Voice of Tomorrow: Senstone’s Vision for a Transformed Future

Senstone represents a transformative leap in note-taking and information capture. We strive to redefine how people document their life experiences and insights in real-time. Our mission is to ensure that no crucial detail is forgotten, allowing users to remain focused on what truly matters without succumbing to distractions from smartphone apps. Senstone serves as a long-term memory, preserving details about who you are, how you work and what you like to record.

 

Today this innovation has far-reaching implications for healthcare and wellness professionals, consultants and counselors, executives and managers. But what lies ahead in our vision for the future?

The Future of Senstone

 

We see the future in boosting the use of voice because it’s the most natural way people communicate. Speaking has been around forever, while typing has only been popular for a few decades with the rise of typewriters and computer keyboards. Keyboards haven’t really changed since the 1800s, which is starting to hold us back. We want tech to fit us, not the other way around. 

 

We envision next generations where voice technology regains its meaningfulness. Where it’s not just a tool but a fast, natural transformative force in our daily lives. 

 

In it’s core, our mission is to reinvent the way people interact with technology. We aim to be at the forefront of this ecosystem by enhancing human capacity and making lives more meaningful.

 

In the next 100 years, we see Senstone as a life-changing entity. Our vision goes beyond just creating innovative products. It’s about fostering a voice-centric culture that empowers individuals in their interactions with computers and each other.

The Ultimate Goal of the Voice-Centered Approach

 

Each of us is unique, with our own stories, experiences and ways of living. At Senstone, we aim to celebrate these individual narratives by leveraging AI. Through personalized text improvements, automatic reminders and tailored experiences based on each person’s writing style, we strive to enhance their daily lives.

 

In this envisioned future, people will lead more productive, focused lives with improved time management. Senstone’s mission is to capture the essence of these unique stories, guiding people toward a more fulfilled life and enhanced productivity at work. By utilizing AI to preserve and share our experiences, we are confident that individuals can unlock their full potential and positively impact the world around them.

A (Very) Brief History of Speech Recognition

Speech recognition has grown to be an important part of the technological society. Today we take a step back to look at how it first appeared and evolved over the years.

 

“Why Is It Always Bell Labs?”

 

The first successful speech recognition device was developed by Bell Laboratories (New Jersey) and finished in 1952. The developer team (S. Balashek, R. Biddulph & K. H. Davis) called their invention “Audrey”.

 

By the standards of the time, “Audrey” was a miracle. Like all early computers, the system took up a lot of space and had a rather limited set of functions, i. e. it was only capable of one – albeit revolutionary – thing.

 

“Audrey” could reliably recognize nine words spoken into the receiver. Those words were numbers: 1 to 9, meant to make life a bit easier for toll operators. The system was not the making of a wild scientific genius. “Audrey” had grown from the decades-long research performed by Bell Laboratories since the 1920s.

 

“Audrey” had proven voice recognition to be a promising technology for various fields, and so the race was on.

 

Looking For Answers

 

The 1960s were eventful for all things voice recognition. Several entities from around the globe, including IBM and the Soviet science community, made independent improvements to the technology.

 

Was it impressive to the general public, though?

 

Well… Not really.

 

The “Shoebox” machine by IBM could recognize a whopping 16 words in English and had little success. In 1969, Bell Laboratories discontinued their speech recognition research, because the progress seemed too slow.

 

Still, the idea turned out too tempting to pass up. In the 1970s, the US Department of Defence (DARPA) started their own research program.

 

Between 1971 and 1976, DARPA’s Speech Understanding Research program produced “Harpy”, a system capable of discerning 1,000 words. The development of “Harpy” involved scientists from multiple American institutes (Carnegie Mellon, Stanford) and companies (BBN, IBM).

 

The Success

 

Speech recognition made it big in the 1980s – and it’s been growing more and more popular ever since.

 

Voice recognition went from a cutting edge technology funded by DARPA to being sold at street corners fast. The 1980s saw the first voice-controlled toys and voice activated typewriters.

 

Expensive? No doubt.

 

Rare? Absolutely.

 

About to get cheaper and available to everyone with a phone? Yes and yes.

 

Soon the market started growing exponentially. Speech recognition spread to software. The advertised accuracy reached 80% in the early 2000s, but you still had to pay almost $10,000 to buy the program.

 

Further improvements in technology made voice recognition faster and cheaper. With the new algorithms, even low-budget smartphones can handle the task easily. It took us less than 80 years to get from room-sized “Audrey” to Siri.

 

In 2022 speech recognition is heading toward the next milestones.

