QUALITY INSPECTORS AT HUGHES AIRCRAFT TALK TO COMPUTERS

Hughes Aircraft Co quality inspectors at its Radar Systems Group in El Segundo, California are talking to computers during the manufacture of advanced radar modules, the General Motors unit reports: the company says it has developed a prototype speech recognition system that enables inspectors to describe problems to personal computers on their desks, keeping their eyes and hands free; the computers, which have a vocabulary of about 1,000 words each, record the information, eliminating tedious, time-consuming steps in the inspection of the modules, each of which contain hundreds of components, and the company is looking for the system to bring savings of over $1.5m a year.
