MADRID, July 28 (Portaltic/EP) –
LG Electronics has signed this Thursday a collaboration agreement with SoundHound to jointly develop voice systems based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) for the vehicles of the future (IVI).
With this collaboration, both companies seek to provide greater comfort and functionality in the experience between the driver and his car, as reported by the South Korean company in a statement sent to Europa Press.
In this sense, it should be remembered that SoundHound is a company that focuses on AI-based speech recognition and natural language processing solutions, such as Speech-to-Meaning Y Deep Meaning Understanding.
As the virtual assistant market is expected to grow considerably over the next few years, more car manufacturers are getting on board with this trend, and for this reason, LG seeks to provide new features and voice capabilities to the next generation IVI systems.
“This partnership will allow us to better meet the needs of our automotive consumers and create innovative solutions that will help drive the future of mobility”, commented the president of LG Vehicle Component Solutions (VS), Eun Seok-hyun.
For his part, the president and CEO of SoundHound has advocated for “deliver the kind of infotainment experience by voice that all users will need in the car of tomorrow”.
