Calling all senses
A more intelligent phone that understands, through sound, where it is and what’s happening.
By understanding the acoustic scene around the consumer, smartphones can adjust both the microphone and speaker, as well as other settings like ring volume, depending on what is happening. That could be a busy coffee shop, a bustling city street or a quiet apartment.
Smartphones understand who is in a photo or video and where it was taken, but they don’t understand what is happening. Sound recognition can tag and enhance key segments of video if it recognises important moments.
