A history of dedicated voice technology devices, part 5

What does history teach us about the future?

What I see are two opposing technology trends happening simultaneously. One side trends towards getting more isolated while the other trend is to continuously increase the connection between technologies.

That’s why so many people like things like Facebook and Twitter. These things are not on your local device but rather all your devices are connected to them. We are isolated from needing to manage these technologies but simultaneously enjoy the multiverse connections they provide.

The future lies with an augmented intelligence connection between your thoughts and your tools.

Today’s voice technology tool set is already building in the future

Philips released the first cloud based professional dictation solution which allows for breakthrough workflow and document work management



Philips released SpeechAir, the world’s first SMART dictation recorder running on the Android operating system. Incredibly it is the world’s foremost completely OPEN system as it allows you to load any Android app you want but also a completely closed system because it can optionally lock down for security purposes.

Somewhere along the timeline there exists that one iconic moment that at some point in the future we will be able to look back and see the tipping point which led to whatever “now” is.

While trying to look into the future may not be easy, we can certainly consider leveraging advancements in the today’s professional voice technology devices. As proven again and again in history, the investments required in time and energy to improve almost always pay off.

Please leave us a comment below with what you think is the vision for the future as it relates to voice technology.
