  • Patent number: 10242670
    Abstract: A system and method for syntactic re-ranking of possible transcriptions generated by automatic speech recognition are disclosed. A computer system accesses acoustic data for a recorded spoken language and generates a plurality of potential transcriptions for the acoustic data. The computer system scores the plurality of potential transcriptions to create an initial likelihood score for the plurality of potential transcriptions. For a particular potential transcription in the plurality of transcriptions, the computer system generates a syntactical likelihood score. The computer system creates an adjusted score for the particular potential transcription by combining the initial likelihood score and the syntactic likelihood score for the particular potential transcription.

  • Publication number: 20180075841
    Abstract: Technologies for detecting an end of a sentence in automatic speech recognition are disclosed. An automatic speech recognition device may acquire speech data, and identify phonemes and words of the speech data. The automatic speech recognition device may perform a syntactic parse based on the recognized words, and determine an end of a sentence based on the syntactic parse. For example, if the syntactic parse indicates that a certain set of consecutive recognized words form a syntactically complete and correct sentence, the automatic speech recognition device may determine that there is an end of a sentence at the end of that set of words.

  • Patent number: 9858923
    Abstract: Generally, this disclosure provides systems, devices, methods and computer readable media for adaptation of language models and semantic tracking to improve automatic speech recognition (ASR). A system for recognizing phrases of speech from a conversation may include an ASR circuit configured to transcribe a user's speech to a first estimated text sequence, based on a generalized language model. The system may also include a language model matching circuit configured to analyze the first estimated text sequence to determine a context and to select a personalized language model (PLM), from a plurality of PLMs, based on that context. The ASR circuit may further be configured to re-transcribe the speech based on the selected PLM to generate a lattice of paths of estimated text sequences, wherein each of the paths of estimated text sequences comprise one or more words and an acoustic score associated with each of the words.

  • Patent number: 9591349
    Abstract: Various systems and methods for providing a repositionable video display on a mobile device, to emulate the effect of user-controlled binoculars, are described herein. In one example, one or more high resolution video sources (such as UltraHD video cameras) obtain video that is wirelessly broadcasted to mobile devices. The mobile device processes the broadcast based on the approximate location of the spectator's mobile device, relative to a scene within the field of view of the mobile device. The location of the mobile device may be derived from a combination of network monitoring, camera inputs, object recognition, and the like. Accordingly, the spectator can obtain a virtual magnification of a scene from an external video source displayed on the spectator's mobile device.
