The Dialogflow CPlus Sample Code demonstrates how to use a speech recognition API AI to include natural language processing features. With the API, developers can implement voice commands and integration with dialog scenarios.
Here is an interview with Brandon Wirtz, CTO of the very exciting text mining API startup Stremor.com. We have covered Stremor here before. Liquid Helium API is the core of all Stremor's products and it extracts information about sentence and paragraph structure, word usage, parts of speech, grammar, writing style, punctuation, and author bias. Stremor also has a new kind of search engine called Samuru based on it's language APIs.
Y Combinator classmates Alexandre Lebrun (the founder and CEO of VirtuOz) and Willy Blandin have launched Wit.ai, a startup geared at providing an API that can incorporate natural language processing and speech recognition into apps, or even hardware.
Recent advances in natural language processing and machine learning allow digital systems to engage in conversation with their users. Speech recognition is now accurate enough to make this interaction hands free. The best new technologies will be those we don’t even notice we are using.
