VoiceBox Voice Personal Assistant Patent Portfolio Expands

VoiceBox Technologies Corp., the award-winning innovator of Voice Personal Assistant applications built on its patented Conversational Voice technologies, today announced that it was granted additional US Patents, including one covering China, in the areas of mobile voice technology and advertising. These grants further support the Company’s competitive advantage in the growing Personal Assistant software market. To date, VoiceBox has had 26 patents issued or allowed; and additional 11 patents are pending.

The Company is showcasing product launches leveraging these patents in mobile phone, smart TV, automotive and tablet markets at CES.

While the use of voice as part of a device interface is just beginning to show traction in the marketplace, VoiceBox was an early pioneer. Its founding vision of a single, personalized interface utilizing a new generation of natural voice technology across an ever-diversifying range of consumer devices remains the foundation of the Company’s strategy and expanding product offerings.

The recent patents extend this protection to mobile systems/applications, including those in cars. “The patent processing time when we started was over three years,” said Mike Kennewick, CEO. “We’re happy to see the results – a strong patent portfolio that perfectly aligns to the increasing consumer interest in voice interfaces across devices. Expectations of increasing personalization has driven the quickly emerging Personal Assistant trend, leveraging our patented personalization and advertising capabilities.”

VoiceBox is used in products by brands such as Toyota, Lexus, Pioneer, Dodge, TomTom, Chrysler, Renault, Fiat and Maserati worldwide in over 13 European and Asian languages.

The revocation of Safe Harbor has radically affected data sovereignty strategy in the cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Jeff Miller, Product Management at Cavirin Systems, discussed how to assess these changes across your own cloud strategy, and how you can mitigate risks previously covered under the agreement.
Digital Initiatives create new ways of conducting business, which drive the need for increasingly advanced security and regulatory compliance challenges with exponentially more damaging consequences. In the BMC and Forbes Insights Survey in 2016, 97% of executives said they expect a rise in data breach attempts in the next 12 months. Sixty percent said operations and security teams have only a general understanding of each other’s requirements, resulting in a “SecOps gap” leaving organizations unable to mobilize to protect themselves. The result: many enterprises face unnecessary risks to data loss and production downtime.
In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Raju Shreewastava, founder of Big Data Trunk, provided a fun and simple way to introduce Machine Leaning to anyone and everyone. He solved a machine learning problem and demonstrated an easy way to be able to do machine learning without even coding. Raju Shreewastava is the founder of Big Data Trunk (www.BigDataTrunk.com), a Big Data Training and consulting firm with offices in the United States. He previously led the data warehouse/business intelligence and Big Data teams at Autodesk. He is a contributing author of book on Azure and Big Data published by SAMS.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
Extreme Computing is the ability to leverage highly performant infrastructure and software to accelerate Big Data, machine learning, HPC, and Enterprise applications. High IOPS Storage, low-latency networks, in-memory databases, GPUs and other parallel accelerators are being used to achieve faster results and help businesses make better decisions. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Michael O'Neill, Strategic Business Development at NVIDIA, focused on some of the unique ways extreme computing is being used on IBM Cloud, Amazon, and Microsoft Azure and how to gain access to these resources in the cloud... for FREE!
