How Voice Tech Podcast's Carl Robinson Got Started In Voice
"So Carl. Comey how you got started invoice? What was your first experience? The voice device in? How did he interested in voice technology? So. I found voice few years ago while I was doing my data science master's degree in. Paris France has a two year cost studying machine learning and saw looking around at different fields that interested me decide. I would work in after the after I graduated house okay. And traction studying robotics, the Voice of course, and also different fields that involve the human in someway I call it the interaction element of things I ended up doing an internship. At a laboratory could come on voice emotion transformation as it basically means I was creating machine learning model that would accept recording of human speech and then transform its characteristics so that it would output a new file of the person speaking with the emotion in the voice changed in some way. So it would sound more angry or happier or whatever you would like. This is fantastic. First introduction for me into the world of voice allowed me to me a lot of people who specialised in voice technology and really started a spot, my nation, and this was exactly around the time when you know I'm an Alexa and be smart speakers really taking off as well. So I could see that was a real opportunity in the industry to to work in that field as well, and so this is this is what really got me into voice surfaced of all. I think the first voice interface I us apart from the. Toys R., US a child and we can all think back to the eighty s when there was some kind of voice interfaces But. In recent times I think that the the most the first voice choice I used was on my mobile phone. Many people had an android phone. So I started issuing a few voice set his and commands to it was paying more attention to the space immediately went out and ordered an Amazon Echo. DOT started playing with that set up my smart home a couple of light switches asking questions hooked it up to Jesus, so I could ask her music tracks and things like that and it grew from that. Started using my phone in the car as people do I start buying the Google devices. So how? A range of different ecosystems in the house now but that was my first experience basically. So those experiences on my phone and on the the smart because really convince me of the potential voice in has been a fan of the idea of Ambien computing that the star Trek Vision. Well, you just walk into a room and asked what we want and none of this late word business. You just have thought ask for it and keep and computer response and I see this is a big step towards that vision as not the full it's not the full vision. Of course, there's going to be other modalities introduced, but really sparked my. Imagination and it really made me made me think that this is the technology that has the most potential to advance the quickest in the coming years thinking about my career and what I wanted to work on I was thinking strongly about the by Thornton VR. Still has a long way to go before it really takes off in the mainstream but this voice thing this really looks like it's got a lot of attention on the short term and I think it was right in in that prediction as well because looking the proliferation of smart because. So many searches conducted over voice today. It's definitely it's definitely a trend that's going to stick. The voice tech podcast is a must listen. So listeners go listen to it. You have over seventy episodes right now carl and I enjoyed being a guest in episode sixty one. Please tell listeners more about your podcast. Thanks Roger, I really appreciate that. Yeah, like signed. Before as you mentioned, we've done over seventy episodes. Now I can mention a few that really stick in my mind deals with a personal favor. Actually I the thing I liked to buy our conversations that it was very well-structured. You've really got into the the details of the the bixby system as well. I left that conversation failing some impressed. So in in. The the way that you guys have done over there, but we've had lots of conversations like that on there that was podcast to me. Personally, it's been a wonderful experience for personal branding reasons expanded my network hugely by doing. So I've spoken to lots of people that I would've never had the opportunity to just be to otherwise. So it's been, it's been a wonderful experience,

"Many ways for marketing Google ads on facebook ads creating my own websites enduring some search engine optimization. But what really helped try awards like facebook community. And building a website and having a newsletter way, you can keep in touch with your user base. Also, but really helps is just to have a good voice ebb that really works without any era. So it's useful for people keep coming back to use it. The mouth marketing is really important as we all struggling discover ability s bixby has its own store and Amazon has its own Amazon Alexa Stork. It's really hard for new skills new capsules for for new voice develop us to get attention to get discovered by by new. US. So. What what really helps? Maybe also have an email address or or help desk support where you can address issues that people might up when you're using your skill and just be there for them. Help them give them support happy customers hippie users would always come back. And this may be like the most important part of the most important part. I guess for me in marketing was to. Have a happy customer and make them happy tried to solve the problems when when the are any and. This would. Keep coming back. Bill. The quality experience. Is, key, and then tell me more about facebook groups. Do you have other facebook groups for some of your voice experiences or? Yes exactly. Stream Afra- stream plan I do have voice facebook group, and this is how to keep in touch to push out messages if there are any new channels or if they're like an outage of the service, this is. Really had to always to also get feedback from the users. Get feedback and listen to it. So you're just down the advice I hear from when I talked to Sarah and Wilson and recently Nick Bob Two super successful people invoice in there like you gotta listen to your users and I think this is not a technologist I king. They think when they get out the door they're done you've just started. Now, accepting it out the door start listening refining and really over and over again. The people who are successful in and indeed anyth- any. Software are the ones who know the journey starts with release one. And it's a never ending journey to keep on listening to users and getting feedback and building at an ad. I totally. Seattle Sarah. May this great comment even if you get the worst negative feedback, they're giving it to you because they care because they really don't care. They wouldn't even bother give me feedback. So correct me anybody gives you feedback has valuable input and so listen to them and try to build it. Yeah IT'S A. Great Way to think about I think people need. It's the beginning is the first rolling. Not. The. But it's really hard to get into the head of the potential client like a brand or third party that you have to stick with a plan. You have when you are released the when you're release the voice experience, you have to listen to the customer you have to build upon it and it's not done yet like you said. It's just like they won or when you're studying just they've beginning of the journey. It's interesting when you talk about an, I was talking about individual developers. About. So with companies right and I think that differences right now if I'm a new company. I CAN PRETTY EASILY CREATE A website, a mobile APP there. I'll say pretty decent because the tooling. So sophisticated they are. There's a lot known about what people like to do. Voices so NASA new are the biggest companies in the world building voice experiences. Nobody really knows how customers want to interact with you as a company, and so the nature building voice right now is go building. Go try it. You're mostly GONNA. Get it wrong. and Go build again, this interest hospice, but that's really different. Than where we are with other mediums right now are you finding you're finding challenging with clients to say the beginning is the first release and you're GONNA have to integrate over and over and over again to get this don't work really well. s exactly the that's the problem you have to make sure that they understand that this is just the start we skills or voice experiences based on the MVP. It's the minimum viable project product and restored with a minimum set that is required and its rate on that and to to expand the voice experience, and this really helps to push out first version rather easily and quickly but. Again. It's just start and you have to listen to the US. You have to listen to the customers that are using scare and build upon the. Amended that. Daniel let's talk bixby. You've published several bixby capsules including stream player mosquito stop once upon a time in history. Tell me how you got started bixby and what the experience has been like. I heard about bixby used before I got started working on it because I already owned or something on the like rush I version of fixed installed. and. But it wasn't easy to build for the first expe- thought it really changed when the the second version of XP got released and in I guess it was March or April two, thousand nineteen. I got a message from the be my team and they were asking me if I wanted to be a part of the speed program, and if I was interested in building for bixby and of course, I lost it was the great opportunity. To Dick into a new voice assistant, and so a few days later, I had a call with a Sarah Pack and Jeff and David David Gino APP and talks a foreign our about bixby and what they were thinking about how big would be changing the market, how it would be developing a for it and I wanted to to have expand bixby. It was just a pleasure talking to them and. They were so friendly and helpful, and so I got him bought critically and when I saw and I use bixby and saw the development platform, the bixby studio it was a really great experience. It was very different from the. Emerson system and how to build for for Alexa but it was a great experience to see how different. For can be And so the first capsule bird was a mosquito stop and saw how easy that or how easy is it was. So just like pets relaxed and once upon a time off the street capsules within two three weeks, and because the the documentation was sub-grade and capsules were so great. It was just so super easy and Super Fund to Bixby. This is how I started rooting expe-. Great. Lots of music to my ears that I will. Of the team are nice they were and it's great to just say that I absolutely accurate Haitian the knack because we work really hard nat we continue to try to improve in that. So speaking about Bixby, it's primarily on phones. Today, you can start building some simple things are watches. And it's coming the TV's and sparred appliances this year what are these new devices are must excited about? Three. Honest. The Watch, the TV than. I think the watching the t the phones watches devices that you carry with you. Around that you have around and with you all the time this very different than the TV or the smart appliances like Fritsch, and because they are stationed at home while you're on the go and you often want to use location based services and it's.

"To switch gears a little bit, and I, want to talk about the actual building voice experiences. You've found a lot of success building them Daniel, can you tell me though how does it start? What's the creative process when you're thinking about I'm going to build something new But how's that work? Yeah. So I has to be like an idea what do you want to build I do like to look at what problems are are there to solve its voice like the right technology for it, and because if there are other ways to solve a problem that is faster than boys I, don't like to use voice as solution to the problem. So it has to make sense to use voice for the problem and then I when I do have an idea like. To sketch it out on paper, I do like paper because you have something in your hands you. Can Rewrite it and it just makes more sense to stop. They are about when it get further into the idea I put all of this in like a powerpoint presentation. The voice user interface and get a feeling how the assistant. So when I have the voice interface, I'm going to write down the hippy off and also. It helps to do a little role playing where one person like face user and the other person talks like a voice assistant because writing down is always different than hearing it talking like it there's always difference between it. So. This is. When I started with an idea. The first steps? Interesting, I haven't thought about using powerpoint. As a tool, but you've used that as a tool to early prototype and think about the flow I love hearing what tools were two industry Nassan. And the nettles are so simple. I love hearing about what new tools what existing tools people have repurpose. And thinking about the design and things powerpoint that's interesting in such a tool to so many of us know sometimes too well. Yeah, but that's great and then yeah, you gotta you gotTa Test I love the idea of some of the voice assistant someone's user you gotta tested vote verbally the way we communicate verbally and retinas so very different and. Not. We clearly learned how to speak and dialogue, but we don't right when you're in school when you do your writing, right you're not. You're not writing screenplays writing the dialogue. About it and so it's actually a big challenge. It's a different kind of cognitive process going through to think about speaking rather than writing something that someone will will read so. Good stuff there and and what I also like to do at this role play in cop because when you're driving, you're already been focused on the traffic and your car and driving itself and. We are still able to think about and use the words. The author insists and have a feeling about how the skill voice APP or capsule might fee like looked like or listen really helps a lot in doing this in the car. Super Interesting I love that. So try the car out and and use it there and see if it works. You were talking about testing in the car. I was thinking back to some of the musicians recording studios they actually have a car. Connected because the musicians WanNa, go listen in the car to see how it sounds in the car because the car is completely different environment right now in place to do that cognitively different, you're more distracted than the car and I also think that there's such a huge promise for voice assistant us. In. The car and the auto guess ovation based services. Yeah. Yes exactly doing interesting things they era just we spent something maybe a little less in these times of COVID bill go back to spending way too much time behind the wheel. In voices, systems are way to provide some entertainment there. Now when you go to actually develop it Daniel, there's that standard tools Amazon's asked bixby developer studio, Google dialogue flow, or extra forgetting the name of the Google tool. But the Migraine that way do you use these standard tools? Are there any other development tools, e US tell me about you Kinda tool set for development us. Yeah, I'm using those tools correctly locally. Whistle Studio coach to write the code and for Bixby of course, if the bixby develop a studio. But for the four first prototyping catching out, I often use voice flow. But. As a technical person, I need full control of the code and the set up so I don't like using boys flow for life life. Voice. I'm really looking forward to the day when they have like voyage code export just be like a game change on but other than that I'm using sketch or adobe. Photoshop for creating visual components that might be needed for like supporting display devices. Now that is what I'm using. It's interesting. I like using voice flow for prototyping too but I've never released anything on it because I always want the control. Funny at Sea mentioned I've had some conversations brayden about that exact topic and they just introduced I think it's a Beta. For their COQ enterprise users code. Expert. Oh, really voice flow. So I think they're thinking along the same lines of, hey we have all these kinds of sophisticated user using this as a prototyping tool. Maybe we can use this as kind of a kickstart coding tool. The add on tips I'm excited to see where that goes but. That tooling I think it's great for prototyping and it clearly people build some pretty cool stuff and had some success just using it. So what about for developers Danube invoice for a while now who are just starting out with voice and they're trying to figure out what to build or how to build it what advice would you have for them? Okay, I would give them the advice to just start. There are so many like theriault videos out there. Just, give it a try using the from Amazon from speech from Google an ever look at the video theriault it's like. John do creating on or after publishing on Youtube. Just, think about an idea, you might have give it a try. Maybe use boys flow to sketch out the idea. To, build the first prototype and see if it's working tested. And Yeah that that would be my advice just try it out. It's easier than than you might think especially when you're using voice flow at the beginning. And don't be afraid to ask in the community if you have questions and. So maybe the voice industry should steal the Nike logo just do it. Because I've heard that advice before I agree with it just go jump in and build something. Regular. See how it works and understand it and it's fun and interesting, and maybe we can build something cool and I would say whatever you build you have at least one passionate user base, Fan Yourself. A lot of fun. It's fun. That's great technologist we love to build. So go do it. Hate one of the things that. You've definitely had some success in the voice industry. So I'm really curious about. Your thinking around discover -bility, the challenges there and what you've done overcome that made me Oscar questions out. If you're doing. What you're thinking thoughts around getting your voice experience discovered. I tried many ways for marketing Google ads on facebook ads creating my own websites enduring some search engine optimization. But what really helped.
Education and Voice with Daniel Mittendorf
"I would also love to talk to you about you co-founded Luba and my little by. Dot, and that's a startup for educational voice experiences which gets excited just talking about it. So tell me more about Lavar. Live by first shortfall lauren voice in battle. Re Edit the second Ohio because us like a antibioticum in eastern Europe that is called Bar with one single. Oh so we went ahead and just edit the second. Oh This is like real focused on educational voice APPS and. Experiences for kids as. I have two kids on my own and my two co founders also have kids. And in early twenty twenty, there was an attack challenge by Amazon so we teamed up. With altria three of us and we came up with the idea for live Bouba and live about an educational voice experience where kids can compete against classmates from school when the are at home. So we came up with this idea even before corona hit. But the even better idea. Now, a kitsap sitting at home was closed and lockdown happening. So teachers can use our system at questions and quizzes for classes. Am The wild sitting at home can use our skill s or ski lists like the first ever. Life Moody Play Skill where you can play against your classmates Alexa Alexa device. To stay in the lobby and wait for the players to join, and then you can challenge your classmates, only your classmates and so you know who are playing against and then you get five questions that are. Teach out. Enters into our system and you win the round when you're answering the most questions correctly the shortest amount of time. I. Love that. That sounds like a lot of fun. So you get a little bit alerting. Competition in their and game game of buying it, which always makes it more fun education. I think we many of us believe and I have two kids. Myself is a place where it definitely needs to be reinvested and I love when I hear about technology reinventing education and I think voice has such a powerful of log conversation many conversations with Julie Daniel Davis about this. Voice in education and the opportunities there Nadan just I love it because not only. Is Re using tack to reinvent education but voices the different medium. There are kids who maybe they struggle with reading. But Craig are really good or label what they hear things they understand and so I love the idea yes you get the lecture from the teacher but using voices systems, the way of augment that type of learning even if you don't struggle with it, it's a different type of learning when you hear it and speak than when you read and so it Augmentin. Completes the education and outside of the classroom. Now, if I can use voices away to learn, it's a great unlock for education. So great job. Thanks.
Voice and Podcasts with the Dynamic Duo: Kane Simms and Dustin Coates
"So background if you go back far enough used to. Say I to produce music. But the reality is I was a kid in my bedroom, filling around samples and make some Junes and writing lyrics. So they used think the funds myself as a bit of a wrapper. and. If you look back at some podcast episodes. Complete row. I think a little bit rusty other minute. Did do one for Frank Schneider of speakeasy. and. So He's Best I'LL PHILADELPHIA. So when we introduced him on the podcast did version of the fresh prince of bel-air theme tune with Franck Schneider. So they going to know So of caught a long relationship with audio and woods essentially audio together and important words into it ended up realizing the making music it is not easy to make money from. And etc. Went throughout my career ended up in marketing agencies ended up in user experience design. Consultancy Service designed eventually managing digital service transmission teams and then out freelance writing on the side as also had kept up the right and stuff, and then all of a sudden not come across. I think it was an adver around the launch of Alexa in the UK. Fiddle around with Siri, but it was reuben time in submitting bothered with it. But I see in this advert for Alexa launched in the UK and I was thinking lot seems crazy that I didn't know anything about I. Didn't know you could build for. I. Didn't know that you create anything for it. I didn't have a clue about and just thought when I see now thought wouldn't it be good if you could create something for much and if you could actually design like an old your based conversation, best experience that people could have with this thing and immediately I thought that sounds fantastic and Few monthly God device etc Pierre Around it and I thought to myself I. Think. It'd be good to try and learn really well how these things were technology is what hangs together how the build Sephora and then similar justin really start thinking about how we do that and I thought one of the best ways to learn about an audio I medium will be to create an audio I kind of piece of content, and if I'm going to learn about then a ms well share that with everyone else who might want to learn about it and so that was how the world was the podcast was born. The demand demand name in two thousand, seventeen couldn't find anybody to interview for any kind of cost couldn't come across anyone all just maybe I wasn't right using the the pro search phrases because I didn't i. Didn't quite come across y'all content that's I'm and then eventually in November of twenty seventeen. I realize that the voice book podcasters around and this week in voice podcast was around those thinking what the Hell's going on like I had this idea months ago. What's in a thought? Well, lots of evidence basically the the something that there must be something that most people are confined to speak to that was in the US, convinced that it was going to come to Europe and so that's what was not doing not like research in China in touch with trying to meet people's to flat out recorded a couple of the episodes over Christmas. The first episode might even still be on Youtube. It said, I've got my garland hanging on the the fireplace damning. And then was just about to launch I. Think Miami might have even put one episode out on immediately someone commented on twitter and said, Hey, you know that was really good. But what would be really interesting would be if there was some kind of person around the hard technical knowledge someone that could cause for me I'm astrologist in the design and always been the design of always gaping on the condor like the creative end, the Kinda strategic, figuring out what it is, we should be doing and then managing the team that kind of goes ahead and does it all during the design myself and stuff and then I. It was the on Conan I. Think he said, are you going to get into any technical content? Is that I love to I don't really have the technical background myself. Exactly. That's right. That's exactly that was young. Yeah, and then you've sent a tweet us in. You responded I think it was it was a tweet or you direct message right now I think it was on I think it was a tweet i. Very very rarely on twitter. So if you look at our different social media's canes, the Social Media Social Butterfly me, I can take it or leave it but I just happened to be there is a one day voice conference at Paris a day just happened to be on twitter following along and I saw that and I think I replied I was like Hey let's try I. do it yeah. I don't think literally within the space of. Our can probably seven days later, we recorded an episode episode four or five or something. And that was the beginning we did. We've done ever since and we've kind of as I said, the first six months foucault was doing the podcast and then we got speaking engagements and hosting conferences and events to flat now, and then twenty nineteen start getting involved in workshops training consultancy. We picked up Kanda design development projects, and still like out and then yeah, it's been more of the same of US insights Crazy. So Sir Tippety. Dustin winter. saw. Replied in a super successful podcasting percocet came out of that. People don't realize it took US two years I think two years right canes actually meet in person it wasn't until two last summer I happen to the giving a talk in London and came down. So there's the you X. Trivia for you. To Gain Dustin podcast together to. Not, each. Other. Exactly. Not just poke. We've been working together. You know it's like it's crazy how you know how I don't think we understand people don't really I. Think we take for granted the Internet basically is trying to say you don't realize the power that the house you know imagine being able to create a company with someone who you've never actually met in. Real life and work together, and you know build up that kind of relationship over two years without even an oxygen meeting is i. think is absolutely unbelievable. Crazy. It is amazing. You might think of this time of turn cove. It is all of a sudden working remotely I think more and more that's going to happen right where people are getting super comfortable. Where come outlay you were working with someone in completely different areas will be different times on different countries. All works. Great. So I see that little bit we kind of accelerated the future of work. Unfortunate events that that happened to us.

