Motorola invests in speech recognition technology firm

Chicago, Il

Motorola Solutions has made a strategic investment in Greenkey Technologies (GK), a leading provider of natural language processing for domain-specific workflows, as it begins to deploy its automated speech recognition technology across the company's command centre suite. The investment, a follow-on to GK’s Series B round that closed in March, will focus exclusively on building GK’s resource expertise, technology and deployment processes in the public safety field.

As a leading provider of U.S. public safety command centre software, Motorola Solutions will use GK’s speech recognition technology to provide 9-1-1 call takers with real-time transcription of emergency calls.

“Over the past two years, we’ve worked with Motorola Solutions on building technology to decrease response times and lower the administrative burden for first responders,” said Anthony Tassone, founder and CEO of Greenkey. “Now that GK’s technology is trained to recognise the vocabulary used by first responders, we are thrilled to continue working with Motorola Solutions’ experts through the deployment and implementation stages ahead.”

“We are excited to be working closely with GK as a strategic partner to further advance our AI capabilities,” said Brad McManus, managing director, Venture Capital, Motorola Solutions. “GK’s speech recognition technology will be an important component in the digitisation of the public safety market moving forward.”
