Vodafone voice ID
If a Vodafone customer rings the call center, the new Voice Signature software will recognise the consumer by the tone of their voice. This allows for quicker and personalised customer service as well as making all transactions more secure.
Why it matters
The biometric voice analysis recognises your voice, and ultimately all the rest of the information associated with your profile without ever having to share personal information with a stranger in a call centre. Can this application be used in other business sectors where security is at the forefront of customer engagement?
The Dailyplaces App, which is comparable to foursquare, has launched a new feature which allows users to create a virtual chat room in the place they just checked into. Other Users who stay at the same place are able to join the chat and communicate with other visitors.
Weddar is a socially powered weather app that gives us more personalised, localised and potentially more accurate reports than traditional services. A people-powered weather service where we can report how the weather feels, request weather reports and share them with friends. This not only gives hyper-local weather reports but also gives a more subjective view.
