"From apple which is basically a smart display concept that everybody wants today with really smart assistant that can just coordinate and do all sorts of really complex for we're nowhere near the knowledge navigator from nineteen eighteen eighty six that apple is trying to sell apples probably the furthest from it but a lot of these ideas have been out there. It's a matter of putting it together and getting the right momentum behind the idea to bring it to market just like you know the the momentum behind the smart speaker probably wouldn't have happened without sort of the the strong conviction of someone like Jeff Bezos Okay so final story our final episode one of the favorites. I certainly got a tie search social media probably the favorite episode last fall. I sat down with Shire episode sixty nine Dave and Pete. You both put this on your list. <hes> tell me why start with you. Dave well like I said earlier. It's just unbelievable like the Times that we live in today to where you can get one of the founding fathers of technology like Adam Shire like hearing. His story was really really fascinating another S._R._I.. Guy <hes> who's been I think he said he's kind of at this for twenty five years and what was really fascinating about it was that he sort of envisioned. It's like he didn't envision the web or mobile but he envisioned voice in the Smart Assistant Listen epoch and <hes> so I just thought that was really interesting and the way that you know he has his trajectory has gone you know starting with Siri and then leaving apple in moving to give the now at bixby but the thing that arms are Samsung <hes> the thing that really stood out to me is when he's describing the idea behind a capsule in he's saying you know it's the <hes> it's not necessarily about like voice as much as it's it's about contextual assistance <hes> and then he kind of walked through the different <hes> examples of how that applies so he says you know you in this is something I've thought a lot about but it's this idea where you just say. I'm really the job to be done so you say okay. I want to plan a vacation or I'm I yes so help me out in plan this vacation for me and the way that the assistant works on the back end is it's brilliant navigating. All of the different APPS and edge was crazy to me listening to that story. Is that it it's very very obvious. That apple looked at that at one time. Maybe when Steve Jobs was still around in said this is the evolution of the APP store because has it you you hear him. Describe in really what it is. It's interconnecting all of the different bits within the APPS <hes> to make a ultimately fulfill the job that you're looking to do and now that you know they're doing it over at Samsung <hes> and I think Alexa conversations was probably pretty inspired by what bixby's rolling out <hes> or at least maybe to a degree <hes> so I just thought it was really interesting to hear his vision and understand understand this the bigger picture of kind of where the guy that really kind of lead things off in this space <hes> his ultimate vision for it yeah <hes> same sentiments <hes> in order to understand bixby Samsung you have to know who had entire isn't where he's coming from..

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

"You know a lot of that was just sort of normal back and forth when you're doing some joint discovery together I love the conversation about him. Competing Against First Party <hes> the native weather weather APP and what that meant for him and how you can still differentiate even a first parties got some solutions in demonisation and some of Viz user numbers. I heard a why of a lot of feedback from listeners really thankful that someone was saying okay. This is what a successful skill looks like on the platform now pete. Did you have something to say about that. Yeah no oh that was a very interesting one especially as a developer in coming at it from probably a similar point of view but it was a little discouraged because he says he's not even a developer and he's writing in Ruby which is some developers are listening using now will will will understand. It's typically not how it's done but they have such a you know the hit hit skill and and to be so successful is really fascinating <hes> and he was really open about sharing that so that was just great here yet is funny. He built that ruby framework. I forgot about that <hes> because his the first developer he hired new Ruby and basically did some sort of weird translation with probably Java or python at the time yeah I mean he probably hired a web developer at the day at the time that was ruby yeah and then so then when he wanted to maintain it he had to teach himself Ruby Yeah. That's the not the conventional way to do it but I guess he's sort of an unconventional developer. Okay third up. We have episode ninety seven Amir Hirsch a he is the founder and C._E._o.. Or Co Founder C._E._O.. Of audio burst and Dave camp this was on your list at the top yes I I thought this was one of the most fascinating episodes that you had had <hes>. I mean this whole concept of <hes> cataloging all of the different <unk> audio <hes> sources out there starting being with podcast and radio. I think is it's paramount to the future of really this whole movement in the reason. I say that is really. I think the killer use case we keep saying what's the killer use case for this and what's the use case but I think it's pretty much staring us in the face right now. <hes> it's audio. It's audio consumption and <hes> you know I think that you look at the the rate at which <hes> just audio contents being produced with all the new I think I heard on that episode. He said something like seven million episodes are currently out there across hundreds of thousands of different <hes> podcasts and so this idea of being able to say <hes> to your assistant. Dan You know Alexa or Google Assistant Tommy about Tesla for the day Gimme Gimme an update on what's going on the Tesla and rather than just feeding you like what's what's trending on business business insider or something like that. It's actually feeding you. Snippets of different podcasts that people are discussing and I just think that's such an important component to this idea of ultimately getting to the point where you have this curated feet of audio content. <hes> that is real personalized you where you have people that are <hes> you're not even exposed to but your assistant is starting to learn based on your behavior that you might like it so you're finding all kinds of different content and I just I think that what Amir's doing audio burst is going to be the foundation in the backbone by cataloging hall yeah so I really like Amir story at a couple of different things I like about that. One is it's not just about Alexa skills and Google actions. It's a different way to use the technology in this idea of making audio content discoverable also as someone who creates audio content..

