* Fake content created through Text to Speech by LionRocket

Voice recognition technology using artificial intelligence (AI) is evolving… from simple note-taking app that translates speech to text and to speech synthesis services that could mimic anything just as a real person would say. What prompted you to launch a startup in the field of voice technology?

LionRocket is unique in that you have the technology to create a voice engine through deep learning 'Text to Speech', or TTS, which in turn can be used to create contents. In other words, you can synthesize a speech from pretty much any given text. It seems like the possibility is endless. What are some of the areas that LionRocket has utilized this technology and in what ways are they innovative?

What were the biggest challenges you faced from start to date, and how do you assess business startup environment in Korea when compared to other countries?

What do you think is the single most important quality that the leader of a startup must possess? Any word of advice and encouragement for young entrepreneurs?

Lionrocket CEO Jeong Seung-hwan for us, thank you for sharing your special business stories.
