Baidu announced on Thursday that its smart voice business has reached a partnership deal with Nio. The Chinese tech giant will enable the electric vehicle maker to improve the in-car voice assistant experience based on its DuerOS voice-enabled technology. Baidu, which reportedly led a $600 million funding round in Nio back in early 2017, will collaborate with the EV upstart as a “media and content ecosystem provider,” the company told Chinese media without revealing further details. Last October, Chinese artificial intelligence firm iFlytek told investors that it offers its voice assistant solutions to Nio’s three crossover vehicles. [36Kr, in Chinese]
