This Startup Wants to Give Voice Assistants Better Ears
Kardome develops a multi-user speech to text algorithm that hones in on a person’s individual voice, as opposed to also picking up wind noise or background music
Ever been frustrated when Siri doesn’t pick up the correct address or song choice because of excess background noise?The company is backed by The Israel Innovation Authority, the Israeli government innovation arm.
Kardome Technology Ltd. is out to drown out these issues, along with excess background noise.
The company founded in 2018 develops a multi-user speech to text algorithm that hones in on a person’s individual voice, as opposed to also picking up wind noise or background music. In acoustically challenging environments, such as windy walks or children-filled cars, that can make quite a difference.
