About the Company: Sanas.ai was created by a team of Stanford’s student engineers and top speech machine learning experts. The first application for the technology is in customer care centers, an industry where accent issues can be particularly problematic. The idea for Sanas was inspired by the experience of three international friends from Russia, China, and Venezuela, all of whom have very different accents. They witnessed firsthand the communication struggle due to accents and saw a mutual friend quit his job because of this challenge. They realized that there had to be a better way to communicate.
