Contacts recognition for efficient communication with mobile devices

In a conference call with many attendees, when someone is talking, others may not know who is talking if they are not very familiar with each other yet. Or in another scenario that people A meets people B, B speaks out A's name, but A cannot exactly remember people B's name, it's a little embarrassing if B is an important guy. So there is needs to help people to recognize the speaker and give some hints to listener, and this can help to ensure efficient communication.

Our invention proposes an apparatus to help recognize the speaker and give hints to listener with mobile devices if they have ever talked before or listener has the speaker's contact information.

1) When user is speaking with the other person via mobile phone, the contact information and the receiving voice is merged, then new contact information

with voice meda data is created. This new contact information can be shared with other devices.

2) During call or talk, the input voice will be parsed and compare with the voice meta data to check if the speaker is known in contact list.
