Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) has announced the next-generation Dragon Assistant designed for Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) RealSense technology, an entirely new conversational personal assistant that works with your favorite websites and applications.
The new offering is available on Acer, Dell, HP and Lenovo 2 in 1, tablet, Ultrabook, notebook, and AIO devices, and coming in devices from Asus and Toshiba in early 2014. For the first time, Dragon Assistant will be available on a tablet, coming first from Lenovo in early 2014.
Dragon Assistant lets you have an ongoing dialogue with your Intel-powered 2 in 1, tablet, Ultrabook, notebook, and all-in-one devices. Simply tell it to play music, get answers, connect with friends and find content all by using your voice. Dragon Assistant even lets you check your calendar, get maps and directions, find flights or book a dinner reservation.
“Our vision with Intel RealSense technology is to make computing more immersive and enable human-like natural interaction,” said Mooly Eden, senior vice president, general manager perceptual computing, Intel. “Intel has worked closely with Nuance at the system level for Intel-based devices; to create a leading voice solution that understands how humans speak, and searches like humans search, rather than forcing us to learn new commands to communicate with our devices.”