"Glad to see that. APP As had the success that Tad. And also things like a big Sky Stephen Economy which is built that for Alexa. I think he has it on Bixby as well. This guy is a philosophy professor ethics professor and he's building these voice apps on the side, not only as building voices on the side, but he's really going up against like native functionality in some of these platforms right and he's going up against the weather channel these huge companies, and he's doing a remarkably good job at it because he's giving customers. A, little bit of extra detail that they can't really get through other means in his doing it in a way where he's put a lot of thought into the experience more. So than I think these major companies like the weather channel do. So, spun on. Stephen was Augusta few episodes ago and we talked about it will you must be a weather geic and he's no, I'm not. I just didn't like the way built in weather experience worked. It was clumsy in. So I could build a better mousetrap and so steven built for himself much like asleep sounds and Nana's found a lot of success joined that and yeah, some great examples I love your examples of Song Quiz. I lose to my teenage daughters I play that I can cheap choosing the decade that I now know that, right? Yeah. Exactly. So. Hey Nick. If people WANNA keep in touch with yourself or sleep jar. What's the best way to do so? Yeah, you can figure out or learn more about sleep jar. Asleep. Jarred. Dot Com has links to pretty much all the APPS that we have out there.

"I'm much more multiple specific and a much tighter group of questions than the topic questions that anybody at home would that that's must be correct and so it's much easier to try to an I. Model to handle those and provide a high level of accuracy and intent resolution, and therefore delight the customer. Another example with these voice comments be commerce solutions out that. So that was one that was acquired by coke would voice. In, pull a product catalog from a website and then website. This is when they office to see certain products from that website. They get such results which are very accurate. So again, they delight the customers is the result is exactly what the customer is looking for. So I, think when you identify a real need and it seems to be possible to solve that problem using a voice system then really try and tighten up the use case around that, and then you've got the best chance of success. Let's definitely sage advice. What advice would you give those? Who are considering a career in voice? Where do you think the big opportunities in voice our? While the voice industry is still relatively new with God to other technologies. It things are in flux thing the moving very quickly all the platforms competing and releasing new features all the time. So no one's really sure who the winner is going to be a where we're going to be in a few years time say Bella in mind one of the BRAS I see popping up more is the role of conversation designer. This is a cross platform role. So if you acquire skills in compensation design, it complied to any platform whether it's Google something or or whatever. So I, I would say that's a safer bet in that. If you invest in time your time in developing skills in that area, they will be valid longtime from a learning point of view there's plenty of courses on compensation design as well. This one as I was mentioning before by rubber copy get voice asked come slash rubber copy. Now. There's actually a discount on there as well, but there are many more. There's one career foundry there's another one that escapes me, but there's a lot going on in their conversation designed space and a a great support group as well. On the developer side, it depends how you want to do it. So a allergy that. People talk about Jovo because it's cross platform. So again, you'll kind of hedging a bats in your learning one system that can deploy two multiple different big tech platforms, or you can just dive headfirst into one of the platforms and become a specialist in that area, which may be more appropriate or looking to what with an agency he's looking for a specialist to develop for that platform. So for example, Bixby is the new kid on the block I was really really impressed by the guys that they'll actually the last project voice back in January. So by now, I can only imagine. All the the advancements you guys have implemented. So, perhaps, that is a is another strategy for developers. So you've had your bets with with something like Jovo or just dive into something like bixby get in early you can be one of the first developers to actually develop deep skills there, and then you can command higher rates of course, because they'll be less competition and along with that I would say, don't underestimate the importance of crap personal brand. So let's say you do become one of the foremost bixby developers on the scene then don't just keep it to yourself actually do some marketing. For yourself cry website and the thing that's what best for me is actually crying podcast actually talk about your experience interview, the customers you're working with speed to thought leaders, elevate your yourself post on link ten and become a face recognized because when people think we need a big developer, who do we go to of course, your name is going to be the first person on their minds and instead of running a search is going to give you a coast I. I would take the aspect of the business quite seriously as well whether you're an individual aura, you'll sign a company. Let's talk a little bit about bixby the bixby marketplace's coming the TV's watches and smart appliances. That is refrigerators this year. One of these new devices are excited about how do you think of? Voice Experience. Different. On these new devices. While I'm really excited to see what you guys do with backstage because you know as I think he said before five hundred million devices that something sell every year, which is just a phenomenal number. Correct me if I'm wrong lab that really presents a unique opportunity for developing a a very tightly tightly integrated ecosystem. I. Think Integration is one of the things that is currently missing the most from the existing platforms I have to buy. Smart Speaker. For for every room, but still have to be near that small speaker for it. The hammy the handoff between the because it's still quite poor in my opinion. For example, we know my Google home. I can't seem to transfer podcast playing in the bathroom into the bedroom without having to stop it and then re requesting unconscious type play that in the bedroom maybe you guys have got working I can't seem to get it to wet for the life. Of Me. So I think tight integration across the bixby range of products would be fantastic. You can imagine if it's built into my fridge then I don't need to buy smart speaker for the for the kitchen do is because I'm I can just tell straightly to straight to the fridge same for a watch I think mobile is one of the biggest missing pieces for this. You know we've got the the hairballs and things that have come out. Now, not wearing if day whereas award is something, you can keep on your wrist all the time and so that contacts can be preserved and especially if it's very tightly integrate says the basically system seems to be that you can have that continuity of experience which I think is really important for voice at takes us again one step closer to that vision of Ambien competing with Charles earlier, and we can't forget about TV's of course, smart TV's that. Something is going to be incorporated in I think TV's are probably one of the most influential of all of the devices because they all the information hub for most homes they are, of course, inherently multi-modal device and I know that you guys a bixby of bill with multi-modal by default. So every every APP that you guys build in Bixby is comes with a screen by the which, of course, you can customize depending on the device and I think that. Poses a number of interesting. For bringing the screen into the home where for other devices, it might make sense to just have a voice only aura voice fast with a TV. It really is visuals I and acting as a hub, an information hub for that control these other devices I think it's the presents a lot of interesting.

"How did you get interested in voice technology? So I found voice a few years ago while I was doing my data science master's degree in Paris in France has a two year course studying machine learning and I was looking around at different fields that interested me decide what what I would work in after after I graduated I was okay. Human computer interaction studying robotics, the voice, of course, and also different fields that involve the human in someway I call it that the human interaction element of things I ended up doing an internship. At a laboratory called air come on voice emotion transformation. As that basically means I was creating machine learning model that would accept recording human speech and then would transform its characteristics that it would output a new file of the person speaking with the emotion in the voice changed in some way so it would sound more angry or happier or whatever you would like. This is a fantastic first introduction for me into the world of voice. Allow me to me a lot of people who are specialists in voice technology and really started a spot, my generation, and this is exactly around the time when. Alexa and be smart speakers are really taking off as well. So I could see that was a real opportunity in the industry to to work at in that field as well. So this is a this is what really got me into voice festival. I think the first voice interface I us apart from the you know the toys I used as a child, and we can all think back to the eighty s when there was some kind of voice interfaces available. But in recent times I, think that the the most the first voice I, was on my mobile phone like many people had an android phone. So I started issuing a few voice searches and commands to it. I was paying more attention to the space immediately went. Out and Amazon Echo dot started playing with that you know set my smart home, a couple of light switches STOSKOPF questions hoped it up to Jesus. So I could ask her after music tracks and things like that and it grew from that. So then I started using my phone in the car as people do I'd start buying the Google devices. So I have a, you know a range of different ecosystems in the house now, but that's that was my first experience basically. So those experiences on my phone and on the smart speakers really convince me of the potential of voice of been a fan of the the idea of ambient computing star Trek Vision. Well, when you just walk into a room and asked what we want and none of this weight word business, you just have a thought ask for it and the computer responds and I could see why this is a big step towards that vision.

Of course, there's going to be other modalities introduced, but really sparked my imagination and it really made me made me think that this is the technology that has the most potential to advance the quickest in the coming years thinking about my career and what I wanted to work on I was thinking strongly about the by thumb VR still has a long way to go before it. Really. Takes off in the mainstream, but this voice thing this really looks like it's got a lot of attention on the short term. I think it was right in in that prediction as well because looking at the proliferation of smart speakers and the so many searches are conducted over voiced today.

