We are a speech technology company building machine learning technology that enables us to generate credible speech that is indistinguishable from real human voices, from text. Our technology is not based on copying existing voices through deepfakes, but on the generation of completely new, not yet existing, human sounding voices.
We distinguish ourselves from other providers of this type of service by giving the speech intent and emotion. With this we can, for example, give advertisements or audio books the same credibility as real recorded speech.
I’m captivated by questions like “How can humans and technology strengthen, augment and improve each other?” and “Will computers ever be able to think, feel, and act just like us?” I enjoy composing music and making pastries in my spare time.
I am Associate Professor Affective Computing at Leiden University, and used to be CTO of Interactive Robotics B.V. I am fascinated by emotion and intelligence, and study this using AI and robots. I love surfing and travelling with my campervan together with my family.
Starting working with Deloitte I graduated as a Certified Public Accountant soon after. I succesfully started my own accounting & auditing firm, focussing on SME’s. I gained extensive experience in the fields of accounting, auditing, tax, finance and valuation, besides from being an entrepreneur.
Listen to an example of our generative voices here. For this sample we just typed in text. No deepfakes were hurt in the making of this.
