Build voice powered IoT
Thursday, December 6, 10:45-12:45h
Snips is a software solution to power Private by Design voice assistants.
Businesses or individuals, anyone can set up the Snips platform on a single board computer (for example a Raspberry Pi 3 or an i.MX8M), and install a voice assistant on it.
What’s very special about Snips is that your assistant will be able to understand what you mean, however you formulate it. This is what we call Natural Language. The objective is to completely transform the way we interact with technology, using voice as a universal interface. It’s the same kind of experience that new devices as Amazon Echo or Google Assistant are bringing, with the important difference that none of your voice gets sent to the cloud. 100% of the machine learning algorithms required to transform your voice into actionable information runs fully on your device. This is what we call Privacy by Design.
Eric Bezzam is a Tech Evangelist at Snips, the first private-by-design voice assistant. He is passionate about education, open-source, and everything audio. He has worked at Fraunhofer IDMT, DSP Concepts, and EPFL, where he started Switzerland’s largest student hackathon.Get your ticket!
