The Angus Word Spotting (Version 2) Python SDK by Angus.ai provides microphone services to spot specified words (or group of words) in a complex speech input. Version 2 currently supports English (US, GB), German, Spanish (ES), French, and Italian. The Angus.ai API makes it easy for developers to give senses to machines and embraces AI technologies for text, voice, sound, image, video, text, laser, sonar, and accelerometers.
Voice is considered the next great user interface, but the challenge is finding a way to cost effectively enable its use. At the APIcon 2014 conference this week, Alex Lebrun, co-founder and CEO of Wit.AI, showed how developers can make use of an API to add voice-recognition capabilities to their applications.
Amazon Web Services announced an IoT Platform at scale with Message Broker for handling messages from devices, Rules Engine, Integration with AWS, Device SDK and Starter Kits. For developers already invested in the AWS ecosystem, this is a gateway to building Internet of Things applications.
Last September, OneTok announced that its API moved out of beta and was publicly available for developers to integrate speech recognition functionality into any app. Since then, OneTok has overhauled the platform, refined its focus, and readied itself to better meet developer needs. Today, the platform focuses on audio transport and processing. OneTok has captured its core functionality in an SDK that developers can embed in existing apps or websites.
