Nuance Communications, a provider of conversational AI, announced the name for its upcoming Automotive spin-off: Cerence Inc. This new brand and identity will become official when the business separates from Nuance on October 1, 2019. At that time, Cerence Inc. will become an independent, publicly-traded automotive software company.

The business delivers experiences that make people feel happier, safer, more informed, and more entertained in their cars. Bringing together voice, touch, gesture, emotion, and gaze innovations, it creates deeper connections between drivers, their cars and the digital world around them. It currently powers A.I. in more than 280 million cars on the road globally across more than 40 languages and for nearly every major automaker in the world, including Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford, Geely, GM, SAIC, Toyota, and many more.
