In today’s world of technology, we are used to all of our de ices instantly knowing who we are at the touch of a button or just by simply peering into a backlit screen. There are many biometrics that are at our disposal that can help us identify ourselves in this world of tech. Another, less commonly used but potentially impactful biometric that can be utilized is our voices. Everyone has a very unique voice, and thus we can use this to create a secure system, almost similar in security to other biometrics, such as fingerprints, saliva testing, facial recognition, and retina scanning. this technology is called voice recognition software and is a blossoming field today. An example could be when you say “Hey Siri” to your phone and it recognizes your voice instead.
While useful at a personal level, this technology has large implications on industries such as a call center service provider, and HIPAA compliant telehealth platforms which are trusted with keeping patient information secure. Telehealth companies and telemedicine platforms can also make great use of this software as well. It is important to look further into this industry, as it will likely have a huge impact on our daily lives before we know it. By getting involved early, you can be a pioneer and have an advantage over your competition.
