"Right right or even the sensors on you. You did some extra. Okay okay that's a that's number two. Hey dave what's short-term prediction. You have next year or two. I'll say invoice in hairballs right and voice in terrible space. What would something you think's gonna happen. It's gonna be interesting. I think that were. I'm actually probably the most concerning thing about my view. Is i think apple's still going to be a huge player in this space. I know that this is the most tired thing ever. But i do think that i think that we're going to see whether it be the next version of air pods or something i think is coming with theory and i think that could really lend itself to building for this whole intersection of voice plus herbals and so i think that's my short term production as i actually think we're closer than we think with there being something really big because again it's like apple clearly did not have much motivation for the home there the wearables king and so i think that the most if they are to get into the voice space in a meaningful way. I think it's gonna be through airports interesting interesting and obviously i worked for a big competitor. I will tell you every year. Sec i hope they hear something about sierra invoice and opening up and things in that because when apple market one illegit is is just. It's a reality of what it is an to. They tend to be they. Don't do a half ass job when they go into something they do it well and so this could be a big step so i i every. Scc i'm like really and then. I'm hoping we'll see now. Let's see because. I think it'll be really good for the industry. I'm turning into a broken clock at this point where i should be right. I just keep saying it but you know that's a future right. You keep on saying the same thing eventually right to claim victory on the year. You are right on my old tweets. What about longer term prediction. Five ten years out man. I don't know. I think that five ten years out. You're wearing bone conduction right now. Like your headphones..

"What it's like to actually do a podcast episode and doing the heavy lifting for them around the pre production in the post production. So that's the gist of it is just to kind of empower people. In like the world's that i come from to bring their knowledge in their wisdom and imparted on us and give them a sense of curious. Kind of what this whole things like and the hope is that people will take this and run with it and be like i'm gonna podcast also awesome. I didn't realize that it's so it's just a guest can go on and they have thirty minutes of sudden sixty whatever talk about wanna share it. But they don't know your as you said it's a lot more intimidating to think. Oh shoot i gotta do an episode every couple of weeks or a weekly and i got a tenant it daunting oh what am i gonna get my next guest. I have my doubts. Units ends up. Being is easier than i think. It's going to be but it's definitely daunting. So as we're kind of wrapping up. I would love to ask you one of my favorite questions. I hidden gem question okay. She share voice experience. Or a podcast or something. That you really enjoy the you. Don't think enough people know about what's a hidden jamea. Can i give a business idea. Oh perfect love okay. All right. i've actually never shared this. I've thought about it. But i think this is the perfect time this year old premier business idea of dave camp of it's gonna change the reason i'm telling you is because i actually hope somebody's listening. That can come and help me build this and again. it seems kind of trivial. But it's something that i think would be a really good use. Case is a basically a golf app. Okay so a voice assistant so when you're out playing golf there are lots of new watches that show you your distance to the whole okay. So my thought is if you have that and you have these voice assistant hearing aids being able to say alexa or bixby. What's my distance or being able to basically interface with one of these different golf apps. So that you could get kind of an analysis while you're playing you know basically here's how far you are to the whole. Here's the conditions of the green. Just helping you play again. Think about the patient demographic that whereas hearing a lot of people in florida play a lot of off. I think it could be a really powerful use case that could be really marketed toward this power. User group of voice assistant urinate users. So anybody that has the wherewithal to help me build this thing. I know the people in the hearing aid space that i could connect you to if you can help me to build this from the information that's gathered from there a lot of different apps out there that you they have like detailed information around each course each hole it's very granular so it's a matter of partying that information importing over into the voice assistance base rate idea. Not only is the demographic. But i think of i was thinking golf. I'm not much golf with few times. It's super social. You're with people so instead of your face being in a smartphone app maybe you gas may even share it..

"I sucked but you get to get a little bit better every single time and personally like i get a lot of joy out of that is the the incremental improvement knowing that each and every time i'm getting a little bit better and not beating myself up over it just knowing like it's kind of part of the game you know and ultimately you wind up like seventy seven episodes in i. I can't wait. Till i'm a hundred. And seventy seven episodes in where i get to look back and be like i sucked then to get better each and every time so i look at it more of that's i think a huge thing too is like be nice to yourself. Do not don't be so critical it takes a lot of time. I mean my podcast growth like in terms of my audiences it is just like a slow ticked upward. And it's something where it's like. It doesn't just happen overnight like it's definitely grown considerably. But it's not like. Unless i feel like i was like famous or i was like really prominent or something like that. I'm not sure you have the ability to do that. Said just just let it happen and just put your head down and go to work and let the process happened because the process is kind of the best part about it. You know be patient. And i actually and i know many people who they don't even look at their listener and how i do. Because i'm curious about episodes that resonated or less resonated lassen kind of growth right and i. This is all my goals for the year right. So there's a professional thing going on there. But no i think that's just be patient and let it happen and if you're genuine and be patient it'll grow fits and starts and starts and stops and things like that little grow and be happy right it if you're talking to a hundred people who love what you're talking about. That's a lot more fun. Talkative two thousand or thousands who are just kind of whatever exaggerate so don't worry about the size audience. It's kind of as the engaged. It sounds corny but it is kind of the field of dreams thing. It's like you know if you build it. They will come. People will seek you out. They'll find you if and that's where again it it's all rooted in. Are you actually passionate in this like. It's very obvious you can tell it's subtle but you can tell these things you can figure out like very quickly. Is this person genuinely interested in what they're talking about. And so i think that's that's a big part of it is just kinda like figuring out. Where what's your big thing that you're the care about that. You feel like you can go and do multiple of these and make it your own. So dave because you're not busy enough. I noticed you're just hunched just launch. A second podcast..

"It starts to become a giant narrative. You know things build on one another you get to you kind of understand that like yes. There's probably some listeners that are coming in. They're listening to that one specific episode. But you had a lot of people that are tuning in every single week. So you're building a relationship with these listeners. And you get the opportunity to shape. This conversation in an ongoing narrative storing more. Or less i mean. Is that how you felt too. Oh yeah absolutely. It's an ongoing different guests. But it's an ongoing narrative and in a story. You're telling my favorite meetings of the week of are any podcast interviews right. This is my. This'll be my favorite meeting all week. Because this is so fun luzenski just talking to someone and getting i was gonna say a A podcast a week. That's there's a lot of work like and this is the easy part. This we all know is worth the conversation anyone. i'm like. this is the fun easy part. It's the homework ahead of time. Editing getting it out things at that but work but it is a fabulous way to really expand your thinking and meet new people that it's almost i feel like i'm friends with every podcast gal. Stephen fuck never met him before right after they've been on my podcast right and it's just so the thing i always say i guess it's a secret or it's not a well kept secret by my title. I'm a business development person. The world of i actually. When i was first out of college. I did a little bit. Cold calling will never do that again. And what's cold calling right. You're trying to establish relationship. I will tell you. I've had more success through the podcast from a business standpoint because you're building personal relationships and it's just like you said it's you can build these relationships and then you know you actually feel like you're on a personal level with these people and it's So again i could go on and on and on. I've been doing it now for almost two years and i think legitimately do this for the rest of my life like i know that might sound like hyperbole but until something better comes along. It is the best way to grow a network people because every single week. I'm able to do something whether i'm on. Somebody's like this again. Thank you for having me on. Or i'm having somebody like you on. It gives you the opportunity to save. Now kinda know this person you know in a way that i'm not sure what else presents that opportunity other than. Maybe something where you're visiting that person in impersonator. And that's where i mentioned earlier. Where having the podcast during the pandemic it saved me because it allowed for me to continue to do my job and build up this network in meet people and figure out. Who's who the smartest person when it comes to this particular thing and i totally agree with you to where you said. This is the fun part. And i think that that's the joy for me. Is i really look at it. As how can i constantly get better and there's a lot of homework that's involved..

