CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee (WDEF)-The Chattanooga Convention Center will host numerous tech companies for Project Voice 2022 for the next three days.
“Chattanooga, like many other mid-sized cities, really has to struggle for economic power and relevance compared to our larger cities like Nashville and Atlanta, which we’re sandwiched between. Things like that that give us a competitive edge are really important,” Kelly said.
Mayor Tim Kelly delivered an opening address. Those words were then transcribed by a speech recognition startup, Deepgram, and then analyzed by Cyrano AI.
A conversational AI startup whose technology provides insights into personality and communication style.
“How to interact with a mayor. How to work with him and how to work with him. How to solve problems with him. Very much what his employees would want. Just an example, we’re adding another page on how to sell my house. We increase sales conversion by 26% and reduce time to sale by 44%. That way we can sell more things faster because you’re tailoring your pitch to what’s actually affecting the person rather than wasting time or worse saying the wrong thing,” Sandland said.
The technology goes beyond sales aid. It can also be used to support mental health.
“We currently have a pilot project running with 100 therapists. We’ve had this pilot going for almost a year and that’s the passion, that’s why we started this company,” said Sandland.
