How Voice Biometrics Keep Your Contact Center Secure
In this day and age, passwords are no longer enough.
If you’ve ever watched a spy movie, you’ve seen things like vaults and secret rooms protected by multi-factor authentication such as facial verification, fingerprint recognition, and retinal scanning. It’s usually the madman trying to bring down the world that uses these tools. He’s uber-rich, so of course, he could afford it.
This type of technology used to seem like something only imaginable in the context of a high-budget action film, and on top of that would only be available to the billionaire villain character. But over the years, these things have become less fictional concepts and no longer out of reach. Every time you pick up your smartphone, your face gets scanned to authenticate you as the rightful owner of the device and the information on it. Or maybe you have an older model that recognizes your fingerprint. Things we once thought of as unaffordable and unobtainable are now part of everyday life. And we’ve gotten to the point where we don’t even think twice about it.

Conversational AI for Everyone: Conversational Design Beyond Jargon
In our human history, there are benchmarks that heralded our difference from many other creatures on this planet. Some of these benchmarks include discovering cooking and herbal medicine, forging iron, copper, and steel, or shifting from foraging to agriculture. Even before all of these, at some point, we began to talk and communicate in layered and specific ways. Communication was probably first physical (haptic) and visual (look at the cave paintings at Lascaux, France as concrete examples), and verbal in a basic sense.
