AT&T Watson speech recognition Engine

AT&T Labs has been holding events and announcing that they will be opening up their Watson speech recognition technology to developers.   Though Watson has been open to licensing for years now (Vlingo inked their licensing deal with AT&T in 2009, for instance), the release of the APIs means that even more developers will have access to AT&T’s voice engine.   In that vain, I thought I would troll over to the AT&T Mobile Apps Area for Developers.   They have a Mobile App Planner and a few other resources  that are worth reviewing.   You’ll need to pick a development paradign  or you can go right for the HTML5 sample code, if it is still there by the time you read this.

The AT&T API Platform SDK for HTML5 seems to bring up a Sencha Touch introduction along with some guides for Java, Ruby, and PHP Server side programming.

Here is an exerpt…

HTML5 SDK Server

The AT&T API Platform SDK for HTML5 provides examples to address cross domain access and other security concerns. The SDK provides a proxy between the Sencha Touch application and the AT&T APIs. It also provides appropriate methods to request the OAuth login sequence, fetch an access token, and make requests to the AT&T APIs.

The HTML5 SDK Server layer has been implemented in three popular languages: Java, Ruby, and PHP.

The implementation in each language provides a consistent HTTP API for Client access. The HTTP API allows Clients to connect to any of the server implementations without modification.

The code is designed to run with a minimum number of external dependencies, to make integration into your specific environment more conveniently. However, depending on the language and development tools used in your environment, modifications may be required to the provided proxy code.”
