Nigel Cannings

CTO, Intelligent Voice

Nigel qualified as a solicitor in 1993 and has worked for some of the world's largest law firms and software companies. Nigel has been the CTO of Intelligent Voice, Speech Recognition Experts, for the last 7 years. As a keen technologist, Nigel is always on the lookout for new challenges and so is often seen finding new ways of stretching existing techniques and technology. This has led to interesting commissions such as recovering data from an "unbreakable" portable recording device and he has gained UK government recognition in the form of a sizable grant, for Intelligent Voice to explore leading edge problems in speech research such as ultra-high speed GPU accelerated speech recognition and emotional analysis of telephone calls.

Nigel is regularly invited to speak at various conferences worldwide, including the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference in San Jose California in April 2016, where he outlined his idea to get a deep Convolution Neural Network (CNN) to perform speech recognition. This work resulted in Intelligent Voice being awarded for innovation for their SmartTranscript™ and winning almost $100,000 in prizes.
Additionally Nigel was invited to speak at GTC Europe 2016 in September, presenting on Intelligent Voice’s revolutionary work on Credibility Analysis in the GPU Age; Rutgers’ 38th World Continuous Auditing and Reporting Symposium in the US in November; the Deep Learning Fintech Event in March 2017 and most recently Nigel presented a talk at the 2017 NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference in San Jose California, speaking on the subject of Encrypted Deep Learning – A Guide to Privacy Preserving Speech Processing”.
