Voice Computing Emerging in Warehouse Automation

voice computingVoice computing has finally taken off. Voice has replaced touch screens as the next big shift in the way people interact with computers. One of the hot gifts last Christmas was Amazon Echo controlled by Alexa who can do everything from control smart appliances, answer questions, and tell jokes. Apple’s Siri handles over 2 billion commands a week and 20% of Google searches on Android platforms are input by voice.

Voice computing is significantly more reliable than in the past. Computers can recognize almost anyone’s speech dependably without training. This is due to the power of “deep learning,” an artificial-intelligence technique in which a software system is trained using millions of voice examples.
