In-Q-Tel Invests in Deepgram Speech Recognition Tech

Intelligence community venture capital firm In-Q-Tel has invested in and partnered with Deepgram to help bring the latter's speech recognition technology to the government.

Scott Stephenson, CEO of Deepgram, wrote in a blog post published Thursday the company designed its  platform with a deep learning feature to automatically recognize and transcribe spoken language.

George Hoyem, managing partner for investments at IQT, said Deepgram's artificial intelligence-based neural architecture applies speech recognition models that have been trained on big data.

Hoyem added that using a transfer learning approach helps the startup to create speech-to-text tools for multiple language variants on smaller amounts of training data.
