Automation has huge potential for making independent living easier for people with disabilities.
For those living with any kind of disability, some of the most mundane, everyday tasks can become extremely difficult. Everyday living can often be the hardest to deal with for those faced with physical and mental challenges—even their home wouldn't be a reprieve from these struggles. Until now.

This is a shame for twitch as I love the premise behind it, but it is the reality of business online that the more successful you become the more of a target you are for hackers. #games #security

How to reverse-engineer Apple iPhone 4S "Siri" - Cracking Siri ?

Cracking Siri | 15-Nov-2011 by Plamoni

https://github.com/applidium/Cracking-Siri

How to get the necessary bits -

• Generate a certificate authority
• Add it to your iPhone
• Sign a certificate for "guzzoni.apple.com" using that authority. This should produce the ".crt" and ".key" files your server will need.
• Setup a fake DNS server that resolves "guzzoni.apple.com" to your own machine, and configure your iPhone to use it.
• Start the "siriServer.rb" server. You will need some ruby gem installed. I have tested it only on Mac OS X 10.7.2 with Ruby 1.9.2.
• Make Siri dictation request, for example from the Notes.app application. On the server, this will dump all the "interesting" bits (X-Ace-Host identifier, sessionData and such).
• Use them to replace instances of "COMMENTED_OUT" in the code

How to do speech-to-text using a non-iPhone4S machine -

• Record your voice into whatever format you like
• Use ffmpeg to convert the sound to raw sound samples (see the text file for the exact command line). Name it "tentative.raw"
• Install the speex library and its header. On Mac OS X, "brew install speex" once you've setup Homebrew
• Compile the speexEnc.m file (gcc speexEnc.m -lspeex -framework Foundation -o speexEnc)
• Run ./speexEnc. It will produce a input.sif file with speex packets the Ruby script will be able to read
• Run the "Siri.old.inline.rb" script. Et voilà !

Sometimes innovation runs in different directions to our imagination.
It's about risk, technology and geopolitics.

Ursula Morgenstern one important piece of the Diversity jigsaw.  Tech Companies need to make the transition to a more balanced workforce to really build upon past successes.
One senior woman will not make the difference. We need women to be visible to the workforce at all levels on a daily basis to be far more accessible role models....

Wow last time I looked at this technology it had not been miniaturised and was going to require hugely intrusive surgery, this looks like a big step forward although there is still a long way to go.

Story

Mad about tech! Love gadgets, mobile and music, I work with Assitive Technology
Introduction
I live and work in West London with my wife and two small white dogs.

I am fascinated by the potential of mobile computing.

I want to apply technology to make the world a better place so for the last decade I have been working with Assistive Technology and Mobiles.
I now work for Atos as the Lead on Accessibility & Assistive Technology. If it is work stuff you are after you can find me on linkedin.

From time to time I blog about stuff that is of interest to me and that I cannot express within the confines of a tweet. I like to debate and engage so take a look.

I am a twitter-holic and am frequently to be found on Twitter where I am @neilmilliken
