IBM Watson Machine Learning

Wherever you have a well qualified, segregated, data set with a clear problem definition any machine learning tool can be deployed. However, the key is to help the client define the problem to create the baseline on the performance and show improvements. It may so happen that we may not need a machine learning tool. This is where the execution of IBM Watson Machine Learning is lacking.

Dragon Speech Recognition

My job requires that I produce lengthy and detailed minutes of meetings and Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition is absolutely ideally suited for this purpose. Notably, meetings are recorded and it is extremely easy to playback the recording of meetings while dictating notes. This is a remarkable saving in time and effort in producing minutes that might otherwise take a few days.I cannot think of any scenario where it would be less appropriate to use Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition other than in a situation where it is not possible to dictate for whatever reason.

IBM had a hard time providing business level support. There were a lot of data scientists and technology experts but rarely a simple business person shows up. Also the way IBM operates IBM Consulting has competing priorities as compared to IBM Technology. This has resulted in a lot of confusion at the client's end.

One of the worst companies in terms of customer service getting the download file because of a laptop upgrade took me months of work. No jokes.

We have been using Microsoft Azure as a machine learning tool. But the challenges remain the same. These are all tools that you need a robust analysis before a decision on the tool. Unfortunately, the technology company cannot make that determination due to lack of core business understanding. Without that the project is doomed.

Dragon Speech Recognition

Nuance Dragon uses recognition models based on the analysis of thousands of voice and text samples when users set and train their user profile. The created user profiles are then modified based on their sound (acoustic model) as well as the words and expressions used (vocabulary and corresponding language model). This synchronization method takes into account users' various accents and speech patterns. Dictation is 3 three times faster when compared to other recognition software.

Dragon Speech Recognition

  • For those members of staff who have been given approval to use Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition, return for the organisation has been significantly improved efficiency in the time taken to turnaround work within very tight timescales.
  • It has allowed members of staff more time to proof read and correct documentation prior to publication.
  • It has promoted greater consistency in the "in-house" agenda & minute writing styles as it allows members of staff to amend and/or correct documentation quickly and easily to ensure consistency, should this be required.
