Dialpad buys TalkIQ and adds AI to UberConference and other services


Dialpad, a business communications services firm whose products include business conference provider UberConference, announced this week it has acquired TalkIQ, which provides real-time speech recognition.

The resulting combination, Dialpad said, will allow it to deliver VoiceAI that provides actionable intelligence from conversations as they happen. Although Dialpad previously offered voice-to-text transcripts of voice mail, this is the first time it is employing artificial intelligence on its platform.
