In this week’s #AIMonday, we’ll introduce you to a tech company implementing voice AI technology to enhance the fast food restaurant industry: Hi.Auto.

Hi.Auto is the online home of Hi Auto, a tech company focused on the development and deployment of advanced voice AI technology for the fast food industry, also known as the quick service restaurant (QSR) industry. Through its proprietary natural language processing (NLP) and voice recognition technologies, Hi Auto offers solutions that aim to improve efficiency and customer engagement in drive-thru services. The company has achieved recognition for its innovations, including the ability to clone human voices for use in automated service systems, and has partnered with various restaurant chains to implement its systems across the United States. In January 2024, the Israel-based company was named “Innovator of the Year” at the Checkers & Rally’s annual convention. The event brought together more than 300 franchisees, vendors, and Restaurant Support Center employees to honor excellence and introduce new initiatives.1

Driven by a commitment to overcome the challenges presented by ambient noise in drive-thru environments, Hi Auto assembled a diverse team, including specialists in speech recognition from automotive noise-cancellation fields, and veterans from Google’s voice technology divisions. This team’s objective was to create a system capable of understanding customer orders accurately amidst the challenging acoustic environment of a drive-thru, characterized by the din of idling engines and other external sounds. The innovation led to an AI platform that not only recognizes speech with clarity but also fosters a conversational interface that closely mimics human interaction. This technology is designed to enhance operational efficiencies for quick service restaurants by streamlining the ordering process, improving accuracy, facilitating effective upselling, shortening customer wait times, and optimizing staff deployment. Hi Auto’s solution marks a technological leap forward in bringing AI into customer service, combining tech savvy with real-world usefulness for the restaurant scene.

Roy Baharav and Eyal Shapira, the co-founders of Hi Auto, both have a background in AI systems for audio: Roy in complex AI systems at Google, and Eyal in natural language processing (NLP) technology and chat interfacing. Their choice of a .Auto domain for Hi Auto carries strategic advantages, especially when it comes to establishing a strong online presence. An exact match domain name like Hi.Auto directly reflects the company’s core business and innovation in automotive-related voice technology, making it immediately clear to anyone visiting the site what Hi Auto specializes in. Moreover, a .Auto domain enhances the brand’s visibility and searchability to those specifically interested in automotive innovations or AI technologies for the quick service restaurant industry. This specialized domain not only helps distinguish Hi Auto from competitors but also helps boost its credibility and authority in the field. It signals to customers, partners, and investors that Hi Auto is a dedicated player in the intersection of automotive technology and AI, positioning it as a forward-thinking and industry-specific resource.
