Fluent.ai Deepens Partnership with DSP
Fluent.ai, a speech recognition software solutions provider, is partnering with DSP Concepts, Cadence, and Airoha to offer its embedded voice recognition solution for true wireless stereo (TWS) and other hearable products running on the Cadence Tensilica HiFi 5 DSP, which blends neural networks with traditional digital signal processing to execute audio pre-processing, keyword detection, and more natural speech recognition. The solution is part of an integration available on DSP Concepts' Audio Weaver platform to design and prototype audio features and capabilities.
Fluent.ai's latest software solution allows users to trigger more than 30 TWS actions through 101 natural and flexible voice commands for activating noise cancellation, controlling music, accepting or declining calls, checking battery level, and more.
"The complexity and requirements of TWS products continue to evolve, and Fluent.ai is proud to further its development by offering our low-latency, embedded voice recognition solution on Cadence Tensilica HiFi 5 DSP-based Airoha SoCs, a leading platform for TWS products," said Probal Lala, CEO of Fluent.ai, in a statement. "Our technology, along with the DSP Concepts Audio Weaver platform, will allow [manufacturers] to create fully customizable, intricate, and remarkable audio experiences for TWS and other hearable products, now with robust voice command capabilities."
"Audio Weaver allows audio product makers to engineer their products quickly and efficiently, and Fluent.ai's embedded voice recognition enables OEMs to stay ahead of the curve as customer demand for lower latency, greater privacy, and natural voice UI interaction increases," DSP Concepts CEO Chin Beckmann said in a statement.
"The Tensilica HiFi 5 DSP is ideal for product makers looking to include differentiating features that may be of high computational complexity in their TWS offerings," said Yipeng Liu, product marketing group director of audio/voice DSPs at Cadence, in a statement. "The Tensilica HiFi 5 DSP's low-power design enables OEMs to employ Fluent.ai's embedded voice recognition solution in a variety of products without sacrificing high computational throughput for real-time audio processing while enabling long battery life."
