Google trying to make its speech recognition work offline: Reports

According to reports, Google could be working on making Google Now, it’s speech recognition-based assistant work for Android users even if they are offline. According to a report by Gizmodo, speech recognition heavily relies on cloud computing to function optimally. It’s essential as the processing power and memory required is huge. The report reveals that in a recent paper, Google engineers have shared how they used deep machine learning techniques to run a not so heavy speech recognition program that resides on the smartphone. The paper describes the research project as ‘a large vocabulary speech recognition system that is accurate, has low latency, and yet has a small enough memory and computational footprint to run faster than real-time on a Nexus 5 Android smartphone.’ Explaining it technically, the paper says…