Big Sky with Dr. Steven Arkonovich
"I'm Steven, Arcana Bitch and I think most people know me as the developer of the big sky weather skill. But I have lots of other skills that nobody cares about, but that's fine I know resentment just. Out there how heels avid, altogether, it'd be idea. I have like six seven eight. I took some off like some of the really early ones because they just couldn't handle them, they were so. Atrocious okay, took them away from the market, but there's still a bunch of them out there all right we'll get. We'll get to that. What's your story so? I'm really I'm a philosophy professor. At Reed College in Portland Oregon and I do Alexa skill development on the side. So I'm of the, Alexa. Champions Program. I am are the bixby premier developers program, so you can get big sky on Bixby as well. That's the that's. That's what I do. So you know what questions coming next. How does a philosophy professor? Get into Amazon Alexa envoys technology. Right, then is the president well. I think it was A. Combination of a sabbatical where I really was trying to put off doing the research project I was supposed to do. together with a injury to my Achilles tendon that had me like boot and sitting in a chair for a long time. So those two things together made me like cast around or. Something else to do what I should be doing. and. I got an Alexa device early on, and I thought it was super cool. And I just started wanting to around with it and have a do things that it wasn't capable of doing at the time like play music through my stereo or even turn on and off the lights. It wasn't I don't think it was capable of doing that at the time so with IQ lights, so that's got into it. So what was your first device? Then because it's a this is a while ago, then was it like the big? The big tall cylinder. All, black cylinder. Gotcha Gotcha so. As, a philosophy, professor and skill developer. Those are somewhat somewhat different skill sets. Have you coded before? How did you get into that? Or what's the story there? Yeah, no I didn't I hadn't coded before. There are a little bit more similar than people think. They are just because the kind of law, Sophy I. DO is a little bit more technical. So you know it involves some formal logic, and so you know working in a formal logic and working in programming languages. You know they're not worlds apart. So that was helpful. and. No, I just got started because I've told the story before there was I wanted integration to my music server software I want to be able to tell Alexa play. A certain album was earned song that I had. I don't exactly remember. How would I got hooked up with? A an actual developer was doing some early Alexa stuff. And he's and he wrote some like really basic code to do that. Which I actually paid him for, but then I looked, and I looked at that code and thought well. That's cool, but I'm not paying you. You know that again to fix the. I'm sure I can figure out how to modify this, and that's just how it started like once I win started down that rabbit hole. I just couldn't stop

"So spot on us in the audience near customers. Right exactly any Snow Roger Hundred, what a one there! We love you talking about marketing always say having started my own startup and having not work out what I feel to do is is pay enough attention the marketing side, right? You can build a business happens so often technology. Integration a Pie, castor, you can have amazing things, but nobody listens because they don't know about it. It's not gonNA. Work is your product because they are gonNA succeed I think startups should go about marketing day one. Exactly exactly. What your soul Vang and think about how you're bringing it to the world. Otherwise, it's a waste of time absolutely. Jump in talk about Bixby for a little bit your early adopter. Hot for. For many months. How's that going? So big! He was a really interesting experience audio. I was one of the early wants to actually publish voice application on the Alexa. A newsfeed skill on Alexa is an audio scale also back then you're able to get those names and we had google solution. We have still have a google action on Google and then came the opportunity to work with bixby and It was tough. It was tough to to kind of go and talk to my team and say let's do let's Vicky because experiences. Experiences with Alexa they were good, but again on on the marketing perspective. Right to okay its. How many people are actually listening? What's the? What's the taxes that we get? So I think that was a challenge at the beginning, but actually working with the team is what convinced us old that there might be a bigger opportunity here from a developer perspective I have to say we felt like we have the people to reach out to. That can help us build what we WANNA build and it was. In its very beginning. and W got VIP kind of a service from from the team and it. It was so good, said that audio audience was very different from the other application on Bixby with the audio player in all those, although stuff that were that were needed, and we felt like we really had an open door to you. It's to the developers to Adam to explain. What is it that we need what we think? We kind of head of influence. Also the way speed was kind of growing in in the audio space that allowed us experiments at our own side, and we got a lot of exposure coming from from the team I. think that from from An. An experience of building on big speed and kind of the creating what we wanted to create the end result, so the platelet we have. Our big capsule is combined of playlists on topical playlets, eventually also -bility to create a personalized plan of spoken-word audio works. Great really works raid I think that there were the we've improved those along with images and the audio, and how plays at everything, and we feel very lucky to be one of the one of the services there and again I. Guess it's now a matter of time to see how Samson audience is leveraging the capsules leveraging expe- and going back to the marketing issue. We hope right that Samsung. Marketing Resources and capabilities and ability to promote that further on, and I, guess that's what we're looking on as the next stage. Nice to hear her happy to have you join early and help really contribute to this platform right and being one of the first users of audio player. I think you were right. YELP shapes the game's and some thinking that still going into okay. What are the Hansen so? We need to do so. The. Big Question so on all Samsung smartphones today. But we're watching. The marketplace for TV's wanted smart appliances fridges. What are those official devices are excited about? How do you think voice experience or a a saint audio burst? Experience can be different than one of those devices are and handsome, one of those devices. So I think the watching is very interesting again. We talked about it like a wet. When do you've listen to audio? When your screen? So when you're outside, you're jogging. You're doing your exercise and so I think if you. If you have the watch, you don't have to have the phone with us of. That's pretty cool. That's a nice experience that I think we can provide and protecting it into a other aspect. Even the fridge is interesting. I had the chance to see some of the Hamson. Purchase with the with the big. Hub experienced would be nice again. Personalized experience or you consume content that is relevant for you, so if you one have a recipe or something like that, anyone, learn more about the strawberries like that, and then have gathered information of Weiss robberies is matter of maybe there's a podcast since for strawberries and whites better than banana, and kind of getting that content I think that. Once again. Content is the king just like when we had it, but the at the early two thousands it's not a or even before that it's not enough to have the website the www right. It's the world. Wide Web is not enough. It needs to have content and I think this is where audio versus changing the game I think this is also one of the things that other solutions today are lacking. So why would I use Alexa right? What's contemplated is providing me and I think that all of those devices. This is something that could just make the engagement with the product better denno about. About the washing machine or something like that, but again it's just the ability to have about content everywhere and anywhere where you're going home, maybe even without your earphones right because it identifies that right now you're standing in front of your washing room, and it plays whatever you were just listening to, and then the next time you're at the you're at the kitchen in the fridge will play or whatever so there's there's a lot of opportunities there. Definitely fallen is one of the things that we see as the most interesting that connected world when it comes to audio's is very relevant for audio i. It's interesting because to my mind, audio content in the watch seems like a no brainer to me. I'm going for job I'm going for a walk. The which I do a lot.
Reinventing Podcasts with Rachel Batish of Audioburst
"I like to say that podcasting is both old and new in new, because it's so hot right now. But I, just looked it up a few days ago in the first podcasts, two thousand four, so. Yeah, so it's been around for sixteen years as A. Jay and I think that anyone has created a podcast. You're dived under the hood and seen the tech works podcasting, realize Anna quickey in old. Some of those make it run. They give a really fresh take on the PODCAST. Listening experience can come urban more about our is different to listen to. Audio bursts versus your traditional podcast player. Yeah so I don't see ourselves as a competing with traditional podcast player, but actually is a complementary solution to improve the later on experience on your traditional a service audio burruss these again. If you remember at the beginning of Said we're focusing on search and discovery and I think this is today. The greatest challenge that off castres have we're talking about over one million podcasts on Apple podcast today. How they'll be find what you WANNA listen to right now, and this is what we're trying to solve. And the way that we do, it is both by analyzing the entire content so getting a little bit more techie we will listen to all of this content than our system transcribes it automatically of course and Ben Segments, directive topics, and then cuts it into those short snippets that we call I based on understanding the story that is compiling the entire episode or compiling tire radio show. And we extract in this process week. Strike a lot of words and entities and audio cues in speaker identification to make sure that we can take those five minutes or one hour, and actually cut it into stories that would make sense on their own, and it's very difficult very different. Different than the radio, because sometimes a podcast could be on one topic for forty five minutes. And then where do you start? And where does it end? which is a challenge that we're trying to overcome with our own data scientists, and so the first thing that we're changing guess first of all the ability to for discovery, a so through search and abilities of really drilling down into the content of the episode, and not just under description that the podcasts are gave for writes a lot of time you're you're saying okay. Let's hear something about Madonna and made you a Donna was the name, but there's nothing about her. So this is what we're changing on that. And then through the process of actually creating those short snippets, we decided to create a different experience. Just like you've said so. If I were to want to listen to Pakistan Madonna I. Don't want to I. Don't want to spend forty five minutes or even thirty minutes until I figure out that it says nothing about the Donna. But if I can get some highlight if I can get a short snippet that of provide me with information of what's this podcast is all about I can then decide if I wanted to listen to, or I want to skip to the next one, and in many cases just like we talked before we started recording. You know even now with covid. We tend to listen to podcast because we're at home. We're not commuting than. Spending our time in on discovery if we can get those snippets and maybe even get educated on several podcast, listening to five seven ten minutes from each one, which is talking exactly to the to the topics that I'm interested in and kind of keeping me up to date, and if there is one episode that I feel that I really wanNA listen to more, we always provide that option and then sends you back to your favorite service provided to listen to the. The entire podcast so I know it was a long answer, but if I summit up then I, think that ERC, influence or impact theories on the search discovery on the one hand, and then on the other hand in the ability to expose as many podcasts as many content in short snippets. It's kind of like the twitter of audio right, so it's sure it's fast and It keeps you up to date with anything that you WANNA that you, WanNa, listen to.
What is Audioburst
"I joined audio burst as if product and managing everything around our product strategy audio versus spoken-word search and discovery engine that provides the ability to analyze radio, content and podcast content, and delivering it in short-form audio snippets, which we call bursts, answer the the name audio bursts, and of course everything is done totally automatic leveraging. And although technologies around it to eventually build a unique listening experience for spoken word audio, so just like you have your spotify or apple music for experience audio, versus changing the way that people listening to audio, cutting them into short snippets and keeping you up to date with everything that is interesting for you.
Hiring A Players
"Why do I say voice I space? What does that mean? K. Have. You heard this in called Alexa or Siri or Bixby? These are what some would say. Artificial intelligence devices to help you do a better job of whatever it is you WANNA do. And so if you create voice skills, let's say for Alexa which has over one hundred million devices out there. then. We say you're working in the voice first base. And so, if you're a hiring manager and you're trying to hire talent inada arena arenas. Yes in some regards, it's twenty thirty forty years old, but really. From a acceptance perspective. From demand if you will. It's only three or four years old. So. Had Laugh I saw job posts the other day. They were looking for. Can't remember exactly. WHAT THE TECHNOLOGY WAS IN A. And they wanted twelve years experience, but the technology was only six years old. So. That's what happens when you let hr. Get involved, right? They're going to bump the stats up the specs. If a an associate degree is good than a bachelor's degrees going to be much better right and while we go for a master's. Excellent. K May was Hud. Even masters. Degrees offered. So, as a hiring. The deck is stacked against. You and you already know that I mean if you've been at it more than a few months, you realize. It's. Is? They said when I enlisted. In the marine, corps the theme song was, we never promised you a rose garden and believe me. They deliver on that promise. So as a hiring manager, you're learning or have learned that. It is not as easy as the brochure makes it sound. In hiring one of those most difficult things. I worked on a project a number of years ago, staffing four insurance agencies. and. The thing was. Their business model, this particular company was take successful people with some money in the bank and say well. You ought to have a franchise for our business. And so they see yeah, that makes sense you know. The money looks good, and and as okay now you need to hire these three typical. Positions for your company. The only problem was the people that have been successful in life in different areas. They had no comprehension of what hiring men. Or. How do it effectively and so? I could go on and on your problem is. Your challenge is you've got stuff to get done? And you don't have the right people noth- people to get it done. That's where we come in. Particularly if you're looking for software development. Software developers. That's our. That's our sweet spot, so if you're in that space acid to reach out to me and the best way to do that, pick up your phone and dial pound two, five zero and the prompt say contact ski man. That connect us. Now. Let me know that you need some help. We'll have an old fashioned phone conversation. We can even do a video version one, but we're going to get on the phone. We're GONNA. Talk about what it is. What deadlines you're on what challenges you're facing from personnel perspective. and. I'll tell you how we can help. And if we come together. We're going to want some money to solve this problem. It's only fair, right. You want heat in your building. You have to pay the. The Heat Bill Right. You want the right staff you, WanNa, motivated staff. You want the best of the best. You want a players because if you don't know this if you're new hiring. You may not understand this the minute you hire a be player. You've set your copy on course to the bottom. And you may not recover from it. You need the a player. It's like you can't put something. You know rock and roll was exception right evert especially close enough for rock and roll. You've heard it. Pizzas Pizza. There is no really bad pizza. Might take exception that but. Pizza's good right. Well people are not all good, and not all people are cut out to do the role that you're asking of them, so take advantage of my thirty plus years in recruiting hiring of hard hundreds of employees for myself and for my clients. Only ever had to fire three. You know sometimes people sneak in there, but if you want somebody who's consistently able to deliver for. The A player. Then you want to reach out to me. Is that simple? And, if you've got questions again, call me. We don't really like to email. And by the way we've got a no ghosting policy. You can't ghost me. I won't go S-, you. In the talent that we work with will not ghost. You and you're not allowed to go stem. That's the number one complaint I get from talent. If you didn't know that K- hiring manager now you know. GHOSTING is a thing. In it tries people crazy as it should. It's disrespectful
Echo Show and Bixby Checklists
"I folks. It's burning hot top audio clip five thirty one. You are in my pocket. As I walk with my dog in the fourteenth July. Thinking about checklists. And automating routines so. If that's you. And your used to offering ideas. Yourself about what you ought to be doing. When you ought to be doing it, and how you ought to be doing it well, then maybe my meandering thoughts while walking my dog. Windy. With interest you. checklists are important for me because they helped me sleep better. When I look over what I've done during the day. And consider what might be there the next day a simple thing like looking at the Amazon Echo show. We'll tell me what's ahead. That set up the echo, so that has a screen. And on, it's eight inch screen I can see the next day is calendar. My son Dylan, he's nine. Has Put things on his calendar? By telling. His Echo. What he's GonNa do the next day he sets reminders, but he also sees our shared family calendars appearing. On that echo show. It's a bit of a checklist to see what's up the next hour or the next stay for the next week. I think these kind of events. Base activities are really important. For nine year old, it's the birthday where it's the trip away, or it's the start of the new school year. But nonetheless it's based on a rubric of a checklist. What are you going to be doing? What Day with WHO where? There are ways of taking his echoes show and integrating into a skill that offers him a chance to run a checklist by asking his echo. To run the Dylan. Nighttime checklist or running the Dylan. Go to school, checklist. What Dylan's done is he's. A particular to me the stuff he wants to do and how he wants to do it. And what we've done is we've gone into the Alexa Library. And carved out some simple skills based on some design templates so now using a voice command, he can activate a checklist. I'll tell you. It certainly has helped us. Get things in order in home that has. Two kids to adult and three animals. CHECKLISTS! By voice. Accusing the Amazon Alexa series. We also can activate a checklist using. Bixby on my Samsung phone for this by a voice command, I can telephone what to do when I'm about to enter a classroom or about to go home or about to get on a bicycle and certain things on the phone activate or deactivate. checklists. Mike Road. Takes the concept of checklists than bullet list and make some into sketch notes, so he activates a series of thoughts. Mind Map. Illustrated or Put in bulletin with this type format now. Mike Witt's tell you his sketch. Noting isn't a bullet list, but to me. It's similar as checklist based dueling system. That helps you get your thoughts out of your head. And on paper in a playful type of way I like it. How about you? You're listening to meet. Talking to you on the sidewalks of Plano Kinda chipper Ireland. Are you. Able to rewind the last ten or twelve hours and say yeah, you know what I followed a checklist I felt list based activities set and. It works for me pretty simple. It's record card and index card, or a piece of paper, or do you have something that you actually? Kickoff by listening to what the checklist is telling you for example is we can do on Amazon Alexa, or are you using something? A list based notional system tick boxes on Trello, notion, or as I'm using now on Rome research to get the work done. All these things are interesting to me. And I like to share with you how you're doing it. How are you doing your checklists? Do you have one. Do, you have an idea to share. You can contact me with feedback if you want. I always like to steal people's ideas about doing things better.

