  • Publication number: 20190170530
    Abstract: Route information data records are received from a navigation system indicating road elements and maneuvers between a starting point and a destination point. An estimated time of arrival is established using the route information data records. A personalized correction value based on the road elements, maneuvers, and a driver profile is determined. A personalized time of arrival is calculated based on the estimated time of arrival value and the personalized correction value.

  • Patent number: 10249298
    Abstract: An approach is provided for global voice-based entry of location information. The approach involves partitioning a global speech decoding graph into spatial partitions. The approach also involves determining key entities occurring in each spatial partitions to construct a combined set of key entities. The approach further involves creating a retrieval index to map the key entities in the combined set of key entities to a corresponding partition. A first partition, the combined set of key entities, and the retrieved index are stored in a memory of a device for processing a voice input signal. A second partition that is not in the memory of the device is retrieved based on the combined set of key entities and the retrieval index to automatically re-process the voice input signal when an out-of-vocabulary result is obtained from the first partition.

  • Publication number: 20190011278
    Abstract: An approach is provided for mobility-based language model adaptation for navigational speech interfaces. The approach involves receiving a word lattice resulting from a speech recognition process applied on a speech input received from a user via a navigational speech interface. The word lattice includes a respective speech recognition score for each word in the word lattice. The approach further involves adapting a language model comprising a plurality of location entities according to a mobility relevance and a search relevance of the plurality of location entities to the user. In one embodiment, the mobility relevance and the search relevance are determined by computing a probability of the user visiting the location entities associated with said each word after the user queries for said each word. The approach further involves initiating a re-scoring of said each word in the word lattice using the adapted language model to generate a speech recognition output.
