  • Publication number: 20210280167
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a method, computer system, and computer program product for customizing the rendering of a synthesized speech prompt is provided. The present invention may include extracting prosodic information from a received audio recording of a prompt by parsing the text corresponding with the prompt and generating phonetic units, aligning the phonetic units with the audio recording, and calculating, based on the alignment, prosodic values for the phonetic units. The invention may further include adapting the prosodic values to match a text-to-speech voice in use, and then synthesizing speech for the prompt based upon the adapted prosodic information.

  • Publication number: 20210256261
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods for presenting and annotating virtual content. According to an example method, a virtual object is presented to a first user at a first position via a transmissive display of a wearable device. A first input is received from the first user. In response to receiving the first input, a virtual annotation is presented at a first displacement from the first position via the transmissive display. A first data is transmitted to a second user, the first data associated with the virtual annotation and the first displacement. A second input is received from the second user. In response to receiving the second input, the virtual annotation is presented to the first user at a second displacement from the first position via the transmissive display. Second data is transmitted to a remote server, the second data associated with the virtual object, the virtual annotation, the second displacement, and the first position.

  • Patent number: 10726826
    Abstract: A computer system receives a training set of voice data captured from one or more speakers and classified with one or more categorical prosodic labels according to one or more prosodic categories. The computer system transforms the voice data of the training set while preserving one or more portions of the voice data that determine the one or more categorical prosodic labels to automatically form a new training set of voice data automatically classified with the one or more categorical prosodic labels according to the one or more prosodic categories. The computer system augments a database comprising the training set with the new training set for training a speech model of an artificial intelligence system.

  • Publication number: 20200180217
    Abstract: Provided are systems and methods for additive manufacturing, which systems and methods yield parts having improved interlayer adhesion. In the disclosed technology, additional heating steps are applied on the upper surface of the already printed workpiece so as to offset the dropping temperature of that surface during part fabrication. These heating steps elevate the temperature of the surface to a value that results in a molten interface with subsequently-applied build material, leading to improved interlayer adhesion. This technology is applicable to a variety of additive manufacturing processes, including but not limited to selective laser sintering, fused filament fabrication, and large format additive manufacturing approaches.
