AI and Communication: Machines That Can 'Hear' and 'Understand' Voices

Machine learning is one of the most important and powerful types of AI. Blind straight algorithms can never be as beneficial for businesses and society as the ones that can learn and adapt to inputs and trends.

The data generated every day is so massive that no imaginable manpower can comprehend it and turn it into valuable and applicable insights without the help of smart machines. To give an idea, IDC estimated that the digital universe is doubling its size yearly and would reach 44 ZB in 2020 from 4.4 ZB of data generated in 2013. It also forecasted that the big data technology and services market will grow at a 26.4% compound annual growth rate to $41.5 billion through 2018, or about six times the growth rate of the overall information technology market. The ability to draw insights and the ability to optimally monetize available data would place companies in a unique position challenging established rules and processes.

There is already a range of successful FinTech players applying machine learning for better service and higher efficiency. Many startups have disrupted the FinTech ecosystem with machine learning as their key technology.

Having explored the ways FinTech companies are applying machine learning, let’s look at the kitchen – the companies enabling those opportunities. There is a range of software moguls dedicated to enabling machines to do amazing work fast and efficiently.

Earlier this month, HBR published an insightful article authored by H. James Wilson, Sharad Sachdev, and Allan Alter on the ways companies are using machine learning to get faster and more efficient.

One of the greatest applications of machine learning in the banking industry has enabled financial institutions inherently heavy on paperwork to let machines bring paper to digital. Scanning images, understanding voices, and text are one of the most complex tasks to teach a machine.

This time, we will look at companies enabling organizations to automate vocal communication. Powerful solutions apply NLP technology for machines to hear and understand voices. Given that in the coming years, video banking will be paying tribute to traditional branches, voice scanning will be an important part of the service to enhance operations.
