  • Publication number: 20190311175
    Abstract: A fingerprint collection method and a terminal, where the method includes obtaining, by a terminal, a fingerprint collection instruction, where the fingerprint collection instruction instructs to collect a fingerprint using a fingerprint sensor integrated on a function key, collecting, by the terminal using the fingerprint sensor based on the fingerprint collection instruction, fingerprint information recorded by a user on the function key, obtaining, by the terminal on the function key at any moment of collecting the fingerprint information, a first key event triggered by the user, where the first key event is any operation other than a fingerprint recording event, and discarding, by the terminal, the first key event.

  • Publication number: 20190074009
    Abstract: Systems and processes for operating an intelligent automated assistant are provided. In accordance with one example, a method includes, at an electronic device with one or more processors, memory, and a plurality of microphones, sampling, at each of the plurality of microphones of the electronic device, an audio signal to obtain a plurality of audio signals; processing the plurality of audio signals to obtain a plurality of audio streams; and determining, based on the plurality of audio streams, whether any of the plurality of audio signals corresponds to a spoken trigger. The method further includes, in accordance with a determination that the plurality of audio signals corresponds to the spoken trigger, initiating a session of the digital assistant; and in accordance with a determination that the plurality of audio signals does not correspond to the spoken trigger, foregoing initiating a session of the digital assistant.

  • Publication number: 20180120236
    Abstract: A natural jewelry authenticity identification method comprises: scanning the whole appearance of each jewel by three-dimensional microscopic scanning and completely recording appearance characteristics of the jewel; a three-dimensional imaging technique is used to generate a three-dimensional entity image of the jewel, and a digest algorithm is used to compress three-dimensional entity image information about the jewel into a unique digest code, wherein the three-dimensional entity image and the digest code are published as publishable archive information; and if a receiver is a dealer, the same method is adopted to generate a digest code of the natural jewel, and the digest code is compared with the published digest code; and if the receiver is an individual buyer, after the natural jewel is received, the actual object is magnified and compared with the published three-dimensional entity image, and if the comparison is matched, the natural jewel is identified as authentic.

  • Patent number: 8983832
    Abstract: Systems and methods for detecting features in spoken speech and processing speech sounds based on the features are provided. One or more features may be identified in a speech sound. The speech sound may be modified to enhance or reduce the degree to which the feature affects the sound ultimately heard by a listener. Systems and methods according to embodiments of the invention may allow for automatic speech recognition devices that enhance detection and recognition of spoken sounds, such as by a user of a hearing aid or other device.

  • Publication number: 20110178799
    Abstract: Methods and systems of identifying speech sound features within a speech sound are provided. The sound features may be identified using a multi-dimensional analysis that analyzes the time, frequency, and intensity at which a feature occurs within a speech sound, and the contribution of the feature to the sound. Information about sound features may be used to enhance spoken speech sounds to improve recognizability of the speech sounds by a listener.

  • Publication number: 20080162125
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for language independent voice searching in a mobile communication device is disclosed. The method may include receiving a search query from a user of the mobile communication device, converting speech parts in the search query into linguistic representations which covers at least one languages, generating a search phoneme lattice based on the linguistic representations, extracting query features from the search phoneme lattice, generating query feature vectors based on the extracted features, performing a coarse search using the query feature vectors and the indexing feature vectors from the indexing database, performing a fine search using the results of the coarse search and the indexing phoneme lattices stored in the indexing database, and outputting the fine search results to a dialog manager.
