"This is episode two 35 of The Voice by podcast, roger kibby joins me to discuss the latest with Samsung's Bixby voice assistant. Hey there voice by nation, this is Brett kinsella, your host The Voice by podcast. Today I welcome back roger kibbe to the podcast three years to the month since his first appearance in 2018. During our talk, we keep referring to 2019 as his first appearance. But the last year of 2020 was fogging our memory, it was actually three years ago. So when you hear 2019, a couple of times, it'll actually be 2018. But it was three years ago that the new Bixby was introduced by Adam cheyer and dog kit Laos at the Samsung developer conference. That was when the old Bixby was replaced by the viv lab's version we know today also referred to by Samsung as the new Bixby. Although it's not so new anymore at three years with maturity there. A lot has transpired since then and the voice assistant land. Three years ago, roger kibbe was an independent developer that had just won the first Bixby capsule developer contest, a couple of months later he would join Samsung and the viv laps team as its first dev evangelist. Roger and I go deep, I'm Bixby, and we also touched on the larger boys landscapes evolution in today's conversation. I'm the Bixby front, we discuss Bixby home and the integration of the voice assistant and AI intelligence into smart home solutions. This leads to an in depth discussion around command and control, voice interaction versus the multi turn conversations, which were pioneered by some of the voice assistants as well. I think you'll like the exchange on this topic. Roger kibbe is the senior developer evangelist of viv labs, part of Samsung research Americas. Broward whose current role with Bixby, he was founder of voice app development shop voice craft and spent more than a dozen years at the gap leading customer experience and logistics technology. Earlier in his career, he also worked as a consultant at Accenture. Next up, voice assistants, Bixby, and where this is all headed, let's get started..

"To <Silence> <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Music_Male> <Music> be determined <Speech_Male> what the conceptual <Speech_Male> idea <Speech_Male> being able to <Speech_Male> manage your voice <Speech_Male> presence in <Speech_Male> a single place <Speech_Male> and not have to race around <Speech_Male> the platforms <Speech_Male> and one person gets another <Speech_Male> prison. Doesn't i think <Speech_Male> has a lot of likes. <Speech_Male> So i go on <Speech_Male> and on about that but it's <Silence> an interesting <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> thing <Speech_Male> to work on. Yeah <Speech_Male> no i definitely <Speech_Male> like <Speech_Male> the idea of a voice <Speech_Male> registry <Speech_Male> and we'd sneak <Speech_Male> to make sure we do it in a <Speech_Male> way. That users <Speech_Male> are in control <Speech_Male> or are fully informed. <Speech_Male> I know that <Speech_Male> there are <Speech_Male> a number of <Speech_Male> early starters out <Speech_Male> in the voice industry <Speech_Male> that there were <Speech_Male> wanting to make voice <Speech_Male> experiences for customers <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> as a way <Speech_Male> to do that. They've <Speech_Male> created kind of like <Speech_Male> a marketing <Speech_Male> tool. <Speech_Male> Were they <Speech_Male> say. Hey you need to come <Speech_Male> in and lock <Speech_Male> in your <Speech_Male> domain name <Speech_Male> before somebody takes <Speech_Male> it and trying <Speech_Male> to use some of the same terminology <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> as what. <Speech_Male> The domain registry <Speech_Male> is on the web <Speech_Male> but really <Speech_Male> doesn't apply <Speech_Male> in some <Speech_Male> cases. I feel like <Speech_Male> borders on <Speech_Male> being unethical. <Speech_Male> Wh so <Speech_Male> having a voice registry <Speech_Male> that that <Speech_Male> provides value <Speech_Male> but in such <Speech_Male> a way that that <Speech_Male> people are fully informed <Speech_Male> at that <Speech_Male> ill in some cases <Speech_Male> you can <Speech_Male> fire website <Speech_Male> and your google <Speech_Male> action <Speech_Male> would in essence <Speech_Male> be verified in protected <Speech_Male> whereas <Speech_Male> on alexa you <Speech_Male> can have multiple things <Speech_Male> have the same <Speech_Male> wake <Speech_Male> same <Speech_Male> invocation name and <Speech_Male> and that you <Speech_Male> don't really the only thing that <Speech_Male> protects you there <Speech_Male> is if you've got the trademark <Speech_Male> for it <Speech_Male> so there is still <Speech_Male> a lot of confusion <Speech_Male> and some people i think <Speech_Male> are adding to the confusion <Speech_Male> but i really liked <Speech_Male> the idea of a voice <Speech_Male> registry the <Speech_Male> hopefully will <Speech_Male> put some more <Speech_Male> power into the <Speech_Male> hands of people and <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> make sure that <Speech_Male> they understand. What's going <Speech_Male> on <Speech_Male> something <Speech_Male> standard. That works <Speech_Male> year right. I mean <Speech_Male> i've seen us to <Speech_Male> you talking about <Speech_Male> marketing. <Speech_Male> Feel like <Speech_Male> they're <Speech_Male> quite frankly taking <Speech_Male> a advantage of <Speech_Male> people who don't quite understand <Speech_Male> it's happening <Speech_Male> fragment different <Speech_Male> you gave the great example. <Speech_Male> Lexa allows <Speech_Male> duplicate indicates <Speech_Male> names <Speech_Male> goo google <Speech_Male> bixby currently. <Speech_Male> Do i think <Speech_Male> at some point. You're going to have <Speech_Male> to allow my <Speech_Male> example. Bops doughnuts <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> you're gonna be smart <Speech_Male> about higher <Speech_Male> kind of elect <Speech_Male> album and not <Speech_Male> create this <Speech_Male> kind of rushed. <Speech_Male> You know <Speech_Male> people have run <Speech_Male> out. There is definitely <Speech_Male> your the maintenance <Speech_Male> quarreling. There's definitely <Speech_Male> voiced squad <Speech_Male> on right <Speech_Male> where people have these <Speech_Male> kinda crap <Speech_Male> you know <Speech_Male> fact based <Speech_Male> things that are sitting there <Speech_Male> i would. I <Speech_Male> hope we <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> hope we could avoid <Speech_Male> some that and <Speech_Male> yet human nature <Speech_Male> is to go <Speech_Male> and try to <Speech_Male> outsmart <Speech_Male> the person next <Speech_Male> to him but you know <Speech_Male> anyway fun <Speech_Male> stuff to work on and <Speech_Male> i think i think you've done <Speech_Male> right. Which is hard <Speech_Male> it'll <Speech_Male> be good <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> industry <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> will thank <Speech_Male> you very much. Roger for <Speech_Male> being on the to <Speech_Male> voice dubs or <Speech_Male> would love to have you back <Speech_Male> again Sometimes <Speech_Male> to voice <Speech_Male> dubs and for those <Speech_Male> that are watching or <Speech_Male> listening. We'll just <Speech_Male> hope you're enjoying <Speech_Male> what you're learning and <Speech_Male> also we <Speech_Male> invite you to <Speech_Male> ask questions <Speech_Male> or to get involved <Speech_Male> because you're <Speech_Male> just as important <Speech_Male> as as anyone <Speech_Male> else in this industry if you've <Speech_Male> got a desire <Speech_Male> to make a difference <Speech_Male> and contribute <Speech_Male> were <SpeakerChange> happy <Speech_Male> to accept that contribution <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> so <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> awesome.

