Had a masterful job is calling people. Well lady over there with yellow cert- see him over here with the stop style like oh like people were injured. Put your mess up. Say wear a mask if you're not vaccinated certain places some places some places this thing just like some people making you work there if you're vaccinated stupid because you can't make a sixteen year old sixteen year old little girl tell no thirty eight year old man can get proof that you know. Don't i only want my little world war zone question. I asked all off on which is which is now. Like i don't know sets since friday or thursday when i asked the question but More and more companies are enforcing the if you're not vaccinated You know maybe this. Maybe this roller that for you. Right have so hundred like my company. My company my company announced it My voice company announced it and they're they're giving harvard mandates by lock. October for that ain't like that ain't year also just saying that if you if you don't get vaccinated by the you'll be subjected leeann crazy right. Yes which is enough.

Either gonna work or not the pressure to all the unvaccinated unpack. There's out there and the people that actors how knows a car but none of the people that just say because they don't they don't like vaccine but the people who say They try to make you wear your mask conform. What's the endgame. What's the what is wrong. Let me know. I say i don't get control your mind with a whole lot. Should take some incentive. Exactly what the hell one whatever you want. I do think that there are some incentives to these companies. That are i think. Some risk mitigation involved. So i won't say that. I'm totally once cyber the other..

The dangers of this really is having enough Space buffer between the the the words on either side of the oems awesome. Cut it too tight than it sounds unnatural in in the sample where he goes up. You can hear part of the Start in cut the rest of it out. So you've through this odd. No you can't no okay you have to go over to clean voice dot a. I for those of you that want to and you can probably You have to sign up. There is no free free trial. Could probably do it through my my iphone her p. can find it and clean voice. Dot is is the website. I i think. Lebron the uh-huh uh-huh it's fine unless you say eight hundred of an show clean okay. Clean voice dot a. i. I there's other clean voice companies out there. I don't google just type it in did clean. Boyce i plug my phone and i might get to it faster. Well there's there's definitely other services out there all right. I should be able to play here. Let's see if this works demo of Clean voice technology here. Let me do that again. This is May demo farm clean voice technology before and this is after this demo Clean voice technology. So let's the before again. Listen to that. This is Made them all form Clean voice technology so you got like two and a half in there. And here's the after. This is made them all form. Clean voice technology so it still has left some of the Yeah it did. It didn't get all of it. Play play play the after again. This is made them form. Clean boise -nology so he pulled out completely the first one First one or the second one. Do you think this is Made them oh Clean voice technology. Okay okay so let's go again. Enlisted the after. This is made them of clean voice technology. So little l. I one pulled out the first But it it got parted. Gotten most of it. There's only a little bit laughed and probably what you want tod- actually i don't think you want a hard cut on that. I think he just want to minimize it would be the ideal because then it sounds more natural but dr going to make us here. I've saying but and are definitely sounded better thought. Their roadmap is fix rephrase mid-sentence speech. Such as i think i believe. And then they're doing beta stuttering and then multi-lingual filter sounds such as In any language so and then rephrase fix rephrased mid-sentence speech such as. I think i believe right. Okay that's gonna be interesting to see how that goes. So i was three three dollars or using clean voice with one of your files ten dollars for five files fifteen dollars for ten files so for us forever average shell that's four episodes a month by bucks or ten bucks a month just to take out the homes now. I know there's a lot of people that do a lot of editing will. This is probably just the beginning. I i it worse. But what other editing could they do in here. Well you see the roadmap. I know besides what they have in the roadmap. Is there anything else. that's missing. Well what i would do is for cleaning it clear for using clear. Clean voice one of your files. I would put ten together and upload all ten for three bucks you know make one continuous wave. Bow ten hours got ten a standalone. It is think really needs to be just a feature of a you. Use a good editing tool. You could be a good editing tool usually easily see and once you've edited program a couple of times like acidy or a or even addition you know shannon or a Sound forager you can see the as an arms easily in the wave farm. You just recognize them. And it's real easy to go through pop pop pop pop pop and get rid of them. And so this is a business development opportunity for those editor editor programs or platforms. That allow you to record podcasts. In all honesty you know. I'll be out. Addition has so much power. That i don't even i don't even i could use a dassler his way i added. The addition has so much power. I would not be surprised if this is not built in already into something like edition or himalayas.

