You may not be aware of this but for years now Microsoft has been steadily working to build the world’s smartest computer brain. Now, that brain is getting a whole lot smarter.
Microsoft has announced Custom Speech Service, a suite of innovations that tackle emerging AI issues like computer vision and machine learning. Custom Speech Service is a highly adaptable voice-to-text program that is being positioned as a much more intelligent version of Siri or the Google Assistant.
Custom Speech service combines two bleeding-edge technologies to achieve this next generation capability. The first is known as CRIS, or Custom Recognition Intelligent Service.
According to Microsoft, CRIS:
“…Provides companies with the ability to deploy customized speech recognition. The developer uploads sample audio files and transcriptions, and the recognizer is customized to the specific circumstances.”