"Stigma about hearing aids and so one of the things i'm excited to hear. You say this is this people you need it in certain situations or like you said at certain frequencies right. I'll admit like when it's cloudy didn't on a loud restaurant. I don't hear the person talking to me as well as i used to write. And so i think this is super exciting and then it's detergent horse to okay man. Now i start using odd devices. I'm wearing all the time. Okay now concertgoers doing some cool ambien computing voice capabilities with them. So this is where this is where everything has always kind of been so fascinated me is that they really are kind of interconnected in a lot of different ways and i think they're all really mutually beneficial because okay so you think about this whole idea of okay. So you just mentioned the stigma. I've i i would almost say that. There's three big problems as it comes to treating hearing at scale. It's price it's stigma and it's basically access to the devices in the service and the solutions. And i could talk at length about all these but the stigma piece is really really interesting because again it goes to this whole idea of like okay so again. We're wearing airports in and around for a long time and things that look like them and what we're really getting to is. Now you have hearing aids. That actually are being built in. They look like ear buds. And so we're very close to this future where the lines are blurring big time where it's really hard to tell who's wearing white and my big hope is that because you're gonna have a lot of young people a lot of tech aficionados and a lot of people that are just like they have this kind of mild hearing loss and they want that here in argumentation certain settings. You're going to get to a point where it's going to be really hard to tell who's wearing what for what and so ultimately i think that translates to it's going to be like glasses where it's like. Are those designer glasses or those prescription lenses. I don't care and that's where it should ultimately get to is that we don't care and that's i think. A huge boon for hearing solution adoption is that i hope that big detractor just slowly becomes mitigated overtime. I love that. They if the form factor changes looks like air pods but they're really hearing aids or the to blend together right then. That stigma goes away. Let's grade alright. Dave i think you and i could talk for hours about this but i do want to switch gears..

"Basically like layering on little features they can do to kind of have this a rudimentary offering. So like they have been forming. Which basically takes the microphones and they position them in such a way. So that like you have this direction allen so when you're talking to somebody in it's one on one here it's going to actually kinda drown out gay background noise behind me. Background noise behind you. And it's going to hone in on her voice so that i'm really like only picking up the person when speaking with because a lot of people have like a very specific problem. Which is i have trouble hearing people in loud situation speech in noise. And so you know ultimately what we're looking at is it's not like air pods or any of these things are setting out to replace hearings. They're actually coming to enter in in cater to people that aren't ready for hearing aids but are ready to start treating they're hearing loss and that's what's really really exciting. I've been talking a lot about this on a podcast. It's like this whole idea of. I really feel strongly that were at the kind of impetus of like the beginning of this new era where it's a lot like what we were saying. That the hearing aids and having voice assistant activation it's like you by air pods pro and then you see a commercial and you're like i had no idea that that application existed and i go into my setting car-o-van then suddenly i'm like this is great. I haven't heard these sounds and years because again it's these pert loss that just slowly start to losing. Can't the birds anymore. You of forgot that you can't hear the birds and then you turn this nanya like gonna hear the birds chirping again. And so that makes you feel like okay. I definitely have a hearing loss and wanna treat this a little bit. So exciting to me is again. How does this kind of come full circle with voice for the reason it comes book circle as you now have a population that has kind of slowly been condition through air pods and all these other things where things in and around the years and then they're going to start to layer on these really compelling use cases to wear things in your ears for long periods of time because you have hearing augmentation whatever that might be and then suddenly we now have population swelling that is wearing it things in and around their ears perks periods of time and those are the ones that are really truly the candidates for this trojan horse. Way now these are people that have voice assistant literally on their person in their ear all day every day. And what can we build for them. That's how comes into. No fascinates makes so much sense struck me as i was thinking. We've all accepted vision. Loss right people glasses people get you. Go get new right. And that's just something that we expect. But there's this kind of chasm of hearing line intel gets really bad. You don't do anything..

"And i played with it and haven't really used it but it seems like there's something there right like it's like a a a junior hearing aid would put it. I'm curious what your thoughts are mouse. So okay so here's the thing. No my podcast is largely focussed around. Like i've said like kind of these different intersections of technology and so it's not just boys. I talk a lot about hearing health and what's happening in the hearing health space. Is this evolution in. It's really really exciting. Because if you think about hearing. Loss hearing loss is the giants spectrum. It's not like everybody like when you lose your hearing. It's not like a knob gets turned down. It's very very specific to the type of hearing loss. We all have. What is you best. Think of it. An analogous to almost like a fingerprint. Some of these technology companies are calling them like your ear. Pray in your ear. Id and so what we're seeing. Is that historically really. It's been a one size. Fits all type thing. Where the only option that you had as you're hearing started to depreciate was you could go get a hearing. There's another subset of devices called personal on the fires of not going to get into them. 'cause they're just not great but what's happened. Is you know so hearing aids are notoriously expensive. They're not covered by insurance and so through a number of reasons..

"Because it's probably on on you as much or more than anything else and and a bike. It's here too right. So it's something where i think that when i i was looking at this space i was skeptical of a number of things and but i still wanted to make sure like it because the promise of it you know whether it's the movie her or whatever it might be. I just thought that this these two things make so much sense in my mind. And i've kind of already gone through. Why but i think that this idea of being able to you know you kind of saw like with the alexa live. A lot of it was around starting to introduce social features. So again the way i look at things is like the formative pieces are starting to kind of fall into place for a really interesting scenario to kind of unfold here where you start to kind of have something that if the voice assistant is the mediator between users. I think that can get really really interesting. And you see what's happening with bluetooth the next generation of bluetooth they see this coming to. I've had the good fortune to get to know nick hein who is the. He's the actual analyst that works for the bluetooth special interest group who coined the term curable. So this guy's really really knowledgeable about this space. And he is laser laser focused on the voice spaces. Well because he's thinking the same thing like the way that they're building out. The next generation of bluetooth is very much designed around this idea that you're gonna be kind of interacting with your voice assistant all day every day. You know the way that like it won't stop media for example you won't have to have it. It will more probably like tune it down. Allow you to issue a command. A lot of you know being able to interface in with other users with your sound. I just think that it's going to. I think like this whole voice. Space is really interesting to me because for a few reasons one. It definitely feels like it's following the gartner hype cycle. And i think we've been in the trough of disillusionment and i think we're about to come into the peak peak of enlightenment is what i think it's called And so i think that part of it is. It's like wearables where you know. Wearables started out with these extreme. You know sort of expectations and stuff. But they were really like fitbit and all that kind of these glorified pedometers they were step track counters and all this stuff and they still actually managed to gain decent proliferation and then incomes apple..

