PS: Just weeks after this event, we'll be at The Voice in Healthcare Summit, a one-day event in our hometown of Boston! Be sure to say hello if you attend!


We continue to see new reports and statistics highlighting rapid uptake of voice technologies. A few of the following caught our attention:

  • According to Rock Health121 health AI and machine learning companies raised $2.7 billion across 206 deals between 2011 and 2017.
  • Accenture projects that virtual nursing assistants will provide $20 billion of potential annual value by 2026 (as showcased in a Harvard Business Review article about AI in healthcare)
  • Chatbots will save businesses approximately $11 billion by 2023 by serving as replacements for customer service according to Juniper Research.
  • One in six Americans now own a smart speaker, according to research from NPR and Edison Research – a figure that’s up 128 percent from January 2017.
  • Mary Meeker devoted 23 of her 213 slides to the topic of voice search in her annual Internet Trends report that was just released this month. 
  • Gartner projects that 30% of web browsing sessions will be done without a screen by 2020. comScore suggests that 50% of all searches (an estimated 1.2 trillion) will be voice searches by that year.
