Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University are hoping to do for speech recognition what graphics cards did for gaming -- that is, make it better. The idea being to use specialized computer chips in order to overcome the problems inherent with software-based solutions, which'll also lower the power consumption required and allow for better speech recognition in things like cellphones. And according to the researchers, it's working, although currently limited to a not-very-practical 1,000 word vocabulary. The technology isn't just for dictating your email though; one of the many possible noted examples of applications is making search available on a specific piece of dialog from a movie. Wonder if they've been having any secret back room meetings with a certain rumor-happy video game company?
