Taiwan’s first natural semantic understanding technology enabling seamless dialogue between humans and speech recognition systems was recently released by the Industrial Technology Research Institute.

“The technology incorporates speech recognition and understanding, as well as dialogue management and a knowledge database,” said Wu Cheng-wen, director of ITRI Information and Communications Research Laboratories. “Utilizing cloud-based, high-speed, big data processing, the technology can recognize a descriptive question and supply the correct answer, demonstrating an advanced level of sentence comprehension.”

The technology was developed following the emergence of intelligent mobile devices, in which voice interfaces based on Q&A formats simplify the search function. This interesting information was found on Taiwan Today in their article, “ITRI unveils natural semantic technology.”

Semantic technology requires a special knowledge of terminology and coding to reduce errors. Access Innovations, developer of the M.A.I. machine-assisted indexing system and specializing in complex coding, tagging, and indexing, provides a range of services that deliver tag integrity.
