New research from CMU, direction of voice instead of wakeword

I thought I d leave this here in case somebody is interested:

Carnegie Mellon University is doing some research into using the angle/direction of the voice projected at the microphone to determine if somebody is speaking at something like a smart speaker to improve or substitute the need for a wale word in a future implementation. Maybe something to keep an eye on.



Interesting, thanks for sharing! Such a system would definitely make conversations with a voice assistant more natural.
