Behavioral Software Decodes Human Voices to Identify Person’s Present State Over the Phone – Voice Driven Algorithms for Analysis
You know pretty soon you may not even “want” to talk with people on the phone as this software seems to be like they are almost coming through the phone to see your face. In healthcare, like with autism though this could really be helpful to get a little insight as that is an area of difficulty.

Anyone have any idea on laws here? We know that we can’t record conversations but can we analyze them without the other party knowing? I’m heading out to get myself one of those devices that changes my voice now <grin>. BD