It's not only about what happens in the story, but it's mostly about who am I in that story? and. That's great. That is what people actually love. Right so getting your player or listener involved in in the story makes us. Hey guys! You've been building Alexa skills for some time. I know you built a bit with Google, but more recently. You built some capsules for big. Can you tell me what your experience has been like bixby? Every really liked the approach. kind of different approach. The speed cakes with the developers read. It was good that we will after the. Developer program that really helped us and developing our first capsules, because it was clearly easy to get feedback during the development. For example, he had issues because this audio snl features nudity published and was new for everyone, and that's while we needed. Because as we stated before text to speech is not good enough so v rare like what's audience and a possible, but then it was implemented, and we really got great help from. Yeah from you from Pitas was involved. I guess and one and. Our friend Daniel Mitten dove. He really helped us in developing. Undercuts Ulan that was great, so it was all in all. It was really create great experience, and yet we'll looking forward to will come on bixby sites, and what we can use to trust rate, even better stories. That's great. Thank you and I didn't know you. Guys had collaborated thallium BETTENDORF. Wow some great brains. All collaborated together love what Daniel. What you guys built, so keep that collaboration going because both of you are very very creative. People Hey SUSPI bixby lights on phones right now. I just released. It can build experiences for the watch, but it's also coming TV's inspired appliances later this year. What are those new devices? Get you most excited. We Love Innovation, and we are very excited about the development on the new devices. I guess. Is Very very cool are big screens and displays, because I think boys will perfectly match up with video or even gaming. That will be awesome I guess it will take some time to. Have some cool capsules, running as a game are very -ality of gaming and voice Merch, but this will be absolutely fascinating. You can't live in a virtual reality and walk through a fantasy world, and you're interacting with voice it's. Be like. You're actually there. Yeah I share your excitement about the TV I think that giant screen invoice adds such an amazing opportunity and thinking about more interactivity, and not in the traditional video game, xbox. Playstation Kinda joystick way, but while you're talking to your TV, I think that's going to unleash norris amount of creativity. Some interesting things come of the future so this share that I I share your excitement for the TV. Now Sidley. So speaking about this industry. What about the voice industry in general, what are you excited about? That's emerging are right now or you're hearing is going to happen in the next year or two or made me a better way to put it would be. What would you like to see happen? In the short term in the next year or two out with voice. What while maybe wise assistance that can finally recognize. Catch me owing. Mentioned it. Quite sometimes I really like our text to speech is emerging, and that it will eventually gets to the point where it can be really use for longer texts without annoying listener, but really to most him. That's what we're looking for. And also what we hope for is features like. That you can use background silence Oh background music, while utilizing as as L.. That's would be really cool to have. So, what about longer time what about five or ten years from now? Ask you use your crystal ball. What do you think voice is going to be like five or ten years? Where would you like to be five or ten years? Yeah the two possibilities. One! No one will. Voice like the data from the C sixty four. The young listeners won't know what I'm talking about. But also possible and much more probably the higher chance will be. That voice is an everyday standard in ten years. And all kinds of devices and media's will be connected by it and products. Moist services will have become much more individual than now. Maybe. There won't be any movie or a serious have one movie for everyone. You will have interactive movies which will follow your own like kings. Because the artificial intelligence learning what you like what you want, so I guess this would be really great. It will have a great impact and big impact on our everyday life, and are consuming behavior and an entertainment especially I guess. Yeah I share your optimistic viewpoint. You know it's just. I, have a teenage daughters. I called the touch swipe generation they expect to have. I think kids young young kids now kids being born in the last couple of years. They're kind of the voice generation, and they're going to expect to be able to talk to things. Right! What do you mean? I can't talk to my technology. It's I think it's going to be kind of ubiquitous is certainly. Not The only way to interact with technology won't be. Ten years now will still be probably swiping tight being in at but. You'll be able to go up to technology. Interact with it and talk with it. It'll be expected part of that technology, which is a pretty exciting future for us. Definitely, and it's not only about how the use our make use of technology. It's also how they see technology because I listen to. Keeps arguing with the father. And they said why. Why can't we play side with our friend? Alexa or why does a bixby has to go to bed? So for them as smart speakers, they are like France. There therefore them, they provides a cool input and cool things, so they have a whole different way of interacting have a different attitude towards technology than we have and I guess that this will be very creative generation. Who is growing up now? I'm very excited to see what those kids. Will create and do intend years..
NWSL Nation - Challenge Cup Week 1 Review
"Soccer's back soccer's back like we've watched it. We've seen it's. Forty minutes worth of it. Those the they fly by five hundred minutes fly by really yeah, especially when they're broken down in segments good. I'm glad they took my advice on that because I know the original plan was every match one after the continuously? Yeah, the the ninety ninety minute was was controversial, but I'm glad they went with it. You know it's every now and again I have good ideas. Any any who Mike. We have lots to talk about as we record. This are six matches into the Challenge Cup tournament. Every team is have Janssen play. What's four teams have played twice us, or we're going to dig into. These gives quick reactions and have look forward to to the next up around imagine by kicking off the. Match on CBS. Half a million people tuned in to watch North Carolina Courage Portland Mozart. Most watched. Time incredible and it'd be so much of all time. It was a higher view than a few EPL matches. That happened that day. It was a all cases a pretty strong success of course Mike I know. If you had your druthers, things, soccer wise would have done. A little courage defeated Portland thorns two to one. This thing was scoreless. Seventy five minutes in for Denia scored off of Haley Mace Cross Italy trying to watch so much soccer in the last couple of days, trying to like the July's all the goals correctly of course, Charlotte equalizing in the eightieth minute Lynn Will Williams putting North Carolina ahead in. In stoppage, time I'm just going to cut right over to you. First Match Back Challenge Cup immediate reactions. This was incredible and I say this is the thorns fan heard about the loss, but this was a fantastic match. You know you've got a big rivalry between the courage and the thorns lot of history there, we didn't know what it would look like with. You know such a long hiatus structure to the preseason, but it didn't disappoint new look lot of new faces for the thorns, but I think they exceeded a lot of expectations, goalkeeper bill, bixby and her and wwl debut had some phenomenal saves against you know. Courage onslaught, tons set pieces good work in the midfield by Lindsay Horon Rocky Rodriguez. The courage didn't quite look like the courage that we're used to. It wasn't quite the smooth billed from the back fast pace attack that we've come to know one love that being said they found a way to to make it happen, and their crosses into the box were lethal, and that's got the job done for them. Yeah I think a theme because we're obviously talking about the courage again toward the end of this I, think team on sing with North Carolina. They're known for their depth. They're known for their cardio. They're known for their technical skill level. And obviously just having a deep deep deep roster, topics, players, and it just always seems to come down to the same two or three people. With things close out I mean you're talking about a phenomenal group of talented players. The end the day comes down to Denia and. Then Williams. It's interesting. It really isn't ensemble and I. I think I think they did great work, but but you're right. It came down to that, and you know Lynn Williams's well on her way to. Showing up SAM curve the for the Golden Boot of the tournament at least. Yeah I at this point I'm. Talking about we're talking three goals at two games, it's you know it's obviously phenomenal performance on her independence looking well. Haley Haley Mason Samuel Ev looks really strong on the distribution end I think that they look pretty locked in there I think I'm Portland's, and it's hard to say there weren't too many heavy. This isn't necessarily the case where I think you're looking t better, dead or a lot of ways i. feel like Portland made a handful of mistakes that led them to give up two late goals True and one thing you have to say for Portland to not only are they coming in with a largely new team They've gotten hit. Pretty hard by the injury bug. You know we had eighty franch this out of the tournament. number one draft Sophea Smith didn't play. We don't know when we're going to see her. So we saw a lot of new faces, and they still put up a good fight. No, absolutely I actually one thing. I really came to Portland After this match, they were one of the most. It was one of the most sound defensive performances we'd seen across all the matches. We watch so far like I said I just think this. This was a case where the courage were able to take their strengths finder blemish where they could fit something in They're just phenomenally talented. When it comes to responding to cross well laser accuracy with that, you know finding people and bill each something that the bread butter, too, and they were able to connect it right the right time toward the end of the match I. They knew that they're conditioning. Just with depth of their roster helped them a lot which makes their most recent match all the more interesting overall i. Definitely felt like a good showing on both ends in, and really was a tough break. This is definitely it really would have benefited Portland to get points here and yeah. Yeah stoppage it was e can't get more dramatic, so it was. It lived up. Tech speculations

"For eight? I wish we did that today. So bixby starting the head in that direction to some extent, but there are still many aspects that got left on the cutting room floor that we still can't do. Like we did that. So Amu-, we definitely have entrepreneurs listeners, so I think they're definitely be interested in some of the things that you did to raise money for Siri I'd love to hear about you. Launch the successful APP Steve, Wozniak. Says as best app he's ever seen. Then something happened.

"The development tools are just kind of a joy to work with their super polished and developer, friendly and early on I was a big premiere developer so I got some. Sort of Nice kind of white glove treatment to walk me through the initial stages of that was great, so I think I found building for Bixby, although there is a bit of a paradigm shift. For sure you definitely have to. Change to this idea that you're kind of modeling, the information as opposed to writing a lot of declarative code. But once you make that shift. It's very natural and yeah. I really enjoy doing it. In fact, I haven't I have to go back. Because I'm getting deprecation warnings now so I have to go back and update things and I'm really looking forward to going back into bixby studio and working. It's fun. It's kind of like a playground in there. It's great. Well very nice to hear speaking about. It's on the phone right now. But it's coming to TV. Watches will actually deploy to watch his right now. Just recently announced its smart appliances this year. What are these devices gay most excited? Well in terms of Big Sky in particular I think watches, and actually the re refrigerators, also another really good use case for whether, but I think watches getting whether on the go win. You're out running, and you want an starting to look a little ominous and you WANNA. Know it's right. How long until it's GonNa rain I have a half hour left on this run. There's a case where in the middle of the run you're not gonNA pull out. Your phone or even open up the watch. Enter the small watch interface. Try to get this little piece of information so I think a great use case for voice, and also just the refrigerator. You're up the first thing you do in the morning might be opened the refrigerator. Get some orange juice or some milk. If you saw the weather forecast right there without even having to speak anything that would be I, mean I think those are both great use cases. So I'm really excited about those things. Yes, interesting of the watch because I've been playing with developing with it in watch apps today, whether sansom watches or apple watches they were, but there's a lot of your swiping on this tiny little one inch screen in boy. That doesn't feel very natural. It feels to me like the real natural interface for that screen. At is GONNA. Be Voice inside I get I. Get really excited because I think it's a modality. We haven't figured out a really great way of interfacing with. In hopefully voice will be kind of an unlocked to go. I talked to mostly, but many used that very small. You I! Used that way kind of augment works together with what I'm actually talking with the device about I think there's a lot of interesting things to be built there so to speak. Yes, I absolutely agree so really excited to get going in. Green big. Big Sky to the watch. That's one of my top priorities in the next few weeks. Also well look forward to it. How bad for voice in general what else you're excited about? What would you like to see happen in the voiced industry in the near term next year or so? What's happening? Let's get an excited or what would you like to see happen to get you excited in the shorter? Yeah well in the short term or medium short-term. Going back to some of these, we talked about I really would like. To see voice become more conversational. We started talking about an obvious use case for voices where you just want a particular piece of information. Don't to throw website to find it again. There's other cases where it would be. So much better. If in an extended interaction with an assistant that felt more natural, more conversational less like a phone tree, and I know Samsung is working on this and Alexis. Working on this Amazon is working on this you know trying to. Implement the things that are required to get that to happen like much more sophisticated context carryover right much more sophisticated understanding of what the context is. I really think that is the next thing that needs to happen and I see people working hard on getting it to happen in the next year or two or three. I think that would be. That's what I'm really really excited about. Yes it moving on what I call the kind of Bark Command states right now you Barca command the voices does something yet. Tour actually is conversational in. You can actually have a back and forth. Let's face it right now in any of the voices. That's pretty. Darn Limited. Yes, that's right. Yeah, yeah! I was just GonNa? Say I think that both of those things are great cases right so the bar command is, it's perfect for voice. It really is, but then so is this other thing and so we just need them we. We need them both. Absolutely no, no barking man's not GonNa go away. It's kind of the natural. What TUMBLR AUTOMATION BARKING MAIDS? That's what's a lot of playing music right? I want to listen to this music. By this artist and I wouldn't listen the live version from this concert will that's perfect voice Ui, but you really saying go started in a get out of the way less let me enjoy music. That's arcane coming out so nothing wrong with that. It's just kind of the state of where where it is right now. How about project further five ten years? Where already voice? Going in. Boy that's a tougher one I. Definitely see it being more pervasive. I think that is the one thing that I that I assume it's going to happen that sometimes voices referred to his ambient computing. And I think that's what's going to happen. That voice will be everywhere, and it will be interconnected with all right. All kinds of modalities and devices, so computing will just as it were in the air will just be able to speak almost anywhere to anything at any time, right and things will happen. like there's no reason why I couldn't be just in my car. Right and just say preheat the oven I. This thing and then I'll be out on the run and just be able to say actually change that three hundred degrees. Right in a context carryover will be there and so whatever device I'm talking about will know that in the car I set a temperature and the air. So I think that's going to be the future of voice. Will I hope that will get to us in the next five or ten years? Yeah. to think of. NBA competing kind of almost. Device Lois, competing in a sense that I don't have to worry about where the device is went device. It.

