Intelligent Speech Understanding

Intelligent speech understanding is the next stage on from natural language processing. The emphasis shifts from understanding the meaning of words spoken or typed in a natural language sentence, to analysing the inflections of a vocal natural language query or the perceived emotional tone of typed words.

A great deal more computationally expensive than natural language processing alone, intelligent speech understanding is the attempt to give artificial intelligences a human-like understanding of communication, and the ability to pick out inferred meaning rather than just relying on what was said.

Virtual Voice: Artificial Larynx
The larynx, or voicebox is the organ responsible for much of the production of soundwaves that become speech. Sound itself is generated in the larynx, and the pitch and volume of the resultant sounds are controlled there. In addition, the force the air is expelled from the lungs, adds to volume. Without a larynx, any form of speech is not possible.

Advanced Speech Encoding
Advanced Speech Encoding, or ASE is designed to reduce the number of bits required to transmit voice signals over a data stream down to the minimum possible. For virtual environments, this would be ideal, as voice traffic takes up huge amounts of packet space, radically reducing the rest of the data flow.
