Audio Analytic is a pioneer of sound recognition, using cloudless AI to provide consumer technology with the sense of hearing.
The company’s innovative and patented algorithms can make sense of the audible world beyond speech and music, providing a wide range of products with the ability to better understand context. Through an intelligent understanding of the world around them, devices can help people look after their wellness and security; or enhance communication and entertainment experiences.
Teaching technology to hear is a considerable technical challenge as, unlike voice and music, sounds are unbounded and do not conform to strict rules or patterns. However, thanks to the world’s most extensive database of real-world audio data, which the company has amassed, and its advanced AI framework, Audio Analytic has developed a software platform (ai3™) that can be embedded into products without the need for cloud-based analysis.
Founded in 2010 by Dr Chris Mitchell, the company has licensed its technology to major global brands, including smart home company Hive, and is partnering with a number of other consumer brands (Hive, Bragi, Somfy, Sengled and Angee) and hardware manufacturers (Intel, Knowles and Ambarella) to bring this technology to the smart home, smart speaker, hearables, mobile and automotive markets.
