Founded by chief technology officer Dr Tony Robinson, who pioneered PhD research into recurrent neural networks in the 1980s, Speechmatics has developed a unique machine learning technology to harness the full potential of speech technology.

Tony Robinson’s world-class research team utilises the latest ML and AI technology to offer continual improvements in accuracy, an ever-increasing range of languages and new business applications. This technology is also designed to integrate with other applications in the workplace to generate value and insight.

With its language-building framework the Automatic Linguist (AL), the company has the ability to develop new languages at a rapid rate. Its technology can be deployed in the cloud, privately (including on-premises) or embedded on-device.

At the end of 2016 the firm received undisclosed investment from several sources, including technology venture capitalist IQ Capital, AI/machine learning specialist and technology investor Amadeus Capital Partners and a number of leading technology investors. These include Laurence Garrett (Highland Capital Europe), Cambridge Professor Ted Briscoe, a world expert in natural language processing, as well as unnamed co-founders of CSR, plus Richard Gibson – previously executive chairman at Cambridge University spin-out SwiftKey.