"Using voice assistance. Conversational ai right. We've all read articles. Now gosh this thing records you know. i think. It's a humping industry to get past that kind of concerns to go do that. And i feel like we're kind of made me bumping into that right now. There's anyway lots to talk about that there. Some standards and some thinkings thoughts around not only technology but how to communicate what happens. You know kind of nontechnical ways so like even understands what happens a voice technology while enough they feel comfortable with her data and then the other thing is all about interoperability hill has to. That's like our friends you know jehovah would. We're just talking about a great tool for interoperability. But how do we take this massive all these different platforms and start thinking about what. How can we build something interoperable instill let the platforms. Innovate among themselves. I mean obviously our mark. Taking my i work for hat off completely. The reason the web one is because of interoperability right. Yeah and i remember the browser wars. I was on his true man. I remember fighting. i eat. I eat so great here for my sex just one that lot lot. Lots of actually blood. Then it becomes a now today. I could build a really great web application work on any browser and so you don lot so thinking about how to bring up the voice industry and how to work with the big the big platform providers to kate for the at bring that forward and in the last thing is really about autocar voice registry of billion s for voice. So you know you go and you have the invocation aiming Lexa it's a different process than go. You built your alexa skill or your bixby capsule you know and saying. Hey let's create this. Dns like functionality. Where you can go register. This white had available. That's the one. I'm pretty deeply involved in pretty interesting. I mean it sounds simple. It is simple yet. It's not because you start thinking about okay if there's to voice. I conflict experiences voice apps my new brand neutral name for i don't know let's say bob's donuts well. There could be ten. Bob's donuts across the country. Oh yeah i ask for box donuts. Who who are probably asking for the local bob stem. it's not bob's donuts in louisiana. So how do i figure that out or give enough information to the voice assistant foreign to figure that out. Sounds like all these different things anyway. Pretty deeply involved that were were just at the stage where we done done enough darn talking analysis and really starting to build out some prototypes ideas to be something pretty open in standard that either individual voice pot from go and take and us open standard or maybe it ends up something if you think about the lab right. There's a whole made registry and you go through this process and it's a third party who handles exactly how that fits.

Oh man can you imagine if in. So i think that's what the just the grand opportunity in front of us makes it that really collegial kind of environment so i love talking to people from anybody and everybody in this industry. It's a great great and fund industry. Yeah no it has been i. I can even still picture i dyke. That first conference that we're at. I can picture the library. I can also picture the party. They had one night at the bar. It was like a guitar museum or something like that. Yes yes and and so they had like spread. I think of different types of nuggets and dipping sauces. Maybe but i remember even like what what position on the bar that we pulled over a chair and just kind of like. Hey you know.