"Your apps every seems like two weeks. I'd have to update my up <hes> to this assistant model that what it's doing things on your behalf and is a company or developer. You're you're really writing to the platform and and this assistant is kind of interceding in that that's how he explained it in. That's Kinda degree. That's the first time I heard somebody express arrested that way but yeah absolutely yeah so every ten years you haven't user interface change in our latest. One is voice as an interface but also the voice assistance is platforms in so that that is important and I'll say this one last thing in closing about that interview with Adam that stuck with me he worked with his mentor was a gentleman that had actually rolled out a lot of concepts. He was the inventor of the mouse and all these other things he'd rolled out some things and <hes> nine hundred sixty eight that that he thought would be adopted in five years <hes> twenty years later they started to come about he had a conversation he remembers sitting down in Nineteen Ninety nine when the web was taking off in looking at a video interview of his mentor who people are asking why wire hyperlinked multimedia taking off you know the way you thought it would interconnected on the Internet and the ten years later it in one thousand nine hundred eighty didn't know why Jesus seemed like such a good idea. Why aren't people doing it? Well just it took a while later in just talking about that and so twenty five years and I said so what have you learned in one of the things he said is I've learned patients the light of these things if the right idea will come through and I think when we're in the midst of it and and we see where this is going you know whether it's the intelligence amplifier or security or on device processing all those things we can see that that's the right thing to happen but it might take a while <hes> and sometimes as a technical barrier sometimes it's just adoption and people are busy with other things but eventually they get around to it so I that's a that's a great episode. There's a lot of really good ones. I'm I'm glad we talked about this. I don't know how many we talked about your prior fifteen or more. Maybe twenty twenty two but we we've gone way over time. You guys have been so kind about this <hes> Amy why don't you tell the voice about listeners how they can keep track of you and check out the work that you're doing yeah you can follow me on the Taliban's website <unk> dot com or on twitter at I am at talks to bots and you can also check us out on instagram at Tel lables excellent Pete Yeah pitas dot com twitter conversation <unk> curve dot Com is by agency where do some development and I'll be speaking of voice <hes> Voice Summit next month I think along with Damian insult and David Camp sure you can find me on twitter at oak tree underscore and David Camp sure you can find me on twitter at oak tree underscore Dave's <hes> you can also check out my blog future ear dot co <hes> yeah looking forward to meeting Pete at a the voice summit seen Amy Umbrella Gin Seniors at Boy Summit all K- that is great <hes> thank you so much <hes> Dave Pete Namie and thank you voiced by listeners those of you who stuck around listened all the way to the end.

"Don't watch Black Mirror <hes> but I think it is saw something that's rely that similar to this idea wisdom keeper or no the intelligence amplifier and like this trailer that just showed up on my netflix because I was trying to scroll through when the other day <hes> but it is really cool. I think amy that the concept air is just as Google curates the web and tries to give you using agents tries to give you the best answer <hes> it's for what you want. The the idea there is the curation is flat of that in any given time by asking the question or maybe eventually thinking the question but in his world asking the question that it'll surface the right memory Marie and and then you can then stitch together the context. I think one of the most interesting things about it. Is this idea that the wisdom keeper I think is really cool in that. <hes> some other people have tried to do this or have done facsimiles of this us with chat bots around this idea of compiling all the information of that someone is said or thought most types of things and then be able to query it later after they've passed away or you know potentially in this case if it's if it's a real time learning solution it could actually it could actually be you somewhere else or affects emily few somewhere else so you could be in multiple places at the same time. This actually does not seem to be that far out there to me. I think it's thanks reason why from a practical standpoint from an applied innovation standpoint I don't see anybody doing this soon but it seems like a logical progression that someone will want this type of tool and whether it looks exactly the way Brian talking about it or not I don't know but at least portions of what he because he's got a very holistic vision portions of it. I think are definitely gonNA GONNA come. Amyot to final comment there. Yeah actually did see the Black Mirror episode. I forgot what it's called but molly Cyrus is in it and she's a a singer and she has this this <hes> Alexa type doll that she sells and her entire brain and personality is uploaded into the doll and then when something happens to her that you know the the the the information the doll is is very useful and I won't say anymore because there's a spoiler but it is. It's exactly the same concept so it's pretty cool to watch yeah. It's it's funny. I mean there's a lot of these things we just did. <hes> did a thing invoice insider a few weeks ago about the knowledge navigator does around W._W._e.. See this is something from. I think nineteen eighty six from. From apple which is basically a smart display concept that everybody wants today with really smart assistant that can just coordinate and do all sorts of really complex for we're nowhere near the knowledge navigator from nineteen eighteen eighty six that apple is trying to sell apples probably the furthest from it but a lot of these ideas have been out there.

