IBM Research calls Voice Biometrics one of the top five innovations with life-changing potential


Voice biometrics is expected to hit its stride in the next five years as its usage rises in the enterprise, among consumers, and in conjunction with other biometrics capabilities, according to recent IBM research. Voice biometrics was a focal point of IBM's sixth annual "IBM 5 in 5," a list of innovations that, according to IBM, have the potential to change the way people work, live, and interact during the next five years. IBM found that problems with voice biometrics, such as error rates in voice recognition, have been greatly reduced as the technology has developed. "We have seen great progress in the last three years," David Nahamoo, IBM fellow and chief technology officer for speech, says. "As performance gets better, we are seeing more adoption, and voice biometrics will hit the prime time, from small adoption to large, in the next five years."
