Apple files voice “learning” patent

Apple has filed a patent for an application it describes as “User Profiling for Voice Input Processing”.

The technology would allow future Apple products to “learn” a users voice, allowing a variety of more in depth commands to be used on the device. With the new application, commands such as, “Find all songs by band X and band Y rated four star or higher, and add them to a playlist.”

Apple’s competitors have also shown interest in voice recognition services, with both Microsoft and Google integrating voice control into their respective platforms.
