Lot more left in speech to text

As you can see in the image below (done by Google CC) - the text inside the green box, you can't stop laughing once you understand that Vint Cerf was actually trying to say "free Wi-Fi service" and not " free WIFE service". This clearly shows that we have a lot more left to innovate in technology to better understand ourselves...

May be not pure speech to text helps analyze the conversation. The engine doing the work of analyzing should be powered with some intelligence and understand who is talking, their profile, the context in which the talk is going on, the audience etc etc... I am sure there are lots of companies working on this space.

But for now; with the current state of technology...we could get more such examples to mock at...