"All have this bright future an amazing feature for Voice. What about currently what do used voice for? What's he gonna be your favorite things that you see like that's pretty cool? I'm lame admitted when I started working for give I didn't use voice at all and then I worked for gives and and I started as I said. Hey you know it I'll start asking Alexa. Where Siri or big speed these questions and started using it more and more all admit you know. I'm a little name. I'm I use a built in that alarm. You know what's the weather? I use the standard down. The middle fastball voice stuff. I haven't really branched out into the more complex. Use a desert. Boyce that at our at our. I don't know if that's Lamer duly converted. Its its newly converted. I see I see the promised. I definitely see where it's going but it could be a and I'm trying to get into a kids on the other hand. Use It all the time. It ought up Alexa. They all the time so the Generational. I see it coming very strong yet. It's interesting I've been playing with voice for Forget Nego. What's your favorite experiences like? Will Lead to light us a lot so one thing I really like. There's a capsule and to skill as well. It's called Big Sky. It's for weather neither like it because it's frankly more accurate is a little more weather information with built in so I use that pretty much every day and of course a cool thing is now. It's my default weather capsule that's a whole nother conversation. The other thing. I've been kind of enjoying so. I really like listening to podcasts. And they're fun but you know there longer and you know just last episode. I interviewed are male jury. Who Does that the from travel? Fm All about short cast like these two minute kind of gets news information and Alexa HASSENKOPF. Flash briefings really similar. I've been a Fairly recent convert. But I really liked this liking. Put together like a ten fifteen minute briefing about Cowan. Another technology news. I'm going to know I'm a huge warrior's fan of not much happening Oslo right now. Like warriors news like the market on the stock market. And I can put together. He's two minute snippets into this ten. Minute a what's happening right now voice experience and I've applying without really enjoying it and finding a way to kind of keep up really quickly with what I like. Jonathan what would you like to do a voice Sherry so I like to focus on some of the more fun aspects of voice and I like the common stuff that the functional stuff like I have a few quick commands that use regularly to change six my phone settings at once like when I go to sleep or whatever but to me you know I have found myself making more memes then I would have otherwise like period right because it's funny because they Alex ran the guy that built me generator? Meme generator is actually the easiest way in to make me currently like it's easier than using the API that means generator even uses right. Which is I think. The image flip. Api But it's just so much to meam on. You know a device like it it doing voices faster than typing it out and dragging little boxes and stuff. That's the fastest most efficient way that I can make me and there's other things that I kinda hate to say this because it may seem a little narcissistic. I built my capsules for myself. You know I build them so that I could use them so when I interact with people and stuff and kind of introduced bixby to them. I always use my capsule copycat right to say something dumb to them right or use. My capsule story builder to Tell Them Dumb Joke right. Or if you know they like Trivia or something I show them Quiz Trivia and actually I play Quiz Trivia Trivia game oftentimes when I drive right because he's like Oh hey I'm driving right. This is the perfect time to play voice game. Which in my case. I use quizzes trivial because I enjoy trivia game but there's also some pretty awesome experiences that other developers have built like there's the last winner deb. Jam Tempest rising and he actually built something pretty crazy for the platform. He bill a chess game for it so I can remember the pieces without looking at your screen. You could play chess against the I as well if you if you have that type of the mental chess aptitude which I certainly don't so. I've never tried playing that while driving. But you know Some you guys out there. You guys should try it out. But there's this all sorts of fun interesting experiences on Bixby which would be great to see them bubble up more but we're working on that but yeah. I mean those are just a few things that I personally enjoy and use before all the time so eight Jonathan. I don't think it's narcissistic to build things. That your passion. I think it's not. I mean if you look at it. I mean many. The best apps out there are built by someone Beta passionate about something they built a metric startup founders started by saying. I found a problem or I have this passionate about this thing I want WanNa go build it and I'm kind of building it for myself in a bill for themselves and then they realized this is pretty cool. I think a bunch of other people like it right so they released an APP to the world even founded entire startup the basis ashes. So can people say. What should you building What world excites you? Go build something related to that. I think that's the smartest way to go builds on the and it's a lot more fun to go build something you're passionate about in really if you're passionate about something you're passionate comes through in like you built because people go. This is somebody else's really ashes about no exercise in way. They built their exercise. Capsule is really shows that they also work out too. I just think that's incredibly a good way to start. The best way to start is built. You're passionate about right at least minimum. It's a lot more. Flights were succeeds or not in the enlarged grand scheme of things. It's fun something you use right. At least there's one user of it exactly one very passionate user of it exactly. I'll tell you a good story that I adopted for evangelism one of my old bosses when when he was telling me questions. He uses to to gauge aptitude for action for computers at. We're looking for passion for technology. He's I ask. People in interviews. How many computers do you have? And always the good answers are like in a half or two and a half so. I have my new on my laptop building. That's kind of indecent arts on the floor waiting for a new video art or waiting for me to put rights. I've have a two and a half computers in. It's the same thing for evangelism. I just stopped at I. You know the way. I asked about aptitude for vandalism. Show me what you're building because I know you're building something I know you care about something. I know you're building something I.

"You know one of my favorite gifts of all time. I neither confirm nor deny these allegedly jurors. Hey what are that conversational. Ai In voice. A Jonathan made quite the career switch going and becoming developer. Enjoying Vivian was conversation on a I. I think that was your first professional. Experience with APP. Told me what does he? But that yeah absolutely I mean conversational is are really becoming mainstays within a day to day. Lives and to me. Like they're ubiquitous. Nature is really telling in terms of how much impact that they currently have in that they're going to have in technology and in the role in technology and actually really ties back into like Adam shires vision where you know the guy that built Siri rate. I mean he's the one that made this a reality for us to begin with in a way and to be working with him as well. It's incredible to see like the passion and also the usefulness and the vision that we have for voice and that ties back into you know like what is bixby's vision and why should we be excited about it and there's so many reasons to be excited and one of the first ones. I can think of is the incredible device ecosystem right and we're seeing progress towards really making that reality in terms of. Let's say if you do have a lot of Samson products around like you know I do right to have it all tie into a seamless voice experience. You know where you don't have to go through the usual cumbersome nature is of working with whatever a voice that you might be doing to calve of that conversation flow across would be an incredible experience and yet you know like just with with bixby. I've had to see so many creative ways to make games and things like this as well which also ties back into one of my original passions and I've had a ton of fun building like a various silly games or fun games and also playing games that the developer communities bill. So whether it's based on you know the pragmatic aspect of having all your devices works seamlessly or whether it's the fun aspect both Lewis to me seem really promising and exciting as an individual. Because you know I just have really had a blast making stuff for bixby and seeing what other people make for Bixby so yeah I mean that's really about it cool. Yeah you know. It's interesting because one of the things I have always loved about. Technology is kind of enables us to do things better humanity to get things done better and quicker Williams I dislike is kind of it. Always gets in the way right. I mean happens to me all the time. Sit DOWN TO GO. Check something on the computer in half an hour later. Right Pending Kinda sucked in and so one of the things when I first experienced voice got Alexa. Like Twenty fifteen or something like that. God Fun Toy Do it started thinking about the professional had been thinking. How do we have technology to help? Then gets out of the way right. I was like wow. This is really promising is I can ask it to go do something in this short interaction with it and it gets done but then it's not in my face and in the way kind of distracting me from doing other things. The more I thought about that the more excited I got about it in you know enough to go like I said. I left my job at gaping. I had this idea. Wordpress for voices may start up by the up him worked on that for almost eighteen months. You know I always say startups ideas. Cheap execution it's hard we add. Delete some challenges on the execution side members. A little early start voice. Start up in two thousand seventeen but who knows but I'm really like it because it's a really natural wade interact when we learned talk by talking. We're we're mumbling like as a baby right in first words the baby like Mommy or Daddy. You get excited. But it was a way. We learn to talk and communicate with humans whereas I had to learn to type in I had to learn to interact with the technology. I had to learn to swipe on my phone tap. I'd the learn the way that technology WANNA learn. Would strikes me. The voice is in verse. I know how to talk now. We're trying to teach the technology how to listen to the most natural way for humans to communicate and to me. That's really empowering in really interesting I don't think is not going to take over. Everything I think in ten years will still be type it in Swiping in all that but it really has a bright future. Because it's so I'll say human compared to having learn how to interact with the technology in thinking about that quite frankly what the opportunities are. What we can do really gets me. Jazzed and excited about conversational. Ai and embracing and that's really the fundamental underpinnings. Why get super excited that John? Bet You came at it from the other side you know having been I would do machine. Learning does machine learning with lots of different companies in lots of different engineering machine learning solutions. And you know. I look for confluence of acknowledges coming together and I knew that one of the places where humans and computers would work together is on software as software is something that is going to lend itself more and more and more to being built by Algorithm. It's very boilerplate. For the most part as developers. Everybody knows ninety percent of a plumbing code. It's protecting eva from one place to another form soon. Other whether it's database or or removing it from here to there you know the business logic is of dental vip berry small piece of what it is you're building a software Albert so I knew she learning and artificial intelligence or going to working together with humans in lots of different ways and I fully expect I say this on stage I fully expect to work for a CEO or at least an assisted CEO short because is are going to make decisions better than we are in in domains. You already see it in lots of different domains. Right into trading and reading x-rays and all the different scenarios a. I am or just going to make decisions other than we do. And software development is another one of those places it's going to enable us to build software more quickly and more accurately than we ever have been able to win in the and big be and what team vivid labs built is the first real tangible application. I ever saw you are actually working together other with an a I with a machine learning algorithm to produce something great and that would captivate. Oh Yeah it's interesting. I mean bixby. It's not just a for. The End. User is a is involved in development that's relate the first time I've seen that combination. There may be other products out there but that was a big direction so we.
"bixby" Discussed on Bixby Developers Chat
"You didn't know what evangelism is. I didn't know what evangelism is still a couple of years ago. I didn't know what it was and when the opportunity came up. There's a couple of things. One of US evangelism. I kinda raised the web to figure out. What the heck are they talking about in an ended up? It's interesting because I sat worked at GAP INC for years it did technology strategy and I spent my whole time thinking about. Hey How do we take? The giant retail business use technologies businesses napier rapes but budget times. You know really talking to internal people but hey how can we? Technology is part of the solution to that right that it everything from colleagues sea level suite executives and everybody in between and I realized I was like doing evangelism kind of internal evangelism right right have been talking about how technology can help solve a problem for you in the other thing. Go back and say one of the best basic advice I ever got was a boss. I had a Boston. I add for short time GAP GAP INC in. He told me he's like you know what he's like. You're all focused internally. You GotTa go external music you gotTa Talk to be believed Geiger conferences. You gotta go to cocktail parties. You GotTa do ask me Labor or not. It's funny because I love doing that stuff and so I kind of force myself to do it at first all nervous. I don't know these people and then I was like like this like I like meaning people pretty extroverted about technology. I do that so you know when a wetness of eight vandalism sounds pretty cool. It's a combination that you can still keep your hands on the keyboard and technically proficient and understand what you're doing but if you'd like to meet people like to talk to people and interact with them. Wow I don't see a lot of jobs that have that combination. Yeah and this is a combination of being technical but also being on top people so I love it. It's funny I I. I wish I had known about this career path. Maybe twenty years ago they go to does not never say back what. You didn't do anything different than I think. It's a fabulous career path something. It's a lot of growth in opportunity. A half had people ask me with AC as an evangelist. And I say well. I don't know it's an extrovert developer. Jonathan Woodson of Angeles. Yeah I've been at this evangelist GIG shorter than both of you but to me you know. Being an evangelist is really is the ideal combination of interacting with people and also coating right because like a as a developer. Like swinging code all the time you know you. Kinda just live on your computer and then it drives you crazy sometimes like some now thousands of lines of code every day or whatever whatever it is right and yeah I remember. That was my life before I joined. Viviana working for Samson Research. America is Code Code Code Code Code and then maybe at lunchtime I could talk to someone and then back to coding. So but that's the thing like evangelism. It's been great because it's not just like interacting with developers or creating content but also a lot of interacting with other people live right because I find that we're often conduit from developers to. Let's say the platform team or documentation or the capsule review team. You know I find myself often conveying like web people have told us to then and that's also a really rewarding part of navene evangelist. Because we get to see some of we get to see a lot of you know things that affect bixby or changes to come into big sleep because of or you know partially because of the feedback that we've received in that we've provided as well now kind of being the frontline people that deal with the developers and stuff like that. We really see what they go through and see their problems and and also we live their problems too because you know we were the ones work on platform as well. Right so yeah. It's been a really great combination and you know right now. We have a pandemic so we having gone to go to any of those fancy cocktail parties and those a cool events and stuff like that. And you know I will say I do miss that part of this job even though I personally a traveling much but the traveling that I've done four of this evangelism job is incredible. It's been awesome going to those voice events. Yeah I if I known about this job early to just like Roger you know I I might have gone earlier as well but I didn't know about it until I tried getting a job of it as well where you know we keep the evangelism named me. It's in vogue in the industry all it advocacy as the voice of Bixby and give to the community. Like you said on like you said we're also the voice of the community inside of vivid right so it's a dual role and mostly it's referred to as advocacy because of that right. It's the external of nationalism where audited. Alpers in its internal advocacy reached. A you know. Hey this is where this is where the community stuck a little bit. This is where we can help. This is how will can build. That will make their lives easier. And we're that voice back internally in most companies called advocacy. I Keep Bengalis idol as I love it and I. I didn't find it necessary. It's just in vogue in the community of endless advocacy. Now 'cause you tooth things. It's not just evangelism but it's my fault that we should give them vital. Well that's why I had to tell my father-in-law when I sit evangelism he's like you door to door in cell technology basically in a white shirt and black tie and. I'm not as people knocking your door. It just kind of explain it. You know exploiting Jonathan. You're talking about cutting all the time. Tell you guys a little little secret of people who work at the back in the day. So you guys know. I'm not an excitable type and I used to code all the time. I was quite excitable and so I. I broke in a couple monitors. Things didn't compile slamming monitor up and down or throwing monitor on the floor actually related build mile because I was absolutely sure. Why backyard is Developing Java? The My is right and of course it wasn't this pretty darn excitable cutting me. My need outs pretty fun. So people are not Writing Code. All Day was my savior through. My excitability is developed. Get Cranky. Are you like that? Jif of that guy like smashing his keyboard and then hitting the computer screen with the keyboard and all that stuff..

