TAIPEI, Taiwan, May 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- , the global leading gaming brand, today announced a collaboration between MSI and Intel Capital portfolio company to develop edge AI computing.
Expanding MSI’s “voice in game” feature through Amazon Alexa, the company is using Syntiant’s Neural Decision Processors along with Intel technology to provide users access to voice command features regardless of cloud connectivity.
“We’ve always said voice is the new interface between people and technology,” said Kurt Busch, CEO of Syntiant. “Just as people use voice commands for smartphone functionality, gamers want the same experience, and we are thrilled our technology will help a great partner such as MSI deliver voice control at the edge.”
Syntiant technology will enable MSI users to perform a variety of voice functions and commands, including task execution on a notebook or personal computer, RGB effects and gameplay assists. It also will provide the ability to control a smart home device while acting as an always-on gateway to cloud-based voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa.
“As we combine Intel’s superb capabilities with Syntiant’s ultra-low-power, always-on neural network processors, we’re able to bring voice recognition to the edge, offering users an exceptional gaming experience whether online or offline,” said Clark Peng, vice president, head of product management at MSI.
Demonstrations of MSI products with Syntiant technology are available at Computex 2019 in Taiwan, being held at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center (Booth1: L0818/Gaming & XR Area).