"The stuff on a day-to-day basis and sort of understand where the limitations on the other platforms are did is Google duplex with something that everyone sort of understood stood was important in different so that was last year and that was that was a good indication of the fact that Google has a lot of assets here <hes> that maybe some of the other players don't have at their fingertips so even though they came to the market late <hes> they might be able to catch up in leapfrog in some areas now google duplexes had some issues. I think you know a year later. It's maybe not what it was portrayed to be still significant forget advanced but maybe not as spectacular as as initial is initially tried to lead on so duplex for the Web I think is interesting that goes to the idea that they've got this machine learning and they can apply in many different ways and and I liked and sort of automatically the forms and those types of things <hes> but I will tell you the thing that most impressed me was the on device this year <hes> in partly was the on device performance that the low latency the potential for security benefits fits that we've seen some of that with apple without device with Syria but we haven't seen anything that extensive and the you know having had an opportunity to speak with some of the senior folks in the Engineering Group there who are are different than the other folks that we might deal with on a day-to-day basis in the voice industry <hes> really fascinating what that could lead to over time and it starts to make you think that what we've been doing over the last couple a couple of years as my friend Jan Gilan Might Sane is soon gonNa seem quite quaint <hes> so so. I think we're I think we're we're moving to a place that <hes> we're. We're GonNa see the things that you know. The training wheels approach that we had over the last couple of years is just GonNa get blown away. You know these things really metastasized okay. I thought real sorry real quick. I was just GonNa say I thought it was ironic that the <hes> you know this whole privacy debate because I like you that the whole notion of moving it from the cloud to on the device kind of eliminates the whole well to a degree but it definitely changes the narrative round on Google and <hes> privacy it doesn't they had a great headline about facebook talk his talks about privacy Google just implemented it. <hes> and there were a number of other privacy announcements at I._O.. Were part of that story. I think it was verger tech crunch at that had headlined <hes> but I think the timing of that for them was perfect. <hes> you know we've seen <hes> F._A.. From facebook Julio. And <hes> Apples W._d._c. all with a significant focus on privacy in the middle there we had Amazon announcing some new privacy features voice <hes> deletion of Records and the the privacy center in these things so all the platforms are really really zeroed in on the fact that this is an important topic <hes> maybe a Zeitgeist of the moment that they need to be out in front of and so it's GonNa mentioned to see how much of that actually takes hold as opposed to just announcements but I think it's fascinating all right so we do need to move on. <hes> got just a couple more things to do amy. You talked about something that interested you. SORTA listening back on dozens and dozens of these episodes is the evolution of monetization and you've pointed out episode eleven with that Media C._E._O.. Pet higby <hes> episode thirty five with Stats Shinsegi from dramatic episode thirty seven was facilitation Karanko from the former storyline <hes> which became a vocal and then recently shut down and one of the few <hes> departures from the industry or demise is the we've we've had the opportunity to watch end to end and then I'll throw another there episode sixty without a chick from Alpine day I and previously a voice labs the the sale of that business to head space each of those companies had a very specific perspective around monetization.

Snippets of different podcasts that people are discussing and I just think that's such an important component to this idea of ultimately getting to the point where you have this curated feet of audio content. <hes> that is real personalized you where you have people that are <hes> you're not even exposed to but your assistant is starting to learn based on your behavior that you might like it so you're finding all kinds of different content and I just I think that what Amir's doing audio burst is going to be the foundation in the backbone by cataloging hall yeah so I really like Amir story at a couple of different things I like about that. One is it's not just about Alexa skills and Google actions. It's a different way to use the technology in this idea of making audio content discoverable also as someone who creates audio content..

