Vivoka, a Lorraine-based company and French leader in speech recognition with the Voice Development Kit, announced in early January its participation in the partnership program of NXP Semiconductors, the world's tenth largest supplier of embedded controllers. The addition of NXP's technology to Vivoka's voice recognition artificial intelligence solution will benefit customers of both brands. Vivoka, a French company located in Metz, founded in 2015 by William Simonin, develops a solution that allows any company to add a voice interface to its products, very simply. This solution, called VDK (Voice Development Kit), is suitable for kiosks, robots, mobile applications, headsets… and has allowed it to become the French leader in voice recognition. Vivoka won the coveted Innovation Award in the sustainability and eco-design category at CES 2019.