Who are you and most importantly. Why are you low e well. i'm jane. I am the founder of hereafter. I am the author of talk to me.

You're speaking my language because as you know. I'm a drummer so anything that's gotta museum. I love it. I love it. Amazing so as i said you were on the voice then you had a chance to to chat with some of the people that were on to ask some questions they asked about hereafter before we get into that. Can you tell us just a little bit about the book that you wrote in the stuff that you that you wrote about in there because it was a really not why is. It is a very comprehensive book. That really tackles a lot of the issues of the voice industry. Yeah i got really interested in the quest to teach computers to talk in the quest to give them a personality of sorts <hes>. This is a few years ago. So i set out to write the definitive kind of general audience. Book on voice computing not necessarily for practitioners but more just for anybody who was curious about like what is going on with siri and alexa an assistant. And what does it mean is the next biggest thing after the smartphone so soup to nuts with the ambition and the book was divided into three parts. I took part one to cover. Sort of business arc of google amazon and apple and everyone kind of battling it out to dominate. This new paradigm part two was the technological aspects. So what's really ended the hood like. How do you get a computer to listen to you to understand you to produce a coherent response and then part three was just the implications of all of this.

After i had to double check that unlike weeds of waste tech company is not here after they are hereafter and so you have developed one of the most exciting companies if you were a participant in the voice launch earlier today <hes>. When the folks from amazon and google asked like hey if you could start coming company would you start and your company was brought up because there's a lot of emotional tie to what you're working on so you're in the voice space but you're and branded as a voice company in terms of your name you even chose to the r. e. and it's really an emotional development to where i would want my father my mother if my grandparents are still around.

"A way for them to feel empowered to grow their business thought it was an online business or whether it was a brick-and-mortar business, but they needed an online presence. Yeah. I love that. I think like you said it's important to really look out for those small businesses can bring us a little bit more about the types of businesses. You sell. I know you're speaking small business, but anything within a particular Niche at all. Well, not necessarily. I mean Niche wise we do we do serve multiple verticals. So good example is we have a client who had thoughts of upwards of a hundred different retail locations throughout the South and so they would be more on the mid-level business size. Although I still consider them businesses because they're marketing department is really only two or three people that's responsible for their entire digital presence to just one single person solopreneurs. Is that really thrive on their digital presence through their website and they're SEO so sorry, but no real Niche. We really serve a lot of a lot of different verticals well, but I mean part of your Niche which is the the small to kind of midsize business, which I think is important to to note here. Can you tell us a little bit more about how you helped these businesses scale with voice technology? Yeah. Absolutely. Yep. So voice technology I think is is a bit of a mysterious term to a lot of people especially small-business owners. Like I can speak from experience small business owners. Don't really know what the heck we're talking about when we talk about boys technology. So I kind of break it down to them by saying okay, the data says that there's roughly 500,000 million total users when it comes to Alexa and Google combined and so people are getting their information more and more from Alexa and Google assistant and so in terms of how we help them scale. We help them understand that if you can build a simple voice app experience on top of Alexa and Google Assistant, you can really give your audience the ability to easily learn about you by creating an Alexa skill in a Google action out of those experiences and then to be very specific. We actually built a WordPress plug-in dead. That allows any WordPress website to author voice apps from the back end of their WordPress website and then immediately deploy them to Alexa skill and to Google Assistant as an action. So that is free to try. It's called The Voice designer and WordPress website owners can search the.

At the health care space really it's about human connection generally especially wins on the patient doctor, side and then even just with the staff that the fact that there's so many moving parts there. Most people in healthcare are just not sitting behind a computer and. Re when of the things that became particularly interesting to me was just looking at those times where people would have to stop. Try to find a computer when in reality and healthcare. Everyone's moving very very fast. And I also was. Really going through a lot with supporting some companies that were developing Emr's and or HR's back in two thousand ten twenty eleven and twelve and the government in the United States was providing incentive packages in watching the frustration with tech for the healthcare practitioners in general in seeing that they didn't have a human connection