"Appliances. And taylor if you've seen that smart refrigerator with a giant screen and in samsung. Tv's and then there's an end user marketplace for all those except not quite tv and inten. there's another device coming pretty soon. That i can talk about that but the little breaking news or fun thing there for ya so you're building for those is pretty darn different. So i started his did bowling for alexa. Me no moghul. Bit one moderately successful skill botch the not ever uses. So i did a little bit with google. And then when i joined labs events start obviously doing big lead at all really different really model driven and declared if right see new bunch of online and very little traditional coating and quite quite different for instance than alexa rights. Alexei is mostly imperative. You fair amount of coding right. You do your lambeth though right. There's a much of weller playing code. Got right and they are any of your business logic. Although you clearly you model your l. training in alexa and google somewhere between the middle of the two but yet again give an example so we had a lebanon. I took the match skill. Kind of pretty well known the open source alexa thing and put it over. Sixty and i think in alexa was something. Like four hundred. Fifty lines of no jazz code and i was like thirty five lines of actual javascript code..

What Makes Bixby Different with Roger Kibbe From Viv Labs

"This labs is the brain behind samsung bitty. Roger has worked in voice and conversational. Ai strategy execution for quite some time he up some really great points about contextual awareness talked about how big these different from our competition really i think. Two primary ways one we're inherently multi-modal into focus on devices that are not smart speakers all devices that big is currently on have screens. The this means is that when you're building bixby capsule capsules white collar boy sap lexical skills gocha qasem actions. You're building a multi modal experience. Matter of fact you need to. I think there's a lot of voice assistance. Sue have kinda rich support for graphics and multimodality and come out but also on the input with dixie. So if you're asking for input at dixie on the i you can have a form you can have a slider ican buttons. You could interact with it via the screen or your voice really depending on contractually contractually. What works best for you in that situation. I mean i love voice but sometimes tapping button on a screen is better than speaking to things. so it gives you that capability. I love smart speakers. I have smart speakers in my house all over the place. I think they're great. I think we've done wonders with them in industry but if we're going to grow as an industry we're going to kind of move beyond the smart speaker when i mean by that is there's a whole group of people who would never go out and buy a smart speaker but they certainly might go out of by samsung tv and then they bring it home. Knock out this is cool. I can talk to my technology. And now you have a new voice consumer who's now talking to a device. It didn't buy it. Because i voice was kind of just feature of it. But now they discover it and now they get comfortable talking to their technology. And i think that's going to unlock a bunch industry. And i'm super excited about that.

"It strikes me when i've seen the different voice platforms and this isn't surprising. But they were kind built with a little bit of a web mentality in mind like this is a defined. ui flow the kind of defines. How i do things. And so i built this kind of framework with that kind of thinking in line. I don't blame. The people did it because everyone would do the same thing. Voices new but really voices so dot defined so open. People say things out of order. They can go back they. Can you know we do it. All the time in our conversations and i it feels to me like the existing frameworks sometimes get awfully rigid. Is how they want you to to things that that that then you end up writing an awful lot of code and i to. I hate writing plumbing coat yet. I want something that takes away a bunch of that plumbing for me and then right right interesting stuff we're still with any of the platforms writing a bunch of plumbing code because they haven't been optimized but we're still in early days. I mean look at all. Just go back to your example of the early web alan. It was pretty bad. It was pretty hard in the nineties to write web applications. And it's yeah people people who weren't there at the time don't don't remember what it was like. Yeah they don't and so you've got to give it time to mature and and understand and it's a completely different medium to and so there's different needs there <hes>. And i was. I was thinking when you're talking about a set of reasonable components. I had a dream reusable source components. Yes very big fan of open source. I think that would be a great <hes>. Great contribution to the voice community such as snl markup. But you know it's interesting like i wonder if we'll get to a point if you look on the web world and that i mean you can actually go out and buy components that do things and i haven't seen that so much invoice. I know there's like some believe there's a website that launch fairly recently that has a bunch of ap l. examples and actually selling some. I thought that was really interesting. I thought that was encouraging to the industry. If someone could find a way to monetize and create something where there's these reusable components that can be used and they don't have to come from the platform providers me as an independent third party. Developer can create them. Obviously yes beautiful to be open source but also okay. If they're a little closed they're being sold. I mean not just that will open it up a lot and if you look at the web and mobile. There's just so many frameworks it's almost. What framework do i start with.

How did i get involved with technology. Where where where in my career kind of evolve. And i found what i was good at bat. Things in in kind of bounced around and found the path. That's really successful in in in in a happy place for so I that that's ashen about about Because i know i feel. There's a lot of people who i hear these things. I'm you must have a computer science degree bullshit. No matter of fact some of the most interesting technology things. I've seen built have been people who had a background art or history english or that and that's nothing those computer science degrees because they built amazing things too. But i think you can bounce around and don't be afraid to reinvent yourself along the way i've i've done that a couple of times and i figured out to do that a couple more times before i hang up the spurs so to speak so great advice now. That's awesome roger. Where can people go to check with you. Learn more about what you're doing. What samsung is doing all the good resources. What would you suggest the ads for myself personally.

Being real human in the industry and you know really fostering a sense of inclusion and diversity.

