3Play Media Welcomes Roger Zimmerman to the Team
3Play Media is excited to announce that Roger Zimmerman has joined 3Play Media as the VP of Research & Development. Roger has an extensive background in speech and language processing, as well as design and implementation of large, scalable software systems.
Roger comes to us from Nuance, where he held the position of Senior R&D Architect. Prior to Nuance, Roger was the ﬁrst employee at eScription, where he developed advanced speech recognition and natural language processing technology for medical transcription. In addition, Roger pioneered the development of a scalable farm of speech recognition servers that transcribe thousands of hours of audio per day. With Roger’s key contributions, eScription became enormously successful and was acquired by Nuance in 2008. Prior to eScription, Roger held research and technical leadership positions at Philips Speech Processing and Voice Processing Corporation.
Roger is a graduate of Brown University and has authored numerous patents and publications on speech and language processing. He is also an accomplished brewer, having just completed a batch he calls “3Play Medi’ale”, which has a noted hoppy bitterness.
