Communication between a computer and humans have always been unnatural - typing to get a response isn't the most intuitive method of conveying commands/instructions as opposed to the ease of using voice. The introduction of speech recognition technology aims to bridge the gap of communication - where computers can make sense of certain phrases and sentences.
SMILE are the team behind the newly released Chesterfield College website. Along with a new visual language and website structure, we have utilised Artificial Intelligence to help ease a strain on internal resource.

News has changed a lot over the years, from being printed in newspapers and magazines, through video on the television and now people look online first.