"I'm a show samson how i can move the needle. I'm joe amazon. Or google. How i can get the world's attention This specific type of people. And i just thought it might be nice to share like honestly if you will show the world what you're capable of As evangelist like go make a bunch of noise about these things for samson bixby. And i think this is also a good final question for me in that lets you talk a bit about Things that people should be checking out around You know samson's doing so that's my. That's my final question. sure so i love you sitting kubica. Go make a bunch of noise. 'cause that's actually my biggest advice when it's as simple but go make a budget ice. Get on twitter right. So i i'd say the voice industry he's kind of defacto. Social media thing is largely twitter some linked in by twitter is probably the most where we see a lot. Go get there in. Explain what you're doing And and share it and tag the right people and do it You know post covid right go out in the community and i think it's a look. I used to be terrified. Actually go on stage or talk to group of warren like five people believe it or not. Now i really love it. And that's because i force myself to do it so go force yourself go do it. Getting on stage go talked a lot of people. I don't care if your knees are shaking. I remember my knees shake and go. Do i think it's an interesting because it tells you even though my knees shake. I used to be energized. Afterwards i'm like. I like doing this but i'm not comfortable to it so a little bit. That's make yourself uncomfortable So i'd say go through things on social media Go go built. You know we're in we. We built experiences. App skills capsules. You know there's lots of names place where the go build some really cool and interesting and innovative. I just said at the beginning. One of the problems in the voice industry is. I think we're too narrow in what we're building go build sutton wacky and crazy and things that you know in some sense build a wacky as craziest things i love in the hardest silicon valley mother reason. Silicon valley does is a special place. Entrepreneurs is nobody thinks any idea is. App is wacky. There might be some crazy ideas but some some of the crazy ideas came from the most successful companies in the world. So i'd say. I'd love to see people bill. I when i noticed something and i see something new coming in like. Wow i never even thought that you could build voice app for that or conversational. A are around. That data is what i really love. So get your crazy on. Go build something up wild. Go talk about what you built. And you're gonna get noticed. That's great great advice. Great advice roger. Boy we're running out of time and there's so much more wanted to talk with you about Just one thing. I just wanted to give you an opportunity to talk about that and i thank you for having me on your podcast. But you've got an amazing podcast. And i wonder if you could just tell. Tell the viewers or listeners. A little bit about your podcasts. I think it's a great resource. Yeah so started at the beginning of this year Bixby developers shot. I have usually about forty five minutes to an hour. Long conversations And really. It's i always say it's a couple of people sitting down having a conversation about voice Hopefully my guess is doing a lot more talk in the lions the host of their line locations so i have to watch that but you know sitting down talking about voice..

"This role i think is really about being happy to be talk and communicate people really enjoying being on things like this which i love this in some times is industry people like well you gotta have the deep technical background blah blah blah bs right. Okay all right. I have a degree in psychology. Said i did not affect a cs degree right and But think about people who are great communicators. I think they can learn attack but learning to be a great communicator and wanting to go out in front of being excited to get up on stage in front of a bunch of people is something that yes you can learn to do. But sometimes it's kind of innate in you to go find those people right in teaching the tech says start with an peop- him saying start with the people i start with the groups. You wanna find. Go find them hire for that in and find people that are great people people people people and they can learn the technology afterwards. I honestly think that's the easy part and and and check this out. Johnny who's watching says loved the idea of focusing on needs of people rather than tech. So that's right along with what you're saying there. I think i think that's that's fantastic. Go ahead you just want to be a special sturgis time here to finish up your search wrote. It should fall to this question to see if we can get a little bit more direction for people that are watching live or more likely watching the archive in five minutes or five hours or five days from now. So let me land here. If somebody assistant himself like our raise my hand like i. I'd be totally down to be an urban evangelist. For any of these devices right be completely open to be an evangelist to you. Know this people grouper this industry etc. I think it's unrealistic to imagine that somebody that raises their hand is going to get a job at samsung or amazon or apple. Just because they're willing. I think there has to be entry points and so like entry points i can think of right off the bat just for those watching. I'm looking at you thinking about you right now. If you want to be a diverse evangelist in the voice tech industry than show the world that you can do for women voice other world new for the voice fluency. Show show the world that you can do for the voice de show the world what you can do for x. In canada for voice in canada for most of health right you understand. That terry has put so much energy into creole this content. So if you think you have an ability to evangelize voice content use some terry's content so roger. This is the question for you. What are some entry points in your mind that people can kind of show their chops around being a diverse evangelist for things inside of the samsung bixby ecosystem like whereas a blog or a twitter handle. Where's the place or places that people could go and they could say..

