Amazon today announced the open source release of its Alexa Auto SDK, which lets automakers integrate its Alexa service into their vehicles. Voice-based services like Amazon Alexa are a perfect fit for automobiles, as consumers are in many cases required by law to use hands-free devices.
AISpeech is the API behind a Chinese language and pronunciation learning website, AIChinese. You may know that Chinese is a tonal language. Where tones and inflection are used in English to convey emotion or differentiate between a declarative statement and a question, in tonal languages like Chinese, different tones on the same syllable can be altogether different words. The AISpeech API gives you access to a language processing engine which is capable of detecting spoken words and evaluating if the appropriate tone is used.
