Researchers Build An #AI That’s Better At Reading Lips Than Humans  #MachineLearning

  • Scientists at the Oxford University have claimed to develop a new computer software program that can lip-read better than humans, which might give the hearing impaired a helping hand.
  • The new artificial intelligence (AI) software system called “Watch, Attend and Spell (WAS)” has been developed by Oxford University in collaboration with Google’s DeepMind.
  • The AI system correctly lip-read 50 percent of silent speech, while professional lip-readers got only 12 percent right, researchers found.
  • Speaking on the tech’s core value, Jesal Vishnuram, Action on Hearing Loss Technology Research Manager, said: “Action on Hearing Loss welcomes the development of new technology that helps people who are deaf or have a hearing loss to have better access to television through superior real-time subtitling.
  • AI lip-reading technology would be able to enhance the accuracy and speed of speech-to-text especially in noisy environments and we encourage further research in this area and look forward to seeing new advances being made.”

Explore how automation will transform work

Explore our interactive to see how #robotics and #AI could change daily #work activities:

  • How might robotics and artificial intelligence change jobs in sectors such as oil and retail?
  • Automation is happening, and will change the daily work activities of everyone, from miners and landscapers to commercial bankers, fashion designers, welders, and CEOs.
  • Use the interactive to explore how robotics and artificial intelligence could potentially change how work is done in four settings: oil and gas exploration, aircraft maintenance, hospital emergency departments, and grocery stores.
  • The vision of the future they provide is based on the hypotheses of industry experts.
  • To learn more about the impact of automation on the global economy and labor markets, read the McKinsey Global Institute research report Harnessing automation for a future that works.
