Although SoundHound is known for its music-identification app, the company’s real innovation is its development of the world’s most advanced and accurate platform for natural language processing. The platform has many applications (cloud, mobile, automotive) and allows you to interact on a hands-free basis throughout any data domain you choose. In 2016 SoundHound launched its Hound virtual assistant, taking on Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, and the Google Assistant, and there are now 20,000 developers on the Houndify platform, with the service having already been integrated into 150 domains. Among those enterprises who have implemented it are Samsung, Nvidia, Sony’s Xperia, Yelp, and Uber.
