COMPRISE is building voice interaction technologies for the Next Generation Internet (NGI) that will be more secure, more cost-effective, and more inclusive. While voice-enabled applications are becoming ubiquitous, their development requires increasing amounts of human-labeled voice and text data and must be repeated in every language. This raises critical privacy concerns, incurs high costs for voice technology companies and application developers, and fails to address all languages and users. To solve these issues, COMPRISE has released a series of innovative software tools to hide personal attributes in voice and text data, develop systems from partialy unlabeled data, personalize them, and translate from one language to another on-the-fly. These tools have been integrated in the COMPRISE SDK and the COMPRISE Cloud Platform, which will provide full-fledged functionality for voice technology companies and mobile application developers.
