Google Tech TalksMay, 15 2008ABSTRACTKen Ingham, Ph.D. will describe the architecture and motivation behind thedevelopment of Amazability, Inc.'s Adept1 product. The Adept1 performsnatural language analysis and interprets spoken words and phrases or typedinput. It accepts and interprets verbal commands and responds with highquality speech. The Adept1 is equipped with voice recognition andtext-to-speech output that dynamically adapts multilingual spoken output tocontext. The Adept1 offers such applications as word processing, email,address book, web browsing, and access to an online library of thousands ofbooks. These applications along with others have been developed from theground up to work with speech and have a common command language throughout.They can be employed using ordinary speech or typed words and sentences.Thus the product represents a foundation for implementing practical naturallanguage transaction processing where simple English phrases and sentencesare interpreted to command a sequence of complex operations. While theCompany's founders are offering a vehicle that can be used as a fullprogrammer's workstation, the operating system is hidden with allapplications designed to be used by person's with minimal or no technicalbackground.
