Conversational Speech Recognition for Creating Intelligent Agents on Wearables
Source: Georgia Institute of Technology
Paper-based planners and calendar programs run on personal digital assistants are common methods to remind users of tasks and appointments. Both require a certain amount of time to record an entry. Is it worthwhile (or even possible) to try to create an appointment scheduling system which takes significantly less time and effort? The paper argues that it is and describes one such system currently being built, its potential benefits, and some of the issues it must overcome. This system, called the Calendar Guardian Agent (CGA), runs on a wearable computer to assist in scheduling appointments based on captured speech from a user's everyday conversations.