 

We are about to deliver 100% accuracy for each and every user. What’s more, soon your devices are going to be able to recognize individual voices. This is a huge opportunity for both consumer and developer.

 

Finally: what new things would future advanced voice applications let us do? What industries and existing devices will it transform?  Let us know if the comments below or at our Facebook page.

Kickstarter For Tech Startups In 2022

You often hear about Kickstarter and tech startups as this match made in heaven, startup founders attributing a large part of their success to crowdfunding. Is Kickstarter really that great for startup projects? Should you consider it?

 

Let’s find out.

 

Crowdfunding? Yes, Please!

 

Kickstarter and technology or not, people love fundraising for things they feel passionate about.  This includes anything from VR headsets and 3D printers to board games and cool watches, especially if you get to secure the product fresh off the presses.

 

Here are some numbers, because everyone loves numbers:

  • the crowdfunding market was worth ~$13.5 billion in 2021
  • it is projected to reach $28.2 billion by 2028
  • i. e. the market is going to double
  • fully funded projects have an average of 300 backers
  • the average pledge is $96 (again, this is for a fully funded project)

 

This means a whole lot of people are interested in crowdfunding. It’s getting trendier. More and more customers are familiar with the concept. For both tech geeks and entrepreneurs, this is great news.

 

Why Kickstarter Is Special

 

If you look for popular crowdfunding platforms, Kickstarter is always on top of the list. In fact, you might have found this page while researching it specifically.

 

All because Kickstarter is huge.

 

No, wait.

 

Kickstarter is HUGE.

 

The community has grown over the years. These days there are marketing agencies dealing with crowdfunding on Kickstarter and nothing else, which is pretty telling.

 

Is Kickstarter a good place if you look to fund your technology project? Let’s check our numbers again.

 

Turns out, among the 16 million active backers there is a high demand for technology. The projects in this category raised a total of $1.22 billion since January 2022, second only to Games.

 

The fun part? The average pledge for Technology equals around $520. For the Games category mentioned above, this number is $160. Backers in the Technology category do not mind paying more to get their hands on innovative products.

 

You Make the Rules

 

The Kickstarter community appreciates things unique and creative, so you can expect as much freedom as possible. On Kickstarter, the project creator has full control of their campaign; great power, great responsibility & all that jazz.

 

  • use your own analytics tools to assess the campaign
  • get detailed statistics from Kickstarter (in real time)
  • customize the campaign page design at any point
  • communicate with users via updates, comments, direct messaging, etc.
  • team up with other creators to advertise efficiently

 

The only standard is transparency. Other than that, you can raise any sum for any product and advertise the campaign wherever. This is great for tech products.

 

Everyone Is Ready To Like You

 

Probably the most important point here. The secret advantage of a crowdfunding platform as big as Kickstarter is simple: users are biased towards your project.

 

 

Remember the 16 million active backers? Well, 6 million out of the 16 are repeat backers.

 

Have you advertised your campaign beforehand? Of course you have, and now that it’s up on Kickstarter most people perceive the product as innovative even before they’ve read the specs.

 

The crowdfunding culture creates spaces for open-minded consumers who are more likely to pay attention to “the cool stuff” and are proactive when it comes to improving their daily life.

 

If you are considering crowdfunding for your technology startup, Kickstarter might just be the perfect choice for you.

 

Last year we raised $112,000 on Kickstarter and made our portable-smart speech-to-text recorder a reality. Want to know more? Check out our home page at senstone.io.

Neuralink or Voice? Increasing Human Output Bandwidth

 

It’s all over the Internet these days: Neuralink, voice assistants, voice interface, science fiction coming true. The idea that gets everyone so excited is human-computer communication. The prospect of making it fast and organic.

 

Although it’s a bit early to say, there seem to be two main approaches to the problem of interaction with the machine. The first approach advocates brain-computer interface. If you’re thinking brain implants, this is exactly what it’s all about. The second approach favors literal communication, with algorithms making sense of human speech and “understanding” the context.

 

What Are We Dealing With?

 

First of all, let’s see how much these two types of technology already affect consumers around the world. As of 2022, voice technology is getting increasingly common. The reason for this is simple: mobile devices. They are everywhere!

 

Pretty much every single smartphone supports voice search, translation, or typing, all convenient and ever-improving tools. Besides, you can relegate the heavy lifting to a cloud server somewhere in Sweden, Canada, or Japan, and turn even the cheapest of phones into a real powerhouse.

