ML) research for more than a decade. More recently the release of LiDAR sensor functionality in Apple iPhone and iPad has begun a new era in scene understanding for the computer vision and developer communities. Fundamental research in scene understanding combined with the advances in ML can now impact everyday experiences. A variety of methods are addressing different parts of the challenge, like depth estimation, 3D reconstruction, instance segmentation, object detection, and more. Among these problems, creating a 3D floor plan is becoming key for many applications in augmented reality, robotics, e-commerce, games, and real estate.
