 The 10th anniversary of iFLYTEK input method: more than 1 billion Japanese voice interaction times


At the activity site, Zhang Jidong shared the development of iFLYTEK input method technology in the past ten years: in 2010, iFLYTEK input method version 1.0 successfully applied hidden Markov model to speech recognition system, which increased input efficiency by three times; in 2012, iFLYTEK input method took the lead in applying deep neural network DNN technology to speech recognition, making the recognition effect reach the industry-leading level; in 2018, it launched hyb Ridcnn speech recognition engine, greatly improving the effect of Chinese and English mixed input Driven by A.I. and big data accumulation, iFLYTEK input method achieves the iteration from single recognition rate to full scene input coverage.

Up to now, iFLYTEK input method has more than 1 billion Japanese voice interaction times, more than 500 million voice input service equipment, and more than 70% of voice users account for voice users, which proves its core technical competitiveness in the market.

In 2017, iFLYTEK input method launched the public welfare action of dialect protection plan to protect dialects through intelligent voice technology. In a few months, more than 800000 people participated. So far, there are nearly 1.4 million precious corpus in the dialect database, and 23 dialects are recognized through A.I. language replication.

During the outbreak of this years epidemic, iFLYTEK input method was urgently launched with the function of Wuhan dialect to Putonghua, which strongly helped Wuhan fight the epidemic and became the trump card application of the war epidemic language service group.

In addition, iFLYTEK input method has launched the see with me information accessibility public welfare action for three consecutive years, applying the industry-leading A.I. technology to the barrier free mode. Relying on the rich functions of barrier free voice input and expression input, iFLYTEK input method has laid a blind road to the Internet world, meeting the personalized and diversified accessibility input of more than 17 million visually impaired groups Functional requirements, so that people with visual impairment can use it quickly and smoothly in different scenarios.

At the activity site, iFLYTEK input method also obtained the barrier free certification certificate issued by China Blind Association, becoming the first input method product certified by China Blind Association.

At the salon, Fang Qingping, the Guinness world record holder for the fastest Mandarin speaking speed, challenged Mulan CI with iFLYTEK. According to the data published by the notary on the spot, Fang Qingping took 17.81 seconds to read 182 words. At the speed that the audience can hardly hear, iFLYTEK input method can accurately identify and automatically add punctuation. According to Fang Qingpings on-site challenge record, iFLYTEK input method can recognize 613 words in one minute, and the recognition accuracy rate reaches 100%.

At the activity site, Cheng Kun, general manager of iFLYTEK input method business department, also showed the latest version of iFLYTEK input method version 10.0. This version is equipped with dynamic adaptive codec speech recognition engine, which makes the general speech recognition rate achieve a major breakthrough on the basis of 98%. The new lip shape auxiliary input can improve the recognition effect of noisy environment and close talk.

Input efficiency is not the end point. Above efficiency, input methods, as popular products, should satisfy diversified expressions and adapt to complex input environments, Cheng added. In addition to the expansion of voice function boundary, iFLYTEK input method version 10.0 is also based on the concept of no switching. It is the first to realize continuous handwriting of English words, that is, both Chinese characters and complete English words can be written directly in the input panel. So far, iFLYTEK input method has realized the Chinese and English input of voice, Pinyin and handwriting without switching. In the new decade, iFLYTEKs input method focuses on 5g and aiot fields. In iFLYTEKs view, the future input method is not only an input tool for words, expressions and symbols, but also provides intelligent services applied to various device terminals and full chain interaction.
