Daniel Kokotov
Rev.com, VP Engineering

Dan Kokotov is VP Engineering at Rev. Rev's vision is to unlock the full potential of speech for everyone, everywhere, by marrying best-in-class AI with the world's best human transcription force. Prior to that, Dan worked on software for cancer research and infectious disease tracking.


Today, API software solutions are usually designed first for the cloud, and often a particular cloud services provider. This was the case for rev.ai, our speech to text API. However, many use cases still require on-premise or at least private cloud deployments - whether due to privacy, latency or cost considerations.

This session will describe how we adapted our cloud-based speech-to-text API for on-premise deployment and the challenges we faced in doing so. We will discuss maintaining consistency between cloud and on-premise APIs, maximizing code reuse, and enabling platform-agnostic scalability.
