Alexey Khitrov, President of the American Branch STC, to Speak at SpeechTek 2015!

Join us at SpeechTek 2015 in New York City, August 17-19! Hear Alexey Khitrov's presentation, exploring the future of account login on mobile platforms through various combinations of voice and face biometrics, including STC’s deployment of a voice+face biometric solution at Wells Fargo and the newest generation of password-fighting solutions: Voice.Swipe, which combines voice biometric and visual UI clues known to a specific user.

This year, SpeechTEK is turning 20! Through the years, the industry has seen so many exciting changes, from the 90's when ASR was first made available to consumers and the first IVR from BellSouth was introduced, to today, when we can speak to our computers, phones, cars, and more. We've witnessed incredible innovations and look forward to the future and all of the ways speech technologies can be used to help make your job easier.

Recent advances in speech technologies have expanded their use in new products and services. Natural language processing is improving the dialogue structure of IVR systems and making them easier to use. Deep neural nets are improving the accuracy of speech recognition systems. Visual IVR is adding a new dimension—graphical user interface—to traditional voice-only IVR systems. Speech synthesis systems are improving both the number of languages supported as well as the quality of the generated speech. Advances in biometrics are improving security and preventing unauthorized access of devices and data.

SpeechTEK is a single source for information about all these advances in technologies and their use. Participate in sessions for business management, user interface design and experience, and new technologies (such as virtual agents, visual IVR, biometrics, and analytics). Come to SpeechTEK to learn what is possible so you can make educated decisions about the use of speech technologies to enhance your business’s bottom line. If you’re looking for more detailed information, SpeechTEK University offers pre- and postconference half-day courses on the latest speech techniques and technologies.