"And so now you're gonna just they're everywhere and so we've been so conditioned by apple largely but its cascading into lots of different brands. Lots of form factors too. But it's that's something that i think is kind of again flying under the radar. A little bit is you know. And it's something that really only like an apple or samsung or google can do is introduce these giant behavioral shifts. If you look at like a are for example like Augmented reality is probably going to become really legitimate. But i think that people are underestimating the behavioral side the actual the psychology of actually. Wear these things. And i will say that like air pods and in wearing things in around your ears for extended periods of time. We kind of take that for granted. Now that was like a herculean effort in order to do that because it was not a thing before. Usually you would wear headphones wired headphones or you have bluetooth headphones. But they were kind of single use and this coincides with the huge meteoric rise in streaming. And the stuff that you now can do with those things like why you even would wear those in the first place but that.

"And it's like lots of different things and he created this two and a half minute video for me so that i can present it in. It's awesome and send a text message. Play this song. What song is this. It's navigate me here. Do these things so i've always thought okay. So if you think of you can use the jobs to be done. Framework like the clayton. Kershaw thing where you look at your phone as like every day. You're going into your phone. I mean i think the average is like eighty to one hundred times. I'm not sure where you fall on that spectrum. But you know i'm probably there unfortunately and but you think about you know really intentionally like why did i just go into my phone and a lot of the time it's for one very specific thing you know might be for a particular application and this is where i've always thought like the sweet spot is for voice assistance is. It's not like it's going to happen overnight. I think it's more of picking things off one by one so maybe over the course of time you start to get familiar with like you said your father in law where it's checking scores. Start to kind of condition yourself or sending text messages or you know checking the weather whatever it might be and so. I just think that we're this is where the opportunity lies in. This is that. That's why i'm saying like older adults. Actually i think are the most prone to move as much over as possible right now granted. There's obviously things that your phone can do that. You just don't have like in apples to apples. Comparison like social media a lot of the downtime on your phone. All those things. And i'm not really going to say that like the phones going away anytime soon but i think that. What's what's exciting. The prospect is just kind of reducing the amount of time on your phone and getting that time back being a little bit more heads up and this is where i think like the the hearing aid demographic might actually be the best place.

"So the training wheel effect starting them off and helping them to understand those really simple basic use cases but graduating into more sophisticated levels. And this is where. I would really challenge this whole status. Quo that this is a generation. That's not capable of doing. I actually really disagree with that. I think that they're more than capable of understanding how to do this. And i think that they're really open to it. Because again you're taking a group that has been so marginalized by technology forever and you're bringing them off the sidelines and you're actually giving them something that's conducive to them and i think that's really really powerful. That's so powerful. It's because the interface is a human way of interfacing. Unlike any other human computer interface. I'd to learn to type of white learn to do interface with that and i learned to do it on the learn to do that. Are you and we got used to it. My kids are even better out than i am right. I call them. they're teenagers. I call them the touch generation. And i call the real young kids i think. The voice generation eighty mcmahon calls in gen v v. I love that i love that. But you're right about so. There's a whole generation really didn't grow up with technology and they're pretty intimidate. I'm on tech support for my in laws. So and see goes on. Yeah they see goes on. Sundays is frustrating. But then i get it. I remember getting a voices just got a little alexa puck from mine laws. My wife's parents and they love it. And like so my father-in-law he's a tech phobic right. He doesn't like it. And this is the guy who wouldn't update his iphone for because they changed the interface on. He's like i'm never update net thing straight like six agents back but he's like. Oh this is cool. I can get the giants and forty niners scores right. So that was the cool thing i to him and then you see him using it more and more and then what real. I'll tell you that really struck me about the older generation. I have an aunt who is quite getting up there. And she's legally blind. And i went and visited lives in florida and i went to visit are actually just before the pandemic and i mean she should be an apple commercial. About have you seri-. She was doing things. As i didn't even know syria could do after the staff she was doing. She was legally blind so she would use it to communicate make calls set reminders. Get information nap Literally her day to day kind of living was heavily influenced by. I'd never seen anything like that. And it was just blew me away and this is really the generation that mamie has the greatest opportunity to benefit from voice and yet in the voice industry. Why don't like to talk. We don't talk that much about it. Probably because there's not a lot of people that generation in the voice industry must are retired or they're not in the tech industry. But yeah i'm totally with you. And so that makes a ton of sense and they're hearing challenges so they get hearing aids boom. It's in your ear. Okay.

"Still i really. It's compelling in regards. But i just remember having a distinct feeling of remember the first iphone that i was exposed to in a lot of them kinda of it and then comparing apples to apples to this in terms of like first generation in thinking to myself that this was better than i was anticipating. Dave you were. You started talking about hearing aids invoice and there's some marriage happening there. Tell me more about what you're thinking about hearing aids and voice and what the opportunities are either. Okay so i would say the first thing to really understand is the patient demographic right and this is kind of obvious is who wears hearing aids old people. That's what people will say. But i i would say that like the most interesting thing. One of the most like visceral experiences. I had in this whole space was the second alexa conference so the first time that it was. I think it was still alexa conference. It was twenty nineteen and davis park. Was there from front porch. Which is a retirement facility. That's along the west coast and they had just been trialing this pilot of pudding alexa devices in their residents homes and the feedback of it was in essence really positive and the inevitable testimonials that he had a sort of outlined in this white paper and you can still find it online. If you just search like front porch. Alexa pilot was a whole lot of these older adults that were aging in place or living in these retirement facilities and they were saying things like it makes me feel empowered. That makes me feel like. I have this new ability to communicate with my technology and that was so visceral for me because in the world of hearing aids were we. We have this like really deep understanding that this is a marginalized group by and large like one of the biggest concerns with bluetooth. Urinate was the fact that their bluetooth and that would cause so many technical issues. And i think this misrepresentation though that is this is a demographic of people that are not savvy enough to navigate technology. And so i took these two kind of congruent or these disparate thoughts. And i started to think about them in in conjunction and what i started to think was. I think maybe what's going on isn't that this is a group that's necessarily not capable of interfacing with technology. I think the interfaces that were presenting with them with are just inherently bad. So you think about the web. Right like not the easiest thing to navigate unless you're sort of trained on it like a native because i grew up. I'm born in eighty nine so i'm a millennial. I grew up with technology by march. Like i had a desktop computer in my home and then i was conditioned into the aim era a and and then facebook and mobile in everything beyond and every person that is younger than me is even more savvy right so i think that most people get this the few generations above me like maybe not quite as native but still have a pretty good sense because of the way that they were forced into it through work or whatever so you have these older adults that were never exposed to the web by marge and then we present him with okay. Here's this like mass market item. Which is your smartphone. Well what are the limitations there. The you have this small piece of glass that you have to tap on okay. So if you're seventy plus eighty plus chances. Are you have a lot of age related issues. Your sites deteriorated. You've got dexterity issues. Got mobility issues. it's just not a great interface..

