Google Assistant Adds Personalized Speech Recognition

Google will soon improve its Assistant application to better recognize your requests. For this, the Mountain View company will guide her in her learning process by saving her vote on her phone. The goal is to make the interaction between AI and humans much more natural.

Google Assistant is even more accurate when it comes to recognizing your queries? This at least suggests the source code of the APK parsed by 9to5Google. According to the website, Google stores your data on your smartphone to make the AI ​​even more accurate.

This function appears in the source code under the heading “Personalized Speech Recognition” (personalized speech recognition). It should therefore arrive in the coming months for everyone, at least for users who use the Assistant in English.

Google Assistant wants to be more precise in requests

This feature will probably need to be enabled manually. After all, it’s about storing your data, and therefore your voice, on your smartphone. The purpose is to use this data to help the Assistant recognize certain voice habits, like the pronunciation of names and words you say often. Obviously, the more often you say a proper name, the better the application can recognize it, regardless of intonation. Of course, you have to accept that your voice data is stored on your phone.

Google promises that if you turn the feature on and off, all information that will be saved in the meantime is simply erased. The issue of the protection of personal data is a thorny one and the Mountain View company does not want to take any risks in this regard. We are talking about smartphones here, but the thing could be extended to all compatible terminals.

Assistant has always been one of Google’s flagship apps, and the company aims to build on it in the future. It recently announced that it is working on making interactions more natural, for example by recognizing user hesitations. Some improvements are more visible. For example, the Nest Hub Max no longer has to say “OK Google” for every request, because all you have to do is look at the screen to activate it. It’s this kind of interaction that Google is trying to impose for all these products: more natural, less forced. Of course, none of this was about the French version of the application…at least not for the time being