"This in this dot from that they knew really has true by brought up. Amac nicotine on a non-combat tree. Main reason to have got me really got started will thank you on yourself. Happy while doing so. Well thank you thank you are. Mel obviously music to our ears. But you know I think a lot of what you see in that architecture and what you. Bill is reflective of Adam Shire. Here's the founder a series so he kinda around one a voice assistance then been allowed. Which is the brains behind? Bixby is really gen to of voice assistance and trying to be. I'm really easy to easy is not the right word power. I think you were set at right at first. It seems complicated. But then you realize it's very our fallen away to put things together and build assistant. That's truly useful. I think Adam's vision is that assistance to far more than the kind of bark commands at mode that we're in right now and I think you see some of that in architecture is kind of enabling an unlocking Those capabilities to our oil based on on that subject. I think the wave me before I have to Kinda give a visual representation but we had to move at the block. You see some tools like bill the now but it's a drug rupturing and you can get up those who actually pretty cool better not very quickly but was attorney can really build a very functional use. What why because bill uncertain premises so it's very limited Do something easily candidate who something spectacular useful now on the other side mobile blood when you have needed London white. Hot Rod will be more cold. You have to know how the platform works. Get READY DO ANDREW IN. I bet devout if that is because you construct Ground must've the Of the platform at analogy to do more in create more one trusting a solution that Very trusting problem well in new internal user between the way at think when a translate transposed at that Using analogy he big speed and see what I saw in bixby. Was that really using a tool the actual really build to build a powerful and useful application in because I felt like maybe some of the other tools that can maybe was more bill to do. Mini drugs will be easy but powerful and so good. Well thank you. I think those will be music to many of our people working internally and they'd love to hear that that's a really good description. Hey I want to jump back to trouble again and tell me more about the business side. So what is Your Business Model for trouble? How you make money so good. The question Dexter so so whipped off the with trouble mixed money by allowing people to come to him to get more of the contents spill. Since the begin of trouble and never read it believed in his shot on people for creating contents and the reasoning behind on. Just because I felt like I would limit people that made you want to expand immense but the second thing is because I believe that for someone to pay for Service. They need to find value and if not the best way to have sustainable long on a long-term platform was to have everybody working on a Baffoni fishes without creating creating content to be aligned with them. So that's what the platform is free. makes money is about in diplo creating the content to make money as well so Nor the nausea in tickets. Maybe think of a plastic ichi Know you don't pay joe blow videos but if you ever make money though your dead he to take a cut of anything Way We wanted out. People decreed Dot Org you'll has any military impact. Were WE WANNA hand was the creator. Todd that content than we need you stick in percentage of that in a nutshell trouble money. Nah I should say the trouble is not making any revenue get by. That's the plan. She should actually Jin monsoon. Just being alarmed critters you'll have engineering money People whatever continent creating them is really truly valuable for people to pay for it Formula You just kind of helping with that equation. Great and I knew very generous free tear that leads people really create some things and I think if you go and correct me go and actually I tried it out and it's super easy to make recording. I can never release anything. Maybe maybe I need to start a short cast. I know I like to talk too much for short but I think it's really generous in across all the trouble platforms and then I also believe he has something that makes it really easy to enable an Alexa Flash briefing in your platform as well. So that's really powerful. It sounds like your idea is if you're starting to make money or have enough audience for your short casts. Then start charging you that makes sense. Is this your future business model? Is Your Business following all? We always have this purpose of mich should support creators Mitch. allowed to create content mixture image as many as possible. But when if they had the most money from the context as long as we wanNA build all the necessary tools that allow them to genuine from the content and allowed them as much as possible to focus on the content. That's really where the true by the several can never be able to create creek. Four them we want to be with his foods that can have that Critic content all generate from that content would any possible to mission. Could we want to be able to monetize that experience? And the witting of dialogue you an example when ticking Adrian simple from the gaming observe as example. Let's see you're listening to a short cast on gaining Adrian mentioning that. The new walk craft game coming up this week. He for example might put a link to purchase the game media actually linked to purchase the game. And you're listening to Weei like this game has signed up to produce the game now and if you could say your deal assistant I would like to purchase a new game that Adrian was mentioning intrepid tenure requests and no follow up and purchase the game for you probably only take to Adrian to just put the link yet. You Link Hey these link. Here's after link from on Amazon or any other platform in in we'll build entire pipe to understand with PM in that way. Adrian is making money truest content in travels having in making money true offending So I've tried to mention Exploring certain be making money true creators but also had allowing listener to dive into the content. So for example. Let's say just going to take another example here. You know maybe you having a show I so you're not us. Maybe taking the music example example talking about it on his. That has a show next week coming at you and the host of the short cast matching. She'll Yuma have linked when you van bright ticket for you to purchase to attend the show and you listen issue entrust Mr. Hey a love to to to participate for that show coming up next week and then you can just By just saying that in travel. Take Yoga Query make the purchase. You'll be have an will be probably just collecting a little. Small percentage of that that transaction. You know I think there's an opportunity there and what you talk about and I think you're real thought later on now so if you're interested contact our mail around us because I think our Mellon. I've talked about this at length about how to monetize and but to do short firm audio and you probably could spend an entire hour talking about just that but I think you're just in such a great position being such a pioneer in short cast and thinking about this and to go and find a way to monetize that because that's where the industry it has to go beyond might think you're right. Some interactivity were there. Some commerce added or something interest or premium content. Just so many things there that can be done but I do want to switch gears and I wanNA talk back about bixby and one of the things. That's happening right now. You can develop and deploy to Samsung phones from beyond but right now you can develop for the watch the smart refrigerator. Tv and later this year will open a marketplace. So if you'RE SAMSUNG. Watch or a Simpson Fridge over the world's largest TV manufacturer Samsung TV Experience Bixby on knows. What those devices gets you excited saw. Talk to travel. Suspected untucked from generate Speed perspective I think. traveller's perspective at the watch is really interesting. Just because of the someone has watch. I'm just thinking about people running hall Try being just being able to access. Would you on the man Galaxy Baas then you can just access. You'll you'll be doing this. We need your phone a powerful. Maybe one thing we haven't talked on the PODCAST BIANCA. Briefly touched Interesting that I feel like one one thing that people are battling with Mr. Without knowing is this concept of information overload that think in this day and age people a Guinea Too much information that you can actually put this in. That can be very overwhelming community stressful at think knowing especially with the Kobe. You can see it right so you get. Don't have to you you look Listen couvert it's everywhere enacting Israel well-meaning and you actually we as human reduction only much. You just need you most of the time. You just need to know enough to be to be good to go with this. Dangerous conduct everywhere. But I think what's also about? The voice questions asked me about the future Things entrusting that would voice. You can have this ability to to help people Step back that informational below and kind of fighting will be more with travel. I think it would show gas. That's also been Of the motivation addition behind the platform is allowing people to be able to to to filter to the Nice right because the unfortunate baffling twitter facebook in a bunch of other platform. I think one of the challenges that unfortunately was plus Architect it for you to spend as much time as possible day. Which means that you know when you're going to pass on you have to consume more continuity probably need which is not a good thing. I think with trouble is different. Pie them because We thinking how can we help you spend less time with the platform bay? Get exactly what you need right so I'm really happy I'll be worried if I say someone's being dwells on travel What what's going on? Why so much time right the goal with troubles happy get wet wedding. Ni Insurance SORTA short amount of time Pasta in one win. We we do that by further format short gas for short. No people don't get more than what they actually need to get and you can have the ability to dive in if they get mall but you can make that choice if the need to force force do that but also got the platform when you sign up actually get to choose for out the dead. You actually want to listen to you. And that's a conscious decision because it's forcing you to make Actually care about the most right. So you come platform at one of the senators from this person from that person and you kind of creating. White wedding was entrusted by. That's I step is reading. Imported allows you to take Position What is important to you now. I feel like I have to go back to. Your question is the wanting I thought it was exciting. This watch because the small screen of the West might allow people to be considered with the full on the on the phone as much and by having you have this device that deacon used to still stay connected getting permission to the unique without the have to allow screen. 'cause the problem with the screen that kind of it's like a snowball effect cuts the screen is very small insects. The data looked Keeps quoting coding? So all the screen is small and you can also get a lot contents we industrial Should and I'm excited about the West because I like watch always had this potential to allow the people to take a step back with the sweet. That's personally the one that made me from travel in speak perspective By but I feel like from a big P. Perspective on general it. I'm rick.
How Bixby Premier Developer Ilarna Nche Got Into Voice
"I've I've always been someone who was introduced technology. We're offer late. I I think it's combining Kylie. Because when I was at school they would. They wouldn't really introduce technology. Ict would be very very simple basic excel sheets and power points. And it wasn't until I was in sixth form which is like I think. High School for you guys About sixteen seventeen years old when I was introduced to a computer science as a whole and that Brady opened my eyes to various ways of communicating with technology and I fell in love with programming. And that's when I kind of realized that. Wow I can make a website amend. I went to university and I could do mobile apps and it was kind of at university. That's when I wanted to learn more about this whole world of technology and that's when I discovered the Alexis personally because they if that's an advert on the TV added it was this Little Echo added. You could say hello. You could speak back to you and not really amazed me. It wasn't really about voice. It was about the device that there was this device. That could talk to you because obviously we have assistance on but something about the the device really Mesh It was just really mesmerizing. Because I have that on in the kitchen living room and I fought a great present to give to my mom so for Christmas I got her that device and then I found out later on because all these APPs on there and I remember suss out replayed was a skill cold beat the trump and my mom got the skill cooled off things like boyfriend skill. Elect talking back to you AD. I was really amazed at these skills. One actually on the device already these were made by third party developers and I beat it. They wanted to be a part of that because I was like. This is so cool. I thinking what attracted to me as well with that with mobile apps you have to think about visuals and design whereas with voice you still have to focus on design for voice. Bought the visuals which was a big obstacle for me in the boss. Wasn't that so that immediately attracted me to start digging in and watching on this APP and I made my my my first voice skill called odds on which really simple it was mentioned this game where you would say one two three men say not the number and if you matched with Alexa you could bend do like a day or something That was that you didn't want to do so that I think we'll also helped with the documentation that the Amazon team provided in the first place because without that I really think that it would have hinted on the process of how far I go because they were so help me. Understand my oldest. I can do this. Because I had Zimmer experienced invoice technology I'd zero experience in some like Python Python experience but I didn't know how to with like sdk's or the cloud aws cloud so I had zero experience and just brew this voice industry. I've just not so much I've gained a lot of skills out and it's definitely helped me to get to where I am now. I learned more more software integrations and before so this was during university by the way so hadn't even graduated yet but I started making more and more skills and I kind of wasn't that mindset of I want the Swag I want the slack gave you so every month they had they would like have a free Hoodie. Have Afri Daw at acclimated like ten echo dots for the promotions and then when I got the rewards email the Alexa rewards. Email us when it was like. Oh so this could potential here for getting money with this. It's not just something to get cool goodies. So that was another motivation. Always like okay because I was in my final year university. I didn't know what I wanted to go down to whether it be web development will member applications and then oversee voice was another another game player and I think out of order. They're not score Interested in most so when I released the adventures which is something I'd made when I was eleven years old and for some reason I never put it on new cheap because these audio adventures and I thought I could be a perfect platform to put on because it was fairly new and this was before they accepted children skills so I got an email from them saying than allowed to do that yet but as soon as they allowed children's skills to go through. I was right in that put it. I put it on the platform and entered this competition that they set up the kids and because I was one of the winners I managed to basically use the winnings from that competition to really focus for a year after graduating on just focusing on voice of making legit apps so that whole year which was lost like last June of last year making voice applications and then I go introduce to Sam some bixby as well. Add again another interface with try which opened up my world voice and another platform which I had to learn about and understand how everything works and then towards the end of the year started working with matchbox who again our company that have made questioned the day which again I foot was one of those bus party. Invocation skills the electorate us but now it was made by by them and one of the big skills that are being used right now to be able to to be with a company that has so many amazing skills and applications are now on not just. Alexa Samsung and Google. It just shows how this is the start of a voice. This is not this is something that's just started and I feel like the training took the training wheels come off now for a lot of developers are starting to get down and get used to the whole voice industry and how it's going to operate in a few times so just getting to this. This pot has really. I guess especially with this year and how it's gone I think voices something that can really accelerate and probably has given people more of more trustworthy made them more trustworthy of technology. I feel like before people were very very reluctant to use technology. But now in this day and age it's made more open and actually Allows them to seeing the positives and I really do think that I think a lot of tweets of About people who are more welcoming having Alexis? Herman not worried about the privacy and I could see that this definitely. With the usage that people have seen with their applications voices Stephania forefront to. What's to come the future mumps as
Voice Assistants, Mental Health, and Pandemics with Roger Kibbe
"Great. Well thanks Terry. I really liked to think about this is I think. A Better Title from my talk would have been using voices since to help. Maintain our mental and physical health and these very very challenging times whom I really briefly I carry mentioned a developer Vangelis for Vive labs division. Samsung behind bixby on my twitter. Handle is at Roger Kibi. I just personally two daughters. I live and was raised in the San Francisco area. Uc Berkeley graduate actually have a degree in psychology by work intact so handsome my interest in mental health goes back to what my degree is back in school although I work day-to-day document bixby. This is all about. I'm GonNa talk a lot about Alexa. I'm GonNa talk about Google Assistant I'm GonNa talk about bixby. This is for the world of voice assistance this presentation. So what's happening? So two major things Rawal aware the traumatic event of coronavirus cove nineteen And Its impacts upon the world. In order to mitigate this in a flat in the curve for all asked to be social distancing really that's leading to social isolation for us so two major things are happening from a mental health perspective when you think of when a traumatic event there several issues that arrive People get stressed health issues arise. There's a feeling helplessness. Feeling OF PANIC SUBSTANCE ABUSE ARISE ARISES POST. Traumatic Stress Syndrome is a problem and in social isolation. Has its own mental health issues as well loneliness. Depression health issues anxiety substance abuse. So scientific term non kidding the layman term really have a kind of a double whammy from a mental health perspective going on. We're this horrible disease. Rampaging globally and the you know. The way to mitigate is is obviously isolate ourselves but in isolating ourselves. We also increase some of the challenges from a mental health perspective. And I just have a bunch of headlines from major news outlets there that you know this is not unknown. People are starting to talk about this and be concerned around this so the question I wanted to God answer is how can you use your voice assistant that you have in your home? Run your phone today to help with us and I have a bunch of areas by think voices could really help with some of these mental health challenges that are arising because up cove in nineteen and because the social isolation a raw feeling but first of all maintaining connection. I really liked what Terry said. what was it? Social were physically distancing. It's socially connecting. I thought that was fabulous in a great way to doing it and so I think about how can we socially connect well all voice assistance? Allow you to make phone calls and why that's important to give voice assistant. You're smart speaker is a far far better conference. Call tool in your phone. For instance signed encourage people is that but even more exciting and interesting to me is using video calling so I've been on a bunch of the zoom based virtual happy hours and it seems my life sits on zoom Mostar workweek on now. But you know I'm not GONNA ask my mother-in-law to learn how to use zoom on the other hand is she had a google device with the screen. It'd be a simple saying Alexa. Call my mother-in-law's name and then we could chat and it could be a video conference and we can all share that likewise google has the same way. Hey Google video call you have to set up do out there but I encourage people. I think it's a great way to stay. Connected is via these video calls or video conferencing. I think the very best and easiest way to do that in a non professional setting is quite frankly our voice assistance with streets because they have built-in and they made it so so very very easy to stay connected and that so critically important and we can't go out and interact the way we normally do with people on a day-to-day basis off stay connected stay connected with friends and loved ones music video calls to do that.
Talking Jovo with Jan Knig and Ruben Aegerter
"I want to get back to Jovo you. Guys recently launched version three. Either one of you. I just WanNa can you give an overview for listeners who may not have been on top of that news of exactly what was involved in version three? What's new with version three Surya Let me get started than Ruben Talk a little more about the expanded because he built it so Jovi. Three is all about enabling developers and companies to advise to any platform or device so we see of voice as essential parts Off a product ecosystem that that companies half we WANNA make it easier for them to build experiences into into anything they can offer and so one part is building vice atop of existing platforms like Big speed now like Alexa. Google system than other parts are also to build voice into mobile APPs in phone experiences. We offer Integration for example. We offer mobile APP as decays to really built into mobile apps and then also custom hot weather so we we have. We have examples where we can build a voice assistant into respirate pie for example so this is all powered by a pipeline called rider pipeline. That makes it easy to interchange. Certain building blocks for a speech recognition for natural language understanding Texas beaches on so our goals for the three was to build an abstraction layer. That makes it easier for people to add voice anywhere. I love that anywhere. So let's kind of evolving from you know you guys are super well known for probably the very best in the premier framework for building costs. Franken Alexa Google right. Because that's where he got started a now you're saying not only adding additional voice platforms up at light speed. Which ASCII Ruben about in a second? But all these other places if you want to enable voice Joel is a framework to allow you to name that I love that. I think it's it's sorely needed. Because voice is preyed on voice assistance.
How Teachers Can Use Alexa To Enhance Learning
