AudioTelligence Raises £3.1 Million
Cambridge Innovation Capital led £3.1 million seed funding round into AudioTelligence, which provides real-time audio processing technology for the enhancement of ASR systems. Cambridge Enterprise, the commercial arm of the University of Cambridge, and two Cambridge-based angels investors also participated.
AudioTelligence says its technology dramatically enhances the accuracy of ASR systems, such as those used in mobile devices, virtual assistants, and voice-activated, hands-free automotive systems. It processes the output from low-cost uncalibrated microphones and delivers improvements in separating a speaker’s voice from background noise and other conversations.
AudioTelligence’s technology also addresses other applications, such as the hearing assistance market. The company is a spin-out from Cambridge-based CEDAR Audio Limited, a world leader in audio restoration, dialogue noise suppression, and speech enhancement for the entertainment and audio forensic sectors.