Hungry just learn more and I started speaking to some of my media contacts and talking to some marketing brands about voice in about how it could be used a mess face, and just kind of grew inside me this passion and ended up taking no more hours. Now I'm working fulltime plus I think it was just my past life merged so well with this technology and the opportunities that communication and the compensation design aspect a little. Orders really fascinating and exciting. Yeah, and you are based in Australia, and it's always interesting to hear how voices kind of used around the world. What would you say is the current usage and perception of technology in Australia from a consumer and a business perspective I moved from consumer perspective Britain Containment Westbank. Did smart speaker adoption employed an Australia last March and that suggested that we head. Head around thirty percent adoption of smart speakers, which is wasn't time faster than our pads in the US and Europe. Like most other technologies quick to adopt, but it's been interesting because we haven't had a lot of proper usage figures come out so over this kind of past Mumbo true, of Covid nineteen with been getting some quite interesting usage stats come out from the broadcasting radio. Companies, so Santa Crossover Stereo who are major radio company here, the waitress and WanNa quit and December. They stated that the head a million listens to the news on demand, smart speaker, so that was a the trees that had been live and match they put add another series of statistics and civic about head of four, hundred, Sixty, eight thousand listens just much, and that also saying a massive spike in the middle on demand listening, and that twenty percent of that was coming bus, not speakers, so it's been amazing in I. Guess Exciting in this bleak time to say. Say. That people are spending more time on this month's Bacon in interacting with boys and I think maybe that's to do with working from home as well because a huge proportion of zero working from home, so having access to in having a little bit more time to experiment, and do you think that businesses are using it equally as much businesses? I think in Australia are traditionally quite conservative when it comes to new technology, so we've seen that innovative, which has been really exciting, but I would say that the majority of businesses have kind of they wanna see. See what they can to the doing, so it has been interesting over the past couple of months to save their is a greater equitize innovation, so we've been a bit busier speaking to new businesses that we haven't spoken to before and also reopening doors that were closed so businesses a really really busy in that run a fe, or that really quiet, and thus struggling, so the businesses who are really busy looking in a bit of ways to help service customers, so that's where invoice cheaper energy zero and you're your company, Acura. We last spoke before has. Has a really interesting beginning. Can you share the story of how the company started? And how it's evolved with the type of work, it does now yes. Oh, cure! Edgeley started off in the inclusion and accessibility space offender Ray guy, sit out on a mission to help blend fringe years the intimate in doing so he he looked at what was company at currently available in the mock, and realized that it was really kind of clunky and difficult two years these screenwriters that read one time on the screen and you push a button to rate each word and. Right decided that he could do something Columbia he's come from. Big Tick background, and so he decided to not only voted a toe that could scrape websites and visualize what was on the screen. He also figured out a way to translate and my accessible using voids, and so that was before Amazon launch here with Alexa exam before Google launched Google assistant so before those technologies were available even in Australia. Had built a voice engine from the ground up so outtake ecstatic it enables people to deeply utilitarian doing things on the Internet using just voice, so when this master his launched in Australia we saw natural virginity to pivot and got to expect and publish it out today's slots biggest that were becoming really popular outmatch Kim, and I'm able to share with us some of the clients. Your company has worked with and how it's their business so. Coming from an accessibility inclusion background the foundation clients that we've had have been largely government and local. Council and we've done some really fun things with them to help make their resources more accessible, but kind of in the voice spice. We've been working with some more. I. Guess You could say consumer facing brands. One of which is our ICQ Hora Big Motorin Club? Club here in Queensland. They provide insurance roadside assistance, those kind of things and the first project to them was just a little fueled oppress Chica at so you can get lives. Fuel prices that are kind of government regulated lives to use smarts. As while you're driving along, you can say with the cheapest fuel in Brisbane and will tell you the fuel new year. That was a fun one to start with the wind now exploring some more kind of date end utilitarian experiences with them, so that's a really neat project. The another Clinton has been quite active at the moment is the State Library of Queensland. And I think that one's interesting from the perspective of a lot of content sitting in the archives search as you can imagine a State Library I've got content going back to the first settlers in Australia, so the website is used a lot of people who had doing things, lack research, papers, or looking for the ancestry or finding resources for project, so whatever it is so I've got amazing content just sitting buried getting dusty these archives, and so we working with into surface that continent and bring it to life. Make it more interactive using points, and you were telling me earlier. That particular skill has gotten a lot of notoriety in Australia a lot, a press a lot. Lot of users. Can you talk about that as well? I think you're referring to the end Zek JAS. Go that way. Just done the them. We did that on Alexa. And also on Google Assistant. It was beautiful because when you consider that at the moment, people carnage late get out of the house and do what I would normally do and just to give the lesson as a bit of background Anzac.

