The world is dependent on artificial intelligence and now it about time that music systems and speakers became a part of this new era. And cool news came from SoundHound and Boombotix that have answered this call and have joined hands to build the first natural speaker where you can request your favorite song and it will play it.
Just like Siri in iPhone, all you need to do is tell “OK Hound, play something romantic”. It is time now to know more about this new generation speaker and how you can “Hound-ify” everything.
What is Houndify?
Boombotix smart speaker with SoundHound assistant has created audio speakers which will be played via voice command and regulated by artificial intelligence. However, voice recognition and artificial intelligence are nothing new as many smartphones and tablets have already installed this in their system.
Houndify acts like a virtual assistant that will help you play songs according to your mood. The techs are so advanced that you do need to specify a particular song to play; you just need to hint at the genre and the rest of it will be taken care of.
Primary technology used by Hound:
It will bemuse you that a sound system includes the World’s fastest Automatic speech recognition, unparalleled Natural Language Understanding and the swiftest software development kits. It is amazing to see such resources being put to use and create such a marvel.
Primary technology and specs used by Boombotix:
Boombotix stands out to be the leading producer of portable speakers and it has kept its forte and features a portable speaker that will be approximately the size of a clenched fist. A two-way communicating device, powered by a 10-watt subwoofer, a battery recharging point along with astounding music clarity.
It will be bolstered by noise-cancellation microphones and hands-free tech. With the help of Houndify, it will not only play music and songs; weather updates, match reports, search engine and day-to-day chores can be managed using this beast.
Powered by Houndify speech-to-meaning technology which is their trademark innovation; the interaction will be made as simple as possible.
