Honda is pairing with SoundHound Inc. to develop a new voice-enabled artificially intelligent assistant. The new Honda AI Assistant will support more-natural interactions and commands, allowing you to access media, features, and more without taking your hands off the wheel. On models like the Ridgeline, Civic Sedan, and others, driving will be easier and safer than ever before.
According to Business Insider, the new AI system has Speech-to-Meaning™ and Deep Meaning Understanding™ technologies to optimize your interactions. You can speak to your car’s voice-recognition system just like you would a real person. Honda hopes the technology will encourage more people to use voice recognition when they’re behind the wheel.
“Our Houndify Collective AI is a natural fit for automotive brands that aim to provide voice AI to drivers while differentiating, innovating and retaining ownership of their brands,” said Keyvan Mohajer, co-founder and CEO of SoundHound Inc. “We are thrilled to partner with Honda to further enhance the driving experience with the fastest and most accurate voice and AI technology on the market.”
Honda has been working with its partners through Honda Xcelerator, an open-innovation program that works to bring big companies together with smaller start-ups. This is just one of many ways Honda is revolutionizing the industry and one of the reasons you should check out the automaker’s latest advanced technologies at Honda of Tiffany Springs.
