Loquendo and Expert System Improve Speech Solutions for Homeland Security

By Stefania Viscusi, Assignment Desk Editor

While speech technologies are often linked with call center systems, and consumer electronics, among other uses, one area where speech solutions are making great strides is in the security sector.
Together, speech technologies provider Loquendo and Expert System, are working to provide solutions for this market and will take part in Milipol 2008, an exhibition of national security solutions where they will highlight their new partnership and its importance to the security sector.

Expert System provides semantic software for identifying, classifying and interpreting textual information.
Homeland security is critical in today's world, and with speech technologies it's easier to streamline communications and information.
The companies' new collaboration effort is focused on developing integrated automatic voice recognition solutions that are based on semantic technology for word comprehension.
Specifically, their partnership combines Loquendo's (News - Alert) Voice Analyzer solution, created with Galyleo Visiant, which can analyze, in real-time, phone conversations for acoustic and phonetic characteristics.
This will be combined with Expert Systems' Cogito Intelligence Platform 09, a semantic software suite that provides analysts with the ability to understand the meaning of words in their context, and used in Homeland Security's intelligence process.
These solutions will be on display at the event, which is taking place next week in Doha, Qatar, and will allow an international audience of security product suppliers and national defense authorities to see the latest benefits in voice and semantic analysis.

"Milipol represents an important opportunity to present our partnership with Loquendo to the world," said Andrea Melegari, VP Security & Intelligence at Expert System, "It allows us to introduce, at an international level, the proven effectiveness of semantic technology in the field of Homeland Security.
