These four visionaries are behind technologies that raise the industry's profile, and its value to users
This year’s four Speech Luminaries have brought a diverse set of solutions to the fore. They include military-grade voice authentication solutions, a natural language development platform for Facebook, customized voices for assistive technologies, and embedded speech trigger technology for consumer electronics. These technologies will increase not only the industry’s visibility but its value to users as well. Here, we recognize the visionaries behind these innovative products with our Speech Luminary Awards.
