Speech Graphics, an Edinburgh and California based technology business, has received a £2 million investment from Archangels, Par Equity and the Scottish Investment Bank to pursue its plans.
The company is targeting the customer service sector’s intelligent virtual assistant market from its base in the San Francisco Bay area of California.
The IVA market is expected to grow from $750m (£538m) to nearly $12.3bn (£8.8bn) by 2024. Speech Graphics technology introduces an emotional connection currently lacking in existing artificial intelligence (AI) platforms used in customer service.
It plans to use the proceeds of the funding to build a software platform around its core technology which will allow the development community to create emotionally responsive avatars which can engage in real-time conversations with customers.
