Baidu’s Adam Coates, who leads the SVAIL team, said: “Speech recognition is at an inflection point. In the future, it will be as easy to talk to your devices as it is to talk to the person next to you. We are excited about the potential of the collaboration with Peel to bring that experience to users.”
The beta version of Peel’s Deep Speech-powered remote was demonstrated by Baidu at the GPU Technology Conference in Silicon Valley. The demo shows how speech recognition can be used to access live TV, DVR and streaming content seamlessly across devices.
The remote will be available in both English and Mandarin on Android, followed by iOS.