"Samson bixby But really working on a being a part of how he manages people. Okay so that's a little context for what i recognize in your answer my answer. Now based on your a statement of diversity in the need for diversity you recognize it lot. We've made some big strides in women in voice out enough but we've made some big strides but maybe there's even more room for improvement with ethnicities right like how many people are african american or are indian or latino that or that are really have a strong voice. There are like the leaders of the industry. So all coming back to you being a senior developer evangelist. I have found that. In the voice tech industry the evangelist roles those that are the promoters of the products and services. It's not just one angeles. There's a alexa. Audley vange There's the evangelist for all these different things. There's a developer side. How might you. If samson or even amazon or google or apple team and said hey listen we wouldn't like diversify and we want to have more evangelist to cover more ground and they say and they ask you like what would you think about having an urban bench list which think about having evangelists for different languages or different tribes. Can you talk a bit about if one of the companies. Obviously the most obvious for you comes to you and says hey. We're concerned about diversity. You're concerned about diversity. We think there's options and opportunity to diversify the evangelist role inside of our organization. Roger can you give us some advice on the type of evangelist roles that we can easily Make space to where the right person for that role would be diverse first anyways. I think you know where i'm going. I just wanted to speak to that a bit about how there can be an immediate solution to this issue that we all recognize just in your line of work just right there so anyway. I thought that'd be initiating for people to listen to you talk about that's a great question What immediately sports me And you're mentioning it when you're talking about it. Is you talked about an urban evangelist or evangelist. We all talk about evangelist. They're typically broken up by technology. Right we focus on this technology that technology but you know in my job really is a bunch of marketing which it really is right in marketing to developers designers there Then maybe there isn't urban Evangelists mamie there's a latin american evangelist. I don't know how to break all these things up and that but stop thinking about breaking things up by technology and think about breaking up by the people you want to go out and reach. And who's the voice to go out and reach those people. I think that would be the first thing i would think of. The other thing is Being a great evangelist or doing well..

"Solution there. But i do know that talking about it and encouraging diversity is at least the beginning of a solution in sorry. Lots of saying this is great. I love hearing you speak thing is. I'm just going to call this point. The fingers all of us on a call it a lack of creativity in in what we built. So we all we can do timers. We can do music right. We play simple games. We do some amy home automation. And that's about it. Even those of us who are most deeply steeped in the industry you kind of have. Well what do use voice for Probably one of those three or four and then there's now allow else and so i think we're kind of stuck there and i we need to think it'd be more creative or think about where you see a lot of friction. You know i. Every time i see of doing a house remodeling some looking at appliances right. And there's like eighty seven buttons there man on like the more complicated bats screens for voice interface. Right instead it is not human depress twenty button to get something done. It's human something to be done. You know i would love. I've said it before. I would love apps and mobile. I wanna voice enabled itself what i can't figure out half things you could do with excel but explain them. I just think you know those kind of very practical things. But i also think kind of on the entertainment side on gaming etc. We need to be more creative. Because we're stuck. I believe we're stuck in a little bit of a rut. I see a lot of meat and things there so we need a bus through that confidence going to happen. But it's gonna have to happen. A voice is to grow and expand. Yeah you need that one. Big breakthrough upscale capsule. Whatever you want to to really kinda showcase to the world. What is possible. Yeah i mean. I mean people talk about that. The angry birds voice maintenance that or maybe it's just a whole new way of interacting where we didn't re there's a lot of friction doing it that way be currently do it. Invoice takes away that friction. And then you build a bunch of cool creative experiences on top of that idea so whether it's at or one kind of conceptual ideas were voices. The very best user experience. It's a question but i. I'm looking forward to that happening. It's going to happen but we got to work hard to make. Sure your ian. Let's get in here. So i really liked the way this conversation's going. I'm gonna give a little context to my question. But we're going to land on the question roger just to give you a little time to think about. It is when you talk about diversity. I wanna talk about The human element of how do we increase diversity at least amongst evangelists since that's a major role that you play but let me let me give a little content of the questions. I asked you about adam ir earlier in samsung and it was interesting. You recognize that adams the smartest guy in the room which he probably wouldn't agree with you. Because i find adam to be a very humble in response so it adds not type of guy like that's right. I'm smart guy. He's like oh come on but you talked about what a great innovator is right like all the things that he brought to the table. Boy you really said it out to was the humanity of at and that adam was may be best at being an innovator amongst people and that will you gain. The most was not working on adams..

Aweso house a positive working for adams the easiest question. We're all to answer. Because really adams. The reason i joined samsung right. I met adam hackathon. Simpson's doing hackathon and i met this guy and i've heard of them and i was all intimidated right. And you know this did this guru and enemies like. Hey how's it going. Money's adam super down to earth and what i realized and were than working with adam is. He's he's he's the smartest guy in the room pretty much always and you know i always say we're all driving fifty five sixty five driving one hundred. But he's super humble about it and he's he just sees and puts together things in any has his quiet leadership style where he gets people to see his vision and execute on his vision. Say paints this amazing picture but not beyond painting that picture. Because i think a lot of people compare these amazing pictures. He's a really great leader actually Around hey why don't you try this. Why don't you incurred this. Oh this is challenging. let's go here. Let's make incremental steps along that path to my vision. And that's the thing that. I don't think a of people know about adam is i think you see his visionary thought leadership but you don't see his visionary people leadership and.

