Nuance Communications has announced new artificial intelligence (AI)-powered capabilities for its Dragon Drive automotive platform. Dragon Drive now tightly integrates conversational artificial intelligence with non-verbal modalities such as gaze detection, enabling drivers to get information about and interact with places outside the car simply by looking at them; enhanced interoperability with other assistants, including in the smart home, virtual personal assistants and bots; and Just Talk, the capability to invoke the automotive assistant without pushing a button or using a wake-up word.
Powered by artificial intelligence, Dragon Drive’s conversational automotive assistant listens, understands and responds to drivers, and empowers automakers to make the AI-powered connected car experience a reality. Dragon Drive’s innovative new features, which were honored with a CES 2018 Innovation Award in the Vehicle Intelligence and Self-Driving Technology category, include:
Dragon Drive powers more than 200 million cars on the road today across more than 40 languages, creating conversational experiences for Toyota, Audi, BMW, Daimler, Fiat, Ford, GM, Hyundai, SAIC, and more.
