The online retail company Alibaba's artificial intelligence subsidiary, Alibaba AI Labs, has teamed together with Audi, Renault, and Honda to help create updated in-vehicle experiences and programs.
As part of the agreements, Alibaba A.I. Labs’ Tmall Genie Auto solution, itself driven by AI tech, will be integrated into the automotive partners’ internet-oriented vehicles in China.
The Alibaba A.I. Labs-developed Tmall Genie is China’s bestselling smart speaker, a fact which highlights the potent customer base that the automotive partnerships can tap into.
“By providing AI technologies, including speech-recognition and Natural Language Processing, Tmall Genie Auto enables car users to access an extensive in-car infotainment portfolio by tapping into Alibaba’s rich content and service ecosystem,” said Miffy Chen, General Manager of Alibaba A.I. Labs, in the company’s press release.
“We are thrilled to partner with global distinguished auto brands such as Audi, Renault and Honda. Together, we can greatly enhance our in-car services and make driving experience more intelligent and interconnected.”
End-users will be able to access Tmall Genie’s voice-operated services, as well as remotely controlling their other Tmall Genie-equipped smart home technologies in the near future.
