The rapid growth of the market for voice-enabled technologies has been a phenomenon in the past two years. Voice-first technology can understand spoken requests and commands, answer questions and even offer scheduled alerts. Industry firms expect that the combination of natural language processing, AI, and speech recognition will drive significant growth in the adoption of voice technology across multiple dimensions—including patient monitoring, medication management and more.
Some describe this trend of developing software for voice-enabled device user interfaces as Voice First. Speech recognition, for example, will penetrate 80% of mobile devices by 2020
