Since the rise of modern computing, human has never ceased to want to communicate with the machine, like a real consecration in the field of HMI (human-machine interaction).
As you probably already know, it is possible to interact with different systems through programming languages developed and used for several years.
However, this communication remains very virtual.
The machine’s understanding of natural language, in English NLP (Natural Language Processing), quickly proved to be essential in order to renew this way of communicating.
Originally very focused on text recognition, the research quickly turned towards the recognition of the human voice, as soon as technical progress made it possible.
By 2020, 40% of consumers will prefer interactions with a voice assistant
