Today’s industry standard has an error rate of less than one percent.
First of all, the age estimate software may enable more personalization while tailoring conversations to age groups by considering things like vocabulary and syntax.
Besides better voice activation and security, Pelecanos thinks these highly sensitive speaker recognition systems will soon be able to multitask.
