Company Summary

When you talk 80% of your message is delivered through the tone in your voice: not what you say, but the way you say it. Smartphones don't understand this, yet we would all like to talk to our phones more and get them to do all sorts of complicated tasks. We develop software that recognises emotions in speech in real-time. Our customers are providers of mental health services and speech-based services, such as call centres.
