About Mod9
Decades of research in deep neural networks, machine learning and automatic speech recognition. Extensive commercial experience in the speech and enterprise communications industry.
Top tier investment.

With increased compliance requirements in regulated industries such as financial services, healthcare and legal. Growing concerns about the storage and security of personal information. An ever-increasing demand for new innovative communications-based solutions so that businesses can gain a competitive edge, the speech market continues to be underserved by the currently available products and solutions.  Many are based on dated technologies or older science, making them prone to inaccuracies, difficult to scale or take advantage of the latest developments in compute processing. Some, exclusively SaaS offerings, unsuitable for regulated industry applications. Mod9 is here to address this shortfall.
