Dave Grannan CEO, and Mike Phillips, CTO, of a new company that’ll come out this fall give us a sneak peak at technology that’ll come to cell phones that’ll let you talk with them.

    […] As explained in this video, Mobeus follows the network-based model in the sense that the cell phone contains a small ‘client’ that performs the voice capture (end-pointing, compression, etc.), which then processes the utterance on a network of powerful servers and then returns the results back to the client.