"These different places lo and behold bet did not pan out but what we realized that there was sort of a A little bit of a gap in the market with the on the distributor side. and so. that's how they kind of the genesis of the whole oaktree story was they realized okay. There's a real niche here that we can go after in slowly but surely we became the biggest supplier over the course of thirty years to this industry and so i've always like through moses and involved in this area like it's almost been a a sixth family member where it's like. We have the five of us plus oak tree. And you know so. It's always president dinner. Talk and stuff like that. So i was always really really familiar with this industry and so i went off after i graduated college in two thousand twelve. I moved up to chicago. I've always had this deep passion for technology so i was selling software in chicago. Did that for five years. And then ultimately. I decided i wanted to move home and coming before then. I wanted to join oaktree today. Like i said we're second generation. My parents had both retired and in the process of transitioning to my brother..

"When you're in the group of the first voice people that ever met which was at the which was the alexa conference now project voice. The one that was. I think it was in two thousand eighteen when it was in chattanooga public library so i have like this deep soft spot for all the people i met there because they really are what i think of as the nexus of this whole voice community. It's where it felt like the nucleus so anyway. It's it's great to be here like you said. I am the director of business development at oak tree products so quick back on an oak tree and all kind of lead into how i got into voice so ultra products is a distributor of clinical supplies to the hearing health professional. So you think of hearing. Health professionals being audiologist. Ent doctors so the primary solution that professional prescribes to their patients typically hearing aids. And so when i came into the fold here at oak tree back in two thousand sixteen full time. One of the things that was happening was that all of the hearing aids that were entering into the market where bluetooth enabled. And so what was really interesting to me was to think okay. So now you have. These sort of internet connected hearing aids that are capable of all types of new use cases and i started to go down a rabbit all and i was exposed to the whole voice world one way or another. I think it was either. Bradley met rocker brechin seller brian. Rambling guys were tweeting. I was real active on twitter. And it kind of started to buy into this idea of like. This is really interesting in my whole thought. All along was okay. They start with smart speakers as the the home. That's how i've thought of him and eventually those voices assistance wouldn't it be great if they migrated to my world and they were kind of like existing and hearing aids as modality and so. That's why i started to come around was to understand like the legitimacy of this is first of all from a from a underlying technology standpoint. What's the state of these things. So really kind of wrapping my head around that and understanding the feasibility of could. This actually happen where one day. We have hearing aids that more or less house alexa bixby google assistant. Siri all these different things. And so that's how. I came to kind of like make myself known in this space. Was i came from this background of hearing health. And that's obviously it's sort of coincided with the emergence of air pods and some airports took off and i've always had this passion of emerging technology. So like really kind of situated myself into this intersection of herbals hearing aids that form factor of this on the go modality combined with this new exciting use case for them which is voice youth voice user interface voice assistance in this ability to kind of like interface with your technology on the go through in the year.

The Marriage of Voice and Wearables with Dave Kemp of Future Ear

"I wrote a post two years ago about this called nurse Siri You could think of it. As health coach Siri or nutritionist theory. you know so. It's this idea where you're actually getting the voice assistant that provides you with actionable insight into that data because collecting all state is one thing but making sense of the data is sort of the the more important piece of this and. I think that that's where it gets really exciting. Is this idea that you know if it's nursery? What it could be doing is it's you know it's constantly monitoring this in. Its using that longitudinal data set to serve as a benchmark for you because it knows over the course of five years. This is what normal looks like. And when it detects abnormal in your heart rate in your blood pressure in your glucose and all of the different types of metrics that are slowly being able to be captured by these types of sensors Then you can start to get these. Really interesting actionable insights. Hey David your heart rate's been off for the past week. Let's get you into a doctor. You can imagine this being applied to your your diet to like you could have this Connected to the types of APPS that might be used to collect this In again using the voice assistant scenario where you could envision this idea where you're like okay so for breakfast a too hard boiled eggs for lunch a Turkey Sandwich And so you're you're actually using the voice assistant to log all of your nutritional information and so what's exciting to me about all this is it's a new type of data set that. I think it will be really interesting to see how this gets integrated into the broader. Like you know like electronic health record data set as well so that we just have a you know this i. I can just foresee the scenario where you go into the doctor and the doctor. You know you've already basically conveyed all this through voices which is probably communicating with doctors. Voices then so that he has this. He has this data set in front of him. He has like all of these actual things so that it's not just like me just sort of you know. Shoot from the HIP hop. I haven't really been feeling not good and it's you know he doesn't have a lot or she doesn't have a lot to work off of now. They have like this really coherent type of information sitting right in front of him. So that's the gist of what I talked about. In as I went through I talked about how this will. It really be impactful for the end user for caregivers for all different types of stakeholders in this whole thing. Amazing that it's such a great summary of what you talked about the idea of the wearables and then I I love that sort of leering. The voice on top of it as the new interfaces new operating systems and talking about it or that sort of thing and then becoming hands-free with all of this and Oh it's so good. So that's fantastic. That's chapter six in the book voice and wearables by David Camp Amazing I've say thank you to you for for the effort. The time that you put into writing that it's such a wonderful A part of the book and Really really important part so Yeah I just say publicly. Thank you for thank you for doing that. Yeah absolutely Terry. It was a really cool experience like I said You know it's one of these things where I think we're kind of at the leading edge of it. But what excites me? The most is that it's really a young technology voice. Technology is and I really am bullish on this idea. That wearables will though serve two main purposes Actually they're going to serve a lot of different purposes but in this context are gonna serve two main purposes. They're going to be the data collectors and I understand that there might be ethical questions that come from this. Privacy questions concerns So a lot of these things are going to have to be worked through. I'm not just trying to say this is going to happen and But I think they'll be data collectors and then I think that they'll be the home in which the voice assistant resides whether it be in our here on our wrist and I think that's a cool idea because again it's this idea of you know think we tend to or for some people they tend to think of. Alec says like this way to check the weather or You know way to play music but we know I think a lot of us in the voice industry know that there's such a bigger vision here it's truly like a new computing platform and so It these things really excited me and I think that they're going to really work in tandem well together so two areas that I would definitely recommend everybody to keep an eye on In terms of how they work together. That's amazing and that's a great segue so for people to keep an eye on what is happening in this field. What are some resources that you could suggest an? Of course I want you to highlight your own. Yeah no I would definitely say you know with my blog future. Ear Dot Co My podcast to a future ear radio. Podcast you know. I think there's I I try to bring on a wide variety of people that are at this intersection. You know whether it be audiologist or people in the voice side people on the wearable side So I've had a lot of experts on that I give away better understanding of the complexities here and I think. What's exciting is that a lot of people are coming at this from different directions. And they're bringing their own style of expertise to the table. And I just think that they're you know what's given me so much assurance that this is that there's really exciting things on the horizon Is How intelligent the people are that I've met in how well thought out this all is you can tell that there are people that. I've talked to on my podcast. That have been thinking about this for twenty years. And they've been at this for their whole career So definitely check out future ear and An all the different types of people that I brought

