Status Report #1: 9/28 (Spencer)

  • Carried out experiments on how to “jam” wake word on Siri, since we did not have Google Home/Alexa yet. Tests were successful with human voices. However, playing a voice recording of the jamming voice in a loop seemed to give around a 50% success rate. (Done with Cyrus)
  • Spoke to Prof. Stern about challenges associated with black box systems / discussed current research in speech processing. (Done with Eugene)
  • Latency testing for the program that Eugene wrote using python and pyaudio: good results. It is very fast to detect input + spit out a predefined output. This is without a neural net in the middle. Establishes that what we are doing is possible (done with Cyrus)
  • Next week: 
    • Conduct experiments with Alexa (just arrived) and Google Home (if it arrives soon). Observe if there are differences between how they are activated.
    • Discuss how to refine our solution / handle problems with professors.
    • Work on design presentation, since I am presenting it.
