    Digital becomes human – this is how it should be, if you would ask Dr. Dirk C. Gratzel. “Machines shall understand the way we humans really are. As of today, they only understand which concern we have.” With his vision the CEO and Co-Founder of PRECIRE Technologies makes a Mission Statement as well. Therefore, he and his 35 headed crazy but brilliant team have developed the speech analysis technology PRECIRE®. PRECIRE® decodes speech (spoken and also written speech) and provides fascinating insights into the interaction of personality, communication and behavior. By means of these insights this technology will provide digitalization with a bit more humanity.
