Understand the meaning, not just the words. The Speech-to-Meaning™ engine delivers unprecedented speed and accuracy and can be integrated with mobile applications, cloud software, connected devices and, ultimately, the Internet of Things.

Supports Context and Follow‑up

Use context, such as the user's location or previous queries, to support natural interactions.

For example, users can say "show me hotels around me," "how about in san francisco," "nothing more than $200 per night."

Deep Meaning Understanding™

Ask multiple questions and filter results all at once. Answers your most complex questions anywhere: on any connected device, app, or website — at home or on the go.

For example, users can say "show me hotels in san francisco for tomorrow that are less than $300 but not less than $200, are pet friendly, have a gym and a pool, with 3 or 4 stars, staying for 2 nights, and don't include anything that doesn't have wifi."

Collective AI™

Our vision for a powerful architecture for contribution and collaboration among developers, where they can easily extend the functionality of existing Artificial Intelligence domains. Collective AI™ offers comprehensive knowledge, that is always learning, is crowdsourced to domain experts, and is larger than the sum of its parts — ensuring that your solutions and smart IoT devices continue to grow smarter into the future.

A Dedicated Wake Word For Your Brand

Your voice roadmap is a critical extension of your brand. Houndify lets customers interact with your products using your own branded wake word. Control your product voice experience and deepen user engagement with your fully owned built-in voice assistant.

Our vision for the future of Artificial Intelligence: Collective AI™

By giving control to the users of the platform, Houndify can bring a collaborative and Collective AI™ to everyone, everywhere.
