Nigel Cannings has served as chief technology officer of Intelligent Voice, the speech recognition experts, for the last seven years. He's been commissioned to recover data from an "unbreakable" portable recording device, and gained U.K. government recognition in the form of a sizable grant to explore leading-edge problems in speech research, such as ultra-high-speed GPU-accelerated speech recognition and emotional analysis of telephone calls. In 2016, Nigel spoke at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference, where he outlined his idea to get a deep convolutional neural network to perform speech recognition. This work resulted in Intelligent Voice being awarded for innovation for its SmartTranscript? and winning almost $100,000 in prizes. Nigel also spoke at GTC Europe 2016, presenting on Intelligent Voice's revolutionary work on "Credibility Analysis in the GPU Age." Nigel qualified as a solicitor in 1993 and has worked for some of the world's largest law firms and software companies.
