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.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

We heard for many years how developing nations would be able to develop mobile-phone networks quickly, perhaps even leapfrog developed nations, because their lack of traditional, wired networks would not inhibit them from deploying the new technology. Now there is talk of history repeating itself with the Industrial Internet--a key aspect of the emerging Internet of Things. For example, Guo Ping, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Chinese electronics giant Huawei, said in a recent report from the World Economic Forum, "The Industrial Internet will afford emerging markets a unique opportunity ...

Containers and microservices have become topics of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 16th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York June 9-11 will find fresh new content in a new track called PaaS | Containers & Microservices Containers are not being considered for the first time by the cloud community, but a current era of re-consideration has pushed them to the top of the cloud agenda. With the launch of Docker's initial release in March of 2013, interest was revved up several notches. Then late last...
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
So I guess we’ve officially entered a new era of lean and mean.

It’s a Trend! This announcement comes just as...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
