A prediction by BCC research asserts that at an annual growth rate of 12.1%, the global market for voice recognition technologies of $104.4 billion in 2016 will rise to $184.9 billion in 2021.

This wave is being driven by technological advancements and deep learning, which lets the developers build systems that have outstanding accuracy for the tasks like speech recognition, language and image analysis.

Microsoft, in 2016 announced that its most recent speech-recognition system reached equivalence with human transcribers in identifying human speech.

The pace at which voice technology is advancing, it’s changing the way we interact with our devices. Read More

“AI” Of Human-Kind

“AI”… of Human-kind!

“Which Came First, The Chicken Or The Egg?”

Several years ago, you may recall a publication describing our growing dependency upon machines, devices, and “AI.” On several occasions, I’ve attempted to bring awareness to this phenomenon of artificial intelligence’s abilities in creating and/or re-creating itself… over and over again.

Eye Directive Wheelchair

This paper delivers a method to guide and control the wheelchair for disabled people based on movement of eye. This concept can be used for people with loco-motor disabilities. The proposed system involves three stages: image detection, image processing and sending of control signals wheelchair. The eye movement is detected using a head mounted camera. The images of the eye will be sent to the laptop where the images will be processed using Python software. The corresponding output signals are then sent to the motor driving circuit which control the motors.

A wheelchair is a chair with wheels, invented in the early 5th century. Read More
