// About Enabling Speech-to-Meaning with Acoustic Language Processing.
While machines are getting better at understanding our commands (speech-to-text), they still fail to grasp the meaning in our conversations, because speech is about more than words. OTO, a spin-off of SRI International's Speech Lab, is introducing a revolutionary new real-time acoustic technology and modelling framework called Acoustic Language Processing to allow computers to understand the rich nuance of human spoken communication.
