Measuring of a software processing speed – what is the FtRT (Faster than Real Time)

Relevance: 21%      Posted on: 2019-10-30

Faster Than Real Time (FTRT) is metrics developed for defining software performance reference point. Using this metric you can collect "benchmark" data of real processing speed for reviewed software, which should be found - and reproduced - on exactly defined HW. Then, comparing various benchmarks result, you can compare performance of the specified software and its parts on different HW configurations. And vice versa - using the same metric you can compare software from different vendors on the same HW configuration and for the same processing task. We are recognizing two measurable metrics: Recording based FTRT is calculated from real…

Speech Engine configuration file explained

Relevance: 11%      Posted on: 2021-02-19

In this article we explain details of the Speech Engine configuration file phxspe.properties, located in settings subdirectory in SPE installation location. Settings in this configuration file affect the Speech Engine behavior and performance. The configuration file is usually created after SPE installation – on first use of phxadmin, a default configuration filephxspe.properties is created in the settings directory. The file is loaded during SPE startup, i.e. you need to restart SPE to apply any changes made in the file. If Speech Engine is used together with Phonexia Browser in so-called "embedded" mode (see details about "embedded SPE" mode in Browser…

Sizing of the computing units for speech technologies

Relevance: 11%      Posted on: 2018-02-02

Best practices for good sizing of Phonexia technologies depend on a few facts: Intense work with large data sets requires good performance and bandwidth between RAM and CPU. It all depends on the size of the files with technological models data, usually loaded into RAM and used intensively for computing operations Always think only about physical cores of CPU (HT, VT features can't help in performance) Also seek for CPUs with a large L3 cache. And the better CPUs are those with higher l3_cache_size/#_of_physical_CPU_cores ratio. We currently assume that CPUs from the current Intel Xeon Family in the 4th generation…

Speaker Identification (SID)

Relevance: 7%      Posted on: 2019-06-13

Phonexia Speaker Identification uses the power of voice biometry to recognize speakers by their voice... i.e. to decide whether the voice in two recordings belongs to the same person or two different people. High accuracy of Speaker Identification, the Phonexia's flagship technology, has been validated in a NIST Speaker Recognition Evaluations. Basic use cases and application areas The technology can be used for various speaker recognition tasks. One basic distinction is based on the kind of question we want to answer. Speaker Identification is the case when we are asking "Whose voice is this?", such as in fake emergency calls.…

STT Language Model Customization tutorial

Relevance: 2%      Posted on: 2019-04-24

Language Model Customization tool (LMC) provides a way to improve the Speech To Text performance by creating customized language model. Language model is an important part of Phonexia Speech To Text. In a simplified way it can be imagined as a large dictionary with multiple statistics. The Speech To Text technology uses this dictionary and statistical model to convert audio signals into the proper text equivalents. Due to general diversity of spoken speech, the default generic language model may not acknowledge the importance of certain words over other words in certain situations. Language model customization is a way to inform…
