Embed ai3™ and give your product the sense of hearing

What is ai3™?

ai3™ is an embedded software platform that provides a simple API to inform you when a specific audio event or acoustic scene is present, enabling your product to react to it.

It is delivered as a comprehensive SDK, including cross-platform C libraries, reference implementations, custom sound recognition debugging tools and well-documented APIs.
