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 people who want 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 enhance and evolve our technology, we need to record particular sounds on an ongoing basis. Could you help us with the following recording projects?

  • Dog barks
  • Baby cries
  • Snoring
  • Kitchen appliance sounds
  • Window glass break
  • Outdoor sound recordings

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 the form on this page. We look forward to hearing from you.

We take data protection seriously. We will not share your details with anybody and will only use your contact details to let you know about research projects that you may want to help us with.

A note about window glass break

Unfortunately we can't accept everyone for our window glass break research and it is subject to a house visit. We offer £250 per unit i.e. where a unit is a single frame that may or may not contain multiple glass panes. We will help prepare the room and clean up after the break. If the break can't coincide with a glazier then we will get an external fitter in to board up the windows.

Homes for window glass break must be in the Cambridge area.