"Am the director of Instructional Technology and innovation at Chattanooga Christian school. You're intending Tennessee. My role here at the school is to really just help and teachers students and parents figure out how to use technology to support learning and that looks very different in day to day in class to class. We are a school that uses the Learning managed learning management system canvas and so a lot of my time is spent helping. Teachers get on board with canvas and creating the content for their courses. But then there's another side of the thing I do. It's just really helping. Teachers Look at water emerging tax water technologies. That are out there that we can really use to To really just under guard the learning bits in the classroom and never believe in technology like leading. What's happening in the classroom? I think the the great thing about education is the relationships between the teachers and the students but anytime that we can create efficiencies are create ways for the learning to be expanded than technology allows those type of things to happen and those those are the things that just really get passionate and so with that I started looking into voice technology I guess it's now been four years ago and slowly have Had some teachers here get involved with using voice in the classroom Most recently worked with a group of our. We have an international exchange. Student Program worked with some international students all from Asia. Who have are really knew English learners in so I work with Begum to create some voice opportunities to help them with learning not only like new words and vocabulary but helping them Study for tests outside of the course that they were in so they really struggled with the wellness course that they took because the phrases that were in. That course weren't familiar to them. Also biology Those names for the different body parts and things like that. That was really hard for them to memorize creating a voice skill that helped them memorized for tests. It's almost like a a voice study guide so to speak so those are the things that I feel like. The voice does really well in education so far but I think the opportunities are great for it to be even more and I feel like I'm also a podcast after and as a podcast. Her for the voice in education which is helping teachers learn. How do I use voice in the classroom safely? Taking Students Privacy into account And what's next and so my my goal is to kind of help. Not only am teachers. Figure that out but developers and the Google and the bixby and that Alexa of the world's Kinda see from the view of an educator. What is it we want? What what would help education? So I kind of feel like I've become this evangelist for education voice Not Truly looking for it. Just kind of happened yet. You're you're working with teachers. You're working with students. You're working with probably administrators parents and even developers so you have all these different stakeholders and you've accumulated a lot of knowledge. Tell us what do you mean when you save voice because there's a lot of people probably watching this and listening to this? That aren't quite sure and they may even be like Similar to your role or they might be in the classroom. They might be running a small business and they have no idea what voice means so tell us what do you mean when you say bowl oysters and you mentioned. Alexa skills and Google Dixie. And then also tell us how long. When did you first start identifying voice? Because I love what you said. You're looking for technology. Not THE LEAD. But technology support and make learning and teaching more efficient and effective similar to how data driven design is trying to help businesses be more efficient and effective voice that technology for US. So tell us what do you mean by boys and then? When did you first identify boys as a technology that can support everyone's goals so when I say voice at this point in time what I'm talking about is the voice assistance so an Alexa? Google Assistant Actually Samsung Bixby Creating some voice opportunities then not yet. Have I figured out how to use those in the classroom? Because they're they don't have their own device at this point but those devices putting those devices in a classroom and what it allows for For the classroom is to have a But not lose that Community feel in the classroom so I can ask you know for instance I can say What is ubiquitous mean? And I don't have to look down by Antipodean and look at dictionary dot com and then read it back. I can just look over at the device. I can ask the device and I haven't lost my students in the classroom. So that is one of efficiencies that it brings to the classroom. I believe Because it is communal in nature. I started doing the s looking at it as a possibility in the classroom. Actually four years ago I bought my very first one of those very tall original Alexa. I don't even remember what it was called at. This point took it into a middle school class. Ask The teacher. Hey can I just see? I didn't really have a plan. I just wanted to see how the kids interacted with it and it was there for ten minutes and I went no not going to do you. Wake kids are asking things I don't want him to ask. It just became this novelty but as time has moved on with any emerging technology there it becomes more and more useful or more and more of an ability to see its potential usefulness. And so that's where I think we are. We're beginning to see the potential usefulness in education when it first came out it just did seem like a novelty yeah. It'd be great if I could answer. Answer that question. But for an educator or anyone in an edge technology role you have to look at the pros and cons in my mind. I my former former accountant before I became an educator so I see this T. Chart in my head all the time of debits and credits in one side I'm looking at. What are the benefits of this and on the other side? I'm looking at whether the detriments of this and I believe wholeheartedly that we're in an era where the benefits are beginning to outweigh the detriments. And because they're so immersed in the world that we're in to ignore it seems dangerous to me because if we continue to ignore it then it's going to become something a we didn't really want it to become as educators and B. E. It becomes something that we have to adapt to instead of. Adak helping to adapt
Voice Development and the Creative Process with Ilarna Nche
"Today I have the honour talking to Alana Chad who's a voice developer. Whose boiled many many different experiences for Alexa. Google and bixby. And what really impressed me about Lorna is her creativity and all the things that she's done with voice. Some really really excited to talk to her alarm. Why don't you introduce yourself? Hi everyone my name is Alana. I am twenty four years old. I am working on voice. Assistance will be free is now and I recently graduated from the University of Kent For Year pursued. Waste Industry Kind of Siebel where it was all about added Paid off and I've recently been announced Alexa champion and will serve Recently announced as bixby develop theories. Well said a very pleased with how guarding. I'm glad I took the the junk ready grades. And congratulations on being the bixby developer. The air at project voice and Being Alexa champion. That's quite an accomplishment of I have to ask you. What did you get your degree in technology degree or completely different? Yes so I was down that route of going into university in thinking what do I actually want to do and I never I? I was at the point where we have to decide what route you wanted to go down. I'd never really done any of computer science or anything up until hours around sixteen years old because they didn't ready introduce that into into schools much so it wasn't until I was sixteen. Monday introduced Him It's like a high school the high school side at. That's what I saw and I was like. Wow I wanna try it and I kind of not with the whole computer science as and I knew then I wanted to do something in that field but did I want to do it as a job. So that's why I chose. Degree weather is very broad so it. It kind of varies from Web Design to games designed to photography reading modeling like any module any cool secret drink. It was very very broad. Silos able to be like take if I liked it will hide the just will not go down that route because I actually did want to do reading log lane. I thought was really cool. What I saw the course at Casino Harry possible violence the Pixar than when I came to ours like actually this is quite hard and also quite you have to patients because you'll be making a ten second clip in the whole time. I literally I. I have the patience with that. So I did like the whole mobile application development and everything else that came with the coolest so I tied down the the programming side. That's how I kind of figured out went to be in fields. Great you know I encourage people to go explore different things and try things out right because who knows I think should reinvent yourself every end years and figure out what really excites you and go pursue it and even if that means a big change so good for you to try a bunch of things and and you landed on something you enjoy for right now and Yeah go pursue it so learn by my count you created twelve different Vicky capsules and they arrange everything. There's some educational capsules was capsules. Fitness. There's an. As Amara capsule yes in Quiz Games. Can you describe a couple of those big speak capsule in experiences? Yes with with big beat being so new and that the market is well. I I wanted to basically kind of see which type of capsule John kind of like making the Live at the mall one. It was simply something. I bake these experiences to me some cause before I related to other people by decided. Let's take an approach. Like make them for myself. I would you so I'm a big fan of they. Samah I love going to sleep to the mall and I noticed that there are no asleep. Sound experiences out that the A very big market. When look on Youtube for example a lot of people do love a law on it so different to ambient noises because of the whole experience is supposed to deliver this brain light tingle to grain and relax your brain so I wanted to make one and the best thing about putting it on bixby. Robin like Youtube is that we've topped the screen on and you're trying to get to bed the light shining in the room at least if you put it on a voice platform than kind of eliminate the whole having to have screen on and you can just listen away and go to sleep at sun baths with the small one with education. I've kind of always with me being in education for so long you kind of It's kind of a nice way to just keep shop and keep lining whether is learning a language learning maximum stuff stuff that you kind of need to keep learning with at and also fitness. I never really did many experiences and I wanted to see especially when it comes to the end of Christmas. Everyone's not fitness mentality. And you always WANNA keep so i. I've never tried one of my capsules. I made my yoga. I never done yoga before. But I forbid good. experienced Yoga positions as well as make something. I could use to win. You know I love it when people say they built something for themselves she we're talking about. Am tomorrow the Yoga Capsule Education Capsules Unit? You sound found personal benefit to these any wanted to share it and always find that when you build from the heart something you just do your much more motivated and it really really shows in the quality of what you build so great great job you touch them. This a little bit alarmed. But how did you first get involved with building for voice? What what motivated you to to build for this new medium. The main difference the main encouragement life for me to get into voice was honestly. I did that Michael sweaters on full of different modules. And I I knew that where I struggled was with visual graphic design and I love my lapse. I really did want from that. Was My design Like designing the the APP so visuals so when we Amazon dot came out. I notice that you could speak to it. And it will these skills and I didn't realize it was a third party developer. Who'd made these this experience so i. I love learning skills. I'm always up for landing anything so when I when I saw you could make one yourself. I jumped at the opportunity and I started building. It was really simple experience. It was gang could odds on why you would not match the same number of Alexia so that was by really enjoyed Also collected have to think about the design side of things so fast already love love voice. Yeah that's great so it sounds like followed your strengths so I was gonna ask you. What your first voice experience was. But you said it was the odds-on is that still out on the skill store. I had I had no idea still lacking yeah. I think we all have our first things that we built. They think the first thing ever built is a jokes scale. I don't know if you're not have to go check. But when and how did I get started developing bixby itself? Yeah so I was invited to be developer partner program and yet I was told you want to start developing on BEC- speak I had heard expe- before the the the sound on Samson Introduced to the essay the Galaxy S. nine and I was like of course anew scaled the I'd just I just love learning anytime some of that. Something I'm like. Yes for and then the Simpson team. What me on. Everything the ide- e the Bixby Studio hand it kind of was very very intimidating fast. Because I was like a new platform is different syntax using bid. I'd never hundred full but I think it made it easier once I once I kind of just in that whole Amazon Mine Alexa. Mind watching the fall but once I remember that was we did not. You did a tutorial that Webinar with the horoscopes. A yeah actually. I think it might have been atom uncharted the Horoscope to Joyal few. It was about horoscopes. But yeah coding without him. Yeah yeah it was yeah Lebanon end it was like Every helped so I always say like a lot to learn. Visually visual linings. Always our big eight for me. I I kind of documentation is good with support. The I thought visual AIDS so when there's a lot of videos stuff out there examples not the example is really helpful. It really helped kind of move my Experience with big speak
Voice Is the Next Form of a Company with Project Voice Founder Bradley Metrock
"What's up everybody? I'm Paul Hickey here. With Bradley met rock he is the CEO of score publishing but he is also many many other things Bradley. Thanks for joining us today. Why don't you give everybody kind of an overview In a little bit of a bio of yourself. I think you're probably going to do yourself justice here. Paul I appreciate it. I appreciate You give me some of your time this morning in Jumping on with the yeah. My name is Bradley. Met Rackham CEO Score publishing which is based in Nashville Tennessee. We are not a normal publisher. So we We do a lot of things that have caused us to be around the center of the conversation on voice technology in the underlying a machine learning that supports it Two and a half three years ago we started a podcast network of voice first. Fm Which is now listened to across fifty six countries by hundreds of thousands of people predominantly technology professionals One of the flat. You know the flagship show voice. I at them has called this weekend voice. I host that myself That show concluded last year with mark. Cuban is the season. Finale guest were in the middle of season. Four right now We produce the voice. I events series which is a well known and enjoyed a series of events leading the discourse on voice technology in a culminating project voice which is number one dead for voice technology in a in America in the week after. Cas So yeah we do. A number of things and We enjoy shining a light on interesting people doing interesting work in the space. And all of the pioneering that's going on and so here we are and thank you fanatic and you and I have Have become really good friends through the work that that we both done in. I'm just kind of educating people and particularly businesses about how they can use a Alexa and Google assistant and the other the other voice assistance in smart speakers out there and I WanNa thank you for all the work that you've done with myself with data driven design team at Jumping a little more of that but I One area that I'm really passionate about is really explaining in. Educating how businesses can benefit from Voice Technology. How many businesses? How familiar do you believe? Businesses currently are with voice APPs Alexa skills and Google actions. Yeah I mean I think it varies but in general it's pretty low and I don't necessarily view it as I view it as defense of in nature rather than offensive in nature. I think a business Really almost any size Almost including mom and pop gas stations. You know but certainly on up from there As you get into the enterprise needs to be working with voice or working with groups like data driven design who are working with voice on their behalf so that they are accumulating knowledge and they're getting acclimated to the space There's plenty you can do with Alexa. Twenty new with Google assistant some of these other voice assistants have interesting functionalities company law like Samsung Bixby. And things like that. But The bottom line is that if you're not Delving into those waters that you're falling behind. You're not understanding You have no hope of understanding how voice search is working now. It will work in the future. You have no hope of understanding sonic branding and how you need to be thinking about that with regards to voice experience You have no hope of understanding. Accessibility related issues. That currently keep a lot of your customers from interacting with you like they might want to and voice would open those doors so I don't view it anymore. I think the time has gone where it's offensive you know. Hey let's get out in front of this thing now. I do it as its defensive. And you're you're behind and you need to get caught up I think business owners and marketers have a tendency to think of voice as just one more thing that they have to learn how to do and one more thing to their long to do list but a good friend of Mine Brin Plumber. Who's over at the National Entrepreneur Center? And she's involved with the national voice. Conference said to me that she was surprised. Coming out of last year's national voice conference at what a low lift boys can be for businesses and how turnkey it can be to actually pluguin to help them be more efficient effective and not be just one more thing to add to their list of things to do. Do you think businesses know that they can build custom applications for Alexa? Google assistant disliked. They can with websites or mobile absent. And how those can actually help them be more efficient and effective. I think some of that knowledge is there. I think They probably don't know you know the reason that it's not that hard to do They just Like a lot of other things they They WANNA turn to professionals. You know and and really You know 'cause there representing their company I I I don't think it's part of the the mental calculus for a lot of companies like do the tools exist. I think it's I think it really boils down to Understanding what the use cases are and understanding what the capabilities are and You know and and for many I just gave a talk last week in San Francisco And to to a room. That should have been on the cutting edge of all this and and Crazy enough. It was a former Amazon employee. Telling him coming up at the end of the show. The talk telling me My God I had no idea about any of that and so you know. It's there's a what you and I have seen. Paul is that The velocity of change with voice technology is so high that there's so many features being added on a weekly basis Because it's all in the cloud to ship anything. All you're doing is changing stuff on the back end and all the user ever noses there's still interacting with Alexa. I don't know about that. New Feature quietly rolled out two days ago. This velocity of change has caused the whole business world to have a lot of catching up to do. I mean it's only the first step to understand. Okay there's people interacting with the LEXIN. Google assistant like these smart speakers are the next form of a once. You realize that you got a long. You're not even close to done. You got a long way to go into in terms of understanding the full scope of what's going on so you know we're all behind in a way because even with a show called this week in voice I constantly joke that You know when I came out with a show I didn't think we would ever have enough lose to fill a week like I thought we would just end up talking about the same stories week after week after week for a while. Now we can't possibly cover everything It it's a joke like we either so much going out and we can't. We have to really be selective so Yeah I mean. It's easy to get overwhelmed. And that's why you have groups like data driven design. That can help you. You need to start getting in there and and learning a thing or two and making mistakes. And and sort of accumulating experience. Because if you don't your competitor is yeah. I think that's well put You're absolutely right about use cases. I I totally agree with you. I think that that's where businesses have gotten hung up recently in my experience investing invoices. They don't totally understand yet. What the use cases potentially be for their audiences whether internal or external how It doesn't necessarily have to be a marketing or a content. Based of boys APP. It can be something internal it can be Alexa for business. Private skill for example. That can just Kinda help. Help me get things done and I think another thing you hit on a really resonates with me that I've tried to talk to business owners marketers recently about that. I'm working with is the concept of a minimum viable product and just getting started and to your point whether we're all behind or whether we're all head You know it. Kinda doesn't matter. It's all about getting started trying something and then building on top of that because you're right. Things are changing so constantly. I sent a proposal out to client To do an Alexa skill for them and then literally like two months later. I had emailed the client and say look. I found much faster ways doing this. That are now available and you know I I can get you this or like you know one tenth of the price now because we had the custom code three months ago now. There's a tool for that. Now you know for example Alexa presentation language. Allow us to do this thing that it didn't allow us to do before and so now we can. We can make these things happen and so I have the same business owners. They kind of get. It are now wanting to wait to see like well. What's going to change next? Maybe something will be a little bit lower
"bixby" Discussed on Bixby Developers Chat
"Yeah. That's a tough one. The current plan is to stay the course. Things have been going really well at least for twenty twenty. That's the plan like I said things have been going well. I'm going to be finishing my degree after a period of time where I thought I wasn't going to be so I'm comfortable just continuing to do what I'm doing because it hasn't been working looking at the year after. That is the year that I start looking at making the observer a full-time thing maybe a part time thing with another part time job in real life Really trying to monetize Because then that's going to obviously be a huge life change. I'm going to be graduating. I'm going to be looking for a job if the observer can't be my job but as it stands. I'm really just looking at head down yet through school. Keep producing really great content for twenty twenty and hopefully that's going to really propel me in the twenty twenty one. Sounds like you'd like to make the The observer your job I would. Yes it's a. It's it's complicated. It's complex. There's a lot of things to consider but it it's certainly an opportunity and and I don't expect to make it my full time job. I have I'm going to try to but I'm going in with no expectations because I have gone in with no expectations. This entire time and anything I could ever conceivably think of has been blown out of the water. I never thought I would get to the point where I am today. So who knows where I can go in? The future is really the approach. I'm taking up yet. You know before the podcast started you and I were talking about pursuing your dreams and how you should always go do that so give you your own advice. Go pursue your dreams happen. Yeah absolutely I mean. That's that's the goal right and ultimately if it doesn't work out I'm comfortable you know we the original plan before I started. The Observer was either to go work freelance in the theater industry or to go teach. English overseas With my partner and I'm comfortable doing both of those things right and so I'm excited for those things. And and if the observer doesn't work out it was all worth that I've had just an absolutely tremendous experience creating. I don't I haven't had a chance to say this yet but I do. WanNa throw it out there if you're thinking about creating a flash briefing. I highly highly encourage you to do it because for me it hasn't just been a business or a whatever you. WanNa call it you know. Fill in the word business and entrepreneurial thing it has been really a life changing experience on I get people reaching out to me on a frequent basis saying how I've touched them or how I've I've helped them through life. I the example. I always give us their dad. Who was out of touch with video games for a long time He didn't play video games anymore but his son played video games all the time and he was like okay. I I don't know video games very well. GonNa to listen to this show. And he started listening show every single day and then he left me a message saying hey. I'm closer with my son now because I've been listening to your show and it's like I got that message in my heart was breaking like that is what I'm doing this for now. That has been my inspiration to keep going through all of this and I'm getting messages like that frequently. And so even if this were to end tomorrow it would have all been worth it for that so anyway. I love that story. I love stories like that. That's really what keeps you going. I touching people so Adrian simple question that people want to hear the Gaming Observer. How do they do so short? Yeah if you WANNA find the links to everything that I'm doing you can go to via gaming observer DOT COM. You can also find me on all of the major voice platform so on Alexa. You can find the flash briefing on Google talk to the Gaming Observer and on bixby say hi bixby play the Gaming Observer vailable on all of those platforms. Yeah we'll put links to the gaming observer in the show notes and from my listeners enable the capsule Play the gaming observer it a people. WanNa keep in contact with you. I understand where you're going. Or where the gaming observer is going. What's the best way to do? So I'm I'm on twitter at gaming underscore observer. You can also find me on Lincoln Adrian. Simple or if you like. The website is currently down by my email is Adrian. Simple DOT COM Adrian. Thank you it's really been a pleasure talking to you about Short Casts. Wason gaming and I can feel really your passion for what you do your passion for Games and for sharing your views and news about gains with your listeners. Which was what has led to all your success. I really think is sharing mashing. You've accomplished incredible amount. He built the amazing work. Pursue those dreams and thank you very much. Oh my gosh well thank you so much for for having me on It's been great to see what is doing in this space. I'm really excited to see how things move forward with you guys and it really means a lot to me for to be on this podcast. So thank you. Well thank you Adrian. That's all folks till next time.

