His tank on how he communicates performance and technology it was great to produce a gemstone. this final piece. I'm gonna show you. This is actually just been included in the world's first major museum exhibition for nf teams which were very proud of land. This is slightly different to the other ones myself trunk bow. We decided to submit this piece particularly because it captured something that was more artistic and subjective in things that i really am interested in and instead of just one voice this was actually created from a hundred animus voices on the internet. Most of the voices were gifted through open source of people make recordings and as submitted them anonymously others will found on savas and things that there's no human claim to them. So what you can see here is a lot. More color is a lot more variation. So i'm just gonna play this clip very briefly and then are mentioned. A couple of times really really lose more risk people that are familiar with the space to be able to create what distance just highlight this inch me. Such an exciting and some hans to make tangible space is online. We all saw oo connected but the incident is voss anonymity.

And these these. The unknown internet gemstones sarin pieces like this on there to highlight something that otherwise. You just never could buy thirds. Do that with what this is something. I'm very.

Harry Yeff: Capturing the Uniqueness of Voice Through Voice-Based Sculptures
"Let's get into that a little bit with regards like some of the work that you're doing to actually represent the human voice and its uniqueness. I think this is again. This is a this is an exclusive. Look right now in terms of like how you doing it. But when we i chatted and shared some of this with me i it just. It was stunning quite frankly And it just showed the beauty. I think of the human voice and also the uniqueness. An a bit like a snowflake. There's no two that are like. I think this is really cool. So why don't we pull that up and let's I'll let you tee it up. If you want to take some more before we pull it up here. Yeah i will say one more thing. So when i sites move away from music and just voice in a traditional sense. What i realize is that many people find it all to acknowledge and take time to appreciate the uniqueness of the voice and the function of the houses as a system and its sewing tech world so our relationships a working relationship so loving relationships but also off sense of self so this very interesting phenomenon where you take the times with manager voice and you think about its role. There's this reinforcement of your own identity and that narrative plate into quite a few of tech based projects whether it was creating official twin which i could perform with a second self but then continuations of that voice sculptures so things systems that integrate voice states into full and color. So my previous collaborations have led to a brand new project. Who voice gyms which really glazed on this narrative that there were opportunities for voice centered design and especially with the explosion of the nfc space and myself being in the digital intech off space for a long time. This project is about synthesizing worthies experiences into something very tangible and challenging value and challenging our ideas of what is wasted digital preciousness. How can we have a tech based project that tackles those things but also reminds us of the beauty of avoids

Roger Kibbe Imagines a World With Reusable Open Source Components for Voice
"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 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 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.
What Tools Could Platforms Provide to Help Developers? Mark Tucker Has Some Ideas
"Looked at this tools question a little bit differently. I i looked at it more. Like what tools could the platforms. The major platforms provide to us to to help us. And so i thought if things like i love the fact that i can plug poly voices into alexa and i do have some voice options when i'm doing google actions but i would really like to be able to plug in any voice any voice into the system and not have it be so close so i plug ability allowing anything that A first party Voice experience can. Do you know that the providers can do i want to be able to do in the third party and skills and you know absent. I create so if there's any disparity and what i can do is a developer versus what the platforms currently deliver. I want i want those tools like one of those things you know. Voices is used in a huge way with audio and on alexa. The audio player has been not really changed it a long time. And there's this awkwardness of when you go from a skill into a voice you know audio player experience and then getting out of audio player experience and picking about back where you left off and then there needs to be some smoothness out there so those are some of the things that i've been thinking about.
Allen Firstenberg Describes the Tooling Improvements Needed to Move Voice Forward
"What kind of improvements are needed to move voice forward. I know what i think about tooling. I think a lot about you know i. I do a lot of comparison. So i tend to think what were what were things like in the early days the web or in the early days of mobile development and realize that we're still in the early days of voice development and start making analogies like that. So you know in the early days of web. Go and we were. We were editing. Html text editors and it wasn't until we started to get tools like dreamweaver get systems like content management systems that tied into bigger platforms that we were able to begin to say you know to to really start to get some of the web. The nice stuff out of the web before then it was you know was there and we could see the potential. There was a lot of potential. We kept talking about the potential but it wasn't until we had those tools that we could really start to unleash unleash it so i think that's what we're going to start seeing what we really need when it comes to voice development are tools like voice specific content management systems or the real ways that we can edit. Not just you know the the broad text to speech systems but really be able to edit the audio nuances of what we want to reply with how we want it to sound shape the entire soundscape about our replies and once we start getting those tools and putting them in the hands of people who are not developers and yet still tied in with with the developer systems. Then i think we're going to. We're to start getting to where audio and voice become really really powerful.

