We are a local startup trying to develop science fiction ideas into everyday technology. We think voice interface is the future of interfaces and voice will become the mainstay interface of many devices as it is more natural and convenient as an interface. My company is developing a voice interface platform for use to work with applications and services. We are looking to find new technology in the realm of Natural Language Processing to work with. We want to bring in different type of related technology and develop applications which are practical and useful to users. It may be put to use in noisy environments and have to work in conjunction with microphone array technologies.
We want to work with a company with Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) capabilities which can help us with speedy speech to text capabilities for near field detection. We are looking at Mandarin (Chinese) and English, with the ability to compensate for accents. The service should be on the server with the ability to make an API call on it. This service should be able to be deployed to the geographical location of the customers.
We are not interested in voice recognition which is only recognition of simple words based on acoustic signature.
