Case study

The case

Our partner SAGA turned to Cortex to develop the voice recognition technology for a highly interactive, innovative storytelling kiosk for Loto-Québec.

The assignment

Create an outdoor interactive kiosk for people visiting Montreal public spaces where, by reading, they can unlock an immersive experience of a legend recounting the creation of the world in music and storytelling.

the solution

We used our speech recognition expertise to create a system that triggers the appropriate video and music at the right time during the reading of the story. The biggest challenge? Taking speech recognition outdoors, where the microphone would be exposed to the weather and all kinds of ambient noise. We developed solutions through testing, tuning and logistics intelligence. Thanks to the phenomenal teamwork of project creators, the final product won a 2015 Boomerang award (for technological creativity) and a 2016 Numix (for communication and promotion).
