About Igor Jablokov

Igor was the founder and CEO of Yap, a VC-backed startup that pioneered cloud-based speech recognition. Their platform was deployed by enterprise customers such as Microsoft, Sprint, and Yext, and was a finalist at the first TechCrunch Disrupt conference. Yap was subsequently acquired by Amazon to act as the nucleus of products such as Alexa, Echo, and Fire TV. Igor is now CEO of an emerging stealth startup in the field of AI, with a growing team staffed by the inventors of Alexa and IBM’s Watson.