"Devices to the hearing healthcare professional. So we service that medical professional really anybody that fits hearing AIDS And so I also have a blog. That has now Formed into a podcast as well future ear. My podcast is the the future ear radio PODCASTS. And really what I'm trying to do is cover the intersection of Curable technology stemming from my background in hearing AIDS which are like The preeminent curable And Voice Technology. So I I you know I do too podcast week where I bring on people from the world of audiology the world of the world of voice technology and sort of just have this guy. Tried to create a cohesive narrative around this budding intersection. That I just find to be absolutely fascinating. That's amazing end I've listened to your podcast and it's fantastic. I think you're a great interviewer actually have said that you before. So I think thank you. Questions are really great and And you're in your prolific content producer as well now because you're doing it twice. That's I know that takes that takes a lot of a lot of consistency effort. So good for you. Let's talk a little bit about the intersection here of here. Both in voice technology. We'll get into the exciting news that we have the book in just a moment but I love to get your take on. How did you first see that interaction with voice technology? And what's the what's the origin? Story there sure So the very first time I like started coming around the voice technology You know like world was the the Alexa Conference back when it was called the Alexa conference very proud that I can say that I was one of the Og Alexa Conference people back when it was in Chattanooga Public Library It's so funny. It's like when we were at project voice this year which which has been reprinted in to see many familiar faces. And it's just so cool to think back on this small group inside the Public Library and it just keeps growing and growing and growing and The reason I was there was because I started to really research What was going to happen Due to the fact that hearing aids were all becoming Bluetooth enabled so back around. Twenty fifteen twenty sixteen there this massive shift In terms of the type of hearing aids that were coming to market Everything was Bluetooth enabled and because of that I started thinking. Well this is a really big deal because then you basically unlocked the whole smartphone economy the economy and all that but I kept thinking. What else are you gonna be able to do with this and Like so many people you know I always find it interesting like who was the person that really got you interested in this and a lot of people would say Gary Banner Chuck for me. It was Brian Romilly. I came across him on twitter. I just Kinda got into a rabbit hole. Read his stuff and I was like. This is a really really interesting premise. In the way that I thought about it was okay. So if this You know the way that he describes it as the sort of paradigm shift into the way in which we interact with technology. Every you know ten to twelve years you have sort of this new interface that emerges And this idea of voice made a lot of sense to me because you know it's this idea of simplifying everything back to the basics and being able to have a four year olds communicate with this type of technology or ninety five girls and that to me was like the Big Aha moment so what I started think was okay. Well if this is going to be a thing in smart speakers continued to proliferate and people continue to increasingly depend on them for more and more things I thought that what would it be likely that they would then want that type of functionality on their person and so I said well. What better of a home Then these new Bluetooth connected hearing AIDS that you're wearing all day every day Not to mention sort of the consumer side that was just starting to take shape largely being ushered in by air products. And so. That's how I got into this whole thing was just this notion in this idea that I thought it was entirely possible that the evolution of The way in which we interact with our smartphones would be unbundled to the more like peripheral Peripheral wearable devices In having voice as you know not only the user interface also the voice assistant serving as the actual operating system. Yeah that's great and and it's clear You know hearing you speak in following your work that you're now one of the leaders in this area of technology and here ables and it's such a historic. It just makes sense to me. You know an intuitively that with with speaking. There's listening as well and part of the part of the oral type of communication so I think that's really exciting because of that You know it's. It's really wonderful that we've had the opportunity to work together on this special project on the voice technology in Healthcare Book and You are one of the chapter authors. And I'd love for you to share with us a little bit about The process and of course you know little bit of information in terms of what did you write about. What did you learn out of it and your your thoughts on on that whole that whole deal? Yeah for sure and first of all I wanNA thank. You WanNa thank the whole group Harry Papua's and David Metcalfe and everybody else I. This is just an amazing opportunity in so regarding the process. What's interesting is at the time when you approach me about this. I had been writing what I called the daily updates so I was midway through. I'd probably written about seventy five eighty of these so I had actually got into the habit of writing daily and I think that it was good timing because I was like I felt as if I was kind of honing his craft of writing and being pretty religious about it. And so when you presented me with this idea of like can you write a ten thousand word chapter on You? Know Kinda like everything that you're passionate about wearables. Voice Technology in the Medical Setting. Rice said that sounds like a challenge. In so I'll be perfectly honest. I had a good idea in my head of of the outline. I sent you the outline but when push came to shove Like so many other people you know something. That's kind of daunting like that. I kind of procrastinated and when I finally did is one day. I can't remember. I think it was like a Sunday. I just like went into my room. Close my door in a got into like this Into this almost like trans. Yeah exactly and I just cranked it out. I actually wrote it in one day while I obviously edited it afterwards but I remember I would. I was writing And I told my girlfriend that I was going to be doing this. I was like I'M GONNA go. I'm GONNA just knock out ten thousand words and we'll see if I can do this. I think I can do it. I read about a thousand words every day. So it's just like basically writing ten types of articles that are right but I gotta do it and so I did it and I just went in there and I was texting updates from like six thousand seven thousand so it was. It was actually pretty a pretty cool process and it was a pretty cool thing for me to like. Be Able to tell myself like you can do this So as a writer because I have journalism background. This was one of the this was like for me. Like if I was a mountain climber like this was the highest peak that I've climbed yet so I really appreciate the opportunity of even getting the chance to do this and the challenge of Of doing it and So that was sort of the process of of how I how this thing came to life and then after I wrote it I went back through. I mean there was it was kind of messy so I had a really clean it up in. You know rearrange it a little bit but But that's how I did amazing amazing. That's a really nice. I love your story about how you know that. So that's really cool. So let's talk about the content. So how did you tackle what you're gonNA write about in? What what what's in the chapter? What can people expect to read when they pick it up so I was actually reading it before this conversation I read it again and I like. How elated out because what? I did was It's more or less like five parts and what I did is I sort of led from all the way like on the technical side of the technology like how this is even becoming enable As it goes through it sort of progressively starts to get more personal to like the end user. And and so for me like I in as I've been talking with more and more experts in various fields pertaining to all this Basically what's happening is that you're having a consumer grade devices. That are being her that that have the type of technology that essentially Legitimize them as medical grade. Where vices so you take the Apple. Watch for example you take some of these different hearing aids for example these are particularly Apple Watch. These are mass market devices That have you know if if we go to like the Apple. Watch series for this. Has like an eeg monitor in it. And so what excites me about all this? What I wrote about was that One of the biggest applications. And there's going to be a number of applications In a number of different environments where this place but with the one. I really focused on was Sort of the every day person that could more or less build. A Longitudinal Data Health. Our health data set essentially as longitudinal health. Data set. Okay so what I mean by. That is that you would know this. Well you know today if I want to go and if I'm not wearing any sort of wearable or anything I want you know and I wanNA know like where I stand with my heart rate I'm only were my blood pressure. I'm only going to be capturing that in the Times where I'm in that actual medical setting At the physicians officer wetter and I have the blood cuff on it. And they're measuring my blood pressure So I'm only Ki. I've only really jotting that. On the plot of data you know like once or twice a year and so what fascinates me about The wearable sides of this is that particularly on the data collection side. We're going from a very sporadic low populated data set. You know once or twice a year to These types of wearables that were wearing on our bodies that can be collecting in in in capturing that data on the minute on the hour. Three hundred sixty five days a year and so for me. What that means is that we're going to have a whole lot more of these broad much more robust sets gay so I talked a lot about this and what I talked about was the actual types of the methodology in which these devices work so like how they're capturing this and the reason. I did that like I talked a lot about. Ppg sensors right so. These are the optical based sensors that are increasingly being placed into different wearable devices. So like the underside of an apple. Watch they're now small enough to be embedded as of about a year and a half ago there now swollen up to be embedded into a receiver in the canal hearing aid You know it's the most popular type of hearing aid. But it's also the spa type of wearable device. So because these types of sensors are being widely embedded They're able to capture a lot of this data. But what's really interesting about these? Sensors is they're not really necessarily capturing new things the way that we're gleaning. New Insights is the machine learning algorithms. That are being layered on top of this so I talked about. You know basically you capture all this data and then you gotta figure out. What am I looking at right? And so one of the ways that this is taking shape is that the machine learning is going in. It's able to detect patterns and again so we're building toward. I think is this idea where I'm going to be wearing an apple. Watch for the next five years. You know whatever and so I have this robust data set and over time as we're seeing now you're starting to be able to monitor things like blood pressure. There's not new data that's being captured. But it's the machine learning algorithms that are now able to do pattern recognition to detect. Oh okay so we can now accurately measure someone's blood pressure and this is going to be the case with tons and tons of different metrics. So that sort of like the inherent technology that enables this whole thing is is really sort of at its onset and it's exciting because we're seeing being proliferated widened far. That's why I'm so fascinated by apple's wearables. Because I think this will a think air pods will follow suit with this. I know that a lot of the different hearing aids that are on the market are increasingly being outfit with these. So that's what's so exciting about me from the data collection standpoint then from there what I started to talk about was how do we layer voice on top of this And so this piece is where I'm really fascinated by okay so again. It's this idea that were capturing lots and lots of data were establishing these longitude data sets Then I think the big opportunity for Voice..

