Fintech in a nutshell: the financial technology sector which encompasses firms that use technology-based systems either to provide financial services and products directly or to make the financial system more efficient.

It has been reported over the past years that Fintech is a rapidly growing sector. The recent reports show that in the first half of 2018, investment in fintech companies in Europe alone reached €23 billion.

Besides the huge investment return, the fintech sector brings rewards including innovation and job creation, but also challenges, such as data and consumer protection issues, and the risk of exacerbating financial volatility or cybercrime.

To tackle these multi-disciplinary challenges, policy- and lawmakers in the European Union (EU) have adopted and announced several initiatives, for instance on intra-EU payment services, data protection, crowdfunding, and regulatory sandboxes.

In 2019 the European Commission launched a study to analyze the challenges for the European players and possible policy measures at EU level. This analysis leads to the development of short-term recommendations around effective implementation of the EU Fintech Action Plan, coherence with the Digital Single Market, taking the international dimension into account, and investing in knowledge, access to new markets and communication. Longer-term recommendations are to replicate the innovative approach characterized by the second payments service directive in future legislation and to set up a Multi-Stakeholder Forum to stay abreast of trends and risks.

The European market accounts for 17% of the global fintech industry and the leaders are the US with 48%, while China is also holding strong with 35%. (source: bankingtech.com)

Founder and CEO of Somnium Space will have a keynote presentation about a bold and visionary concept at PICANTE TECH Conference Europe 2019.

 

Earlier this year, Somnium Space announced that they are super excited and busy building a bold vision of turning virtual into reality as we create an open, social Virtual Reality world.

The team is excited because ever since the beginning, their true vision is to create a world which will fulfill even the wildest dreams of everyone who decides to join (as well as their childhood dreams) and fully immerse its citizens into parallel reality.

In order to achieve their mission, there are several important parts of puzzle which have to be gradually implemented in order to create a true alternative reality world which come under the forms of:

  1. Stunningly looking, constantly changing persistent Virtual Reality environment (world) which can be explored by thousands of people at the same time.
  2. Ability to create, build and express yourself and, share and explore creations of others.
  3. Fully own and monetize your creations. Be a true and the only owner of your creations. Make money by selling your items in the open and independent marketplaces. Be a part of fully working economy.

All those steps mentioned above are crucial for a world which will exist for hundreds of years from now. The team at Somnium Space has already implemented Step 1 where people are currently enjoying themselves inside their persistent and beautiful VR World. The amazing team has already developed a fully functioning world full of events, gatherings and fun places to explore. People are enjoying live concerts, educational talks and sports competitions or simply sitting in the park and watching birds flying by…

This may sound like one of the recent movies that has shaken up the VR industry, but you need to experience it yourself to believe it.

The project doesn’t stop here as the two other steps need to be implemented and there are also some incredible ideas that involve the use of blockchain and a decentralized economy.

But, in order to hear more about this bold vision is being converted into reality, you need to attend Artur Sychov’s keynote presentation which will take place during PICANTE TECH Conference Europe (TCE2019).

A representative of cutting edge Czech company from Brno to present voice biometrics and speech analytics technologies at PICANTE TECH Conference Europe 2019.

 

Wondering what voice biometrics is? Well, we have a short answer to it. Voice biometrics works by digitizing a profile of a person’s speech to produce a stored model voice print or template.

The tones collectively identify the speaker’s unique voiceprint. Voice prints are stored in databases in a manner similar to the storing of fingerprints or other biometric data.

Speech analytics is the process of analyzing voice recordings or live customer calls to contact centers with speech recognition software to find useful information and provide quality assurance. Speech analytics software identifies words and analyzes audio patterns to detect emotions and stress in a speaker’s voice.

At PICANTE TECH Conference Europe (TCE2019), which will take place in Prague on the 3rd of September at Vienna House Andel’s Prague, Paul Morris, Business Development Manager at Phonexia, will explain more about how Phonexia’s technology works during a keynote presentation.

Paul will present how a brand new generation of Voice Biometrics technology from Phonexia allows users such as banking, insurance, and telco call and contact centers to be able to quicken and streamline customer interaction, improve overall the customer and employee experience, reduce unnecessary costs, heighten efficiency, increase security and detect fraud.
