techUK CES 2018: British company Speechmatics is powering a speech-enabled future as it heads to the Great Britain and Northern Ireland Pavilion at CES 2018

Speechmatics is a leading provider of Automatic Speech Recognition technology based on decades of experience in neural networks. With its technology covering 72 unique languages, the company will be showcasing its Real-Time Virtual Appliance where users are able to plug Speechmatics’ new software directly into an audio stream and get instantaneous real-time transcription.

Benedikt Von Thüngen, CEO of Speechmatics, outlined why CES is a crucial event for it to attend:

“Much of the current hype is around virtual personal assistants, or VPAs, such as Alexa and Siri. However, what will truly disrupt the consumer market is conversational speech technology that adapts to the user and functions across different devices. This is the message that we want to push at the show and achieve the scale and growth we feel is possible in 2018. With CES being the biggest consumer-focused show in the world, our attendance is an opportunity to reach the North-American market and allow us to explore key consumer verticals.”
