New AI by Oxford Scientists Can Read Lips Better Than a Human

Lip reading is susceptible to errors and can lead to whimsical results. However, scientists at Oxford University have developed an artificial intelligence program known as the LipNet, partially funded by Google’s DeepMind, which can match the movement of the lips with 93% accuracy, according to a report published on Futurism.

This is an impressive result since experts in the field of lip reading can achieve approximately an accuracy of 52 percent. However,  researchers say that the system has to be tested in real-life situations before using on a wide scale.

AI lip-readers have massive potential and can be applied in silent dictation in public places, hearing aids, speech recognition in a clattery environment, covert conversations, silent movie processing, and biometric identification, according to the researchers.
