Voice for any IOT

 New idea.  Easier voice for any IOT.  Secure? 

Ambiq Debuts Voice-on-SPOT Kit to Bring Voice Controls to Battery-Operated Devices  By  Eric Hal Schwartz in Voicebot.ai

Microcontroller developer Ambiq has launched a new product for incorporating voice into Internet-of-Things devices more quickly. The new Voice-on-SPOT (VoS) Kit aims at working with some of the bigger names in smart devices to provide voice assistants on devices with a mix of hardware and software elements while using a minimal amount of power.


The first Ambiq VoS Kit relies on Ambiq’s Apollo3 Blue Plus MCU to offer an always-listening application with up to two microphones running wake word detection and signal processing for a  voice assistant. The idea is to build the kit into video game controls, smartwatches, health trackers, remote controls, and other battery-operated devices. They will then be able to run voice assistants either directly or as part of a larger smart home ecosystem without eating through their batteries immediately by always listening. The VoS Kit will also be rolled into future Ambiq hardware. The Apollo4 Blue VoS Kit is slated to roll out later this year, with two analog microphones and an even lower energy cost. That version will offer even more voice capabilities, including phone calls and translation services.  ... "
