News : AppTek Awarded by Speech Technology Magazine
McLean, VA, USA, Jan 24, 2018 -- Applications Technology (AppTek) has been recognized as a Star Performer by SpeechTech, a speech industry advocacy organization. AppTek was awarded for its contributions to a variety of automatic speech recognition areas including the advancement of automated closed captioning.
"We are very honored to be recognized in this way," said Adam Sutherland, AppTek CEO. "We have been leading the way in speech recognition for over 15 years. This award is the culmination of a very successful 2017 – a year which was record-breaking for us in our commercial, government, academic and research achievements. All of which are due to our amazing team of scientists, engineers and customer outreach."
"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."
