SoundHound Inc. Principal Scientist Bernard Mont-Reynaud is Named Inventor of the Year

SoundHound Inc. is proud to congratulate principal scientist, Bernard Mont-Reynaud for being named “Inventor of the Year” by the Silicon Valley Intellectual Property Law Association. Over the years, this 5,000-member society has awarded 42 other awards, including to such notables as the co-founder of Fairchild Semiconductor, Robert Noyce and the inventor of the microprocessor, Marcian “Ted” Hoff.

In his 10 years at SoundHound Inc. Bernard has been an innovation leader and one of the driving forces behind the technology that has spurred the rapid adoption of the Houndify Voice AI platform among leading brands. Most notably, Bernard is the co-inventor of conversation state technology that enables natural follow-up queries and provides the ability to modularize natural language domains. His inventions make our Collective AI™ architecture scalable, allowing developers to integrate new domains into their voice assistants and build upon existing functions.

I am truly honored to be the recipient of this year’s prestigious SVIPLA’s Inventor of the Year Award,” Bernard stated. “To be recognized in the same category as Silicon Valley giants such as Bob Noyce and Marcian “Ted” Hoff is humbling. I look forward to making continued impactful contributions at SoundHound Inc. that will help shape the next decade-plus of voice technologies.

A graduate of Ecole Polytechnique in Paris, France, Bernard was awarded his Ph.D. in computer science from Stanford University. Since then, his research has focused on the analysis, visualization and perception of music and audio, along with advanced UI design and natural language understanding.

We’re truly excited to work with Bernard as he continues to follow his passion of finding technological solutions to improve all of our lives.