 

As for brain-computer interface, currently the most famous example of the technology would be Neuralink. According to the description on the official website, Neuralink is “the first neural implant that will let you control a computer or mobile device anywhere you go.” Although not available for purchase just yet, it is slated to enter the market by the end of 2022.

 

Unsurprisingly, Neuralink has competition. Multiple companies try to achieve the same goal: brain-computer interface, no holds barred. The few products that have been launched, however, are not suitable for large audiences as they do not actually allow you to “control a computer”. Most of them are intended for people with paralysis.

 

Racing For the Future

 

Between Neuralink and voice interface, which one is going to come out on top? Spoiler: both. 

 

 

Neuralink

Voice

non-invasive

x

low cost of device

x

control devices remotely

always at hand

works in any environment

x

available for different platforms

?

 

The fact that you need to undergo a surgery to use Neuralink is going to be a deterrent to many. In the near future, until the technology is perfected, we shouldn’t expect a brain implant craze. However, Neuralink can make the public more accepting of the brain-computer interface and create new opportunities.

 

Voice technology, on the other hand, is less flashy but more flexible. Pretty much any device can be fitted with voice recognition. It comes cheaper, too. The disadvantage would be, of course, you having to talk out loud to use voice tech.

 

Our prediction? Neuralink and voice technology are going to perfectly complement each other. There is no life-or-death competition here.

 

Why?

 

It’s on the Neuralink official website: The initial goal of our technology will be to help people with paralysis to regain independence through the control of computers and mobile devices. Our devices are designed to give people the ability to communicate more easily via text or speech synthesis, to follow their curiosity on the web, or to express their creativity through photography, art, or writing apps.

 

What happens next? It’s hard to say. We’ll wait until Neuralink launches worldwide and see. One thing you can rely on: there is no stopping invention.

Good luck!

Type With Your Mind, Not Your Hands

It has been 57 years since Alvin Lucier used his brain waves to manipulate percussion instruments and create Music for Solo Performer (1965), one of the earliest and boldest experiments with brain-machine interface. Unsurprisingly, the system Lucier used was rather clunky, and his adventure seemed outlandish to many. However, the idea of unleashing human creativity was – still is – in the air.

 

Once you dream up something that exciting, nothing can stop you.

 

Scientists all over the world are dedicated to bridging the gap between man and machine, one way or another. Are they succeeding? To answer this question, think small.

  • voice search on your smartphone
  • eye trackers for gaming
  • educational AR apps
  • voice assistants
  • mind-controlled prosthetics

 

None of those things existed when Lucier first wrote a music piece with his brain waves. It took humanity less than 60 years to develop all this amazing technology! On top of that, all the cutting-edge inventions became common in a very short span of time.

 

The Big Goal

 

Meanwhile, Elon Musk promises we are going to be able to control computers with our thoughts within the decade. More and more people use speech-to-text to take notes. Voice interface has been making its way into the car industry.

 

Are we going to eventually ditch the crutches? Keyboards, controllers, buttons, switches, one by one? This question has been haunting us forever. Thinking about it made us come up with Senstone.

 

As of now, the regular keyboard moved into the background a bit with smartphones overtaking the market. Touch screens are perfectly convenient for many tasks, not to mention more versatile.

 

Good news? Sure. Still, something is missing. That something is: communication.

 

No matter how good you are at typing, there is no way to make it truly seamless. Keyboards steal our time. They restrict our mobility. There is nothing natural about squinting at the screen. If only we could think at the computer real loud and make it so.

 

 

Where our minds are capable of miracles, the technology does not quite match up – well, yet.

 

Small Steps, Giant Leaps

 

A wise man once said, ‘There is only one way to eat an elephant: a bite at a time.’ The principle applies to changing the world as much as sorting emails.

 

Every time a solution is implemented to make a process more

  • seamless
  • natural
  • easy

it’s a step in the right direction.

 

Eventually there is going to be no place for something as unwieldy as your brand new phone. Bold concepts are going to become reality. We are going to collectively kill the keyboard.

 

Our Contribution

 

Talking got humans from pushing carts to flying jets, and speech is faster than writing or typing.

 

This is the reason why voice technology is so important for better human-machine interaction. Manipulating computers with your voice is as close as it gets to the perfect UI.

 

Since typing is a huge part of daily life, we have decided to streamline it. No more screens. No more having to physically type out words. Senstone Scripter is our way to precipitate the future.

Good luck!

6 Tips To Double Your Productivity With Remote Work

With more and more people getting vaccinated – 37% of the world population is no joke, – restrictions are lifting, yet we exist in a strange remote work limbo. Some offices are open three days a week while others are back to normal, and some are fully remote.