Voice Technology in Healthcare Book Launch

"The book first of all is divided into four main sections. I should also mention if you want to get access to the book or get more about it. You can always go to voice. I health dot com slash book. And there I've got lots of about it. That's also where you'll be able to access Links to order the book if you decide to do so and so on so again we have designed the book to really be made up of four main sections and in doing so we wanted to think about the different main areas that would make sense really to have this type of format and section one is made up of four different chapters It is an introduction to voice technology so these chapters really form the fundamental the basis for some underlying key concepts that really are relevant to the rest of the book and so yes these introduce some of the key concepts of voice technology in healthcare. Now if we dive into that section. I can tell you a little bit about the chapters and the people that are contributing in these chapters. The first chapter. I'm I'm very honored to say was written by myself. And it really looks at an overview of voice. Why is voice such an important Concept now when it comes to healthcare technology why I feel this is going to completely transform healthcare. Why believe that voice is actually the next operating system the video s and get into different types of communication and then I lay the groundwork for different use cases which of course are explored in more detail throughout the rest of the book the second chapter is by Atlanta ear. You may have heard her speak if you've gone to the voice of Healthcare Summit over the past couple of years. She was a keynote speaker there a few years ago and she is truly one of the World foremost experts on design voice. User interface design. And how it applies to healthcare and we put this early in the book because we really wanted to keep this in mind for all the readers when they are looking at some ideas and how best to design voice applications because the user interface design is so critical and so Atlanta's chapter is here at the The outside of the book as well the next chapter which we feel also is critical to designing good a voice experience. Healthcare is one by Audrey are beanie. She is the CEO and founder of audio brain and her chapter is entitled the Science Behind. Sonic branding how audio can create better patient caregiver and healthcare provider outcomes. And I'm really pleased to actually have a clip from you're you're just describing a little bit about her chapter so here is Audrey are beanie. Hi I'm Maury are beanie. I'm the founder. Ceo and executive producer of audio brain. And I'm honored to be a chapter contributed to voice technology and healthcare. This is an amazing book for anybody. Who's interested in health and wellness from every aspect? I specialize in sonic branding at my firm audio brain and one of our passions is and we advocate for the use of music and sound to promote health and wellbeing in this chapter. I discussed my twenty five years of experience in working in the healthcare industry. We talk about how the brain processes music and Sadam why. It's the perfect tool for communicating and helping to heal and promote wellness with new technologies emerging. Sound is even more important than it ever was and really has a strong influence on patient outcomes. I discussed some of the projects that we've worked on and the history of the industry and where it's headed in the future. I hope you enjoy the chapter and hope you enjoy all the other amazing authors that are in this book please go out and purchase voice technology in healthcare and you can find it at voice. I health dot com photos slash book. Thank you so much. We look forward to seeing you at hymns and the release of the book on March tenth. Thank you very much to audrey for those comments fantastic The next chapter is a really critical one as well that we thought fit really well at the outset of the book. And that of course is when we talk about voice. We also need to talk about privacy insecurity and so in this case we have nature lore From orbiter who wrote a chapter called secure voice in it is It's a great one It's all I can say. Really really critical information there. The second part of the book is another seven chapters and this is looking at voice technology and the patient experience and so here we have quite a few authors that have had experience with creating these voice applications and how seeing how it impacts patients some of these chapters include chapter five automated virtual caregiving using voice for services proactive personalized holistic. Twenty four seven and affordable. This is by Stuart Patterson from lifeblood then we have a really interesting chapter by Dave Kemp on voice and wearables and that and how that's going to affect the the Patient then we have another fascinating chapter by Rupa Patel. This is on synthetic voices for healthcare applications. Rupel is doing some amazing work looking at how you can create voices for for brands but also in the medical field. How can you create a voice for somebody that may be losing their voice? It's really really powerful. The next two chapters are edited versions of podcasts interviews. That took place here on this podcast voice I health we wanted to incorporate some of these interviews into the book as well touring to bring a real personal aspect to the To the narratives that you are reading and so as I said we have two chapters here coming up next Chapter Eight is voice. I health interview a diabetes. Care plans with an wiler. She actually won an award for her diabetes Alexa Skill and then chapter nine is entitled Voice I health interview Alexis skills for pediatrics. And we have Devon Nadar Speaking about some of her experiences with creating some skills specifically for pedes then we have a very interesting chapter by Robin Christoffersen. And it's called the rapid rise of voice technology and it's awesome power to empower. This is all about accessibility and Wonderful wonderful addition. And I do have a short clip here from Robin. Speaking about his chapter. So here is a Robin Christoffersen. My name is Robyn Christopherson. I'm head of digital inclusion at UK technology and disability charity ability net. I wrote chapter about how the Echo and voice first technologies more. Broadly represent a fantastic opportunity for people with disabilities. I've been lucky enough to be working in this area of technology and disability for the last twenty five years and health is incredibly important so read the chapter and learn about how voice first technologies are being used in so many different ways to help people live more productive healthier happier. Mo fulfilling lies. That's wonderful. And I love those comments from Robin so you can get a little taste of what that chapter is all about The next chapter is chapter eleven. And it's entitled an overview of Voice Technology and healthcare and is really by a team of authors from a Macadamia Technologies And they have been real leaders in the voice for space as well. So it's a it's wonderful to have them part of the book. The third section is next and this third section is called voice technology and the provider experience. Now go from you're describing. What the patient will experience were is experiencing with voice technology. And now we tackle what be provider is experience is experiencing and the first chapter is chapter twelve in this section and it's Mayo Clinic. Patient centered innovation driven. And this is written by a team at Mayo Clinic including a Doctor San Pruthi. Who's one of the cover authors of the book so Again a very very well written and excellent chapter chapter thirteen we get to another a voice L. Interview Voice Technology for behavioral changes. And in this chapter I speak with Dr Mattson Boesky. Who was on the PODCAST? Awhile back and he talks about his experiences about how we can use voice technology to really influence positive behavioral changes and hopefully this results in positive health outcomes. Now the next chapter chapter fourteen is called the laws of voice. This is critical to us in the healthcare. Space looking at implementing. Voice Technologies because. This is such an early early industry when it comes to voice technology healthcare that there are a lot of questions right now and we have to lawyers heather dealer and Bianca Phillips who we are very fortunate to have as a contributor to the book who outlined some of the questions. Some of the concerns in this regard and Bianca has Been Gracious enough to provide us with a clip for her as well alenquer chapter so here is Bianca Phillips Phillips I'm a lawyer with research expertise in medical law and digital helpful and they coordinate at Elektra of legal process methods and institutions in the. Jd Program will try blow school. I'm one of the contributing authors alongside co off a headache SLA. Us Attorney specializing in digital at life. And then what happens? The title of our chapter is the laws of voice as we enter this new frontier of waste best health lawyers and lawmakers will seek your expertise on the role of voice technologies in society in order to cheat. They understand the legal environment and the laws of voice. Now chapter rate is presented with nine hypothetical scenarios. We've uses a voice. Technologies in pre and post operative cat pediatrics genetic testing into health impediment health tracking. We then discuss some of the lake will considerations and legal contracts relevant to h scenario the chapter then tends to you by asking a range of questions and presenting.

