In Project Euphonia, Google researchers are utilizing Artificial Intelligence (AI) to explore how this technology can recognize various types of speech patterns of people who have communication difficulties in general.
This speech disorder is caused by neurological conditions, such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson's, or Amytotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) that Stephen Hawking has suffered from for decades.
"Researchers from Google AI are exploring the idea of a personalized communication model that better understands different types of speech, as well as how AI can help those who can't speak to communicate. We call this Project Euphonia research," said Google CEO Sundar Pichai at Google I / O 2019.
Pichai said that his party will continue to make efforts to provide voice recognition through Google Assistant in the future. But right now, Google needs more speech samples to train this technology.
Therefore, the technology company based in Mountain View invites everyone who has difficulty speaking to send a sample of their voice to speed up this technology.
"This is a perfect example of what we are doing by building a Google that is more useful to everyone. One of the most powerful ways, we provide assistance to our users through our open source Android platform," he concluded.
