ModiFace Launches Voice-Enabled Augmented Reality Mirror Software Powered by SoundHound Inc.'s Houndify Voice-Enabled AI Platform

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 3, 2017) - ModiFace Inc., the leading provider of intelligent augmented technology for the beauty and medical industries, and SoundHound Inc., the leading innovator in speech recognition and voice-enabled AI and conversational intelligence technologies, today are announcing a partnership to create the ultimate smart mirror software. By leveraging SoundHound's industry leading Houndify voice-enabled AI platform in ModiFace's AR mirror software, both brands and customers will be able to interact with a magic mirror using only their voices and their live video.

The new voice-enabled Smart Mirror software will be available for beauty brands to use both in-store and in the brand's smartphone AR applications. Using the new Houndify-Powered AR technology, customers can speak the types of colors or products that they would like on their faces and the mirror listens and implements their requests. All they have to do is give verbal commands like, "Add red lipstick and pink blush," and the mirror shows them what they would look like with those makeup effects. The following video provides a demo of the new technology: https://youtu.be/EOLgeO2WL30

"Voice is a key technology for creating the ultimate mirror experience, and Houndify is by far the most accurate voice recognition system on the market," said Parham Aarabi, founder and CEO of ModiFace. "Combining ModiFace's industry leading AR technology with Houndify's voice technology creates an unparalleled experience for customers and brands."

"The implementation of the Houndify technology into ModiFace's AR technology is a great example of how AI and voice can transform an industry," said Keyvan Mohajer, co-founder / CEO of SoundHound Inc. "We see this as a potential game changer for enabling brands to connect more closely with their customers to experience their products in a direct and personal way."

Houndify is the first independent AI platform that enables developers and business owners to deploy it anywhere and retain control of their brand and users, while differentiating and innovating. Houndify provides all the technology ingredients necessary for voice and AI integration, including the world's fastest speech recognition, the most sophisticated natural language understanding, easy to use developer tools, knowledge graphs, and a large and rapidly growing number of domains.
