Krisp on Time's Best Inventions of 2020 List

Krisp, a noise-canceling app that removes all background noises for incoming and outgoing calls with one button, was recognized by Time as one of the Best Inventions of 2020. They made the list in the Artificial Intelligence category as one of five startups who received the title.

With the shift to remote work due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are looking for technology to support the unique challenges that arise while working from home. Krisp addresses a major pain point for those who take phone and video calls from home while pets, children, construction, or other noises are heard in the background.

The Krisp app uses artificial intelligence and machine learning technology to distinguish the difference between your voice and background sounds. They are then able to “mute” the background noise while keeping your voice audio clear for others on the call. This allows for better productivity and more professionalism while working from home.