2021 Voice AI Predictions: Dave Kemp on Audioburst and podcast segmentation

"Probably overlooked in the space But this dynamic thing i always think about audio burst. Because they did two things one is. They can do that. Dynamic search because they are indexing everything in real time that they ingest and they can even segment by topic and so they can give you dodge the entire riot the entire thing. And that's what we see today. We see there's a number of companies out there that are saying. Hey i can scan everything and say this you can listen to one of these three These three things but they basically give you the full episode whereas audits say hey the topic you want starts here and then you can figure. And then they'll allow you to jump so well. I think the the piece to that to that where a lot of that innovation the backbone of it will be in both t t s in speeches. I think a lot of it's gonna be in the ability to identify in the transcript where that is and then it will probably use that as the mechanism for which it identifies where to start the podcast. You know like you said. That's for me when i listened to. I've talked about this. I think every time. I've talked to you the conversation with mir her shut audio bursts on. Your podcast was really enlightening. Because if you can. I think you know you talk for sixty minutes podcast or whatever and maybe for some people they just want that three minute clip in. So it's all about like. How do you get to that. Three minute clip. Because the three minute clip. That i want to get to. You might be different than one that you want to get to and if you make it so that that all that information that's stored in that sixty minute. Conversation is is able to be dynamically searched like you mentioned. That's a humongous game changer. I think makes a big difference. You and i were just talking about friedman podcast which i enjoy as well and he's talked recently about this fact that a lot of people will come to him afterwards because he's interviewed eli mosque and they'll say nobody journalists and all they want like this part of it. I wanted to know if you've talked about this. And so he was thinking about providing transcripts But i must actually has been on a lot of podcast. I mean not a lot you know just like just like a nominal term but a lot compared to other people right. He's he's more open about and is someone like you. Audio bursts engine could be somebody else. I think they have the the engine. That's designed to do this specifically could really make that a lot easier for people. There's a lot of people doing transcripts. And that's generally how it happens you get the transcript and then you do control f. and with some sort of word and then you could you look at and then you read and you're like oh that's it and then you say okay. What's the time stamp on that. And then you go and listen well. Jeez wouldn't you know like automatic. Segmentation is closer telling you what topics are in. They're

Diversity and Inclusion Opportunities in Conversational AI With Roger Kibbe, Senior Developer and Evangelist for Viv Lab

"And kind of building off of that We kinda started speaking on it. But what would be your perspective on the state of inclusiveness and diversity in conversational ai. So so i like to think of things. Globally sometimes big picture and draw down to the to the more local small picture but there is something aram near eight hundred million people in the world who are illiterate and although the internet. There's something like i believe that. Internet access about sixty percent people have internet access. That means four point. Two billion people don't have internet access. So i think about. There's this huge group of people who don't have internet access and nan bear is a non trivial portion largely probably of them who are illiterate And so one unlock waste can be a technology certainly to those eight hundred million people who are literate right. it'd be a way for them to interact with technology in a way they were previously completely locked out but i also think of home bringing a voice assistant may be a way to bring technology to and the internet and access to people who otherwise don't have it because it's relatively cheap and inexpensive compared to some other technologies so i get all excited about kind of the world opening up with voice but i think even if you think about let's just take it down to an i'll just talk about the us. So certainly. the diversity of our population is not yet reflected invoiced designers and developers. And you know it's not only Being a good human to be diverse. But i also. I always say it makes great business sense when we're not diverse we you really constrain. The number of uses of our product look. I'm a white middle-aged american male. That gets when i build experiences. I build experiences that likely. Resonate with white millage american males. That's a very limited subset of the people. Though the more diverse that people are who build your product the more diverse your customers are traits so it behooves the industry to really have a diverse a As possible people building products. Because they're going to bill things that there's a whole audience that then will love that experience become engaged with it and it just makes you know you get another virtual site virtuous cycle where You build more diverse things you get a greater more diverse audience. You get more users. It's good. I think when i look at voice i think we're doing okay and i say that relative to the tech industry and i say we're doing so on a on a gender basis. We're probably doing better than some other areas of technology which is heartening to me. But there's certainly some work that needs to be on there on a racial basis. Now we have to do. I just don't see us as nearly as diverse is like. I said that the country as the world is You know we need to. We need to go out and find those people with diverse backgrounds and diverse diversed genders and diverse racial to go become part of the industry one of the beauties. This is a new technology. So i would love us not to make some mistakes that we've seen in the past new technologies where the same old same old belt built the new stuff right. So how can we go and get people who never touch technology before. Bring them in and say. Hey here's this. Cool new tack a be part of it be part of that as a consumer but i also would love to be part of it is go build design. It right are building. 'cause you're gonna build super cool interesting experiences. That wouldn't have been thought of in less someone with your background. was brought into the industry. So i could go on. And on. But i think we're we're doing okay but darn there's a lot of opportunity up there we need to keep on talking about it and besides hockey we can't keep acting upon it. It's it's kind of imperative.

