Audio Analytic is a British company that has developed a patented sound recognition software framework called ai3 which provides technology with the ability to understand context through sound. This framework includes an embeddable software platform that can react to a range of sounds such as smoke alarm & CO alarms, window breakage, baby cry and dogs barking. Aimed at consumer technology, Audio Analytic's software can be embedded into a wide range of intelligent devices in the home, out and about, or in the car. It is hardware agnostic and designed to run on-device and not in the cloud.

The company was based on University PhD research with seed investment from EEDA (East of England Development Agency) and local Angel investors.

The company’s investors include Cambridge Angels, Rockspring, Martlets, Cambridge Investment Capital and IQ Capital Partners.
