Kakao technology companies, Hyundai and Kia have agreed to develop and adopt server-based speech recognition technology into the Genesis G70 model by utilizing the AI platform by Kakao called Kakao I and will begin in September this year.

They say the server-based speech recognition technology is the first service that combines Kakao I that allows drivers to navigate and locate destinations like restaurants and hotels through speech recognition.

Drivers get accurate navigation information just mention the word command and destination by pressing the voice search button on the steering wheel. The driver lists the relevant keywords and navigation information sent to the Kakao Maps server, then transferred to the car navigation system.

Kakao has developed this technology since last year and plans to continue working for the commercialization of connected cars. Early last month Cocoa also announced a collaboration with Volkswagen to develop smart and connected cars.

Kakao is one of many global internet giants like Google, Amazon and IBM that acquire core AI technologies, such as machine learning, automatic translation, autonomous cars and intelligent robots.