"Yes that's exciting to have that person on your team and to bring their expertise to it. I want to touch on something else. You said. In a video you did a while back which really resonated with me. Were you said having your assistance. Say Your name was really important to you. You know now we interact a lot with assistance where you're saying. Hey Alexa Hey Google assistant always have to talk to it. But it's not talking to you. An greeting of saying your name would be amazing and I'm curious why is customization so necessary versus having AAs creepy assistant every time from your perspective. It turns out that this customization is a basic human need. The studies of human faces showed that once again. Our Caveman brain is highly wired to identifying people that are part of our tribe. We feel most comfortable with people that are like us in the studies that have been done on. Ethnicity people prefer people from their own ethnic groups when they're looking at avatars. This is just how we're wired. It's not racist or sexist. Oh by the way. Also the studies have shown a slight preference for female avatars rather than male avatars by twenty two percent but the really telling part of the study was there was a seventy percent preference for choice. I'll tell you myself My wife is an artist and an organic farmer. She's kind of the last person To adopt technology when I gave her an an IPAD was She said when I use this but then her one of her girlfriends showed her how to change the boys to a British male voice and all of a sudden she loves Siri and now she uses voice interfaces even more than me so I think it's a telling indicator that we all watch me able to adapt interface to sound like who we want and who we want. I couldn't agree more. I actually have my google maps with an Australian male boys. So we all. It's funny as you're like. Oh something different is unique and exciting but also sometimes something. That's very similar is helpful to you. I think it's something that's so small yet so significant to talk about you. Know they always say like a person hearing their name as one of the sweetest sounds in the world and so having someone say your name in the the voice or tone that you want is larger and more important than I think most people are realizing there's social aspect to this. The studies are finding that when there's an Avatar people are more polite to the voice system. That's not a big deal but they are more polite and more forgiving of mistakes Wednesday. Start seeing the voice persona as an entity like a friend. Then they use it more. They have better feelings towards it and And get more utility out of that voice interface I just find this really fascinating One of my friends was the CTO of the robot company. They're now out of business but while they were still up and running. They looked at the user logs and found that sixty percent of all the conversation with their little home. Robot was purely conversational. People saying hi. How's it going? It's a little bit like me talking to my cat but Unlike by cabinet talks back. Yeah you know. It's interesting to me because I have been hearing studies. That are showing people feel more comfortable to talk to an AI and divulge information than they do to a human being because they feel less judged and in some ways. I think that's incredible. That's amazing that helps people feel less lonely and then in other ways. I'm curious because how does that affect us from a social humanitarian perspective? You know does that affect us as human beings at all? Do you think that that's helping hurting or not really making a difference if we're spending a lot of time talking to an ai or an avatar guess it's better than talking to yourself? I think it's I think it's a basic human need to converse and I know when I'm on a long drive by myself. Having somebody to talk to could be fun but it also could help me keep from dozing off. It could increase spikes safety so I think these are good things. Some of our customers were in the early stages with are making systems for seniors. I think we all know that People that are in seniors homes. It can be a lonely experienced. My wife worked for many years in senior care and she found people that had kind of drawn inside themselves and withdrawn from the world. My wife was in their teaching art seniors when they started engaging in something artistically they would come back alive. That's a wonderful thing. If we can make companions for seniors that they can talk to but also are feeling other functions like monitoring their health and telling. Dr Of things going wrong. I think that's a really useful function. Yeah I think it's definitely helpful. I don't think it replaces the human interaction but I think it supplements the areas where it's needed and where it's missing we're in conversations with some big medical care providers like Kaiser Cleveland Clinic there looking ahead on these topics and I think one of the things that's emerging in the early conversations. They were saying. How can we replace the doctor? But those conversations are evolving to really the doctors strongest part of the healthcare system. What we need to do is take the mundane tasks away from the doctor. Such as an initial patient interview or checking on them to make sure they're taking their medicine and supplementing the doctors skill with an AI system. That can do the more. Menial tasks to make the doctor more effective were able to service more patients. Now you have done a lot personally in your life within this space and now as part of this company do you have any advice for other voice companies out there in terms of standing out and leading the way innovation but also doing it in a useful and usable way with their use cases. What I see in our industry is a lot of healthy work going on. There's also a lot of hyper ball a lot of trends a lot of people following fads that come out and I would just say to people that before choosing a voice system and the technology to build your voice system on really put your scientists to head on and take a look at the hard research that's been done to give you an indication of which way to go as you're designing your systems. Don't just go with the crowd. Go with what makes sense from a scientific standpoint and the last question we like to ask on this show. David to help promote voice as a whole is there a current flash briefing or voice killer? Experience that you're using and really enjoying right now I am. We did something that to me was intensely fun this past year. We had customer conversation after customer conversation where they said David. We really like what you're doing but you need to speak our language. Sometimes language was mandarin or Japanese or German and we took that seriously and worked on extending our system to not just speak English but to speak thirty five new languages and I found that I just love working on language standing the commonalities between languages and how people communicate and they're a little bit different in each country so now our system is able to potentially serve five point three billion people because we speak thirty six languages. I hope to speak even more in the in the near future but I feel like we're off to a good start. We want everybody to have a good experience with a Boyce interface. That's great if people want to connect with you or learn more about what you're doing. Where can they do that? So I'm just David at sapient dot com the website www sapien next dot com and.

