White Paper By: Strategy Analytics
Speech is a singularly efficient way for humans to express ideas and desires. It is therefore unsurprising that we have always wanted to extend this expeditious communications mechanism with and command machines by voice.
As IoT applications proliferate they present new and innovative ways to collaborate, communicate and interact, both from a human and machine perspective. While most of the focus in the IoT has been on data, the integration of voice into IoT applications offers a versatile method to provide human interaction; communication and control. And with proper implementation and consideration for relevance, costs and human factors, voice can provide a more flexible user experience in a more economical way than traditional methods such as touch screens or data input.
This white paper examines the importance of voice in IoT applications and identifies use cases and opportunities.
