Cochl won a special jury prize at the Sound of Silence hackathon organized by Renault Group, the French automotive manufacturer. We competed with 20 candidates, and the finalist were 4 companies- Analog Devices, SafeRide Technologies Ltd, Biometric Labs, and Cochl.
The hackathon was about detecting a malfunction detection in an automotive environment using only a mobile phone's microphone. It was a good opportunity to learn how Cochl's sound AI technology can be applied to malfunction sound detection in a car, having a chance to communicate with domain experts. Special thanks to all jury members, also the SVP After-Sales team from Renault.
