Developer, Alexa, Amazon discussed on The Voicebot Podcast
Night out and if that intention involves either information or tasks that are not all contained in a single skill then the question is how do you do that without creating this choppy experience yeah. I'd how do you orchestrate all those services. It's a very difficult problem and so and so I think Amazon's a long way from getting. Marriage I think it's really interesting. They SORTA pronounced it <hes> because they look into get into a preview period. I don't expect this thing to general availability for a long time. <hes> yeah certainly into next year before it would be G.. A. would be my guess and then it's only going to be a couple oh scenarios and then there's this tie between the two but I think really what they wanNA. DO IS THEY WANNA start seeding new development into the model the imperative model because it's less work on developers alpers it is hopefully will deliver more intuitive interaction so that not every developer needs to be a sophisticated to develop a good experience because Amazon and the Alexa Platform can actually smooth over some of those parts based on what it knows <hes> and so those were important and then eventually with his crosskill goal fulfillment. They'll all be prepped for it because if the if you've developed something in the existing model the old declared of model. It's probably not gonNA be discoverable for some of these cross skill capabilities so so I think it's really fascinating. I love what's going on. There and I have no doubt there will be implications for design in fact. I think there's going to be more thought about design when this comes up because if you're doing imperative model you have to think a little bit more about what the platform might do for you <hes> and you can think about the things you definitely want to be specific and you can really hone in on those without having to deal with all of the ancillary things things that you might normally have to think about which really just more table stakes that they even just now let the I elected in this case. Take Care for you right and and how do you <hes> you know in the future scale these conversations to to last more than motor two returns. It's very difficult to go beyond that as a developer now okay so Alexa conversations for those of your engine that we did a re Mars episode just a couple ago. I think it was one. Oh One maybe <hes> and I recommend you check that out. We've got a bunch of people talking about it but is amy said. There's a lot more discussion to be had about that going forward okay so let's move on to <hes> sort of what I would call the technologists block. I've got a couple of them here. <hes> the first I is episode eighty six Fiji Balasubramaniam from pin-drop and Dave you hit list of this is one of your top three. Tell me why so along with <hes> <hes> kind of along the same vein as mere Hirsch. I look at what V._J.. Bala- Superman Ian in pin-drop are doing as another really big idea. I think it's going to be one of the core technologies to all of the voice technology that's coming in in his whole approach is around security and just listening to that discussion was absolutely fascinating. You know the fact that they started in fraud detection and then now they're moving this into basically voice biometric gene and so being able to use all of the different <hes> indicators in your voice to identify you. I think the implications there are pretty profound for the Internet of things <hes> I think.
