VoiceBox baut globalen Produktumfang für Automobilbranche aus

VoiceBox Technologies Corp., ein preisgekröntes innovatives Unternehmen, das auf der Grundlage seiner patentierten sogenannten Conversational Voice-Technologie Anwendungen im Bereich Voice Personal Assistant (persönliche Helfer mit mobilen Sprachdiensten) entwickelt, gab heute die Erweiterung seines globalen Produktumfangs für die Automobilbranche bekannt. Das Unternehmen ergänzte sein stetig wachsendes Automobilgeschäft vor Kurzem um vier wichtige Automarken: Chrysler, Dodge, Mazda und Maserati. Die Produkte werden in zehn europäischen Sprachen sowie in drei asiatischen Sprachen – Mandarin, Koreanisch und Japanisch – in die Autos integriert.

„Wir sind wirklich sehr stolz darauf, diese großartigen Automobilmarken bei uns in der internationalen VoiceBox-Familie zu begrüßen“, so Mike Kennewick, CEO von VoiceBox. Zu den anderen Marken, in denen die Produkte von VoiceBox auf internationaler Ebene bereits in der Vergangenheit zum Einsatz kamen, zählen Toyota, Lexus, Scion, Fiat und Renault.

VoiceBox war ein Vorreiter beim Einsatz von natürlichen Sprachtechnologien in Autos, da das Unternehmen seine dem neuesten Stand der Technik entsprechende Sprachunterstützung zunächst in dem Lexus 2008 RX testete. Im Vordergrund stand für das Unternehmen dabei der Trend der vernetzen Fahrzeuge, mit denen Anwender auf Informationen zugreifen können, die in der sogenannten „Cloud“ gespeichert werden. Diese Technik kam beim preisgekrönten Toyota Entune zum Einsatz. Anders als bei vergleichbaren Lösungen der Konkurrenz müssen die Anwender bei der Intelligent Hybrid-Architektur von VoiceBox nicht wissen, welche Informationen bordeigen und welche bordextern sind. Im Gegensatz zu Lösungen, bei denen der Anwender dazu aufgefordert wird „Dienste... Verkehr... Seattle“ usw. zu sagen, können sie mit VoiceBox einfach fragen „Welcher Verkehr herrscht jetzt in Seattle?“

Bei der nächsten Produktinnovation des Unternehmens, die in diesem Augenblick auf der Technikmesse CES vorgestellt wird, wird der Personal Assistant integriert. Auf diese Weise werden individuelle Erfahrungen geboten, die das von Software Siri geläufig gewordene Musterbeispiel von „eine Frage – eine Antwort“ hinter sich lassen. Bei den Produkten von VoiceBox ist die Erfahrung mit dem Personal Assistant wesentlich interaktiver und proaktiver.

„Zusammen mit den Vorteilen und den Personalisierungsmöglichkeiten unserer patentierten Technologie kommt dem Automobilmarkt auch unser umfangreiches Fachwissen in den Bereichen Fremdsprachen und Produktlokalisierung zugute“, fügt Kennewick hinzu.

“Oh, dev is dev and ops is ops, and never the twain shall meet.” With apoloies to Rudyard Kipling and all of his fans, this describes the early state of the two sides of DevOps. Yet the DevOps approach is demanded by cloud computing, as the speed, flexibility, and scalability in today's so-called “Third Platform” must not be hindered by the traditional limitations of software development and deployment. A recent report by Gartner, for example, says that 25% of Global 2000 companies will b...
