Sensory Brings Chatbot and Avatar Technology to Consumer Devices and Apps

New additions to TrulyNatural speech recognition allows animated chatbots with no cloud connection

Santa Clara, Calif., – June 7, 2017Sensory, the leader in on device AI technology is now bringing chatbots to consumer electronics through new additions to its TrulyNatural line of embedded natural language speech recognition engines. Sensory’s embedded artificial intelligence line-up includes a variety of neural net deep learning approaches such as wake word technology for Alexa and other leading cloud engines, natural language voice interfaces, biometrics, and computer vision.

Sensory’s embedded AI technology lineup includes:

  • TrulyHandsfree – wake words and small vocabulary low power solutions
  • TrulySecure – biometric authentication with face and/or voice
  • TrulyNatural – an embedded natural language large vocabulary speech recognizer

TrulyNatural has been augmented to include both a chatbot engine which can be used for dialog management and scripting, and a new talking avatar technology to enable accurate avatar movements including lip-synchronization. TrulyNatural can now enable consumer products and applications to have a voice driven interface that offers a more conversational style and the technology can further take advantage of embedded text-to-speech to drive an avatar interface.

Sensory’s avatar interface utilizes a patented non-linear morphing technology to allow facial and mouth movements between Visemes (visual representations of phonemes) to look extremely natural and realistic, even though they are completely automated.

“Sensory is always working towards the future of consumer interfaces by utilizing AI techniques that can reside on device and run on local processors for speed, portability, and flexibility. We now have the ability to put together a plethora of technologies including text-to-speech, natural language understanding, chatbot, and avatars to create a totally new kind of visual voice interface on consumer products and apps.” said Todd Mozer, founder and CEO of Sensory.
