  • VoiceGenie could change the way we interact with the devices already firmly embedded in our lives -- and it could make voice assistants just as integral.

    CNet
  • Amazon is relying on voice models that are key components of Sensory’s speech recognition suite.

    Business Intelligence
  • Sensory is enabling what it calls “wakeup words” — that is, terms and phrases that trigger the always-on listening that is a hallmark of assistants like Google Now and Siri — on devices that integrate Amazon’s Alexa.

    Digital Trends
  • Sensory, which focuses on voice recognition, teams up with Alexa's creators to make it easier for third-party developers to create voice-activated devices.

    CNET

    Geoffrey Fowler, Wall Street Journal
  • …it works well even at a distance. You just shout "okay Garmin," the lights on the camera will blink, and then you can tell it to do things like start or stop recording, or take a photo.

    The Verge
  • Huawei also created this cool feature to help you find your phone more quickly. It’s called voice wake up, and you can ask your phone “Where are you?” or some other phrase, and your phone will respond, saying, “I’m here,” and play music until you find it.

    Malarie Gokey, digitaltrends.com

    ZDNet
  • Of particular interest is the fact that TrulySecure is an on-device biometric identification system that does not rely on a connection to the cloud. Many users prefer this approach because they do not wish for their biometric data to be replicated and stored outside of their personal devices.

    Max Maxfield, EE Times
  • TrulySecure works by watching and listening as you repeat a passphrase a couple times. The system tracks the way your lips move and registers the unique attributes of your voice.

    Good Gear Guide
  • Sensory is trying to revolutionize voice and speech recognition by creating TrulyHandsfree, which looks to evolve our interactions with our smart devices.
