PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I don't think I've ever seen this before, but please correct me if I'm wrong. Samsung anf Google were supposed to unveil the Samsung Nexus Prime with Android Ice Cream Sandwich next week, but in a surprise announcement, the companies said that the press event is cancelled - out of respect for Steve Jobs. In the meantime, leaked specifications reveal that the Nexus Prime could be a real doozy.

"Siri is not à voice recognition system it's an AI system"

(Disclaimer : Although I believe I have the required knowledge of physics, signal theory, and programming, I have never worked directly on a voice recognition system. So anyone who has, please correct me if you detect some bullshit in the upcoming post)

So you believe that it is possible to make a decent voice recognition system without AI ? I don't think so, and am going to explain why.

What is voice recognition ? Basically speech to text translation. Basic theory is that you take an audio file or stream of someone saying something, you isolate words and detect punctuation based on the pauses and intonations of the talk, then you take each word separately and try to slice it into phonemes, which are pretty close to syllables but not quite the same thing. From phonemes, you can get the textual word. (to be continued, stupid 1000 char phone browser limit)
