SpeakQL: Towards Speech-driven Multi-Modal Querying

Automatic speech recognition (ASR) systems currently in use work well for routine tasks such as posing a question to SIRI (Apple) or Alexa (Amazon), but do not interface with more complex datasets. Complex datasets take into account when the user considers a speech-driven system to query structured data, but these require new approaches. Some of these approaches have used new querying modalities such as visual, touch-based and natural language interfaces (NLIs) whereby user commands are translated into the Structured Query Language (SQL). Unfortunately these new proposals are not suitable for complex datasets.

Oceanic monitoring helps coastal communities, economies, and ecosystems thrive. The coastlines and open oceans prove to be very important to maritime countries for recreation, mineral and energy exploitation, shipping, weather forecasting and national security. As solar power, GPS, and telecomm improvements have been made, directional wave buoys have emerged and set the standard in wave monitoring. Non-directional and directional wave measurements are of high interest to users because of the importance of wave monitoring for successful marine operations. Wave data and climatological information derived from the data are also used for a variety of engineering and scientific applications.
