Speech Technology for More Efficiency

09.02.2011
The European Media Laboratory (EML) will present a speech technology innovation at the “CallCenterWorld” in Berlin, 22-24 February. For the first time ever, two search methods will be combined: text search and phonetic search

The Heidelberg IT enterprise European Media Laboratory GmbH (EML) will be attending the “CallCenterWorld” fair in Berlin with its own booth from 22 to 24 February 2011 (hall 5, booth A14). EML offers speech technology solutions for customer contacts over the phone. The “EML Transcription Platform” automatically converts phone calls into written text.

EML’s speech technology experts will be presenting an exciting innovation at CallCenterWorld: additional phonetic search. This feature enables users to find any term – not only by text search, but also phonetically. “This way, you can even find uncommon names that haven´t been entered into the system yet,” says Dr. Siegfried Kunzmann, EML’s head of research and development. The “EML Transcription Platform” is the first speech technology system to combine word search in texts and phonetic search.

The “EML Transcription Platform” automatically converts incoming customer calls into text and classifies them into different product and problem categories, patterns, and conversational features. Moreover, the calls can be scanned for new topics and can also be linked to each other. Automatic transcription is the basis for so-called “Advanced Keyword Spotting”, a highly efficient extended search for key terms. Conventional systems have to reprocess all recorded calls every time a new keyword search is requested. In contrast, “‘Advanced Keyword Spotting’, reverts to the search in transcribed texts. “That´s why it is as fast as any search engine,” Kunzmann says. “Also, these keywords can be linked together.”

So the “Advanced Keyword Spotting” allows to quickly determine how many callers mention a certain product name, information that is interesting for the marketing and business strategy departments of companies. The calls represent authentic consumer opinions and thus contain important information required for the flexible modification of products, services, and activities. “Our speech technology supports the employees of call centers in effective, costumer-friendly communication and facilitates strategic marketing analysis at the same time,” Kunzmann sums up.

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,...
