Sensory has announced the first full launch of its large built-in vocabulary voice recognition platform, TrulyNatural, to help companies create products with natural language interaction without compromising customer privacy or assuming the high memory cost of technologies based in open source.
According to the announcement, TrulyNatural is the product of extensive development and five years of beta testing. A survey published by PCMag.com in March he indicated that privacy is the main concern related to smart home devices for the largest number of consumers, and that was before the controversy arose with reports that Amazon employees Listen to Alexa's recordings. as part of the process of forming algorithms of the company. TrulyNatural solves privacy issues by processing voice data on the device and never storing voice requests.
"To take advantage of cloud-based natural language processing benefits, companies have been forced to risk customer privacy by letting listening devices always share voice data with recognition service providers. ", says the CEO of Sensory, Todd Mozer. "TrulyNatural does not require any data to leave the device and eliminates the privacy risks associated with sending voice data to the cloud, and as an additional benefit, allows product manufacturers to have the relationship and customer experience."

In a natural language environment with extensive vocabulary, TrulyNatural can be as small as 10 MB, while for applications such as virtual assistants and call center chatbots it can be scaled to support a wider vocabulary. TrulyNatural's categorization method also does not require scripted grammars. TrulyNatural can be implemented for household appliances, vehicle information and entertainment systems, decoders,
Because TrulyNatural processes speech on the edge, instead of in the cloud, it does not require an Internet connection. Product manufacturers can also combine TrulyNatural with sensory products such as TrulyHandsfree without wake-up words for personalized or branded user experiences, or TrulySecure for biometric voice access control.
"Consumers' concerns about security and privacy have been growing over time and Sensory's TrulyNatural platform addresses this problem by incorporating voice recognition in natural language locally on the device," says Dennis Goldenson, Director of Research, Intelligence Artificial and Machine Learning with SAR Insight and Consulting. "As a result, TrulyNatural improves response time and offers a high-performance, more secure and reliable solution. Product manufacturers will appreciate TrulyNatural's voice engine technology because it allows them to implement a highly valued voice experience through their own brand and prevent clients from surrendering to a potential competitor.
