Voiced by Polly

At the moment, I’m happy to announce the provision of Amazon Chime SDK name analytics, a brand new set of capabilities that helps make it simpler and price efficient to document and generate insights on real-time audio calls: transcription, voice tone evaluation, and speaker search. We’ve additionally improved the Amazon Chime SDK part of the AWS Administration Console to allow you to combine machine studying (ML)-based providers, resembling these new name analytics capabilities or Amazon Transcribe into your audio functions in just some steps.

Voice Analytics: Voice Tone Evaluation and Speaker Search
Voice analytics delivers real-time insights into audio conversations. It helps detect and classify contributors expressing a constructive, impartial, or adverse tone. Sometimes, enterprises working in regulated industries have obligations to document or wish to analyze conversations between staff and their enterprise companions, clients, or suppliers.

Voice tone evaluation makes use of ML to extract sentiment from a speech sign based mostly on a joint evaluation of lexical and linguistic data in addition to acoustic and tonal data. Voice tone evaluation for dwell calls are delivered within the knowledge lake of your alternative, on prime of which you’ll create your individual dashboards to visualise the info.

Let’s take an instance from the finance business. Buying and selling room supervisors are typically required to document all of the buying and selling conversations occurring on the ground. Voice tone evaluation helps them meet their regulatory necessities. They’ll additionally ship these insights to the merchants to assist to enhance their productiveness. However finance shouldn’t be the one business that should document and analyze calls. We’ve got acquired related requests from clients in Enterprise Course of Outsourcing (BPO), public sector, healthcare, telecom, and insurance coverage industries.

Alongside with voice tone evaluation, your functions can now profit from speaker search to assist match audio system to an current database. It solely requires a brief pattern to acknowledge a speaker based mostly on their voice saved in a database of recognized voices. Speaker search helps your functions expedite caller lookup and enrich name information and transcripts with identification attribution. Speaker search delivers a urged distinctive inner identifier for the speaker and a confidence rating. The choice to match present the speaker with a recognized speaker out of your group is as much as your utility. A few of our clients plan to make use of speaker seek for real-time speaker labeling on communication occurring over buying and selling turrets, that are shared units.

Integration with AI Companies within the AWS Administration Console
We wish to make it simpler for builders so as to add these capabilities into current telephony functions with out requiring experience in telephony, cloud infrastructure, or AI.

Because of this we added a easier-to-use graphical configuration within the Amazon Chime SDK part of the console. On the console, you may select the AWS AI service you wish to use to research real-time audio knowledge: voice analytics, Amazon Transcribe, or Amazon Transcribe Name Analytics. Whether or not you select to make use of voice analytics or Amazon Transcribe to generate insights, you don’t have to put in writing any integration code. We handle the integrations with AWS AI providers and your voice-based or telephony functions. The console helps you outline the place you wish to ship the analytics knowledge: an Amazon Kinesis stream or an Amazon Easy Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket. Voice analytics can ship real-time notifications to a operate deployed on AWS Lambda, or an SQS queue or Amazon Easy Notification Service (Amazon SNS) subject.

To visualise insights, name analytics additionally delivers analyses to a knowledge lake of your alternative. You possibly can then use Amazon QuickSight or Tableau to construct dashboards and get insights from real-time media. These dashboards will be embedded in apps, wikis, and portals. In fact, we don’t depart you alone together with your knowledge. You possibly can obtain prebuilt dashboards as AWS CloudFormation templates to deploy into your individual AWS account. The hyperlink to obtain these templates is on the market on the console.

Lastly, name analytics can generate real-time alerts by posting occasions to Amazon EventBridge. You possibly can route these occasions to any vacation spot of your alternative, in your AWS account or supported third-party functions.

When utilizing name analytics, you may scale back the preliminary venture time to generate insights from real-time audio from months to days.

How It Works
I’d like to indicate you the way it works.

On the Amazon Chime SDK part of the console, I open Configuration underneath Name Analytics on the left-side menu. Then, I choose Create configuration.

A screenshot of the Amazon Chime SDK console page.

I give a reputation to my configuration. Optionally, I may affiliate tags.

Amazon Chime SDK - Configuration first step

Beneath Configure analytics service, I can select between Amazon Chime SDK voice analytics or Amazon Transcribe providers to analyse calls. For this demo, I choose Voice analytics.

Amazon Chime SDK - Configuration second step

I configure the place to ship the evaluation. Voice analytics outcomes are all the time despatched to Kinesis. I specify a Kinesis knowledge stream I created beforehand. Once I wish to use a enterprise intelligence software resembling Quicksight to create a dashboard with analytics outcomes, I additionally specify an S3 bucket to obtain the evaluation.

The console additionally provides me the hyperlink to the CloudFormation templates I can use to create the voice analytics dashboards.

Lastly, I select a Lambda operate, SQS queue, or SNS subject that can obtain notifications of occasions resembling when the analytics can be found, a brand new voice enrollment happens, or the results of a voice verification. Within the later case, the payload seems as comply with:

    ...frequent to all occasions...
    "detail-type": "SpeakerSearchStatus",
    "element": {
        "taskId": "uuid",
        "detailStatus": "IdentificationSuccessful",
        "speakerSearchDetails" : {
            "outcomes": [
                    "voiceProfileId": "guid",
                    "confidenceScore": "0.94",
                    "voiceProfileId": "guid",
                    "confidenceScore": "0.92",
                    "voiceProfileId": "guid",
                    "confidenceScore": "0.91",
                ... (up to 10)
        "isCaller": false,
        "voiceConnectorId": "guid",
        "transactionId": "guid"

        ...particulars from Voice connector

For this demo, I select an current SQS queue.

Amazon Chime SDK - Configuration third step

Beneath Consent acknowledgment, I choose all of the packing containers and choose Subsequent.

Amazon Chime SDK - Configuration second step consent

The following step is simply obtainable once I didn’t specify any analytics service within the earlier step. It permits us to configure voice recordings. Recordings can be found when no analytics are chosen.

Beneath Configure entry permissions, I select a beforehand created AWS Identification and Entry Administration (IAM) function permitting the Amazon Chime SDK to entry the opposite AWS providers I configured: the Kinesis knowledge stream, S3 bucket, and Lambda operate, SQS queue, or SNS subject. The console could create an IAM function for me if I don’t have one already.

Amazon Chime SDK - Configuration four step

The following step is on the market if I chosen Amazon Transcribe service underneath Configure analytics service. It permits me to configure real-time alerts via EventBridge. I could configure guidelines to ship messages based mostly on key phrase match, sentiment detected, or challenge detection.

The ultimate step is Evaluate and Create my configuration. I overview the configuration particulars after which, I choose Create configuration.

Lastly, I hyperlink this configuration to a voice connector underneath the Voice Connector part, on the Streaming tab.

That’s it! As I discussed earlier, no glue between AWS providers or AI information is required.

After the info arrives on Kinesis or your S3 bucket, you may level your most popular enterprise reporting resolution at it. While you use the QuickSight template we offer, you may get began in minutes with a high-level overview and a deep-dive view, as proven on the next screenshot.
