I’m excited to share that this morning Mozilla is introducing Project Common Voice, a crowdsourced initiative to build an open source data set for voice recognition apps.
That sounds wonky, but you use voice recognition apps all the time. They’re behind the services from Google, Apple and Amazon that recognize your voice and make your devices do things on command. Example: “Siri, download Firefox!” 🙂
Experts think voice recognition applications represent the next big thing. The problem is the current ecosystem favors Big Tech and leaves out the next wave of innovators. These are the people who will take this incredible technology to the next level.
