In Mary Meeker’s recent annual report on the State of the Internet, she dedicated a chunk of it to the liftoff of the voice interface. The voice UI makes human interaction with computers possible through speech. Think Alexa and Amazon Echo.
While voice UI has been around for decades, over the years the accuracy of this technology continues to raise its profile. In 1970, machines could recognize words with just 10 percent accuracy. In 2010, it grew to 70 percent accuracy. In 2016, it jumped to 90 percent.
