TMC launches SmartVoice Conference

December 6, 2013 - 

TMC and HD Voice News have just announced the launch of the SmartVoice Conference, set to be held January 28, 2014 in Miami.

According to the conference organizers, this event will focus on the benefits of Smart Voice services, including voice biometrics and voice analytics.

“Smart Voice is a more efficient and cost-effective way to make calls and in a market filled with Cloud-Based VoIP/UC Services, carriers need innovative new services like this to compete,“ Doug Mohney, HDVoice News Editor-in-Chief and conference chairman said. “Having an event focused solely on Smart Voice Services gives attendees the chance to explore this growing opportunity and see what products, trends and technologies are coming down the pipeline and how it will increase ARPU.”

Registration for the conference is now open online.

BiometricUpdate.com recently took a look an extended look at voice biometrics as a modality, including some early examples, as well as an exploration of potential developments and innovations. Read the full feature here.

Also, based on a survey conducted by Nuance Communications, smartphone users have grown frustrated with current authentication methods and 90% of them are eager to use voice biometrics in place of existing methods.

The overall market for voice and face biometrics is expected to reach nearly $3 billion by the end of 2018. Currently, the United States accounts for the largest share of these markets, though according to a recently-published report, most of the anticipated growth in the market will come from emerging economies, with Asia-Pacific getting special mention in that regard.

In addition, the Biometrics Research Group has noted that mobile devices are expected to drive the bank adoption of voice biometrics, and has also pinpointed that Asia is expected to lead the growth in biometric banking applications.
