"We actually create a specifically adapted model for each customer," said Steve Cook, AppTek CTO. "The news stations using our Live Closed Captioning Appliance each have their own ASR model for local vocabulary. The same is true for our telephony clients – not only do we have different models for insurance-related calls versus sales calls, we have specific models for insurance customer A versus insurance customer B."
"2018 looks to be another banner year for AppTek," said Sutherland. "Our continuing governmental work is a great foundation from which to continue to grow our efforts in broadcast, telephone, e-commerce and beyond."
