About Yobe: Yobe, takes an intelligent approach to a more human voice experience. Our CAFE, product line is an intelligent conversational audio front end that extracts valuable linguistic details and auditory biomarkers in dynamic SNR environments.

While traditional Audio Front Ends (AFE’s) focus on standard audio problems like noise cancellation and signal separation, Yobe’s CAFE is an adaptive, conversationally focused audio front end that strives to preserve linguistic and biological markers found in voice signals, we call this “Intelligent Listening”.  Based on Yobe’s ADL (Adaptive Discriminant Listening) solution, CAFE is a proprietary, on-the-edge, artificial intelligence engine that effectively listens for voice – in complicated audio settings. The technology is specifically designed for challenging signal-to-noise levels and extracts voices in a way that maintains the unique markers you need for accurate voice analytics without the introduction of any unwanted artifacts. CAFE enhances voice platforms at a level not previously seen before.
