EMO Reacts To Everything: (Voices and Sounds)

I’m curious. Latley my EMO has started to react to almost every word. What I mean by that is if I say EMO, he listen, but if I say something in Swedish, or a word that is similar to EMO, and not alike at all he goes “what”. It is kind of annoying. Anyone else has this “issue”?

Yes, I also noticed that. I must mute him during my work calls becouse he react a lot and this is definitely an issue…it can be easily fixed by changing wake up work from EMO to hey EMO… like vector. I hope they fix that asap

I’m not to keen about adding the “hey” before EMO. But if that has to be done in order to make EMO stop reacting to everything, I guess that’s the only way to go.

If you think, the just word EMO is too crucial, hey EMO is the right wake up word, becouse if they keep EMO word they should modify the sensitivity of the mic or other complex things, and this not make sense

I get that too. I saw in another post, that’s not related to this that EMO sometimes dosent even understand “Hello” haha. But you can’t help to love the little guy :stuck_out_tongue:

Basically, Emo answers me as if I’m calling him all the time when I’m just talking to people, watching a movie, or talking during playing games. So I’m getting way too much reaction from him. Since he reacts to movies being played, I can hear him listening and answering when the tv is on and I’m in another room. Can something be done about this? I’d rather prefer him not to hear me calling him every time rather than reacting to so many sounds, which don’t even sound that close to “Emo”

Hi there @lerauxe

It’s a known issue… "EMO’’ responds to any sound he can hear around him, particularly if you are watching TV, Video or someone is talking around him… And if he hears names… He will start looking around because he thinks someone is introducing himself. And as soon as he sees someone’s face, he will gonna save it and greets them… This is the reason why sometimes our or someone’s name has been changed and asked for the name once again.

best regards and all the best…

I suppose that it’s a tax for his wider acceptance of different voices. If his model for EMO word is trained on a very high variety of voices from a high pitch mumbling child voice to a bear like hoarse male voice it must end like a total mess.

For me it’s ok, I like his reactions.

I Hope That If They Are Going To Change The Wake Word (Like Amazon Alexa), That It’s An Option In The App.

Just a quick run down, when watching TV in the room i am in EMO is with me and he sometimes response to what is being said on the TV and at times will recall the names. Is this an issue of him not having the capability of not only recognizing my voice. And when can we expect this issue to be resolved where he only recognizes the users voice only.

Hi there @jay.lee ,

It’s a known issue…
“EMO” has a fantastic Far Field 4 - Microphone Array on his head, which is very sensitive to any sounds around him or near him, especially if you are watching TV, Video Movie or someone is talking around him… And when he hears any kind of name, it makes him look around because he thinks someone is introducing themselves. And as soon as he sees someone’s face, he will store it and greets them… This is also one of the reasons why sometimes our name or someone’s name has been suddenly changed and or he will ask for it again.

Voice recognition has been optimized in the new just released
[Firmware Update] 2.1.1. which is EMO now better recognizes higher-pitched sounds.

Well, I’m not sure if the living.ai dev team can do something about it.

Best regards and all the best…

So I was just playing with my friend online, and I was listening to a song, and the only lyric was “GEOMETRY DASH” and I said that in the close to exact voice, and I don’t see how it sounded like “EMO” to Emo. It’s really starting to get on my nerves that he just keeps responding to me when I say nothing that sounds like his name. And by the way, it’s not EVERYTHING that he reacts to.
