The Challenge

The objective of this Challenge is to create a comprehensive stack of open source voice-enabled technologies for the development of voice-enabled products. For the purpose of this Challenge, we define voice-enabled technologies as “technologies that use voice as an interface, allowing people to interact with various connected devices through verbal means -- both when speaking and listening.”

We envision that some elements of this stack would be the following technologies:

We want to improve this list by adding more relevant technologies and then place the list in a public repository for open access. To achieve this, all proposed technologies in the stack need to be open source licensed.

  • Speech-to-text (STT)
  • Text-to-speech (TSS)
  • Natural Language Processing (NLP)
  • Voice-signal processing
  • Keyword spotting
  • Keyword alignment
  • Intent parsing
  • Language parsing: stemming, entity recognition, dialog management, and summarization.
