Smartphones for several years now have had the ability to listen non-stop for wake words, like “Hey Siri” and “OK Google,” without excessive battery usage. These wake-up systems run in special, low-power processors embedded within a phone’s larger chip set. They rely on algorithms trained on a neural network to recognize a broad spectrum of voices, accents, and speech patterns. But they only recognize their wake words; more generalized speech recognition algorithms require the involvement of a phone’s more powerful processors.

Today, Qualcomm announced that Snapdragon 8885G, its latest chipset for mobile devices, will be incorporating an extra piece of software in that bit of semiconductor real estate that houses the wake word recognition engine. Created by Cambridge, U.K. startup Audio Analytic, the ai3-nano will use the Snapdragon’s low-power AI processor to listen for sounds beyond speech. Depending on the applications made available by smartphone manufacturers, the phones will be able to react to such sounds as a doorbell, water boiling, a baby’s cry, and fingers tapping on a keyboard—a library of some 50 sounds that is expected to grow to 150 to 200 in the near future.

THE INSTITUTE The new IEEE Volunteering platform enables members to search for opportunities across the organization, be it short or long term, local or remote. Those who are looking for helpers can post the positions they need to fill. The portal was developed by the IEEE Young Professionals group.

By using the platform, IEEE leaders, volunteers, and members can connect with each other according to their schedule, talent, and interest. Whether it’s student branches, technical societies, programs or initiatives, the platform can meet the needs of just about every IEEE organizational unit.
