Expect Labs Employs Nuance Voice Technology in Anticipatory Computing Engine
Dec 17, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Expect Labs, a San Francisco-based startup focused on developing a technology platform to reinvent how we have conversations, announced plans to integrate Nuance Communications' voice technology to expand the voice recognition capabilities of their Anticipatory Computing Engine.
According to a release, the Expect Labs Anticipatory Computing Engine is a technology platform designed to analyze and understand conversations in real-time and proactively find related information. It is the underlying platform that powers MindMeld, the intelligent voice and video calling app for the iPad. Leveraging the Dragon Mobile SDK as part of Nuance's NDEV mobile developer program, Expect Labs will be able to extend the voice capabilities of MindMeld across a variety of mobile device platforms.
After two years of development, Expect Labs said it emerged from stealth mode in September and was selected from among hundreds of companies as a finalist in TechCrunch Disrupt's Startup Battlefield. Since then, Expect Labs has announced the backing of Silicon Valley investors including Google Ventures and Greylock Partners.
Expect Labs added that it is developing a new type of computing platform to analyze and model the various streams of data that are generated by the computing devices. By continuously analyzing signals such as location, voice, and online activity, the Expect Labs platform creates a real-time context model, which can be used to anticipate and filter any information that a user may need. As an initial demonstration of the capabilities of this platform, Expect Labs has built MindMeld, which is a mobile voice and video calling app that can understand conversations in real-time.
"We launched NDEV Mobile Platform to inspire mobile developers like Expect Labs to create breakthrough applications with our industry-leading speech recognition platform. MindMeld is a great example of the types of innovative applications that we're seeing across the NDEV program," said Matt Revis, Vice President and General Manager, Dragon Devices, Nuance Mobile.
"The Nuance platform is the gold standard for voice recognition technology," said Timothy Tuttle, CEO of Expect Labs. "We look forward to partnering with them to pioneer this new class of anticipatory computing applications."
