Krisp snags $5M A round as demand grows for its voice-isolating algorithm – TechCrunch
Krisp applies a machine learning system to audio in real time that has been trained on what is and isn’t the human voice. What isn’t a voice gets carefully removed even during speech, and what remains sounds clearer. “In March, our biggest customer was a large tech company with 2,000 employees — and they bought 2,000 licenses, because everyone is remote. But we think Krisp will still be consumer-first, because everyone needs that, right?”Now even more large companies have signed on, including one call center with some 40,000 employees. For the immediate future, though, Krisp is still focused on improving its noise-suppression software, which you can download for free here.
