The Heidelberg IT enterprise EML European Media Laboratory will be represented at this year’s CallCenterWorld in Berlin (28 February to 1 March 2012) with a stand of its own (Hall 5, Stand A8).
EML offers enterprises speech technology solutions for their customer contacts over the phone. The “EML Transcription Platform” provides automatic transformation of incoming phone calls into written text, analysis of the calls, and the tuning of the speech recognition performance to customer-specific application domains.
At CallCenterWorld, EML’s speech technology experts will be demonstrating a novelty: “domain adaptation.” It enables users to adapt speech recognition to their own application domains at short notice and without assistance. For instance, an enterprise launching a new product can quickly and effectively insert product descriptions or new keywords into the language model.
Another unique selling point that EML has to offer is that speech recognition and domain adaptation capabilities will be available to enterprises on their own premises. “That safeguards data protection issues,” says Dr. Siegfried Kunzmann, head of research and development.
Incoming phone calls are automatically transformed into written text and classified in accordance with call-center-specific product or problem categories, patterns or conversational features. In addition, the calls are scanned for new terms and linked up with one another accordingly. The automatic transcription now boasts “advanced keyword spotting,” an extension of the search function 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. Kunzmann. “And the new phonetic search function means we can find keywords not yet registered in the speech recognition system, for example unusual proper names.”

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
