Baidu's Silicon Valley R&D Team Demos Deep Speech

Baidu Research demonstrated its Deep Speech technology integrated into Peel's AI-based platform for home control to create next-generation voice-enabled smart home products.

Peel Smart Remote is universal remote app that puts content discovery and device control onto a smartphone. The app has more than 150 million users in 200 countries and 10 billion monthly remote commands.

Deep Speech is a state-of-the-art speech recognition system developed using "end-to-end deep learning" by Baidu Research's Silicon Valley AI Lab (SVAIL).

The Peel demo uses speech recognition to access live TV, DVR and streaming content seamlessly across devices. For example, using voice commands, a user can switch between House of Cards on Roku and Game of Thrones on cable TV, or ask to see a line-up of comedy shows or programs about the US presidential election.

Baidu's Adam Coates, who leads the SVAIL team, said: "Speech recognition is at an inflection point. In the future, it will be as easy to talk to your devices as it is to talk to the person next to you. We are excited about the potential of the collaboration with Peel to bring that experience to users."

Peel Co-founder and Chief Product Officer Bala Krishnan added: "This collaboration is opening up new exciting possibilities for our users. Voice command and artificial intelligence are the foundation for the next generation of Peel universal home control."