Voice Conference in Chattanooga catalyse. It was really an amazing experience. The conference was basically A. Who's who of voice and we Samsung and vivid labs? Were there along with Amazon Alexa. Google Microsoft mercedes-benz some incredible smaller voice companies and some really innovative startups Well the conference. I had the pleasure of interviewing thirty. Three voice developers designers podcasters at all around voice. Curry's Bruce in today's episode. We're going to hear from the I. Sixteen people I interviewed next week will release a second set of interviews without further ado. Do let's go to the floor. Project Voice Conference. I'm with Martin Lens Fitzgerald Martin. Money tell us what you do so bill for over three years now. I'm a voice evangelist. So I helped companies find their way into this new channel. Maybe even a new medium and I do this in Amsterdam so most of Europe is where I work customers like Vodafone. KLM TALL POW all kinds of companies. That I talked to that I help inspire action. He gets simple skills skills or actions going or even help them scale. AWESOME UNWARE HAIR project voice What are you doing a project voice? What do you do you like will here? I am actually sleep tech talking to people about project silver which is my project that helps elderly people yeah get better life uplifting there live using voice technology and it's consorts you. Mike created together with Google in Holland as well as the local AARP and insurer and the government ban and what we found. I'll be sharing this research tomorrow. Is that over. Twenty one percent of the elderly had talked to the vice is already up and running and yeah basically it's a very promising medium medium for them so with the consortium and trying to get customers are basically trying to get organizations to create services for the elderly because Handy Handy. That's great you know. I M super bullish on the elderly invoice because it's not technology they need to learn just talk and and it just works and I think it's one of the. There's such an opportunity for the voice industry to get in and help Italy and have them lead a better life. I it's what I've found with snow already for a year and a half is that it's a flywheel effect I found platforms. They get more users at more of a positive a PR angle. It's not just light bulbs on and often buying flowers knows making people's lives better. There is so much impact their customer or the organizations get more customer service purpose than better and then the elderly whose lives get ab- lifted so and that together it creates like a magic potion if you will and we started now also in Denmark. I'm looking to start in Germany in the UK as well as in the US news. So that's my mission so you touched a bit with talking about your project and silver and elderly but where thirty one of the voice and what do you see it going in next year five years. Where would you like to see it so if I was younger? Now I would steady the anthropology collagen emerging tech. So how do you emerge a new channel like voice. This is my fourth new medium or fifth new medium. started out web did email we all did. Mobil did augmented reality. And now this and so where are we now. And what's going to happen. It's Daily. I wonder I ponder that so on one one hand I think are we still. I wonder are we at the gopher stage of see remember ads. Remember that this tree whip creates are are we at compuserve and AOL live at further was walled gardens which suites the platforms aren't or are we at the stage age. Where you had just Nokia blackberry but no iphone or android and I think we are before the iphone moment of voice and Actually Salihi standing in the sand or that? I think the approach that bixby house is one of the key next generation approaches that we need that is different than almost the APP model. which you find with Amazon with herbals? I'm really yeah following. Let's go on with gigs. Because I think that is very well. Thank you very much. Yeah we're trying to push the industry forward and you know we have very able and great competitors and I think it's all it's all just a rising tide for all going on right now. So Martin. People want to follow what you're doing project silver or yourself. How would they keep in contact with Zilmer with a z dot com where we will publish publish our research results next week?

