Consume: Engaging Consumer Experiences
We are all familiar with speech interfaces and convenient apps, but how responsive are they to your personal tastes or to your mood swings from one day to the next? In this fascinating Tech Talk we examine a new speech interface that can recognise your emotions and react accordingly. And in a home where a speech interface serves several users, we shall see how another interface (without explicit tuition) can reliably differentiate young speakers from old, and male from female. It can also learn to recognise individual speakers. Finally, we shall see how a smart app has been the interface in the delivery of live-streamed 4k HDR broadcasts of 56 matches from the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The experiences, challenges, technologies and full analyses of results. are fascinating and will be revealed.
