  2. 2. 2 MARKET RESEARCH • According to «Automatic Speech Recognition Applications Market 2010-2013», the world speech technologies market is estimated at $900 million. The market growth is about 28% a year. • Russian speech technologies market is not large. According to “STEL – Computer Systems”, its size is about $10 million, and the market dynamics is 15-20%. The “Speech Technologies Center” company is more optimistic – it estimates Russian market at $25 million. • However, despite the foregoing, there is still no simple and user-friendly tool for effective creation of speech interfaces, available for developers.
  3. 3. 3 BACKGROUND The speech technologies market is developing rapidly, penetrating all the spheres of our everyday life. The Russian market is lagging behind, but recently people in this country also face speech interfaces quite often, mostly while interaction with the systems of customer service. It may seem that the quality of such systems wholly depends on the quality of speech synthesis and recognition. However, there is an equally important factor which influences the effectiveness of speech systems – the quality of a dialog as a whole. It depends on successful completion of the system’s work and satisfaction of the user. In connection therewith the problem of dialog construction appears to be urgent. It is not a trivial task as it might seem. While creating a dialog interface one should take into account numerous rules and recommendations which are not obvious for developers having no experience of work with speech technologies. Besides, they have to execute a great amount of specific work including efforts to create a dialog and integrate it with ASR and TTS systems, create in-house databases and knowledge bases, etc. All that makes it necessary to create a universal and user-friendly instrument, available for developers, for speech dialog interfaces construction.
  4. 4. SPEECH PLATFORM • The Platform is integration of three large technologies: speech synthesis (TTS), speech recognition (ASR) and dialog support. The Platform also includes the use of other speech technologies (dictation, speaker authentication, etc.) • The Platform includes in-house data- and knowledge bases, standard corpora, dictionaries and gateways for interaction with external information resources and client databases. • Novelty and the main advantage of the Platform consist in the presence of an in- house dialog engine integrated with technologies of third-party ASR and TTS engines. • The Platform development and commercial projects creation are planned to be simultaneous. Commercial solutions are created while development of technologies and expansion of functionality. • Commercialization of the Platform technologies is to be via creation of in-house commercial applications as well as through licensing of outside developers. 4
  5. 5. COMMERCIAL POSITIONING 5 Commercial positioning of the project has two main directions: 1. The Platform developers will create their own cluster of unique speech services and applications including: • Telephony solutions • Mobile applications • Corporate speech services • Speech interfaces for existing services 2. Through license system external developers will create interactive speech interfaces to their own applications based on the Platform.
  6. 6. 6 PROJECT PORTFOLIO Prototypes of the following systems have been created or underway at the moment: BusinessVox – system of automatic inbound calls routing based on innovative speech synthesis and recognition technologies. MedVox – speech service of inbound and outbound calls processing for medical facilities. MedVox.Doc – speech application for filling in the patient’s electronic health record. PhoneLine Manager – speech service optimizing phone line handling via systems of callback and auto-informing. LogVox – speech service of utility counter data collection. BankVox – speech service providing the caller on the fly with information about the nearest ATMs and bank branches.
  7. 7. 7 PROJECT DYNAMICS  The prototype of the dialog engine is created.  The system of automatic voice call routing OfficeVox is in operation at the “RTI- Sitronics” corporate group.  The system of automatic medical appointment MedVox is in operation at the Medical Center of Information and Analysis of Irkutsk region.  Prototypes of commercial systems in the following segments are developed: • corporate telephony, • healthcare, • banking sector, • housing and public utilities sector.  State registration certificates for computer programs and databases belonging to the Platform are received.
  8. 8. 8 INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY Received state registration certificates:  № 2011618581 “Program of keyword-based text dialog construction”,  № 2012613366 “Speech dialog platform”,  № 2013617971 “Voice dialog system of medical appointment;  № 2012620482 “Database of popular Russian surnames in male and female forms according to SAMPA standard”,  № 2012620510 “Database of materials for speech recognition and synthesis systems testing and quality evaluation”,  № 2012615028 “Automated workstation for operating with program of keyword- based text dialog construction”.
