Speech technology for additional communication channels

14.02.2013
At the CCW trade fair in Berlin, EML European Media Laboratory will be presenting products which provide automatic transformation of incoming phone calls and voice messages into written text. The EML Voice Messaging App for Android smartphones opens new channels such as text messages, Twitter or Facebook.

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 25 February to 28 February 2013 with a stand of its own (Hall 4, Stand H11A). EML offers speech technology solutions to enterprises for their customer contacts over the phone.

At CCW, the EML 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 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. 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.

At CCW, EML’s speech technology experts will also demonstrate a new app for smartphones. The mobile all-rounder makes it possible to communicate with a contact center through other channels than the telephone and enables users to submit their queries by text messaging, e-mail, via Twitter or Facebook etc. The EML Voice Messaging app demonstrates the opportunities speech recognition holds for multi-channel communication. “For instance, you can quickly and efficiently communicate with the Facebook page of a particular company by simply speaking instead of typing,” comments Dr. Kunzmann. The Android app is available in Google Play Store free of charge. Link: http://www.emlvoice.eml-d.de

About EML
EML European Media Laboratory GmbH was established by Klaus Tschira, a co-founder of SAP. Research and development at EML revolves around automatic speech processing and human-machine interaction. Key areas are speech-to-text applications, as used in the telephone sector and in contact centers (speech analytics, voice mail, voice messaging), and the transcription of media data.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