How RAIN Pivoted to Become a Pioneer in Voice and Conversational AI

"Joined wind rain actually as a consultant and that was a favor to nick and I think coming in that way was important because I really had an opportunity as you understand rain and its assets with a fresh perspective and you know not to mention the fact that everyone loves dish out dirty laundry to a consultant Especially when they're not part of the company and that information gathering was really valuable especially when I ultimately joined a CEO. Because I went into this is wide open at the time that that I joined rain. As Nick mentioned in twenty sixteen rain was doing many things in the technology space website mobile applications and voice was one of them but it really wasn't the focus it was just a small sliver of the business and at the time voice was very much being led by our technology teams somewhat in a silo and it wasn't being approached approach as a holistic strategy creative in tech solution the way that we offer it today there were just so many early indications that voice was going to be ubiquitous rain and had a very unique right to win in this space through our own technology capabilities and relationships but particularly with some of the early traction. We had with the big platform players namely Amazon. Initially at that time so very quickly after joining the company we made the decision to double down to the completely voice. Ai That that was three years ago and we haven't really looked back. And I really believe that that pivot and the ability to be hyperfocused has allowed us to stay ahead of the carbon really maintain income of our advantage in this space. Now what are some of the successes and challenges that making this pivot and to voice has brought to your agency all-star with a challenge. I think think for me as kind of an operational logistic guy him into a brand new space especially innovation has been tricky right so in our previous iteration were building a lot of websites and when I'm building a website I knew it takes about four or five meetings. Close the deal. I the approximate price point. You know of of building a website would be x one hundred thousand dollars. I knew that it would take me X.. Amount of months and I would make up to eighty percent margin when we're in the invasion baker especially building voice experienced. A lot of the things we're doing is we're doing that for the first time. So there's a lot. More education involve or spot. More meeting you'll cycle is longer we're having to get different stakeholders on board. More budgets aren't as clear as they were in the past. Sometimes they come from an innovation group. Sometimes they come from brands. PNL really figuring out how that sweet spot of how to get. The work started how to execute the war how to service our clients. Efficiently has been challenging. Everything we do we do it for the first time. That's been one of the biggest challenges you know on the success side and I'll let you chime in as well you know. We had at agency in our previous existence full of people that came to work at rain digital latitude. We had graphic designers copywriters we strategies we have project managers and we still have a lot of those roles by all those roles. Change Change fundamentally if you're a designer rain in two thousand sixteen well. What does that mean for us? When you now working at a voice company and not an adage dining website and it's been really amazing to watch people involved? I evolve the probably the biggest success I would say the core executive team you bet rain and and down from the top has really evolved. They've evolved their skill sets befall their approach accepting new challenges that playing in a space. That's it's been you and for the most part. A lot of people accepted this with open arms and they become experts in a field. That three or more years ago wasn't even really on their radar so watching the watching people skill sets change has been really exciting.

