Ondřej founded Oplatai in March 2018 to fill the gap of missing speech and conversation solutions for companies on the market. He realized there is a huge difference between the speech interfaces promoted by big companies like Google, Amazon and Apple and the speech interfaces which are available for e-commerce, public institutions or hardware startups.
Ondřej has gained experience with speech technology mostly as a researcher and a consultant. He visited labs:
- Siri Speech team at Apple, Cupertino, California
- Siri Language Modelling team at Apple, Cupertino, California
- Ufal MFF CUNI, Prague, CZ
- IBM Watson, Prague, CZ
- FBK, Trento, Italy
He has helped startups to build their speech interfaces:
