"Sensory's technology makes it very easy for manufacturers to integrate a TrulyHandsfree voice-controlled user experience. The key to offering an effective voice wake up word technology is ensuring that the system is not only activated when the trigger phrase is spoken, but also ensuring the system is not accidentally activated when the wakeup word is not spoken. Sensory and the AVS team have worked hard to bring manufacturers innovative voice capabilities, so it is exciting for us to be working together," said Todd Mozer, CEO of Sensory.
"Alexa was designed to make it easy for companies like Sensory to build on the service and offer a variety of choices to manufacturers when creating voice-experiences," said Aaron Brown, Director of Alexa. "We are excited to work with Sensory on Alexa voice trigger models that enable hands-free Alexa experiences for a wide variety of products."
Third-party developers are starting to come to market with Alexa-enabled devices that utilize Sensory's wake up word models. One such company is Nucleus, that recently released their Alexa-enabled intercom. "When we were developing Nucleus, we tried other speech recognition technologies; however, after experimenting with Sensory's voice models, we quickly realized why everyone says their technology is the best. The performance and accuracy benefits of Sensory's wake up voice models for Alexa have been fantastic," said Isaac Levy, Founder and CTO of Nucleus Life.
Sensory has over 20 patents in the area of on-device voice wakeup, and its TrulyHandsfree voice activation has shipped in over 1 billion devices, making it the most widely deployed hands-free speech recognition technology in the world.
