HOT TECH 3: Voice and eye control
Riding the Christmas hype train, voice control came to the fore, both in our smartphones and via our friends and family networks. Mass adoption is well underway, whether for making queries such as finding an address, or for checking information, submitting orders and making phone calls. According to the US analyst Gartner, 30% of all web searches will be performed using voice control by 2020.
Building bridges in society
This innovation has huge potential to help people with disabilities communicate with their friends and family, or live more independently thanks to solutions such as this exoskeleton. This breakthrough makes perfect sense, and eye control has also gained popularity with a similar approach, facilitating social inclusion. Eye tracking is a technique that detects what you are looking at when and how. It can be used to control a computer.
Returning to voice control, this technology can be combined with translation software to produce certain reports in multiple languages using artificial intelligence.