Interview With The Host Of Talking Mopars Podcast

"Today, our guest is Chris Albrecht Chris host, the podcast talking Mo- parts. He has built this baby as the number one podcast on planet earth which I like, and he himself is known as the moped hunter. Since our four hundred and fortieth episode was coming up I thought it would be good to do something to mark the occasion, and maybe he'll correct me here when it comes to mow power power plants, I think four forty may be the one I think of I even more than a four twenty-six, even more than three. Really four forty is what I think of I. But. What I really want to do here is focused on mopus and celebrate kind of a special day Chris Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me on rob I'm happy to be here. Totally. So. Chris let some ground rules here. I'M A podcast year. Europe podcast her we either have to work together or we gotta go to like the death and Only one of us can win I'm all for working together. Sound Good Man before I ever got into podcasting. I was a fan of many automotive podcasts including yours and that kind of pave the way for me to go. You know I'm obviously not going to do a podcast about muscle cars because that would be competing with the big dogs but I decided to focus my podcast on what I'm absolutely one hundred percent passionate about which is parts totally at most that was tongue in cheek and it's a big world out here man, there's so much room and. Opportunity and I have made more friends in the podcast space than I can even count and it's always been a good thing. It should be that we're competitors but were really not I. Don't know why it works that way but it works hand in hand and I really enjoy this and I can't wait to learn more here. So Chris let's start with the basics before you even get to the moped stuff. This is our first conversation ever where are you? Where'd you grow up get into? Cars I grew up in Seattle Washington and I currently live about thirty miles north in Marysville. I grew up around Mope ours I spent a lot of my formative years in a nineteen seventy five dodge custom. What we know now as Boogie Van Really Yeah my dad bought a seventy five cargo van a dodge black nothing in it completely gutted and he built it from the ground up you know this shag carpet the bed in the. Back the spoiler, the porthole windows, the side of the crater mags, all the fender flares the whole kit and caboodle along with that vehicle my dad in one, thousand, nine, hundred, I was born in one, thousand, eight, five, thirty, five and my dad bought a brand new Daytona Turbo Z in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five black with louvers and the car has a talking computer in it so it will tell you if your doors are ajar and things. Like that and as a kid, I thought that was the coolest ever being I'm watching rider on TV and my dad's car as a young kid I'm like Oh my God, my dad's car talks to. So ever since I was young Mo parts have had an impact on my life and when I was young, my dad didn't have a par muscle car but I, had heard stories of his nineteen sixty nine dodge dart that used to go. To, the street races with and just have a general good time with and I was always intrigued I'm a car enthusiast I. I, respect anybody that has a passion for cars. I don't care if it's a Ford Chevy or an import I respect all but I've always had a deep seated love for Mo- powers and when I got older, I can finally afford to get myself a couple of projects. So here we are what were your first products? My first Mo Pars were a nineteen sixty-nine Dodge Dart coincidentally, the same color as my dad's name I've found that, and now I also have a nineteen seventy six dodge deal one, hundred short bed pickup truck that I love as well, and that was kind of like my answer to the C. Tens because I've had see tens before in the past before I got into buying my. Own mopeds, construction company, and the owner bought me a seat in. So I've had my fair share of different vehicles but something always dragged me back to mow pars in when I was finally in a position to get myself a couple I never looked back.

Today I'm GonNa, make it much easier for you to do it or our tagline was wordpress for voice work presses in the web world course lots of templates makes it easy for small business to get online really easily we wanted to build that voice. I will say I think it's still a really good idea. And allow ways kind of untapped but you know I I think there's a saying that ideas are cheap execution is hard on certainly learned that you know I think we built a bunch of things, but we weren't fully executing inside started veering over into kind of consulting side and doing my own consulting work and that's when I. entered that expe-, Pakistan one night and those conversations led to where I currently am super happy I did it.

So one of the reasons why you and I are having this interviews and you guys who you're about to or you have already depending on where you watch. This rolled out the ability for photographers to kind of in a way replicate what some other players in the cloud. Image storage space. You're doing like smug Mug and Pixie set excetera in terms of building galleries and assigning priceless to those galleries and allowing customers to come in and purchase from either a password or unpasteurized protected area. Which what you told me before. We even started that up until just now has not been possible. Take me through that. Because I'm one of those people I use Mug Mug. I still have my Pixie set account as well and some others And I'm a wordpress user. This week in photo is run on wordpress. Obviously be nice to have the power to have that in house to me. GimMe Gimme the gist of what you guys built. Yes so as you said Thirty thirty five percent of the Internet runs on wordpress. So thirty five percent of photographers are using wordpress. And many of them are using wordpress alongside something like smug monk and it's all good and well if that's what you want but for photographers. Who Want to do everything in one platform that they control? That is a wordpress site. You now have the solution to not only sell in and sell prints and digital downloads. But the prince you have the option to automatically had this refilled by a print lap and the first pre lab we integrated with is White House custom color. Nice and more will be on the way of course but for now. That's that's the only one that's there and the cool part is that yes next Gen gallery built on is a Free Plug. It has about a million active users. It's one of the most popular press ins ever. Definitely the most popular alary plugging is the fastest gallery plug in and it's more than just your typical gallery. Plugin display your photos. It has a full gallery management system in it and that system kind of gives you this it will. It definitely gives you the separation of galleries and not. Everything's in one media library folder. It's all separated and it allows you to fine-tune everything to put in different image tags. Which will import your exit data. So you'll have any keywords. What become tex which means you can create galleries based on tags? If you want we have You know titles and descriptions and things like that and when you the this gallery that you've created and you want to attach a priceless it so you create a price list as some prince from the lab. Some print options and we by default automatically pick the most popular prince from the lab. And then you can add more. You can even do at all if you want to destroy everything once and and that's your price list. If you want to add digital download you can do that and you attach that priceless to the gallery and you once you sell you sell your Princeton. You don't think about the part of come mattress. You don't have to think about The the the the printing the the the editing that comes after that 'cause you know you don't have to worry about replacing inks all that fun stuff on that. So you know like I said before having having been in being a user of these cloud based services the in this is a completely appropriate question especially for someone who's intimate with wordpress and and image making and how stuff goes but the word press. Yeah it's it's almost the defacto standard on the web for for many many many sites out there myself my my sites included but the double edged sword of wordpress is giants got his amazing robust community. Anything that you can imagine you can build and or configured to do but in my opinion or in my experience that's also the Achilles heel of wordpress because there's always updates and plug in conflicts and you know okay you. You're not really bill. If for me it feels like you're not really building on a on a stable foundation. You're building on a foundation that can reconfigures itself every now and then you gotTa make sure everything that's on top of it is good to go. How does how do you guys mitigate that with next Gen and Gal next-gen Gallery and the other services you offer so that if I do put my mission critical business and galleries up there and I have a bride? That's coming in that. Wants to see and by prince she's going to be able to see those and give me money so. I just what you said that that there's sort of this Achilles heel I like to say that We're presses amazing because it can literally do anything but it's also a sometimes a pain the butt because it can literally do anything from so so yes there can be conflicts with different plug ins. Yes you have to worry about. Updates at image league on top of potential complex all the time we get a lot of people coming in that might have a bug here and there and we have a team that troubleshoot said and and can handle those and we have a development team that is fast and we will address any conflicts or bugs that come up that are that need immediate attention if you're having if we're having a conflict with a plugin like you which has happened in the past then that's a plugin that is popular enough. We have to address it. We know that plug in is installed in pretty much every photographers website. We have to fix it. So but if it's if it's a conflict with the plug and then might have a hundred users total well that's not a priority because unfortunately there's not many people using a small amount of people. Yeah yeah so we have to go with with what is impacting the majority

