Intel working on voice-enabled application for computers

Chandigarh: Computer chip maker Intel today said it is working on developing a chip that can support voice enabled software application in computers that may be launched next year.
“We are working closely with many companies on voice enabled application…we are working on a chip that should be compatible with voice enabled interface and it should have that much capacity and should be that much powerful which can process it with minimum usage of battery,” Intel Technology India, Director, Marketing & Market Development (South Asia) Sandeep Aurora told reporters here today.
“I would expect it may come out next year,” he said.
Noting that a few voice enabled interface solutions are available in the market but which are not much robust, he said, “for a country like India where literacy rate is not that much high, rolling out of voice enabled software solutions will be immensely beneficial.”
Intel launched 4th generation Intel core processors earlier this year which delivers 50 per cent improvement in battery life, translating to over nine hours in some systems and also enable a range of 2-in-1 convertible devices that can act as both a tablet and a PC.
“We will continue to move full steam ahead into the tablet and 2-in1 space. Touch it, type on it, or talk to it these devices are multi tasking powerhouses that will offer us new interaction possibilities,” he said.
Observing that computer and Internet penetration is abysmally low in India, Aurora expected that with the extensive roll out of 4G, the scale of computer and Internet penetration in the country would go up considerably.
“I think in next 2-3 years, the computer and Internet penetration will reach a level of 30 and 50 per cent which is at present 10 and 5 per cent respectively,” he said.
