Hacking with Microsoft & Mining Client

Dave was involved in a great hack last week in Perth with Microsoft. The goal was to enable the conversational interface that we have built there via voice, based on Microsoft Cognitive Services.

We used speaker recognition service to enrol a voice, link it to an AD account, do some smarts with tokens to pass authentication credentials around and then used custom speech to load an acoustic model, a custom dictionary and custom pronunciation.

Amazing what you can achieve in a focussed few days.
