Our sound recognition technology is enabling consumer products to understand the world around them through the human-like sense of hearing.

We are looking for participants to help with our research by allowing us to record specific sounds around them. There is a financial reward for all participants and we always try to fit recordings around your availability.

In order to further develop our technology, we need to record the sounds we are interested in. Could you help us with the following recording projects?

  • Dog barks
  • Baby cries
  • Snoring

Don’t worry if you can’t participate in any of our current projects, by registering your interest on this page we can let you know about future opportunities.

If you would like to get involved then please fill in our participant form. We look forward to hearing from you.
