The aim of this partnership is to enhance video conferencing by combining Augmented Reality, Automatic Speech Recognition, Natural Language Processing and GPU-accelerated cloud processing to provide a more natural communication with each meeting participant's avatar superimposed into the user's real-world view.
Intelligent Voice is a leading technology company with an innovative suite of products which are paving the way in speech to text capabilities. A London based company with offices in New York and San Francisco, Intelligent Voice is recognised worldwide for its disruptive view in the world of speech analysis. The company supplies speech recognition and other smart data systems to the financial, legal and security sectors involved in risk management and compliance. Intelligent Voice's clients include government agencies, banks, and insurers all involved in risk management.
The company has strong capabilities in Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Graphics Processing Unit (GPU)-acceleration of voice transcription but currently has no experience with many of the research topics associated with this project, in particular:
- Augmented Reality and 3D tele-immersion
- Video processing and motion detection
- Animation and personalisation of avatars
- Audio adaptation and reconstruction
Intelligent Voice sees Augmented Reality as being key to the next innovation in video conferencing. The University of East London team has the expertise that Intelligent Voice needs to pursue this innovative idea.
