Microsoft Shows Off the Future Power of Microsoft Tellme on Windows Phone (video)August 10, 2011 2 Comments
I was already impressed by some of the Mango features we have been discussing as of late like Talking Caller ID Feature and Voice to Text. So now this next video is just plain showing off. Imagine just talking to your phone like a person, even your phone talking back and calling you by your name? Pretty creepy right? But in the same token, it is pretty damn cool. That is what the geniuses at Microsoft are working on for the future of Tellme. This is not only for Windows Phone though but to incorporate them to all their services like the Xbox 360. Take a look at the video and let us know what you think.
Remember this is only a vision and not a demo….
“Microsoft Tellme aspires to deliver interactions that are just as natural and easy as human conversation. We see a future where the service will know you: know your intent, your social and business connections, your likes and dislikes, your privacy preferences, and the things that define the context thatâ€™s important to you. The result will be a speech Natural User Interface (NUI) service that helps you accomplish everyday tasks in a more natural and conversational manner. Please note this video depicts a vision and does not make any product-specific commitments.”
“At Microsoft, weâ€™re working hard to get technology out of your way so your experience is more natural and intuitive. This year at the E3 Expo 2011, more than 50 years after the introduction of the remote control, our Xbox team introduced a new, innovative way to experience entertainment. It begins by giving TV a new voice: yours. This Xbox experience uses Kinect for Xbox 360 and speech technology from Microsoft Tellme to combine voice and gestures in a way that humanizes the power of the TV, from searching through media to interacting with games. I believe this kind of speech NUI will also change how we interact with devices of any screen size, whether theyâ€™re in your pocket, bag, car or office. Weâ€™ll use our voices across these varied devices to get more done, quickly and easily.”
“Microsoft is making big bets on speech NUI. Microsoft Tellme is driving that forward, powering the speech experiences in Kinect for Xbox 360, Windows Phone, Bing Mobile and Microsoft Tellme IVR. Because speech fits well with NUI across devices of all screen sizes, Microsoft Tellme is truly at the center of the NUI evolution.”
