Tiro ehf.

Tiro is a technology company that bridges the gap between speech and writing. We create user-friendly solutions based on language and artificial intelligence where we allow users to talk and listen to computers and systems instead of writing and reading. Tiro's employees have many years of experience working with Icelandic speech recognition in both research and development of solutions. Tiro aims to be consistently at the forefront of the quality and range of speech recognition solutions for Icelandic.

The company began its operations following a grant to its members from the Technology Development Fund to develop speech recognition for radiologists.


Our name is derived from the last name of Marcus Tullius Tiro, a slave and later a servant to Cicero. Tiro is said to have written down all of Cicero's speeches and published them after Cicero's passing. Tiro is also said to have come up with the first shorthand technology to carry out his tasks.


The basis for Tiro's activities is derived from research conducted within the Center for Analysis and Design of Intelligent Agents (CADIA) at Reykjavik University. The owners of the company originate from the Language and Voice Lab (LVL) of CADIA.
