A former Nasa chief has spoken for the first time about a new form of speech recognition technology developed in secret by his ‘stealth startup’ which is claimed to eclipse current services offered by Apple, Google & Microsoft.
Machine learning firm KnuEdge, established under the radars by Dan Goldin, has lifted the lid on its first product, KnuVerse, a voice recognition tool designed to be used as a form of biometric audio fingerprint to allow people to access banking and other services without the need for a PIN or password.
Goldin said: “We are not about incremental technology. Our mission is fundamental transformation.
“We were swinging for the fences from the very beginning, with intent to create next-generation technologies that will in essence alter how humans interact with machines, and enable next-generation computing capabilities ranging from signal processing to machine learning.”
At the heart of the new technology is a new computer chip dubbed Knupath which, it is claimed, is superior at processing machine learning and AI tasks than existing chipsets.
