With Alexa, Apple Home Pod and many other smart speakers conquering homes around the globe, artificial intelligence technology is gaining more and more importance in people’s lives. Therefore, progress in this field is accelerating recently.
Researchers from Apple and Carnegie Mellon University have presented the “Listen Learner” technology, which allows AIs embedded in smart homes to learn about their environment independently without training data by listening to acoustic sounds, and to become smarter all the time. By asking specific questions about heard sounds and in interaction with humans, the system increasingly learns about the surrounding sounds and can derive actions from them. The technology could be used not only in smart home devices, but also in various wearables such as smart watches.
