SoundHound AI has added Generative AI to its Dynamic Interaction solution. The Santa Clara-based company, which specializes in voice-enabled AI and conversational interfaces, has integrated Generative AI technology into its existing platform, which will allow users to interact with their devices hands-free and without wake words.
First launched in November 2022, Dynamic Interaction uses fragment parsing, which breaks speech down into partial utterances, and full-duplex audio-visual integration to deliver real-time, continuous audiovisual feedback. The solution is "engineered for a seamless exchange," ignores off-topic speech, and can decide when to use audio or visual output.
According to SoundHound AI CEO and Co-founder Keyvan Mohajer, the integration of generative AI technology will make the interaction between people and devices more seamless. He said:
“Dynamic Interaction is capable of creating incredible user experiences, and allowing consumers to interact with computers in the most natural, intuitive way. By introducing Generative AI, we’re providing a gateway to a new world of ideas, information, and capabilities – from anywhere, completely hands-free.”
The upgraded version of Dynamic Interaction will also offer effortless, voice-enabled access to Generative AI, which means users can unlock relevant information and ideas by speaking naturally. In addition, developers will be able to adapt the solution to a variety of products and services, for example, in the automotive industry.

The company's portfolio also offers voice AI solutions for the hospitality industry, smart devices, and contact centers. Back in November, SoundHound introduced Dynamic Interaction for food ordering which offers drive-thru, kiosk, and tablet-based voice AI automation.
