23 Jan voice recognition
I recognize my wife’s voice on the phone, but this is way different. This voice recognition is a misnomer for computationally recognizing words when spoken (voiced) into a microphone. Speech to text or STT may be a better expression for this conversion that translates sound waves into patterns that can be matched with words and phrases to tell a digital device what a person just said (i.e. “read your lips”). This is also completely different from language understanding, which begins with the words and tries to determine what prompted you to say something, or your intent (i.e. “read your mind”).
