AI giant iFlytek teams up with Chinese telcos for voice-activated smart devices

China's artificial intelligence company Iflytek Co. Ltd. is teaming up with China Mobile Ltd., China Unicom (Hong Kong) Ltd. and China Telecom Corp. Ltd. to offer voice-activated smart devices, according to a June 18 South China Morning Post report.

The companies are reportedly developing voice-driven devices that should be able to control home entertainment systems.

The partnership could provide iFlytek access to the three telcos' combined fixed-line broadband customer base of 343.7 million subscribers, according to the report.

The companies may also explore the commercial opportunities of cross-marketing aimed at mobile clients. China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom had reportedly more than 1.4 billion mobile subscribers at the end of April.

Furthermore, iFlytek is also planning to launch a range of other, artificial intelligence-powered devices, including voice-activated smart speakers, earphones and home companion robots.
