We are delighted to announce that our new voice application platform is live!!! Head over to our website to request an access and start creating beautiful voice applications for Google Home and Amazon Alexa. Our launch coincides with the release of Google’s smart speaker, Google Home, in France.
The smart speaker market, originally pioneered by Amazon, is expected to hit USD 13 billion by 2024. With several technology giants announcing their plans to take on Amazon and Google in the smart speaker market, it is clear that voice represents the next major interface for communication between humans and machines, and a major new client touchpoint for companies.
Designing a voice application can be complicated. Our platform was created in order to accompany businesses in this voice revolution through radically simplifying the process of building, testing and monitoring voice applications for smart speakers.
“As advocates of voice since 2012, we are delighted to witness the mainstream adoption of this technology and to be a key player in this booming industry. Smartly AI Voice Platform was built with the ambition of widening the access to voice interfaces and introducing conversational intelligence into daily lives of everyone”, Hicham Tahiri, CEO at Smartly AI.
Most voice application platforms today are created for developers. Smartly AI has been designed to enable all the profiles in a project team to effectively work together to create a voice application. This has been made possible by abstracting all the complexity of the conversational AI via a simple and universally understable dialog flow, making conversational AI accessible to all the stakeholders of the voice project: developers, voice user interface designers, marketers, project managers and beta testers.
Our unique framework means that a user has to only create a voice application once on the platform, then can deploy it on whichever voice platforms they want. This saves users a significant amount of time in voice application creation and ensures that the same user experience is replicated across all devices.
Smartly AI’s in house natural language understanding recognizes and classifies requests, and extracts entities (the parts of the speech that give it context, such as times, dates and locations), meaning companies do not need an expert in machine learning to create a voice application. This also means that the platform is completely independant from GAFA and other third parties.
It took us some time, but we are delighted with the result and hope you will be too! Head over to our brand new website and request an access now, all feedback welcome!