"This synthetic data stuff or any mature companies you've seen what what what like what's the state of the art they're like hey is it too immature still I can certainly agree with you that this is something that is valuable in yeah like cleaning up podcast episodes by creating synthetic fill in verbiage would very useful I can imagine that being applicable I don't know if the algorithms are there yet or if it's usable yet what's a state there yeah actually been pretty incredible the evolution of the synthetic data market even in the past two years so actually right around the time I joined red point venture I in Monte seventeen we invested in a synthetic voice company called Lyre Bird which was a team of he HD's out of Canada that we're working on mimicking voices of Obama and trump and other figures of significance for about video editing experience even back then it was like absolutely incredible you really couldn't hear the business the difference in over the past two years there's been huge leaps and bounds. I mean if you go into get hub right now actual visual synthetic data I think deep fakes there's two different repose there right now that are the top trending repos on all of I believe they've been there for about two among at this point which is pretty impressive so the technology has advanced to the point that people are trying to use an adopted as we know you know it's can be a little scary we need to create services that can do verification of weather content is genuine or fake starting to see companies that are building identification for that and alerting but overall I would say that the synthetic data market while still early is pretty impressive the work that's coming out of overnight a rei using a generative adversarial networks that's Ganz that I said before to auto generate synthetic content has really advanced and people are using it in production like showing to think about it for training ask for autonomous vehicles or robots and so it's really coming to fruition which is exciting in these markets that we've discussed especially the super competitive ones the cloud providers such as aws Google cloud and Azure frequently have solutions that our competitors to the point solutions on the market for example aws has logging products that you can buy instead of data to describe the competitive dynamics between the large cloud providers and the point solution companies. Well I I want to make sure people know that each public cloud is kind of known for a different aspect of the business so when they go head to head against a standalone start up or a third party vendor reproaches slightly different depending on the public cloud themselves and so as we know aws is known for their computing infrastructure and their broad chronic portfolio as compared to google that really tries to emphasize their a. m. l. technology and then jor that tries to build best of breed enterprise solutions that are highly secure with high audibility because of their historical customer base being big is and so the dynamic that we see between the public clouds and standalone vendors is a little complicated right because you have two different types of standalone vendors we have the the clothes sellers alternatives that can be best of breed or you can have open source projects that are champion and supported by a standalone vendor and I think what you're getting at is really this dynamic we're seeing now between open source project ax and the cloud vendors because there's been a lot of activity over the past year so where some of the cloud I have decided to take open source projects and host them or four Kh version of the original open source project and began offering at us Service on thera platform in this creates a little bit of a challenge for these startups that have this kick butt take names attitude where they've done so so much work on their projects and now they're starting to be used by the public cloud you know it's a marketing sales can be a little more challenging what's interesting is we've seen Amazon fork elastic search we see Amazon..

It's just vanilla ice ING and on top kind of like one of those yogurts they used to have you put that on if they still had like yo crunch if a glow packet with the sprinkles on the top of the icing, and you're supposed to dump that in and mix it up, and I would like to go on record as saying that's not the same because the little globules that were in the icing Buell's were like gooey like it's just it wasn't like a sprinkle in an icing. It was like something that we probably wouldn't wanna know what probably just like a bunch of cornstarch and corn syrup and whatever. But man, it was delicious. And now, it's different. You can't.

And so I've invested into voice company so far both of them. I don't think I can talk about, but. Ironically.

