Helping machines understand our world, our way

Our five senses help us navigate the world around us and technological advancements will replicate them in machines. Touch and imaging technology have become commonplace, smell and taste are coming.

The wider world of sounds, beyond speech and music, is the latest frontier of AI. Without human interaction, voice assistants sit dormant. Speech is sound but sound is not speech.

By giving consumer tech the ability to understand context in the same way we do, we can create a new generation of products that delight and assist us every day. Through a range of human senses, in particular hearing, we can deliver the smart products of the future that will entertain, protect and enable us to do more.
