Peter Cahill has been working in voice technology for 15 years. He has a PhD. in Text-to-Speech, was a professor of speech technology at the University of Dublin and more recently founded speech technology platform, Voysis. Voysis raised $8 million in VC funding in February 2017 and has offices in Dublin, Boston and Edinburgh. While Peter expects Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri will have great success in many consumer applications, he founded Voysis to provide businesses with a flexible platform enabling them to own the entire end-to-end customer experience. Every new technology platform shift generates new billion dollar valuation companies. Could Voysis be among this group for voice and AI? Peter discusses the challenges of voice technology, how TTS differs from STT, what Voysis is up to in voice commerce and where the industry is headed. Enjoy.
