Banks and financial institutions and voice biometrics for customer verification purposes

Beyond a set of reluctances, lapses, worries and bottlenecks related to environmental factors such as background noise and network issues likely to affect the biometrics market, it is obvious that, many industry verticals across the world adopt biometrics because of increasing security, privacy and authentication concerns, and compliance requirements. Banks and financial institutions are significant adopters of voice biometrics for customer verification purposes. 
In our mobile banking era, Voice recognition is affordable, user-friendly, and does not require any hardware or heavy investment. 
For those who are unfamiliar, Voice biometrics enable the comparison of a person's voice, including pitch, vocal tract, harmonics, and dialect, with a sample stored in the database for identity verification. Voice biometric solutions in the BFSI sector; eliminate the need for PIN-based passwords. 
For instance, the Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank deployed biometric solutions by Nuance Communications f…

Software-Defined Sensors for the Internet of Things

Smart sensors are now part of our working and living environments with their abilities to help us streamline each experience.
Henceforth IoT developers and enterprises can quickly prototype new smart sensors in order to monitor, learn and capture insights from the existing physical things in their environment. On this momentum, Connectikpeople salutes the introduction of the Helium Sensor Development Kit.
Connectikpeople observes that, the Helium Sensor Development Kit was created to accelerate time to market for IoT developers and enterprise solution providers. Helium can enable users to focus on adding intelligence.
The Helium Sensor Development Kit can inter alia :let enterprise developers and solution providers test and demonstrate the high value of smart IoT applications before moving deeper into the hardware and manufacturing process.

Connected home platforms together into one interface with the connected car

From lapses and reluctances in terms of security and performance, fragmentation and privacy, the dynamic behind connected homes and connected cars, SmartThings and Internet of Thing is progressively mature and reliable in terms of technologies, services, security and performance.
SmartThings for the home and Vinli for the car are coming together with the goal to offer users a streamlined home automation experience.
Connectikpeople encourages this integration that can end the fragmentation between competing connected home and connected car systems.
Built on the Vinli platform, Vinli Home Connect brings compatible connected home platforms together into one interface with the connected car. 
Connectikpeople observes that the new Vinli Home Connect app integrates comprehensive automation control into a single interface. Temperature, lighting, security, and more can all be managed or monitored using one app, across platforms and manufacturers.
