CANADA NEWSWIRE, VANCOUVER, OCTOBER 1, 2020
mCloud Technologies Corp. (TSX-V: MCLD) (OTCQB: MCLDF) (“mCloud” or the “Company”), a leading provider of asset management solutions combining IoT, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence (“AI”), today announced it has entered into a strategic partnership with Aiqudo Inc. (“Aiqudo”), leveraging Aiqudo’s Q Actions® Voice AI platform and Action Kit SDK to bring new voice-enabled interactions to the Company’s AssetCare™️ solutions for Connected Workers.
By combining AssetCare with Aiqudo’s powerful Voice to Action® platform, mobile field workers will be able to interact with AssetCare solutions through a custom digital assistant using natural language.
“mCloud’s partnership with Aiqudo provides AssetCare with a distinct competitive edge as we deliver AssetCare to our oil and gas, nuclear, wind, and healthcare customers all around the world. Connected workers will benefit from reduced training time, ease of use, and support for multiple languages”
In the field, industrial asset operators and field technicians will be able to communicate with experts, find documentation, and pull up relevant asset data instantly and effortlessly. This will expedite the completion of asset inspections and operator rounds – an industry-first using hands-free, simple, and intuitive natural commands via head mounted smart glasses. Professionals will be able to call up information on-demand with a single natural language request, eliminating the need to search using complex queries or special commands.
Here’s a demonstration of mCloud’s AssetCare capabilities on smart glasses with Aiqudo.
“mCloud’s partnership with Aiqudo provides AssetCare with a distinct competitive edge as we deliver AssetCare to our oil and gas, nuclear, wind, and healthcare customers all around the world,” said Dr. Barry Po, mCloud’s President, Connected Solutions and Chief Marketing Officer. “Connected workers will benefit from reduced training time, ease of use, and support for multiple languages.”
“We are excited to power mCloud solutions with our Voice to Action platform, making it easier for connected workers using AssetCare to get things done safely and quickly,” said Dr. Rajat Mukherjee, Aiqudo’s Co-Founder and CTO. “Our flexible NLU and powerful Action Engine are perfect for creating custom voice experiences for applications on smart glasses and smartphones.”
Aiqudo technology will join the growing set of advanced capabilities mCloud is now delivering by way of its recent acquisition of kanepi Group Pty Ltd. (“kanepi”). The Company announced on September 22 it expected to roll out new Connected Worker capabilities to 1,000 workers in China by the end of the year, targeting over 20,000 in 2021.
