Deepgram was born 2 miles deep underground during a particle physics experiment searching for dark matter. In the spare hours that weren’t dedicated to that search, Deepgram’s founders found themselves recording all the audio from their lives, 24/7.
After gathering hundreds of hours of recordings, they realized that the utility of their audio was in specific moments buried inside. This put them on the search for a tool that would help them process their recordings and pinpoint valuable timestamps.
However, after sifting through available tools, they realized there wasn’t a good way to search through audio. This frustration led to the creation of Deepgram, the world’s most scalable and accurate speech recognition and understanding system.