We're having a little fun this week with a panel discussion about the first one hundred voice by podcast episodes so no this is not Meta voiced by podcast. There's been so many rich insights offered by voiced by podcast guests that it wanted to figure out a simple way to unlock if you those nuggets in case you missed the episodes I also wanted a vehicle to remind listeners about what has been said you may have heard the insight right the first time but if forgotten it's not top of mind this is a way to bring it back up. I also wanted to get some discussion going on some dedicated and erudite listeners about what was said by pass gas and what they thought mattered most so with one hundred episodes to choose from we narrowed it down by asking listeners like you to let me know their favorite episodes why our panelists also weighed in and by my count we discussed today parts of at least twenty three episodes that means it over three quarters.

"Which makes it more challenging some ways to build. There's not a lot of people to answer the questions. Right. And Aaron is not a lot of sample code there. Also makes it I'd say more fun in some ways. Right. It's a wild wild weapons. Yeah. Sounds like what you're saying. Is that you really do need to take the time to learn it. And so there is a learning curve associated. Whereas, but once you understand it. There's a lot of things that make it go really fast. So if you make the investment, there's an accelerated on the back end, I think that's fair. I think that's fair. I think it's I think the investment I wouldn't underestimate if you're coming from. Let's say Alexa, background that the amount of kind of relearning and rethinking you to do because it's quite a different platform and the way it handles and thinks of the one thing that you're like, oh, that's totally different. I've got the really reorient. It's gotta be the it's all the configuration files and understanding. It's a metal language that really is there, and it's like, wow, this is like a simplified programming language to to learn. Well, it's funny because was dock said it in the this afternoon session. Maybe I don't think you were there. But he said or maybe it was Adam they said, oh, you know, objective c. Right. They were talking about the app store needed objective c in order for to do a lot of things you want to do with apps, and they weren't really saying that they had built something, but they're sort of intimating. There was kind of like that for for voice voice assistance. I think there's been a lot. I think this kind of meta language they've written to configure. It is got some thinking around how to think about not only voice. But hey, I is there. It's definitely you can see that. There is a a methodology in a way of thinking behind it. I don't know if I can put my exact finger in what describe it that. Well, but there's definitely a philosophical belief that this is how you should do things that pervades that product. So when will the voice spot podcast listeners people to try what been so my understanding is in early twenty nineteen that's the best date. I would be one of the first hundred whatever. So right now, they're trying to sign up. To build their capsules rights. We have Aisher wrote a couple of them and trying to get you know, when they released their their capsule store, whatever their place market. Okay. Thank you. I'll be an early early developing early. It's just pretty exciting. Right. You know, one of the challenges in the Google and Amazon ecosystem is pretty. Yeah. And you know, I mean early mover advantage, right? And get get some traction air. We'll say that's another attractive thing about the platform. Is is hey, you know, we all discover Bility's easy when you're among fifty or one hundred when you're among forty thousand is a lot harder charred. And so how can listeners check out. What you've done on. Alexa. Follow follow you on social. Yes. The best way would be on Twitter. So at Roger Kibi R G E R K I B B perfect. Thank you so much. Roger, I appreciate your perspective. Thanks a lot. Brett, my pleasure. Okay. Back at the Samsung developer conference, and I got the opportunity to sit down with another developer Pete Haas who has worked with Bixby Bixby Dotto. That is so well, why don't you just tell the listeners your name? What you do what your background is. So my name is Pete Haas. And I've been developing for voice since two thousand five which is nice thirteen years worked in an IB, our company, of course, it was the only option for voice really just follow that journey and probably wants to re came out. It was a really big deal to have that experience. Right. Did that blow your mind? It really did. Because I. It was just something. We never experienced before this open ended thing where it was just kind of democratized to an iphone, right? You are doing all these rules basis. Domes Harz Harz terrible. terrible build something that would do that will cost you a million dollars. If you build something quivalent to what the airline systems were doing at the time, right? So fast forward..

