Instantly Recognizable, Stephen Hawking’s Voice Is Now Open-Source
Anyone can freely download Intel's ACAT to build upon the framework with new user interfaces and sensing modalities
Stephen Hawking’s iconic robotic-voice has been opened up for developers and anyone with a smartphone or Windows computer to download. The Assistive Context-Aware Toolkit, ACAT, allows Hawking to speak, by detecting the movement of his cheekbones. Intel has built on the program over the years, and are opening the project for other developers to apply or improve upon.
