Multimodal SIG: IBM's Multimodal Initiatives



  • The Monthly Meeting of the Multimodal Interactive SIG


    Presentation Overview

    "IBM's Multimodal Initiatives" and details how the industry is preparing itself for the delivery of multimodal content, both in next generation media & mobile services. Multimodality blends speech input/output with Web services, and helps resolve the issue today where devices are considered bottlenecks between users and content. We will specifically address the standards that will help us have a common foundation for this burgeoning ecosystem as well as the specific IBM technologies, both clients, middleware & SDKs, that are being brought to bear in this emerging market.

    Look for this talk to reference some exciting announcements in the week prior to your event at SpeechTEK!
