Speech technology: advantages of automatic transcription

04.02.2014
At the CCW trade fair in Berlin, EML European Media Laboratory will be presenting products which provide automatic transformation of incoming phone calls and voicemails into written text. – “EML Voicemail2Text Service” for VoIP systems and as Android App – data protection: speech technology “Made in Germany”

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.

EML European Media Laboratory:
EML European Media Laboratory GmbH was established as a private IT enterprise by Klaus Tschira, a co-founder of SAP. The EML develops software and technologies in automatic speech processing. The main focus is on the automatic conversion of speech into text (transcription), which is used in telephony (speech analytics, voicemail) and mobile applications (voice texting, voice search).

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
