Personalized intent recognition that learns from context, behavior and speech, in any language learns frequent phrases from an individual or a family, to power personalized, noise-robust voice UIs for command and control environments.


Our patented technology goes back to how children learn to talk, through examples in context rather than through text. This gives our speech recognition engine the flexibility to understand natural phrases reliably across languages, accents, and noise environments, whether that be a smart home, connected car, wearable or virtual reality headset.


Fluent learns in all accents and languages, including those that have no associated text corpora. It also lets people switch languages or combine several in the same sentence.

Reliable and noise-robust

Learning from users in their specific acoustic environments allows Fluent to achieve 95-100% accuracy across a variety of noise conditions, after only a few example phrases.


People should not have to learn hard-coded phrases from user manuals. We allow each user in a home or car to speak naturally and create fun voice shortcuts on the fly, without textual input.


Fluent works offline, sidestepping connectivity and privacy issues. It has a small footprint suitable for embedded systems. The cloud is accessed for updates or to recognize infrequent phrases.
