We can thank artificial intelligence and authentication technology for the explosive growth of mobile payments, argues Kameliya Vladimirova, former Head of Mobile Payments Strategy at Visa. Both help to define what she calls “Mobile Payments 2.0,” the next generation of payments. In Mobile Payments 2.0, a smarter aggregation of user data across platforms, from speech-recognition devices to mobile and desktop, will create a more seamless experience for consumers.
