ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for sale patents disclosing systems and methods of speech interface and natural language processing with integrated diction and command/control functionality, available from Great Northern Research, LLC. This portfolio is offered as part of the Internet of Things IP Auction, with a bidding deadline of April 23rd, 2015.

“This portfolio, with early priority dates from 2007, is a perfect fit for the Internet of Things, Smart Home, and mobile universes where intuitive, hands-free means of interaction are in high demand,” says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.

Key Characteristics & Benefits
With a 2007 priority date, the disclosed portfolio describes systems and methods to improve performance and user-acceptability of speech interfaces, providing an intuitive, hands-free way to communicate with and control automated devices, including:

  • A natural language, single mode, speech interface, in which a multitasking operating system receives speech inputs that may either be command and control or data for processing as “text”, and logically parses the received speech to disambiguate command syntax. (US 8,165,886 - Priority Date: 10-04-2007)
  • A multifaceted graphic user interface with a plurality of shells or layers that enables speech-based interaction with applications and processes that do not necessarily have native support for speech input. The system provides separate “focus” for natural language speech interaction and pointing device focus, and automatically switches speech focus in a context sensitive manner. (US 8,595,642 - Priority Date: 10-04-2007)
  • A system and method for processing speech input comprising a speech recognizer and a logical command processor. A speech recognizer receives input from a user, and when a command is identified in the speech input, a representation of the speech input is stored for subsequent processing, provided the command meets conditions that require additional processing. The user is prompted to supply missing information, and subsequent user input is added to the command structure until the command input is aborted or the command structure reaches sufficient completeness to enable execution of the command. (US 8,219,407 - Priority Date: 12-27-2007)
