Automated Prediction of Interview Performance -> My Automated Conversation Coach (MACH) -> ROCSpeak.com
MACH – My Automate Conversation coacH — originated from people with Asperger’s wanting help developing conversational skills.
Originally a research application, got a grant from Azure to develop a cloud version. As people use the framework, the data gets fed back into the model, which improves the performance.
At the end, it’s not the specific cloud functionality but the interaction with the people at the vendor that makes things work.
