1. Staff Member Featured in Wired for Building JuliusJS, an In-Browser Voice Activation Program

    As a Hack Reactor student, Zach Pomerantz became interested in voice activation after coming across a human language processing API called Wit.ai. Voice commands, which could substitute for a variety of mouse or keyboard actions, have largely been the domain of mobile devices, with Siri and Google Now the best known examples. Pomerantz started to wonder what it would take to bring voice activation to the browser. Eventually that query would lead him to building a unique program and getting lots of press.
