It has been reported that both Intel and Samsung are going to invest in a speech analysis company that is known as Expect Labs, in addition to Telefónica Digital, where Expect Labs’ technology is used to analyze and understand conversations in real-time, in addition to finding out related information. It cannot be denied that speech recognition is gaining more and more prominence among users of smartphones, tablets and computers, in addition to TVs, of course. Expect Labs also claim that the future might see connected devices that “will know who we are, understand what we say, and be far more capable of interpreting our intentions and anticipating our needs.”
One of Expect Labs’ already developed apps would be MindMeld, which is capable of analyzing a conversation, where it would then display related relevant pictures, videos and articles automatically. Right now, MindMeld is available over at Apple’s iPad, and is on its way to Android and other platforms sometime down the road. It would be interesting to see how the “injection” of dough would spur Expect Labs to greater heights.
