Driving and mobile devices don’t mix well if your smartphone or tablet ends up breaking your focus on driving. But with voice-enabled apps, you can still interact with your device for much-needed information.
Nuance has unveiled its new project which it hopes will become a challenger to Siri and Google Now. The project, which is codenamed Wintermute – after the AI in William Gibson’s novel Neuromancer, is a cross-platform, cloud-based virtual assistant.

Through the Nina platform, app developers can now integrate voice-control into their apps meant for business, such as customer service or banking apps, which also includes biometrics and security. Nina is a cloud-based service that runs off of Nuance’s servers….
