SoundHound is learning some new AI tricks. The Silicon Valley startup, which creates AI-based voice services, has fetched $100 million in strategic investment capital as it expands its offerings. In addition to its eponymous music recognition app, SoundHound offers its Hound voice search app and Houndify voice platform for companies to create AI-powered voice services. The company’s tech has become the de facto alternative for voice search in a market crowded with the industry’s biggest players.
