As more financial, legal and retail transactions take place online, voice interfaces with strong biometrics provide the safest way to authenticate transactions. No more forgotten pin numbers or passphrases, the linguistic features of our voices deliver the strongest authentication possible while making it easier to identify potential account hackers.
Voice interfaces leave users eyes-free and hands-free reducing the likelihood of accidents and making users more productive, critical in hazardous environments.
Voice instructions and commands can be validated against requirements, standards, databases and expected outcomes in real-time, while users continue their tasks.
Voice-activated panic and help buttons will be integrated into homes and be linked to family or emergency services, allowing them to monitor and respond. Sensors linked to voice-enabled assistants will provide people with warnings of dangerous situations.
Voice-activated locks at home and work will be linked to voice/facial/touch biometrics to deliver controlled access permissions. People will have local and remote control over who has entry, at home and work.
Voice-controlled infotainment and navigation systems in vehicles, allow drivers to concentrate on the road for safer travel. Fully autonomous cars will allow passengers to engage in meetings through integrated voice and video interfaces, while travelling.
Cameras and sensors will be integrated with voice-enabled intelligent assistants that monitor driver performance and car safety checks, providing real-time information to drivers and car manufacturers.
