O'Duffy has spent the last 10 years with Amazon, both in Silicon Valley and in Europe. He was hired originally to develop and manage Amazon's technical partnerships with global tier 1 wireless carriers for tablets, e-readers and smartphones. Subsequently, he was selected to be a founding member of Alexa Voice Service (AVS) technical team, working with ODMs and system integrators to design new voice controlled products.

"I first met Gavin a few years ago at Harvard University while attending a voice conference and was immediately impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. We could not be more elated to have a leader such as him to guide our sales and marketing strategy as we continue to expand our technology capabilities," stated Henry O'Connell, co-founder and CEO of Canary Speech.

In joining Canary Speech, O'Duffy comments, "I'm excited by Canary's mission to leverage AI and Machine Learning (ML) techniques to assist healthcare professionals in the diagnosis and evaluation of diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease well as developing objective measurements in the evaluation of stress, anxiety, depression and PTSD.  As part of my role, I will be establishing a new office in Dublin, Ireland and growing the team to better support United States and international customers."
