Voice technology is sweeping the world, as assistants like Amazon's Alexa, Google Assistant and smart speakers like China's "Little Fish" capture consumers' imagination.

Developments in speech recognition and natural language processing (NLP) mean we can now talk to computers in a way considered science fiction just a few years ago. At just five percent, speech recognition error rates are now at human parity and improving all the time.1

Voice is fundamentally a highly intuitive way to interact and, as such, there is the potential for it to become consumers' primary means of interaction with technology over the coming years.
