VoiceBox Technologies, a global provider of contextual voice and natural language understanding (NLU) technologies for automotive, mobile and IoT products, announced the intent to become a Samsung Artik Cloud Platform collaborator.  The strategy to deliver the VoiceBox experience to a growing agnostic IoT ecosystem that supports device interoperability and data-driven apps and services fulfills the open requirements essential for VoiceBox’s IoT plans.

“Clearly voice will play a critical interface role as the world of the Internet of Things emerges- a world of many devices- some of which won’t have displays,” said Chetan Sharma, CEO, Chetan Sharma Consulting – a management consulting firm

VoiceBox understands that IoT developers face a number of challenges easily solved by using the Artik Cloud Platform.  Hurdles like managing data from devices using a variety of protocols, ensuring interoperability across siloed ecosystems, working with heterogeneous data, reducing latency, protecting data privacy, and accessing data from disparate clouds- are readily cleared when utilizing Artik tools and services.

“Our vision of delivering a common, intelligent IoT interface that is multi-device, cross-device and multi-user, is quickly extended by adopting standards-bridging platforms like Artik Cloud,” said Mike Kennewick, VoiceBox’s CEO.

A pioneer in providing intelligent, contextual voice solutions, VoiceBox’s award-winning technology can be found in many of today’s connected cars, smartphones and wearables. Additionally, the company provides intelligent, contextual voice solutions for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) seeking to integrate voice controls across a range of products and services for the Internet of Things market.
