Veritone to Leverage Nuance's Transcription Engine

Veritone, a provider of cloud-based cognitive computing solutions, has partnered with Nuance Communications to incorporate the Nuance Transcription Engine (NTE) within Veritone's cloud-based, hosted Cognitive Media Platform (CMP).

Nuance joins Veritone's growing set of partners that includes providers of cognitive engines such as sentiment extraction, tonal analysis, facial and object recognition, and more. The addition of NTE will enhance the efficiency and overall capabilities of Veritone's cognitive platform by adding highly accurate transcription.  

Nuance's transcription technology, deployed within Veritone's large-scale cloud environment and combined with Veritone's specialized training data sets, is expected to enhance Veritone's capabilities for deeper learning and improve the overall performance and accuracy of the CMP engines.  NTE will now be accessible to Veritone's client base for use with its ecosystem of millions of hours of audio and video content.

With support for 15 languages and 30 dialects, Nuance's speech recognition is trained to recognize specific industry and regional terms, proper nouns, and brand names. 

"We believe in the power of intelligent systems and in Veritone's innovative approach to applying such intelligence to global media," Robert Weideman, executive vice president and general manager of Nuance Enterprise, said in a statement. "Veritone is at the forefront of bringing market-driven solutions to key verticals, accelerating the extensibility and democratization of media. Through this partnership, we will be able to unlock new capabilities and broaden the reach of our technology across Veritone's rapidly growing customer base."

"Our mission to transform the world's media into actionable intelligence is a simple notion with profound implications. Our goal is to offer businesses a solution that will analyze media through various cognitive engines in near-real time to enable better decision-making and advanced business intelligence while providing unique monetization opportunities to partners and developers," Chad Steelberg, CEO, Veritone, said in a statement. "We are thrilled to work with Nuance as we continue to expand our ecosystem to include the most advanced cognitive tools available today and into the future."
