VeCommerce Limited (ASX:VCM), a global leader in the provision of natural language speech recognition (NLSR), speaker verification and voice enabled e-commerce solutions, has announced that Brett Feldon has been promoted to the newly created position of Chief Technology Officer (CTO).
As CTO, Feldon will continue to shape VeCommerces technology strategy. "Through his unsurpassed technical capability, Brett has already made an immense contribution to our industry and is highly regarded by his peers, said VeCommerce Managing Director, Paul Magee. As we move into a growth phase within the industry, I am very confident that Bretts grasp on voice recognition and communications technology, as well as his leadership skills, will be of further significant benefit to VeCommerce.
Feldon has been involved with nearly all of VeCommerces speech deployments either in a technical or review role. He assisted with the implementation of Australias first commercial speech solution at UNiTAB (formerly TAB Queensland) and has been involved in the development and implementation of some of the most complex speech applications in the world in such organisations as Suncorp, AAPT, Tab Limited, Ladbrokes.
More recently, Feldon provided technical leadership for Australias first commercial deployment of speaker verification technology and oversaw the transformation of VeCommerces engineering activities into the standards-based world of VoiceXML.
Having just returned from SpeechTEK 2004, one of the industrys leading annual conferences, Feldon says that the overriding themes were speaker verification and speed of deployment of NLSR solutions. It is pleasing to see that VeCommerce is well advanced in deploying speaker verification systems in Australias Department of Finance and Administration and a major New Zealand government department, said Feldon.
