Speak with Purpose – Stories that Listen

Speak with Purpose – Stories that Listen

“Speak with Purpose” is an applied research project created by Kotodama Fruit Juice in association with Carnegie Mellon University’s Entertainment Technology Center Professors Brenda Bakkar- Harger and Shirley Yee.

Tasked with exploring “stories that listen”, Speak with Purpose uses advanced speech recognition, virtual reality and narrative trickery to discover what possibilities exist for the future of entertainment and natural modes of interaction.

Kotodama Fruit Juice designed and built an interactive scenario utilizing the Oculus Rift, Microsoft’s Speech Platform API, and natural language processing to allow a participant to interact directly with a virtual character while also having that character respond in unique and meaningful ways based upon the the participants choices.
