About Kanari AI

Kanari AI officially launched in March 2020 with the goal of commercializing the leading Arabic speech recognition software.  Since 2016 our technology has been at the forefront of dialectal speech recognition, showcasing not only the potential of AI, but also a way to help to transform the way in which we protect and promote cultural heritage.

We are committed to advancing speech technology solutions for under-resourced languages, starting with Arabic.