 

Although there is hope and an expectation that businesses will return to their pre-pandemic operations, this will perhaps not happen soon enough. 

 

While many jobs cannot be remote – hotel management, care-taking, delivery, home repair and airport management, to name a few, there are just as many jobs that benefit from a remote or hybrid work model that profit employer and employee – jobs in digital, e-commerce, engineering, education, entertainment, and more. 

 

With remote work, small and midsize businesses can be productive in the new normal, sometimes even more so than before the pandemic. This mutual benefit is not something that one lets go of easily. 

 

1. Hire from abroad, spend less.

Renting an office, arranging for the equipment, then looking for talent in your area… Should I continue? Sometimes it’s cheaper to hire a guy from another continent, sitting in his flat, with his own computer and all the skills you need.

2. Work from home, earn more.

For many, remote work can be the only way to cross above the average salary. With long-term remote-work environments encouraged by the market, people from developing countries and isolated areas have a better chance at higher income.

3. Make time management easy for everyone involved.

As absurd as it sounds, managing activities remotely is often more effective than doing it in person. Sharing to-do lists you know your co-workers can see has done wonders to the general productivity.

4. Use time zones to your advantage.

International companies can effectively work 24/7 by recruiting based on the location of the employee. Of course, customer service is the most obvious winner in this respect.

5. Capitalize on the change in public perception.

The pandemic normalized reaching out to professionals from across the globe. For service providers, it’s a great opportunity to expand the client base. For consumers, it means more options.

6. The structure is already in place.

Covid-19 forced businesses into adopting new tools, so by now, they are commonplace. You need zero extra effort to invite a remote worker to the team.

Break the Dopamine Cycle With Scripter

Senstone scripter voice assistant

Scripter is a wearable voice recorder, and dopamine is a neural transmitter. The two are related in more ways than you think.

 

How to trick your brain using Scripter? And how does it work?

 

What is the dopamine cycle, and why does it need breaking? Why do so many people these days talk about it? Read on and find out.

 

Senstone Scripter

 

Dopamine is an organic chemical released by the neurons in our brain. Being a neurotransmitter, it transmits all kinds of signals. In popular culture, dopamine is sometimes known as the “pleasure hormone”, but it’s a very simplistic view.

 

It would be much more fitting to call dopamine the motivation chemical. 

 

Dopamine is released into your system when you anticipate an enjoyable event.

 

The event does not have to be anything major. Pressing a button to see a video game character shoot a blaster at aliens is just as good as witnessing your favorite team win the championship. In fact, it’s more pleasurable due to the simple reality of it being quick and easy to achieve.

 

This is where it gets dangerous.

 

The addiction nobody wants to talk about

 

Dopamine cycle is a pleasure-withdrawal loop you can develop by having too much of a good thing. Momentary pleasure increases your dopamine, which then drops, and you start craving the same activity that had caused the release of the chemical. This way, your brain encourages you to stick to the tasks you find satisfying.

And so you do it again.

And again.

One more time.

Just a bit more.

 

If this sounds like an addiction to you, then you are correct. A perfectly normal neurotransmitter can go haywire and make you associate certain things with pleasure – if you let it.

The most common “addiction” caused by the dopamine cycle?

Data.

Notifications.

Updates.

 

The intense pull to chase instant gratification brought to you by yet another view, yet another repost, yet another animation played in front of your eyes.

 

The habit is stupidly simple to reinforce, so it’s no wonder the internet is the top procrastination spot and entertainment source for most people in 2021. 

 

The good news is that experiencing the information-fueled dopamine cycle does not mean you should toss your phone out of the window and go live under a rock. The cycle can be broken, provided you create the distraction-free environment to “detox” from the stream of feel-good stimuli.

 

This is where Scripter makes its entrance.

 

A wearable recorder with no screen to speak of and a single button, Scripter can help you with the successful dopamine detox in several ways.

 

  • With Scripter, there can be no distractions. The device is physically incapable of displaying images or receiving notifications – and this is a good thing. You can hide your phone; out of sight, out of mind.
  • Stay productive while off the grid. If you find digital detox impossible due to there being just too many things you have to be working on, Scripter is your cheat code to the whole system. Now you can work without typing or even looking at the screen.
  • Long recording sessions. This feature helps you focus without jumping from memo to memo. If the focus is there, you can record a ridiculous amount of text in one sitting (source: experience).
  • Trick your brain. By making Scripter easy to use, we have also managed to make it more appealing to the dopamine-starved brain than scrolling away on your phone. We have turned the instant gratification principle on its head – and it worked!

