In order to achieve their mission, there are several important parts of puzzle which have to be gradually implemented in order to create a true alternative reality world which come under the forms of:

  1. Stunningly looking, constantly changing persistent Virtual Reality environment (world) which can be explored by thousands of people at the same time.
  2. Ability to create, build and express yourself and, share and explore creations of others.
  3. Fully own and monetize your creations. Be a true and the only owner of your creations. Make money by selling your items in the open and independent marketplaces. Be a part of fully working economy.

All those steps mentioned above are crucial for a world which will exist for hundreds of years from now. The team at Somnium Space has already implemented Step 1 where people are currently enjoying themselves inside their persistent and beautiful VR World. The amazing team has already developed a fully functioning world full of events, gatherings and fun places to explore. People are enjoying live concerts, educational talks and sports competitions or simply sitting in the park and watching birds flying by…

This may sound like one of the recent movies that has shaken up the VR industry, but you need to experience it yourself to believe it.

The project doesn’t stop here as the two other steps need to be implemented and there are also some incredible ideas that involve the use of blockchain and a decentralized economy.

A representative of cutting edge Czech company from Brno to present voice biometrics and speech analytics technologies at PICANTE TECH Conference Europe 2019.

 

Wondering what voice biometrics is? Well, we have a short answer to it. Voice biometrics works by digitizing a profile of a person’s speech to produce a stored model voice print or template.

The tones collectively identify the speaker’s unique voiceprint. Voice prints are stored in databases in a manner similar to the storing of fingerprints or other biometric data.

Speech analytics is the process of analyzing voice recordings or live customer calls to contact centers with speech recognition software to find useful information and provide quality assurance. Speech analytics software identifies words and analyzes audio patterns to detect emotions and stress in a speaker’s voice.

At PICANTE TECH Conference Europe (TCE2019), which will take place in Prague on the 3rd of September at Vienna House Andel’s Prague, Paul Morris, Business Development Manager at Phonexia, will explain more about how Phonexia’s technology works during a keynote presentation.

Paul will present how a brand new generation of Voice Biometrics technology from Phonexia allows users such as banking, insurance, and telco call and contact centers to be able to quicken and streamline customer interaction, improve overall the customer and employee experience, reduce unnecessary costs, heighten efficiency, increase security and detect fraud.
