Dodging in and out of Istanbul’s infamously difficult traffic gave Serhan his passion for speed. His first American car was a Chevy Camaro and then ‘Black Beauty’ his souped up BMW M3. Whilst he and Hermione were courting they would drag race their cars home over the San Francisco Bay Bridge. Combining their mutual love for cars and technology they came up with the idea for TechDrive.

Ajay Juneja, EditorScreen Shot 2014-06-07 at 10.21.29 AM

A self confessed ‘car nut’ Ajay brings the tech to TechDrive.  Based off a decade of research at Carnegie Mellon University funded by DARPA and Bosch he founded Speak With Me, a Silicon Valley based startup that now builds speech recognition technology for cars and other devices.

Because we are car nuts at Speak With Me – we took a client-centric approach to speech recognition, and made a platform to build virtual-assistants that is 100 times faster than Siri and battle tested on the racetrack. We can’t say yet what cars Speak With Me will be in, but we can guarantee you’re going to feel like David Hasselhoff when you drive one.
