Building an Intelligent Voice Assistant with High Quality Data

From:Datatang Date:2022-03-25

Right now, the voice assistant has become a standard on the smartphones. Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, and Samsung’s Bixby are the representatives of smartphone voice assistants.

Speech technology is one of the areas where artificial intelligence has made the fastest breakthroughs, and the error rate of speech recognition has dropped from nearly a third in 2012 to about 3% today. This technological breakthrough allows machines to “hear” and, in a sense, “understand” human thoughts and intentions.

When it comes to speech technology, many people think of speech recognition input method or speech-to-text in WeChat, etc., but in fact this is just speech recognition technology (ASR). Speech technology also includes many branchs, such as voiceprint recognition, TTS, voice cloning, speech enhancement and etc. The most promising application in future is undoubtedly the voice assistant.

The voice assistant technology achieves the user’s command through human-machine dialogue. The specific implementation is: first convert the speech into text through speech recognition, then process and understand the text content through natural language recognition (NLP), respond to the command through the background, and complete the feedback through speech synthesis. The whole process of the human-machine dialogue.

As a world’s leading AI data provider, Datatang has been adhering to the corporate vision of “Empower AI with data and change the world with intelligence” for many years. In order to help more researchers broaden the research field, enrich the research content, and accelerate the technological iteration, Datatang has developed a series of speech datasets for voice assistant with multiple languages and domains, such reading speech, natural dialogue, mixed speech and children speech.
