Selected as “Best Speech-to-Text Solution” by leading market intelligence organization, AppTek now celebrates a further accolade in an impressive year.
AppTek this week announced that its automatic speech recognition (ASR) solution has been selected as winner of the third annual AI Breakthrough Awards in the “Best Speech-to-Text Solution” category. The company works in artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), automatic speech recognition (ASR), neural machine translation (NMT), and natural language understanding (NLU) technologies.
A leading market intelligence organization, AI Breakthrough recognizes top companies, technologies, and products in the global AI market. Senior executives with backgrounds in business, marketing, sales, analytics, and academia make up the judging panel. The award received over 2,750 nominations from over 15 countries globally, and honored select companies for excellence and innovation in artificial intelligence and machine learning categories.
“The AI Breakthrough Award is another milestone achievement in AppTek’s track record,” said AppTek SVP of marketing Kyle Maddock.
AppTek has indeed already claimed several accolades this year, including ranking top in multiple categories for the 17th annual International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT 2020), as well as winning its 2020 Speech Technology Award for innovations in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language. The company also released two new applications in speech translation and speech transcription, which were designed to make its speech translation capabilities accessible to more consumers and are available in the Apple App Store.
The news also follows the announcement that AppTek will now partner with Gallaudet University to develop new apps for its deaf and hard-of-hearing students. Integrating AppTek’s ASR platform on one application, say representatives of the company, will incorporate the latest AI and ML technologies to enable assistive service to users on demand.
