LONDON, ENGLAND - ART Advanced Recognition Technologies Inc., the developer of natural Human User Interface technologies for the mobile world, announced the porting of ART's speech and natural handwriting recognition solutions to the new Intel PXA250 and Intel PXA210 applications processors. Based on the Intel XScale technology, the Intel PXA250 and Intel PXA210 applications processors are designed for the next generation of wireless Internet devices, applications and services. "Recognition technologies like those from ART are important in driving the next generation of user interface for wireless devices," said Mark Casey, director of marketing for Intel's PCA Components Group. "Tuned to the Intel PXA250 applications processor, ART's high-performance, low resource embedded software can help reduce vital battery consumption, and their feature-rich technologies will enable developers to focus on value-add features - with the swiftest time to market." "Using the Intel PXA250 applications processor provides us with the best opportunity to showcase ART's technologies," said Nir Ben-Dor, ART's director of sales and business development, Europe.

ART Releases Name Dialing Solution
LONDON, ENGLAND - ART Advanced Recognition Technologies Inc., developer of natural Human User Interface technologies for the mobile world, announced the launch of smARTspeak XG - the speaker independent name dialing solution to be embedded in wireless mobile devices. With dynamic recognition based on phoneme identification, the smARTspeak XG needs no training to provide name dialing functionality in response to the user's verbal command. The result is that no more time needs to be spent recording names into your phone book, or browsing/searching for contacts - and no more trying to remember exactly how you phrased your original entry. Now, once a name and number are stored in the device, saying `Call John Smith in his office' activates the device to call John Smith's office number. Because the smARTspeak XG is speaker independent, it recognizes the command of any user with equal accuracy. Thus multiple users can now access an address book by requesting a name they want to call. "The smARTspeak XG is a boon to every mobile device user," said Eran Aharonson, ART's President. "Finally, multiple users can pick up a device and instruct it to dial using any phrasing that they choose. And the same technology allows the dynamic launch of any command feature with the utmost simplicity."
