Capio is a start-up out of California that has a grand vision for how its next-generation speech technology can be applied to the automotive industry.
With deep learning speech recognition technology from Capio, a car becomes equipped to interact with people in much more natural, human ways. For instance, Capio's speech recognition system will be extremely aware of context and will also be able to pick up on facial and gesture-based cues such as pointing in order to string together GPS coordinates. The company is currently developing a GPU that will allow for constant connection, whether or not Internet connectivity is available.
Rather than interacting with cars of the future with buttons, a driver's own body may become a tool for communication. Beyond the automotive industry, Capio has applications for call centers, robotics and home automation.
