Albert S. Llanes, Chief Technology Officer
Albert S. Llanes, whose multidisciplinary approach to needs identification and problem solving have led to the conception, design, creation, and marketing of award winning products and services, serves as ZyDoc’s CTO.
His primary strength is his ability to analyze and transfer knowledge of otherwise complex technical subject matter in easy to follow instructor led trainings, web based trainings, and self-based tutorials. This ability to translate the “complex technical” to “easily understood” was well honed at previous diverse positions held at multinational corporations including Philips Speech Processing and Pioneer New Media Technologies.
He has been on the leading edge of software integration with a focus on continuous speech language model development for the last ten years and to ZyDoc’s credit, ZyDoc now owns a process for building continuous speech recognition vocabularies of superior performance at a fraction of competitor’s costs.
Albert holds MSHRM and BS in Applied Science degrees. His certifications include PMI’s prestigious PMP and COMPTIA’s A+, i-Net+, IT Project+, Linux+, Network+, and Server+. He is an active member of the Project Management Institute.
On his free time Albert likes to play with his children and play bass guitar in a small regional group.