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.

"It's almost better than sports. The stay in history class is production of Heart Radio Harvey One. I'm eve and welcome to this day in history class. A podcast where we dust off a a little piece of history and place. It ever so gently on your shelf every day. Today is January thirtieth twenty twenty. The day was January thirtieth seventeen three a group of forty six Ronin in order Samurai without a master avenge the death of their deceased master by killing kit a Yoshinaga. Though the event occurred on January thirtieth based based on the Western calendar Japan used a lunar calendar at the time according to contemporary dating the event took place in Gin Roku fifteen on the fourteenth day of the twelfth month. This difference in calendars has caused some confusion. Over the date of the event that said the Japanese temple where the Ronin were buried holds a festival commemorating the event every year on December fourteenth during the Tokugawa period which lasted from sixteen. o three to eighteen sixty fifty seven Japan was under the rule of the shogunate or a military government. The shogun or chief military commander ruled in the name of the emperor. Aw Daimyo or feudal lords were vassals of the Shogun though they were limited from gaining too much independent Power Samurai no longer had to engage engage in battle since Japan was at peace but each Daimyo did hire army of Samurai to protect their families and property in Samurai still had Coz Ziff honor and conduct known as Bushido that they abided by Ronin often became masterless because they didn't fulfil their duties because they were defeated in battle or because because they're master fell from power or die if a summarize master died or was deposed the Samurai could choose to serve the new Daimyo but if his master was defeated or killed in battle or if he did not want to transfer his allegiance. The Samurai may choose to die by suicide. Those who chose to live as Ronin often did so in disgrace the story of the forty seven Ronin. One of the most well-known Japanese history began when emperor he got she yama stint imperial envoys from Kyoto to the shoguns court at Eto or present day Tokyo. A high official named Kiyoshi NOCCO was in charge as master master of ceremonies for the visit US Nagano. A daimyo from echo was one of the daimyo assigned to receive the invoice kid s about training meaning him and another Daimyo in court etiquette but kit a allegedly treated poorly possibly because of inexperience or because the presence awesome offered. Weren't good enough either way us. No attacked Kita wasn't hurt badly but awesome knows action was considered a huge huge offence. Arsenault was ordered to die by Seppuku. or a form of ritual suicide by disembowelment after awesome knows death. forty-seven his Samurai right led by OAC Yoshiko toes to become Ronin and seek revenge by killing Kita. They started gathering information on kid has house and they split up taking jobs as laborers in merchants to throw Canada and other shogunate officials off their trail. Oishi began to drink alcohol heavily and frequent Geisha the houses to alleviate suspicions and his agents began to think that the Ronin were harmless but on the night of January thirtieth seventeen o three the forty forty. Seven Ronin Matenaer. Eto One of the Ronin Ten Asaka Ki Ay Mon was sent to a code to announce that the rate on Cuba's mansion was happening. Other accounts of the incident. Say that he left after the battle but on this snowy night the Ronan told kids neighbors of their plans to attack his mansion and and they went forward with their plan after killing and wounding many of Canada's Samurai they found Kira hiding and beheaded him all the Ronin survived the attack back which lasted into the predawn hours of the next morning. They then took it as head to Austin as grave at the Sangha cousy temple and the story of their revenge and spread. The ronin were praised by many for their loyalty and for killing Kibbe. They had avenged the death of their master but their actions were still still illegal. Instead of ordering them executed the Shogun allowed them to commit.