 

As a productivity and mindfulness tool, Scripter is designed to help you reinforce only the good habits. 

  • Efficiency
  • Focus
  • Dedication
  • Flexibility
  • Creativity

 

Scripter encourages you to take notes anytime, anywhere. Create short memos and to-do lists – or record whole chapters of your newest book. Use it as a digital diary to preserve your happiest memories – or log your business meetings whenever you like.

Senstone App and Scripter

The long-awaited launch of Scripter has shown just how much the new device has changed compared to the first wearable recorder by Senstone. But what about the app?

Our users have grown accustomed to the Senstone app over the years, and the launch is a good reason for them to be asking whether they should expect any dramatic changes or updates. 

In this post, we are going to address your concerns, the best we can at this point.

 

Senstone App In 2021

As of now, Senstone app is available on Play Store (Android) and App Store (iOS). Its primary function is to accompany Senstone devices. The app handles transcription, storage, sorting, and sharing of the notes taken with your Senstone recorder. 

Another useful feature of the app is that you can record notes directly, using your phone.

Accurate is the premium version of our subscription. Just like the free app, it’s available on Play Store and App Store. In addition to the features included in the “default” Senstone app, Accurate offers the following features:

  • flawless voice-to-text transcription
  • personal dictionary
  • spell checking & punctuation
  • highlights of the words our system is not so sure about (usually proper nouns)
  • paragraphs & abbreviations
  • location tags

For the detailed comparison of Basic and Accurate, visit this page.

 

The Recent Update

You have probably noticed the transcription quality for the Basic plan has improved. This is due to the update we have implemented a couple of weeks ago across all platforms.

With the update, transcription has become much more reliable. The upgraded software differentiates words significantly better than the previous version. This allows for remarkable results, and now you can be sure the audio will translate into text as accurately as possible.

 

Scripter and the Future of the Senstone App

As you probably know, Scripter has a new microphone and records 16bit  WAV audio files at 16kHz, as opposed to the 8bit recordings by the first Senstone device. This alone is going to boost transcription quality, as better audio makes it easier for the software to pick up individual sounds.

You are going to be able to connect your Scripter to the Senstone app like you would connect the original Senstone. We promise full support of Scripter.

Moreover, we are not planning to rebrand the app – at least for now. The launch of Scripter is not going to interfere with your favorite UI.

We are not imposing any limitations on the users of the “old” version of the recorder. We are going to support it for as long as we can. 

The Basic version remains free for everyone, regardless of language, platform, or location.

If you have any further questions, please drop us a line at team@senstone.io, and we will do our best to help you.

Stay productive!

Scripter: What No Phone Can Do

Voice Assistant

Scripter, the new wearable by Senstone, can record audio and transcribe voice into text without you ever needing to reach for the smartphone.

scripter

Let’s face it, we are bound to our phones and even though most people agree it’s a bad thing, there’s nothing we can do about it; or is there?

 

In the world of screens, updates, and notifications, Scripter is a huge step toward freedom. Where any other device would demand you to tweak a setting or switch to a different mode, Scripter does its best to remain invisible – right up until the moment you want to capture a stray thought; and then you simply tap the only button it has without looking.

 

This is nothing like my iPhone. While I may be carrying a technological miracle in my pocket, it cannot shrink to the size of a button and make it so I don’t have to get distracted.

 

So You Want To Take A Note…

Scripter

Your Phone

1. Tap the button.

1. Find the phone.

2. Speak.

2. Unlock the screen.

3. Tap the button again.

3. Find the notes app.

 

3a. Get sidetracked by notifications.

 

4. Open the app.

 

5. Spend the next 5 minutes typing a note (bonus points if you are on the move).

 

5a. Get sidetracked by contemplating your previous notes.

 

6. Save the note.

 

7. Close the app.

 

8. Lock the screen.

 

9. Put away the phone.

 

This right here is why Scripter is so good at what it does. Designed for the task of recording and managing notes, this tiny digital secretary doesn’t try to be a jack of all trades, which makes it miles more efficient than the alternative.

Scripter senstone

As of September 2021, Scripter is in the pre-launch phase, with the prototype ready and the Kickstarter page about to go live (click here to check it out). Senstone has an impeccable track record when it comes to delivering on the promises made during the ad campaign, and the streak is to go on; powerful and innovative, Scripter is set for success. It’s going to be exactly the helper a lot of people need in their busy, hectic lives.
