Wcities, the travel content publisher of city guides, is partnering with SoundHound to add location and event data to the Houndify voice artificial intelligence platform.
The partnership will give Houndify access to information on more than 3 million events in more than 20,000 cities worldwide.
The information from Wcities includes city guides, event aggregators, tours and activities by location.
The packaging is intended to provide easier voice access to information. Sample queries include “What is there to do around here?” “What exhibits are at the Met this weekend?” and “Show concerts on the East Side this week.”
“Gaining access to this trove of rich local content enables people to engage more deeply with the communities they live in and visit, in an easily accessible way through voice,” stated Kamyar Mohajer, vice president of corporate strategy and international expansion at SoundHound Inc.
