The demand for voice AI has consistently been increasing due to its potential to enhance and improve user experiences and productivity across different sectors such as automotive, healthcare, and foodservice.

According to GlobalData’s Technology Foresights, the widespread adoption of voice AI is evident in the significant increase in patent applications in the field of intelligent voice assistants. The number of patents filed increased from 1,889 in 2018 to 3,834 in 2023.

NLP Progress

Tejal Hartalkar, Senior Disruptive Tech Analyst at GlobalData, emphasized the importance of progress in natural language processing (NLP) and contextual understanding in the future of deploying voice AI in ambient computing.

By enhancing NLP capabilities, AI systems can better interpret and respond to human language, allowing for more intuitive and natural communication. This is especially vital in ambient computing scenarios, where users may interact with multiple devices and systems simultaneously, often in dynamic and unpredictable environments.

Moreover, improvements in contextual understanding enable AI systems to grasp the broader context of a conversation, including nuances, intents, and situational cues. This deep understanding facilitates more personalized and contextually relevant interactions, enhancing the user experience and increasing the effectiveness of voice-based applications in ambient computing settings.

“Voice AI is poised to become the primary interface for ambient computing, which refers to the seamless integration of technology into our surroundings, facilitating intuitive and effortless interactions with interconnected devices and services.”

Industry Implementation

The impact of voice AI is evident in various industries, offering concrete advantages such as customized interactions and in-vehicle support in the automotive sector, as well as efficient patient care and medical transcription in healthcare.
