Zoosch Technology when compared to NFC is a little ahead. The time required to wait for the NFC chips to respond is absent in Zoosch. All the NFC stickers and other gadgets for mobile payments can be evaded with this technology! I did not know about Apple and Google using Zoosch, thanks for letting me know.
By limiting the transmission range and ensuring strong encryption (preferably upto 1024 bits);we reduce the chances of someone breaking and modifying the system for their own nefarious needs.
Again this is'nt foolproof (if you could develop handheld readers/scanners) which can intercept and encode the Signal you could still positively break things down.My only hope in having a 1024 bit(and higher) encryption is that it will take too long.In the meantime the transaction would have been successfully completed.
@prabhakar_deosthali to an extend you may seem right. Hardly can any new innovation be invented without a flaw. Commonest flaw or defect in information and communication technology remains very diffcult to tackle - security.
Neverthlesss, speech recognition gadget may be at least 75% tamper proof if not 100%, mind you, no perfect system - be it anything. Human being has not attained the level of perfection.
You helped answer the question of the similarity of the ultrasound decoding and the way the miltary had decoded other forms of wave encrypted messages in the past. The question is, how secure is Zoosh? I did not find much on the question at Narattes website.
That's quite correct. Though the system seems really innovative, I think there will be shortcomings in it when it comes to security. Especially with financial transactions involved, the security aspect might be even critical. One of the concerns I can come up with at the moment is how difficult it would be to reproduce a signal from a fake source to make the cellphone respond back?

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
