Early in last month, a famous Taiwanese actress was in trouble with Phone fraud, she lose over 1 million dollars. This is not the only case I’ve heard. Just in last year, another famous actress from Hong Kong, been cheated over 0.1 million dollars. The scammers gave them telephone call and fraud their money. For us, this may seems so ridiculous, but it happens a lot, normal people may also encounter those problems but they just may just feel ashamed to share with others.
As far as I am concerned, most of those cases didn’t have a good ending, the scammers just escaped with Ill-gotten gains.
However, in February of 2015, a special news attract my eyes. It says that the police of HuaiYin cracked a Phone fraud, the suspect is a male who disguise as a female in the other end of phone. The technology of speaker recognition make big contribution to the success of arrested him.
As we can see from this successful case, speaker recognition is really becomes a very important tool of Identity verification. Fingerprint technology is already very mature and been used in so many aspect in our daily life. However, every technology will have its limitation. In dealing with telecommunications fraud, voiceprint technology plays a more important role.
Since speaker recognition technology is still not a very mature technology, there are many people who don’t trust it. But I think with the development of this technology and artificial intelligent, speaker recognition will for sure be widely used and facilitate our life.
