The Heidelberg-based IT enterprise EML European Media Laboratory GmbH will be represented at this year’s CCW trade fair (former CallCenterWorld) in Berlin from 18 February to 20 February 2014 with a stand of its own (Hall 4, Stand H13). EML offers speech technology solutions to enterprises for their customer contacts over the phone. At CCW, the speech technologists will be presenting two products:

The “EML Transcription Server” automatically transforms incoming phone calls into machine-searchable text and is speaker-independent. The “EML Speech Mining Server” classifies calls according to categories, patterns and conversational features. It scans the calls for new terms and links them with each other.
The automatic transcription allows an efficient, extended search for particular keywords. In conventional systems, every new keyword search involves reprocessing and rescanning all incoming calls that have been recorded. “Advanced Keyword Spotting finds the keywords in recognized texts as quickly as a search engine,” says Dr. Siegfried Kunzmann, EML’s head of R&D. “These keywords can also be interrelated. And the new phonetic search function means we can find keywords not yet registered in the speech recognition system, for example unusual proper names.”
Furthermore, contact center operators can adapt the speech recognition to their own application domains. “Speech recognition and domain adaptation capabilities will be available to enterprises on their own premises. This safeguards data protection,” states Dr. Kunzmann. “This is an advantage of speech technology made in Germany.”
At CCW, EML’s speech technology experts will also demonstrate a new service and the corresponding Android app for the automatic transcription of voicemails. With the EML Voicemail2Text Service, users of VoIP routers such as Fritz!Box, can receive an automatic transcription of incoming voicemails on their smartphones. 1&1 users can also access this service. The Android app is available free of charge in the Google Play Store.18.02-20.02.2014:

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