"bixby" Discussed on Bixby Developers Chat
"Allow this bixby. Welcome to the developers podcast. Here is your housing housing Roger. Hello bixby developer chat listeners. Last week the bixby developer team was at the project. Voice Conference in Chattanooga catalyse. It was really an amazing experience. The conference was basically A. Who's who of voice and we Samsung and vivid labs? Were there along with Amazon Alexa. Google Microsoft mercedes-benz some incredible smaller voice companies and some really innovative startups Well the conference. I had the pleasure of interviewing thirty. Three voice developers designers podcasters at all around voice. Curry's Bruce in today's episode. We're going to hear from the I. Sixteen people I interviewed next week will release a second set of interviews without further ado. Do let's go to the floor. Project Voice Conference. I'm with Martin Lens Fitzgerald Martin. Money tell us what you do so bill for over three years now. I'm a voice evangelist. So I helped companies find their way into this new channel. Maybe even a new medium and I do this in Amsterdam so most of Europe is where I work customers like Vodafone. KLM TALL POW all kinds of companies. That I talked to that I help inspire action. He gets simple skills skills or actions going or even help them scale. AWESOME UNWARE HAIR project voice What are you doing a project voice? What do you do you like will here? I am actually sleep tech talking to people about project silver which is my project that helps elderly people yeah get better life uplifting there live using voice technology and it's consorts you. Mike created together with Google in Holland as well as the local AARP and insurer and the government ban and what we found. I'll be sharing this research tomorrow. Is that over. Twenty one percent of the elderly had talked to the vice is already up and running and yeah basically it's a very promising medium medium for them so with the consortium and trying to get customers are basically trying to get organizations to create services for the elderly because Handy Handy. That's great you know. I M super bullish on the elderly invoice because it's not technology they need to learn just talk and and it just works and I think it's one of the. There's such an opportunity for the voice industry to get in and help Italy and have them lead a better life. I it's what I've found with snow already for a year and a half is that it's a flywheel effect I found platforms. They get more users at more of a positive a PR angle. It's not just light bulbs on and often buying flowers knows making people's lives better. There is so much impact their customer or the organizations get more customer service purpose than better and then the elderly whose lives get ab- lifted so and that together it creates like a magic potion if you will and we started now also in Denmark. I'm looking to start in Germany in the UK as well as in the US news. So that's my mission so you touched a bit with talking about your project and silver and elderly but where thirty one of the voice and what do you see it going in next year five years. Where would you like to see it so if I was younger? Now I would steady the anthropology collagen emerging tech. So how do you emerge a new channel like voice. This is my fourth new medium or fifth new medium. started out web did email we all did. Mobil did augmented reality. And now this and so where are we now. And what's going to happen. It's Daily. I wonder I ponder that so on one one hand I think are we still. I wonder are we at the gopher stage of see remember ads. Remember that this tree whip creates are are we at compuserve and AOL live at further was walled gardens which suites the platforms aren't or are we at the stage age. Where you had just Nokia blackberry but no iphone or android and I think we are before the iphone moment of voice and Actually Salihi standing in the sand or that? I think the approach that bixby house is one of the key next generation approaches that we need that is different than almost the APP model. which you find with Amazon with herbals? I'm really yeah following. Let's go on with gigs. Because I think that is very well. Thank you very much. Yeah we're trying to push the industry forward and you know we have very able and great competitors and I think it's all it's all just a rising tide for all going on right now. So Martin. People want to follow what you're doing project silver or yourself. How would they keep in contact with Zilmer with a z dot com where we will publish publish our research results next week? We'll be launching tomorrow here in formerly the next we could we Downloadable as a pdf and then if we want to know more about me use me in your company any any which way as a talk as it were jobs or helped me help. Create Services Lens Dash Fitzgerald Dot Com. Everything's they're awesome pleasure talking to you. Martin.
"bixby" Discussed on Bixby Developers Chat
"Of just voice in general. Where do you see the voice industry going now? When the next year the next five years where where do you see going? Where would you like to see it go? I think the the biggest this trend. I've kind of noticed I think is a lot of cases. Larger companies are taking voice More serious than they were before. When I first I started out there were you know not a lot of skills out there? People were Kinda like pooping the whole concept like. Oh it's not going to stay around and everything like that and and now it seems like all these companies are really getting interested in. How do we have our own power? We represented in this new platform. So in general I I feel like that trend is going to continue forward where there's going to be a lot more demand for this in the other thing is user. Confidence in voice is definitely going up to. I think people before I mean like me as a developer. I think it's even more so but like you could go to Google and you type in something and find results way faster than you could for voice but now that's really changing now effort asking a really simple question can usually get you just as good results just as fast and I think that that's going to be another trend. That's going to continue forward which leads into the security concerns where people are going to start hurting a lot more about their privacy their security is there information being used. It's I think it's going through kind of like that. Technological Life Cycle where as people get more used to using it. They become more reliant tawny they become more concerned about it and then cycles back into they become you know they use it more while. That's so well put because I think it's it's indicative of a technology becoming more mass market when there's greater concerns owners completely valid concerns there also oh indicative of Kinda mass you know the populists general accepting voice and using it and asking some tough questions that definitely should be asked and we is. The industry definitely need to have answers. And frankly in some cases bettering answers than we've we've currently
"bixby" Discussed on Bixby Developers Chat
"How did you get started developing for bixby. I will still with bixby. It was a completely different system. I really actually haven't even heard anything thing about it. My wife was always like an avid apple phone user and then I convinced her not to use apple phones finally and we ended up getting her Samsung Samsung. And then from there I kind of heard about it and was like invited to like Joined the speed premier developer program since I was already a skill developed before Alexa Sir. So I started with the like I said I pretty much that I really haven't done. Hardly anything with The exit on time basically focused on trying to build new things for bixby because the the interface design like behind. How you put things together is just so like friendly? Developers will thanks. We're definitely liked to To hear that on anything else you WANNA share about your experience with bixby and being from like you started started out with Alexa Development. And now you're doing more big Alexa Development. You want to share anything with the listeners about your experience with Vicky Well I started out with it. It was very different very kind of like much more rudimentary than like The complex interface model so it took took some getting used to how to actually like design the interactions. But I stuck with it and I would definitely recommend anybody who wants to really stick with it because it's incredibly the powerful how much you can do. I mean it's the biggest reason I really fell in love with it was I could do in an hour. What would take me a month to do with the Alexa Development and it's just getting through that initial hurdle of like understanding that? I didn't need to do all that extra to something really working. That was really cool. And that's why I said that's why I have a lot of fun just prototyping things because I can just find an API when a try out build something up in in a couple hours happened working. Intestinal that I can play around with it will. That's clearly music to our. Here's Ryan but you know. I sympathize with the kind of the learning challenge. Initially I know and I I could Tried to work with big speak. You know that really declared a programming model. Where Model I and code later was really quite different than anything I'd ever done so it was a little bit of Hump to get over but yeah I'd agree with you? Once you get over. That Hump could be related productive and fast to go build. Then try some things and see what works. And what doesn't work
