Sensory, Inc., the world's leading supplier of embedded speech
technologies, today announced the arrival of Adaptive Artificial
Intelligence99% for the RSC-4x Family of speech processors. This new
technology empowers developers to create products that learn over time
and display life-like personalities. Adaptive Artificial
Intelligence99% (Adaptive AI99%) is optimized for small, embedded
footprints, making it perfect for low cost consumer electronics, toys
and games. "With the advent of Adaptive Artificial Intelligence,
interaction between humans and machines takes the next big step."
said Bill Teasley, Sensory VP-Engineering, "For example, home
automation systems can learn and automatically anticipate the
preferences of the user, such as for temperature and lighting. An
entertainment robot can grow from a baby to a mature individual with
unique personality characteristics and preferences based on its
experiences. Adaptive AI99% brings life to products and products to

The Brains Behind Adaptive AI99%
Adaptive Artificial Intelligence99% technology is a methodology based
on statistical pattern recognition expressed as reinforcement learning.
Dr. Michael Mozer, an internationally recognized expert in machine
learning, developed this concept to enable machines to better meet the
social and physical desires of people. Products imitating real life
behaviors are a growing market as evidenced by the recent trend in
entertainment robots in the forms of dogs and people, and dolls that
provide interactive experiences. Adaptive AI99% enables such products
to simulate life-like characteristics with captivating personalities
that change over time. For instance, a product may get hungry or
sleepy, have specific food preferences, or tend to be excitable or
grumpy. It can even allow unique "birth characteristics" for each
unit, and along with the unit's unique experiences over time, result
in no two units being exactly alike.
Adaptive AI99% may also be used to enable a light switch or a
thermostat to learn a user's preferences for patterns of use and
settings and meet those desires automatically. No extensive product
setup is required. A short period of usage teaches the product the
user's preferences, and as the user's preferences change over time,
the product will learn these as well.

New IC's Support Adaptive AI99% Algorithms
Sensory's RSC-4x Family of microcontrollers with speech input/output
(I/O) capabilities now also support the Adaptive AI99% technology.
Powered by Sensory's new FluentChip firmware suite of speech
recognition, speech synthesis and music synthesis technologies, these
low cost IC's selling for under $2 in volume can handle recognition
vocabularies of up to 40 speaker independent words. All the necessary
ROM, RAM, and other hardware are contained on chip, including a
general-purpose microcontroller and powerful 16 bit A/D converter. By
replacing the existing microcontroller, a Sensory RSC-4x Family chip
can add intelligence and personality, speech input (recognition) and
speech output (talking), with an incremental cost of under $1. The
RSC-4x Family opens these technologies up to a new generation of
consumer products, with user interface features that were never before
