Abstract

This paper provides an overview of artificial intelligence (AI) and speech recognition technology, including its history, applications, challenges, and future prospects. AI-powered speech recognition technology has significantly improved over the years, and it is used in various applications, such as virtual assistants, voice-activated devices, and dictation software. The technology leverages machine learning algorithms that are trained on vast amounts of speech data to recognize and interpret human speech with accuracy levels that are comparable to those of humans. However, the technology still faces many challenges, such as speech variability and background noise, which make it challenging to develop speech recognition algorithms that can accurately recognize all types of speech. The article provides a comprehensive review of the technical aspects of automatic speech recognition, including the process involved, the algorithms used, and the challenges and opportunities for future research in this area. The paper also discusses the architecture of automatic speech recognition (ASR) systems and the main components that make up the system. The authors explain that ASR systems consist of three main components: the acoustic model, the language model, and the decoder. They also discuss the challenges that ASR systems face, such as speaker variability, noise, and limited vocabulary. Overall, this paper provides a detailed introduction to AI and speech recognition technology and its potential for various industries.