How Voice is Helping Develop Ambient Awareness in Hearables

"So Andy Ambien awareness term. People may not be familiar. You're with because it's not a commonly used term. Could you talk about that. In the context of a hearing aid active noise cancellation and Just like any any standard type of heads had sat or here are Ear Buds that you might listen to music too. Sure sure would be glad to The the traditional ear buds you know typically what block out the outside sounds and that's great for listening to music and being on the airplane you want that full fidelity music so you don't want outside sounds impeding on your music listening experience on the other hand when you're on the street you want to be able to hear what's going on around you and when you're consuming audio you really want a mixed reality experience. You don't want one or word of the other and so the idea of ambient awareness as if I have an ear phone that seals my ears where I can get the best noise canceling. I also want to be able to hear the outside solid so I don't get hit by a car and therefore the device should be able to mix real zoned versus your playback sound for example my hearing aids do that I can. I can take out the APP and I run a slider. How loud is the the actual outside silence playing in my ear versus hull? Loud is the music or podcasts. I'm listening to which is really really very useful. If I'm walking for example to someplace where on getting a Google after actions I can have the walking instructions playing in my ear but at the same time I can hear everything I can talk to people and so on that that sort of natural ability to listen ambient Louis while you're also getting you know information play do through your ear. Almost is really critical to an all-day device. And it's also a key advantage over Visual when you're you know out and about on foot it's not really convenient to look at your phone for your map instructions as not really convenient to be typing on your fallen sending taxed when you know you're walking especially in a busy urban area but all of those things you can do through voice today with your phone in your pocket and so that really is what ambient awareness is all about. I've never unaware of my surroundings while I'm consuming audio or interacting with my voice assisted and it's getting increasingly sophisticated. For example. Sony has a device that will actually discern what you're doing if I'm sitting still little put in more noise cancellation to make it quieter if I start walking walking. It'll open up the ambient awareness so I can hear my surroundings so you start to get into these intelligent modes that really may Goldie where US something valuable and

Hearables Could Drive Voice Assistant Usage

"Andy why does she introduce yourself to the audience. That's that's quite an intro. Thanks thanks I really appreciate being on the podcast for the first time. I'm the responsible for marketing and business development for the hearing Health Tech Division at Knowles and actually my responsibility ons ability is everything but regulated hearing aids and I came into the voice space. Really by a convergence of a couple of different events I was involved in the beginning in all of their early development. For example I worked with froggy when they were a startup trying to create the first true in ear. Herbal computer also doppler oppler who worked their way into hearing an ans- mint and new hero. Who did the same and in fact as quite successful today so I came into the hurel space as they started to adopt our speaker technology that was used in hearing aids and from there began to see Ho- voice was becoming increasingly recently? Important in era balls the other converging event was on the other side of the nose house. Our Microphone Group. Who developed a small men's microphones for immobile? Phones originally won the Amazon Echo business. And so all you know early echoes were in our building and I got to experience voice that way so as voice started converging with the idea of having them in your ear. I really started the say to myself. I've got to learn what this is all about. I was fairly early on using Google assistant on my phone and then when I got Bluetooth can I could hearing aids about a year ago. I realized really how powerful was to. They have a voice assistant in my ear all day long and so all of those things really made me WanNa get educated voice space and learn the voice voice. Space is going. Who are the movers voice? What they're thinking and how that then will apply for the inner case I think ultimately and breadth? I think it was you. It was you who said that the smart speaker is the training wheels for voice and ultimately I think voice will be more useful out of the home than in the home when you're in the car. For example there are allowed to really valid use cases for using your voice in an automobile when you're on foot for example where you can see a lot of Interactions you would want to take place when you don't have your hands free or don't want to be looking down at the phone when Ned Taiwanese motorbike ghost buzzing by so. That's really how I came into the space and I have to say actually. The voice community is really supportive.

