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: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
