PODCAST

Embedded Insiders
 
Last episode, the Embedded Insiders explored how voice recognition will impact privacy and security in the smart home. This episode, Todd Mozer, CEO of audio and voice processing company Sensory, joins the pair. Mozer gives an insider's perspective of the DSP and machine learning technologies powering voice rec platforms, and what they mean for developers (and users) of virtual assistants.

In engineering, it?s common to deal with three competing factors: something can be produced well, cheaply, or fast. Networking has to make the same sort of tradeoffs, but parameters could be thought of as cost, transmission range, and transmission speed.
