The popularity of voice-controlled smart assistants has substantially pushed forward the fields of speech recognition and natural language processing (NLP). This, in turn, has improved other products that make use of such technologies, like transcription engines used in meetings and interviews. But it’s one thing to simply to accurately transcribe spoken sometimes barely understandable words into text and another to extract and highlight important points in a meeting involving multiple people. Voicera’s in-meeting assistant EVA can do both and it’s no surprise that its secret sauce is artificial intelligence. Specifically, the Progressive Attention AI that the company is now making available to the public.
