GOOGLE SPEECH TO TEXT
To build a new more affordable and user-friendly user interface to facilitate the access to an Elderly Companion software, and to nurture the “brain” of the robotic teacher assistant and the elderly companion robot.
An application which was accessible from a desktop, tablet, or mobile device, featuring a human-like face, voice recognition, and delivery of information as text and speech. The audio commands were captured through the browser, converted to text, and sent to DialogFlow for language processing. Depending on the results from DialogFlow, different resources were activated in the backend. All the interactions with the avatar were used to feed the natural language conversational model of the system, and to collect relevant information from the user to better assist them.
