Using voice as a medium to access information and control devices is becoming increasingly common. The technology to enable voice and speech recognition improves day by day, thanks to Artificial Intelligence, but there’s still some gap between queries being served and processed. Helsinki-based startup Speechly aims to change the status quo by developing new spoken language understanding APIs that can be used to build better voice recognition systems. The company has raised €2M in seed round for realising its goals.
As mentioned above, Speechly has secured a funding of €2 million in its seed round. The funding round was led by Berlin’s Cherry Ventures, along with participation by Seedcamp, Quantum Angels, Joyance Partners, Social Starts, Tiny.vc, Juha Paananen and Nicolas Dessaigne. The company says it will utilise the funds to further develop its offerings and release the public APIs of its technology.
