With his latest venture Speechmatics, Robinson finally wants to claim some of that success for himself.

With neural networks today tweaked and rebranded as "machine learning" and "deep learning" (which is how Robinson's Speechmatics brands its system), his legacy represents an important but largely unheralded British contribution to the modern world.

How neural nets revolutionised speech recognition

The theory goes back to a lot of IBM work way before the 1980s.

I could see the potential in the very late 1980s and early 1990s of neural nets and speech recognition.

You have a trigram that's a big table.
