Global Markets and Technologies for Voice Recognition

NEW YORK, Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Global Markets and Technologies for Voice Recognition

http://www.reportlinker.com/p01075887/Global-Markets-and-Technologies-fo...

REASONS FOR THE STUDY AND ITS IMPORTANCE

In the coming decade, observers of the evolution in voice recognition technologies will no doubt look back to 2012 as the tipping point year – the time when speech adoption finally broke away from the enterprise niche market of interactive voice response (IVR) solutions into broader uses that include consumer and health care sectors. Advances in machine learning and statistical data-mining techniques, coupled with the ubiquitous adoption of mobile devices, are helping voice recognition solutions get a new lease on life. With global software revenues expected to reach $16.7 billion by 2017, this maturing industry continues to owe much of its growth to advances in the critical triad of automatic speech recognition (ASR), text-to-speech (TTS), and speaker verification (SV) technologies.Companies, across all sectors and from every part of the voice recognition supply chain, seek a competitive edge that will differentiate them in an increasingly crowded business environment. They want to create and use products that can help them to be nimble and efficient and that will help them grow their customer base. Converging technologies make partnerships a compelling way to introduce new products; however, an uncertain global economy is offering fewer incentives to give rise to the number of mergers and acquisitions that characterized the voice recognition (VR) space earlier in the new millennium.The second decade of the millennium has ushered in new uses for voice recognition products as collaborative consumption, fueled by the proliferation of social networks, empowers everyone to be potentially not only media consumers, but also producers of new applications. VR technologies help users identify (biometrics), codify (health care), search (voice search), navigate (voice-enabled navigation), and control (connected home). These technologies also help customers comply with privacy, safety and security requirements dictated by law and by user expectations.In the next five years companies will pair VR technologies with the latest research in artificial intelligence and augmented reality, creating a new generation of compelling products. Consumers, primed by the success of the Siri personal assistant, will expect products that not only predict their preferences but also offer new, interactive ways to enhance their emotional experiences.To address the rapidly growing mobile traffic demand of the emerging middle class in Africa and Asia as well as in the highly developed geographic regions of North America and Europe, voice recognition providers are partnering with manufacturers that are loading their products with voice-activated multimodal options. With the help of these applications, drivers can navigate to their destinations; workers can voice-pick warehouse inventory; doctors can automate medical transcription processes; lawyers can build their cases with e-discovery products; homeowners control their environmental and security systems; and users of smart devices can access applications by voice commands.Geographic regions that have built out their broadband networks offer the best potential for growth, especially in those areas where mobile devices are the primary mode for such frequently used functions as entertainment, navigation and banking.

Products and applications that are smart, cost-effective and intuitive will hold the keys to the VR kingdom in the next five years. Battle lines, drawn in the 2012 turf wars between Google, Samsung and Apple, where each has fought for direct integration into mobile operating systems, indicate just how valuable these companies perceive the stakes to be not only in the mobile market but also in capturing the imagination and dollars of an ever-expanding global user base.

With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience? That richer, more fully integrated experience comes about through a Communications Platform as a Service which allows for messaging, screen sharing, video...

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lee Williams, a producer of the first smartphones and tablets, will talk about how he is now applying his experience in mobile technology to the design and development of the next generation of Environmental and Sustainability Services at ETwater. He will explain how M2M controllers work through wirelessly connected remote controls; and specifically delve into a retrofit option that reverse-engineers control codes of existing conventional controller systems so they don't have to be replaced and are instantly converted to become smart, connected devices.
SYS-CON Events announced today that IceWarp will exhibit at the 17th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on November 3–5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. IceWarp, the leader of cloud and on-premise messaging, delivers secured email, chat, documents, conferencing and collaboration to today's mobile workforce, all in one unified interface
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
As more and more data is generated from a variety of connected devices, the need to get insights from this data and predict future behavior and trends is increasingly essential for businesses.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...
