Mihup delivers a human like understanding of naturally spoken queries for large, complex content domains.


The Overview

Mihup is powered by intelligent voice interfaces for any device or application. It can deliver a human like understanding of naturally spoken queries for large, complex content domains. Available as an on-premise solution or a cloud-based offering, Mihup is built on Automatic Speech Recognition (Offline and Online) in Indian languages with an AI foundation for scale and reliability in natural language processing (NLP) and information retrieval (IR).

Correct Speech Anomalies and Retrieve Correct Results

One of the biggest barriers that exist today is Man Machine Interface (MMI). The fact is that, most people are tech phobic when it comes to interactive communication. They fear being judged by a machine for their proficiency. Mihup aspires to be the solution for this. Mihup aspires to be a protocol of conversation. It wants to sit between the actors (human or machine) and interpret in a unified common language by removing personal biases or specific terminologies to generic unbiased one. E.g. if people pronounce Judisthir (a character in an Indian epic, Mahabharata) instead of Yusdisthir (which is how the web has indexed most of the topic related information), there should be a mechanism in place to correct this anomaly, perform search query and retrieve correct results.

About Us

SDK Removes Speech Anomalies for Query Parsing

Mihup is a Software Development Kit (SDK) that can be integrated to any app with ease, but it will poll in information about a user/device or a combo of the two to give a generic knowledge sharing capability across various applications. It is a learning-based system with no previous bias. However, it starts learning from modal values and then quickly converges to the personal values using personal and hive learning (based on community classification learning). It will exist as a UX where the IO is audio oriented for convergence and results and/or options are shown in the appropriate manner.

About Us

Mihup as a Chatty Operating System

Mihup is developed to work both online and offline by distributing learning locally and remotely based on usage probability and prior experience. It’s not language-based but vocabulary based. Similarly, it’s not based on a word but is based on phonetic imprint. This approach is expected to help detect emotive inclinations and context apart from the meaning of the word. Mihup acts like an interpreter for any IO in the man-machine world for four kinds of chats. In the end game, we see the possibility of Mihup becoming a ‘chatty’ Operating System or a chatty mod to Operating Systems.

Automatic Speech Recognition

Machine learning powered automatic speech recognition empowers application like voice search or speech transcription.

Speech API/SDK

Mihup’s Speech API and SDK convert spoken sentences in three Indian languages to text, easily and accurately.

Easy Integration

NLP API integrates with device or application like phones, PCs, tablets etc. with a working internet connection.