"Right, right. And so on either side of that coin, the research and working on heart problem or kind of shifting to more of the day-to-day doings of a company in the business side of things. What if anything is surprised you about Velvet-voiced, hey, I about applying it to, you know, business situations about voices in general. I think probably what's most surprising the market, you know, if you look around, you know, companies had voice interfaces in their products today reduction, very few of them despite all the noise and excitement around voice. You know, if we take away the platinum companies and is very few other companies avoid interface in their product today, you know, there are some, but not that many. And so I think as a result of that, when we were talking to customers. Earlier days dumping would be going into these meetings kind of expecting customers to be competing you to voice, you know, really trying to teach them. The basics around us and probably found was in many cases they were far more educated. And you know, a lot of companies have been looking at the boys for quite a few years now, even if they haven't done anything about it and so much care on what to buy, you just for them at what the challenges are going to be as well. Like for what situations might not work while these types of things. And so I have been surprised with just that the market is far more advanced than initially expected. I think there are days at a company whose at a case of companies being interested in doing the research, but just not feeling like there was a mission critical solution available yet. I think there's a lot of companies who have done projects even for like several years, but don't ever ship anything on Esa works well enough. And so I think they're certainly was we have spoken to a lot of companies who may do things just to get familiar with stuff to may use some of the publicly available Google API. Or something to to build some prototypes them generally defined, it's hard to go from functioning prototype to something that's reliable enough. You'd wanna putting your product. But still by going down that pass, they learned a lot of scence from. The net result is after their understanding space is much cheaper than would have been otherwise. Or do you think this is headed for for those companies for voices clients or just for the the space in general voice AI over the next two, three, five years. What do you think the landscape will look like? Yeah, I think that technologies are developing incredibly quickly, although I think that the same time the buyer entry is much higher. You know, five years ago you could start voice company for you didn't need to actually have significant hardware budgets, and these days, you know, models are getting bigger and bigger, particularly wave nuts, waving models, a huge and that it's, you know, there is there's a much higher by Tintri at the same time we're seeing the general speed of development is incredibly quick now and in some ways, that's because you know the big off from companies have each of them of thousands of PHD's working just on voice, and that's, you know, accelerating things a lot. It's making more people interested in the space as well in two thousand sixteen. I used to. Chair. One of the global academic groups for speech instances without only academic group. I went to without there was like, the main conference was on and I was chairing upon Lunga asking people about the future voice interface. One of the questions I asked people at the time. So this was maybe two days after the wave Ness system was published by Google, and it was asking people to predict what is you know what's going to look like several years people generally accepted out with intrigue of two thousand sixteen. He wouldn't be able to tell a few talking to a machine or not seems to have come trooper. Another question I asked which got some nice responses to was, you know a lot of machine learning cases for computer vision or even like speech transcription or these types of things. One of the big milestones is always system is better than a human on the out of certain task as opposed to trying to match what him can do some better. So you know, there's certain tests that have been done where transcription engine could be more reliable or more accurate. STAN human likewise with computer vision and various other cases..

"They're focusing on offering voice AI to companies in the commerce space online through an API Peters, joining us from Dublin right now, Peter, let's let's shift gears a little bit and talk about you and your background. How did you get into computer science and a and working with voice in particular? So I think my first exposure to give science was probably just more in terms of being a hobby before he started university. And how how's event universe. Versity I was kind of fishing around for, you know, some really hard technical problems, nuts, encountered voice technologies back in two thousand and two or earlier speech. Recognition was very reliable and Texas speech was incredibly robotic and natural sounding. I think just about point font attracted me to it was that it was, you know, so many people that spent decades of their lives working and yet still carry a long way for them technologies to go. Yeah. And then after I started working with doing a PHD in the topic around research lab, in Dublin, Ireland for some time, then I think just at a certain point we saw the NextWave technologies with earning was was emerging on the back of that. Dan was quite tiered at the platform companies like Google apple, Amazon, this. Well, we're starting to ramp up very large teams focus on voice for the future products that they were gonna have at the time. And I think that's what made was kind of particularly interesting point in time for voices and industry because for the previous ten years to wasn't that. Much change in love the companies that existed, you know, they were trying to sell products to solve very specific problems because he don't use voice technology demands for wasn't three mission critical because it wasn't accurate enough by them. I'm one of the really interesting things when you see all the from companies are going after big way they can do. No small company can really do is they can teach consumers globally that these technologies connect- work in such not gonna affect that end is obviously going to be that consumers are gonna start twenties technologies, not more businesses are gonna want these technologies embedded in various different products, and so had it voices come to be. I was able to find around November of two thousand seventeen some press clippings about your launching. But one of the the company takes shape. Yeah. So that was more product launch company actually started several years before, then I think in this space, if you look at successful voice companies over time a fairly consistent. Companies will start, you know, the focus focus on building that core technology. And then outta later days probably typically most after they raise adventure out, and then the really try to bring that court technology market. And so that was that was the path we intentionally went on because yeah, I think it was just as clear history of recipe that works in this face. I'm generally developing coretec -nology is one of these situations where just takes a certain amount of time and even sees some companies ramping very large teams and trying to build a technology credit short timeframe. Because if so, many heads, generally it still takes just as long as would have had a hard hyphen because you know, in in certain cases, outing heads doesn't speak things up right now. And so we intend to, you know, we started up. We kept team small focused on very kind of core problems got the main infrastructure in place than in February. Last year we raised our series around from flowers partners in Boston, which was a nightmare around. And I'll billion ablest ramp to company and go from being a small team working on some really hard technical problems at to being the company that VR today where thought forms and plays customers are using hockey with all the aspects guess you'd expect around and a company as opposed to team just working on a heart problem..