"dave kemp" Discussed on The Voicebot Podcast

"Ah why don't you say hello introduce yourself to the voice Bob podcast audience. I know they know you from a brief stint back in our hundred episode retrospective. But why don't you give them the rundown about why you're actually in this market. The White Oak tree products does sure thanks for bringing on today. And you know great to be back. That was a lot of fun that first time around. So my name's Dave camp. I am the Business Business Development Manager here at oak tree products and The way I got involved into the whole voice space is Oak Tree is a distributor of clinical supplies in assistive listening devices to hearing healthcare professional. So you know you think about anyone that fits hearing aids whether it be audiologist. ENT doctors Carrying healthcare professionals across the board. They purchase a lot of their goods from us. A lot of the things that they need from a professional standpoint in servicing their patients and so we are at a really interesting sort of intersection within the industry because we work with all the vendors and we work with all of the different professionals in back when I started working at Oak Tree fulltime I noticed that this was in two thousand sixteen. There was a clear trend. Tord a Bluetooth hearing aids. That was the major trend. Every everybody was pushing toward this idea of made for iphone hearing aids and basically it started to open up the door to You know the world of the smartphone. In all of the use cases that would provide so I started to think think about. Well what are going to be some of those unique use cases to In the ear devices whether it be hearing aids or more broadly you know what we call here. ables religious like a body. You weren't computer that you wear in your ear in one of the major ones that I came across was this idea of voice assistance in voice technology and ultimately to me the idea of having you know a Alexa or Syria Google assistant residing directly in your ear via the device. So that's how I got involved in this space site over the course of the last two or three years I've got my blog future ear. That's now a podcast is well and you know just following you in a lot out of the other individuals in the space that are connecting a lot of different people in having insightful conversations. It's allowed me to get a better understanding of how this whole technology in general enroll is evolving and getting a better picture as to the role that you're ables will play. Yeah that's great and I think it I should tell everybody WHO's listening that Dave is actually contributed number of articles on the herbal space to voice pot? So there's some really interesting articles. He is got insider's view. It's not from the perspective of Amazon or Google who is trying to push the assistant or even in many cases of the manufacturer who's like trying to push a product it's really more around servicing this the industry and thinking about it from the hearing aid perspective all the way up to consumer application. So I I really loved Dave's perspective on this. In fact I I think I saw your I like big conference presentation on this it which the Alexa Conference last year? A- and you'll be back project voice this year. I understand I will. Yeah I'M GONNA be on two panels one will be with Andy and The other there's GonNa be with Katherine Prescott but were you know in both panels just kind of building on that talk that you heard. That was really cool that I had I had you and I had Brian Romley. Katie McMahon In on that talk and it was just really cool like a lot of the people that I think have put forward a lot of thought leadership in helped to shape the way that I look at things to to be there in in provide feedback and I've just kind of built on it as time has gone on in really just trying to give perspective as to try to do two things. I'm trying to you Being advocate for my industry. So that I'm helping the developers in the designers in the voice base to think a little bit differently about just like voice in general in the experience that you can build for that type of modality you know the idea of like what is this type of experience look like if there is no screen but you're also also on the go and you're on foot and then also making my industry more aware that there's this huge new burgeoning use case that you should be speaking to in that fitting process process of you know like this is a whole new set of value that the patient derived from. And what's interesting is you look at some of the different demographic data that you've put out in you look at the different types of courts that are adopting voice technology. Older adults You know which are the ones that tend to wear hearing aids most often They're seeing a lot of value in this and they're really adopting a fast rate so I see there being a marriage between voice in hearing aids as this all kind of continues to mature are. That's great and we should come back to that idea of. This could be the on ramp to voices for older adults. But what I should do is I should also introduce our other guest asked Andy Bellavista from Knowles Corp also in expert in the space knows a little bit about Bluetooth Bluetooth hearing aids and a prolific video uh-huh maker on twitter of all sorts of voice interactive demonstrations. Andy why does she introduce yourself to the audience. That's that's quite an intro. Thanks thanks I really appreciate being on the podcast for the first time. I'm the responsible for marketing and business development for the hearing Health Tech Division at Knowles and actually my responsibility ons ability is everything but regulated hearing aids and I came into the voice space. Really by a convergence of a couple of different events I was involved in the beginning in all of their early development. For example I worked with froggy when they were a startup.

Engaging one it's been a a terrific community to get more involved with a very exciting and I think ultimately we're going to really change the way people interact with their technology analogy through voice whether in the ear or in other modalities. Yeah so both of you have experienced in the hearing aid industry and and that might not immediately resonate with some of our listeners about why that's relevant to the horrible space and so we've we've had this conversation. I Know Oh David I have. I've had it with many people but I don't think I've really had this conversation on the podcast before about the relationship between what's going on in here in a technology and the influence is going on with any type of any technology amplification technologies. That aren't really hearing aids. That are really this idea of here ables so so. Since you've been in that for a long time Andy and and you're you're at new hero and you've used Google assistant in all these you know. Oh this chipset level you know give perspective for how these different segments actually play off of each other in whether it is actually a- An integration of the two or overlap of the two or is it do we have the consumer side. This is going to overwhelm the hearing aid side at some point. Yeah that's a really good way to come at it. I think it's the convergence of the two after start by saying he will never take over the hearing aid space because true hearing aids I will always have to be regulated. Now when you talk about people with mild hearing loss routine amplification can do the job and so this is the sort of thing they think about a irritable label playing in that space. But when you're more severely hearing impaired you need more than amplification you. Actually you need application amplification at sufficient levels levels that you can actually damage normal hearing ear hence the medical regulations but the DSP does more than simply amplify because at a certain point. Amplification implication alone will not give you the best hearing correction. So you're always going to have that professional grade hearing aid with an audiologist just working with you to improve your hearing. If you're severely hearing impaired but in terms of the technology hearing aids really are the first successful here ables in the sense that they're doing pretty advanced. DSP work on incoming audio and they have batteries now rechargeable that last all day long I get mine out of the rack. It's six in the morning and I put him to bed at eleven o'clock at night all on the same charge. These are the sorts of things here. Ables can always think about yes. So why eight. Wh can't why doesn't that happen. Why don't we have air pods or pixel buds or something that can go twelve hours for these consumer applications which you would think less sophisticated? We're actually getting a lot closer to that The reason why is that yearbook devices used more general purpose programmable bramble consumer grade DSP's which consume more power hearing aids. Have a very customized custom designed a six that that do very specific tasks at very low power which incidentally is why hearing aids more expensive than era balls. You have an industry. which is I think? Sixteen or seventeen million hearing unit shipped annually worldwide off and five companies designing custom basics for those devices and so the the DSP's are very specialized so that they can deliver that sorta battery life while you know consuming a lot less power while doing very specific function. Do you have a sense of the different..
