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: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

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...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

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...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

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.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

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.
