Laurel vs Yanny: AI speech recognition leaders Google, Amazon, Sonix, and IBM can’t agree either

Sonix, an emerging leader in speech recognition, compared its speech recognition engine to the biggest players in this space including Google, Amazon, and IBM.

The results are mixed with Google & Sonix recognizing “Laurel”. Amazon recognizing “Year Old” which is closer to Yanny. And IBM recognizing both “Yeah role” and “Laurel” which is like a mix of Yanny and Laurel.

To conduct the test, Sonix used the Yanny vs. Laurel version that Cloe Feldman first posted on Twitter.
