Turn speech into actionable data as a service

Nice approach: The California-based startup Wit.Ai offers Speech Recognition for any kind of task, from mobile apps to robotics. Instead of creating such components themselves, developers can use the Wit.Ai technology, send them spoken language and get back structured data. If this works out I think it will have a major impact on the number of apps and even household items that understand natural spoken language commands. Nice! makes it easy for developers to build applications and devices that you can talk to. Our vision is to empower developers with an open and extensible natural language platform. learns human language from every interaction, and leverages the community: what’s learned is shared across developers.
