Our vision

Jean-Louis Quéguiner, previously VP of Data, AI & Quantum Computing at OVHcloud, founded Gladia to make cutting-edge AI tools and research accessible to any developer.

Since then, our initial mission expanded to address a bigger need in the market. Namely, that up to 90% of enterprise audio data currently goes unused. We want to change that.

We believe there is a better way to work

At Gladia, our mission is to help companies build knowledge infrastructure platforms to connect all internal audio, text, and visual data and make it discoverable in real time.

Our first product, Audio Intelligence API, is designed to enable any company to easily embed top-quality Audio AI into their applications, whatever the tech stack.

Why start with

Audio AI?

Because voice is the primary way humans communicate. From virtual meetings to content creation and customer care — words have value we can’t afford to lose.

The way we see it, audio is the foundation of every company’s AI knowledge infrastructure. We’re working on delivering the next-gen knowledge management platforms, built one brick at a time to adapt to your ever-growing needs.

Our ultimate goal is to help companies easily leverage AI to give humans the time and information needed to mature their best ideas into impactful decisions.
