How does Aido understand what we say?

We believe that voice will play a huge role in making robots more useful. When designing Aido, we focused on ensuring that users could talk to Aido, and Aido could reply back in a conversational & more personal manner:

  • Aido has a 6 mic array set around a circular base with a dedicated hardware chip for listening to human voice, even in noisy environments. It is the same design that many smart TVs use to allow users to control functions using voice.
  • Aido uses a leading 3rd party speech engine based on a custom deep neural net architecture for continuous speech recognition.
  • This allows Aido to listen to commands and parse them into instructions that Aido understands.
