Sensory Acquires Vocalize.ai for Speech Technology Testing Capabilities
Sensory Inc., a Silicon Valley company that pioneered speech recognition and AI in consumer electronics, announced the acquisition of Vocalize.ai, a software tools and services company that performs benchmarking, accuracy assessments, and bias evaluations for speech technologies and natural language interfaces. As part of the acquisition, Sensory will maintain Vocalize.ai as an independently operated division.
There has always been a gap between the testing that technology companies do in simulated environments and the real world performance of the end product when the right microphones, product housing, memory and MIPS constraints, and sound processing technologies are added. Vocalize.ai helps to close this gap with the ability to assess technology and product performance.
Sensory’s clients will benefit from this new relationship through discounts on Vocalize.ai services, and they will be given the option to include the testing services offered by Vocalize.ai throughout the product development process.