"So thanks a lot further. I'd now do interviews. You will I hear Joe Murphy for vocalized day. I then followed by Roger Kibi who is the winner of the Samsung developer challenge, which we didn't know at the time when I interviewed him happen the next day, but congrats to Roger for that. And then filed by Pete Haas. Who was also a finalist and has really interesting things around product search and basically a store that he set up on. I'm Bixby creating new capsule. So enjoy the interviews and let me know thought. Okay voice about listeners. I'm here today with Joe Murphy, founder CEO vocalized at a and we are at the Samsung developer conference two thousand eighteen San Francisco at the Mosconi center, and we had an interesting morning today in which oh, yeah. Really was. Thank you for the interview. And we attended the keynote session, and let's just get the elephant out of the room. Okay. There was a foldable phone. I know amazing has nothing to do with voice. But while it was impressive. And now we can jump back to sixty. Well, so yes, there was a photo phone and we saw an action if you it downstairs yet. No, I haven't okay, I've got to go. I've got to go check that out. I don't know if they have it down tires out it because it was in that guy's pocket, and I don't think it's leaving his body. He took off. So that that was one of the things that I I pointed out to people on Twitter because I was just like an aunt hopeful phone, and I've been talking about Bixby and all these other things, and I'm like, oh Bixby big launch pretty significant stuff. But all the headlines are going to be about the phone. Yeah. But it is notable. They opened the keynote with Bixby an AI and they're glad you said, yes. And kind of contrast that I think to earlier in the year at the apple developer conference. How voice was such a miniscule part of the show and here Bixby invoice really is layered on top of almost everything they're doing except the foldable phone. Yeah. The foot will foam was sort of like that one more thing the end which used to be a big thing at apple developer conferences, now is like dark mode is one more thing. I mean, it's sort of leaves you wanting more. So did you go to the apple developer WDC this year? I was there earlier this year, and I was kind of disappointed on the lack of Siri horsepower. At the presentation. It was really just shortcuts. Yeah. And that really didn't have a voice component. And we've seen it. I mean, it's not that impressive in. Traditionally I always so originally I came from the mobile phone world. So traditionally Samsung apple are the two competitors that you see going to head with the iphone versus the galaxy. Now, I see starting today shift where who is Samsung's main competitor might not be apple in the future because as they're going more and more towards the expe- smart things, and what really hit me was the multi modal nature of Bixby. It's more than Alexa. It's more than Siri, and it's heading more towards Google assistant territory. Right. And I thought that could make who do you think the number one competitor is now Gogel, but their number one partner for mobile. Who was on the stage. Yeah. Google is up there with only third party on the stage. I believe right. Absolutely for the keynote. So did someone you think sort of think through this strategically and say, you know, we have to reaffirm part of the Android community. So we need to have a what what was he up there? Three minutes. Yeah. Three minute interlude by someone from Google. Do you think that was really the motivation behind that? I hate to think what people's motivations are..

"Welcome back voiced by listeners. I know that many of you loved my interview last week with Adam char about the Bixby launch. It was an exclusive. He went deep on the background with Siri, and with vivid to Bixby and actually revealed something most people didn't know that this whole journey of his started twenty five years ago. So if you didn't listen to the interview, I definitely recommend it because it's it's important around the Bixby story, but you know, what it's important about the evolution of voices systems. And so for me, it was a rare treat to get so much time with him right after they'd launched this product on the floor of the Samsung developer conference in San Francisco while I was there. I also got the chance to speak with a number of developers who've already worked on the Bixby platform and some of those voters have also worked on Alexa, and Google assistant. So they're able to provide contrast as well as some insight around Bixby itself, which was really unique opportunity this early in the development process, and I think something that a lot of people wanna know. Okay. So Bixby is different. It's interesting. How's it different? Because most people already have a frame of reference. So that's what we saw it to do. So our three guests are all working around Bixby, one of them, even the eventual winner of the ten thousand dollar prize for the Bixby capsule challenge that was Roger kitty. But I I we're gonna have Joe Murphy. He's the founder and CEO vocalized dot AI. They conduct performance testing of voice, assistance, and smart speakers. You've probably seen some of his data and the voice about that. A articles were shows what's better Amazon echo, Google assistant in terms of general performance characteristics. How they understand accented speech. So he gives his perspective on what's coming out. From Samsung from a performance standpoint around Bixby, Roger Kibi is founder of voice craft and Pete Haas is founder of conversation curve. Both our developers that were finalists in the Bixby capsule competition, they also have extensive experience building for Amazon election, Google assistant. They offer their perspectives and developing for Bixby and how differs from those other platforms. So before we get to our inter. Views. I want to thank further chief who gave us a five star review on apple podcasts further chief said, quote, my favorite recent interviews are Emerson Sklar Jeff Adams, past present and future voice assistance for this newbie. It's fascinating to hear how much history there is with voice technology, and yet how credibly early we are in this movement to smart voice assistance. I think that actually echoes exactly what dot keet Laos, Adam chyers colleague at vivid. Embiid Spey it Samsung it is early. But there is a lot of history. So that's what we're trying to do. We're trying to tell you the history of voice assistance, voice technology, and what's going on today and eventually where that evolves. So thank you very much further.
