The invention of the technologies used in the global pandemic was to upgrade the standard procedure. Be it virtual communication channels or video conferencing tools, everything aims at bringing newness to the regular team meetings. In this article at Strategy+Business, Kevin Maney defines how speech, facial, and digital recognition have become popular after the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Post-Pandemic Phase
The World Health Organization (WHO) suggests that the novel coronavirus may not go away completely. The standard demands of social distancing as a routine.
Organizations have been using screen-tapping and card-swiping techniques to maintain staff security. However, to avoid the highly sensitive state of bacterial infection, avoiding close contact of human touch is the best practice.
What to Expect Next?
Facial or speech recognition is the best solution to avoid the deadly contagion. You would see a considerable shift from touch to biometric identification. Some old techniques might survive, but advanced technologies are to drive remarkable changes.
- Millions of users have been comfortably using speech recognition devices and tools like Siri on their iPhones. Since technology understands us, the usage of virtual versions would increase. You need not press the button to use an elevator. Give the command, and it takes you to the desired floor. Soon, you can operate a vending machine with a voice command. Even the new-age ATMs would turn into a virtual operating machine.
- In terms of facial recognition, technology has become highly sophisticated. Using an infrared camera and facial recognition, users could spot a virus-infected person from 15 feet. The facial identification technique has also become highly accurate. Thus, in the forthcoming era, your ATM or checkout system would ask for face identification. Physical keys will disappear, and digital money would trend.
Once the global economy overcomes the pandemic crisis, we must adjust to the new technologies to get over the COVID-19 nightmare. Click on the following link to read the original article: https://www.strategy-business.com/blog/Technology-for-a-no-touch-world?gko=83923
