Is Voice Recognition The First Step To Better A.I.?

Posted October 23, 2015

Voice recognition has become an important feature of artificial intelligence. A verbal form of communication between man and machine can only be accomplished with an accurate voice recognition software. As voice recognition software becomes “smarter”, it opens new doors and possibilities for the world of A.I. Without the hands free benefits of this unique “ear” for artificial intelligence, all interactions with a computer must be made with a keyboard, buttons, or switches; not only is this more time consuming, it is a hassle that delays the success of artificially intelligent computers.

Why Is Voice Recognition Important for Artificial Intelligence Advancement?

Voice recognition makes it possible for man to communicate with technology. This is critical when the individual is busy or unable to manually input data. As A.I. becomes more advanced, it is going to require voice recognition software that is highly accurate and lightning fast. This allows the device to quickly hear, translate, and utilize the speech that it hears.

Without highly accurate software that processes voices quickly, future conversations with A.I. devices would lag painfully. This could prove to be incredibly disastrous as potential customers decide to wait until the devices are capable of translating text into commands quickly. Currently, smart phone users may find that they have to speak to their phones slowly in short sentences or phrases in order to complete tasks verbally or to ask their phone for information. This is because the installed software is not able to translate and understand the voice without a lengthy processing time.

What Would A.I. Be Without Voice Recognition Technology?

Without the ability to recognize and translate the human voice, A.I. computers would require that the user input questions, commands, or data in a different way. For many, this would be considered an unsettling inconvenience. While artificial intelligence is also incredibly useful without voice recognition, it is not as efficient. This is especially true in the workplace. If there was no way to communicate verbally with machines, it would be virtually impossible to create products such as Siri on the iPhone or lifelike robots that can freely communicate. While the latter is still far from perfect or widely produced, it most definitely would not be possible without this partnership. Artificial intelligence might have hit a plateau in popularity long ago if voice recognition was not available.

How Will Voice Recognition and A.I. Evolve Together with Technological Advancement?

As the demand for faster, smarter, and more powerful artificially intelligent computers continues to explode, brands continue to compete against one another to provide consumers with the latest and greatest in the industry. The continued relationship and advancement shared between the two will likely eventually produce an A.I. device that is capable of hearing and translating voice almost instantly, while understanding more advanced tasks, slang, and commands. It is also possible that companion-like A.I. devices could offer company to later generations of people in the future. Smart devices are the most common and widely used form of artificial intelligence that utilizes voice commands and recognition, making them the most widely targeted market for improvements. Robotic machines are also being equipped with voice software, making them much easier to control in manufacturing applications.
