Voice & conversational tech is here, and it's here to stay.
Consider these data points... Over 55% of homes will own a voice device by 2024 and smart speakers are among the top-selling consumer electronic products with global sales set to surpass $30 billion in the next three years.
Fundamentally, voice is a technology not in search of a use case. It's an opportunity waiting to be explored. For every new generation, voice apps will make life faster and easier, and their use will become ambient, ever-present... reducing the friction for the consumer and we all know what happens when tech reduces friction, it booms.
Voice is already the primary interface in healthcare... from scientists discussing findings to a GP speaking to a patient. The beauty of vocal interactions is that they convey a lot more information than text or image. It has a rich sub-strata of metadata that can be utilised by leveraging our smartphones or smart speakers. By utilising natural language processing algorithms, cloud computing and machine learning, voice interfaces can underpin digital healthcare solutions for years to come.
In financial services, the application of conversational tech will predominantly be deployed to reduce the cost to serve. The previous models of branch networks, contact centres and personal advisors has impacted profitability. Voice applications are another step in scalable, cheap customer touchpoints that are underpinned by data-processing which can increase customer contact through-put... and increase consistency of outcome.
