Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) looking to make Siri in house

AAPL NASDAQ AAPL Apple

Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) are looking to make Siri’s Voice Recognition technology in-house. Currently the back-end technology of Apple’s Siri is maintained by Nuance (NASDAQ: NUAN). As announced at the WWDC 2014, Siri is set to play a major role in Apple’s HomeKit. Apple are looking to introduce Neural Network technique to make Siri more efficient. Meanwhile, Samsung has been rumored to purchase Nuance in the near future.

Neural Networking technique allows voice-recognition systems to understand more spoken words. As additional words are added, the context of the words can also be understood by this technique. Several research works have proven the efficiency of this algorithm, speculated to have an accuracy of around 25% more.

Siri is about to take center stage on Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) home automation platform, HomeKit. While Siri has gotten mixed reviews from iOS users, Apple Inc would have liked to strengthen Siri before HomeKit’s release. Using neural networks seems to be a good way to do it.

Apple Inc to use Neural Networks for Siri

Added accuracy along with In-House flexibility, makes this move from Apple very compelling. Neural network algorithms figure into Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android voice recognition technology, and are featured in Microsoft’s Skype Translate. But this would be the first time Apple uses Neural Networks.

Using Neural Networks should boost the understanding and ease of Siri’s usage. This update would help Apple’s valuable Siri to be at par with its competitors. With a possible sale of Nuance to rivals Samsung, Apple Inc would welcome this move more than ever.