Pay us i got in touch with catherine are rip over there for that and said okay. I want to talk to a couple of companies about points. I don't really understand it but this piqued my interest enough in. I saw the vision that they were speaking of. And it makes it makes sense to me.

Understanding User Intent with Openstream's Raj Tumuluri
"We're trying to see how we can understand what the users to intent our goal is as opposed to just literally following what. The user is asking the guessing point. Let's take the case of a health insurance company offering this this kind of an assistant what you tend to their members so the member could could be interested in knowing whether there are are there any court centers nearby so the literal answer for that would be yes that off a note that should really satisfy the constraint and maybe a slightly better You know what would say. They're not three which three geico does nearby ensure them probably on the map but nothing beyond that but if you go beyond that in understand true goal of the end user as to why they asked this question what we call as goal based i log model so optique scientists is actually dr phil cohen. Since you mentioned city he was the original one that that helped write the city from with adam shot and he is so out of bag on the foundation so strong in that space so we are on to the next level which is goal based dialogue engine. So when you ask this question so we kind of understand the plan of the user. The battle of the user is not to merely know Percents nearby but rather like to probably go there and get tested so when that is the case you have to be a good watch losses to insured basically understand okay to find out which ones are closest and then try to find out more information about them whether the renew obstacles in executing the plan of the end user for example if the it could simply say that there are three close by the nearest one is one way but that doesn't have any appointments but the next one these twenty minutes a day and that take walk ins. Shall i get actions for that. And that would be a really powerful thing and this you should be able to do the script fashion. We are not playing to cord and like most other people do are just follow Prompts so that this has an approach and then when you apply that to since pledged up on the insurance domain the policy documents other things tend to be really complex and they're kind of Oftentimes they're legally binding so a lot of language. Therefore you know is is not something that is easy for a common man understand. Why a lot of information could be presenting those documents. You still have to call the are calling your health healthcare payer to get an approval for for the next procedure or next bragged that you're trying to play take or you want to find out why your claim is Declined or your naoko. Claim of property claim in trying to find out what. Your limits are You know whether the whether you have got the plane processed so all these things Required knowledge of knowledge and relationships among various entities present in these documents so one should be able to glean from that The information and and kind of pro dancers To to the end users without requiring in law data staff to sit there and write a lot of ccording to expect these documents so we tied to automate that process

And we talk a lot about conversational design and intense and interfaces and i think a conversation that we want to be having more of is really about the enterprise in about how much just happening With regard voice and conversational interfaces across industries. We're gonna get into that here. I welcome to the stage. My next guest Ceo and founder of open stream raj to minority roj. How're you doing good. Thank you so much for the nice introduction. Well thanks for thanks for. Thanks for joining us and you know in our in our up call to this. We definitely prep with guests. And i think. I was so impressed with the i. Think the depth of Of your knowledge in the space and some of the work that you're doing that we're going to be able to actually talk a little bit about today. what. I think you know for for our audience. Can you tell us a little bit about you. Know what led you to Founding stream and you know what what happened in the lead up to the company Coming into existence. give us that. Give us the backstory. Foley started off with mobility Because we talk like people would need some kind of companion to get information that they need on the move so when we started doing that initial talk was that people were doing lots of text messaging back and forth and that was the only channel that was available to them and the bandwidth was not adequate to do any of chuck communication As a consequence we thought started building. you know what we thought would be the future called multi model technology and we joined the.
Fathy Yassa: Why I Founded Speechmorphing
"So so. Let's go back to the beginning because this company was founded in two thousand ten long before you know before syrian long before Or before apple introduced syrian acquired nature desiree but Long before voice. Assistance came into our home. Why did you found a speech more opinion and what what particular problems where you hoping to solve fantastic question because i love telling that story. As matter fact before speech morphing i had the startup networks that was dealing in mobike consumer video demand and i was licensed content from all over the world back from europe. Any any country you name i would. I would have licensed something from them from the us. From latin america the middle east and it just hit me that while i was watching multiple a muffler content the ma languages which speaks some of them It occurred to me that. Why in the world are we dubbing movies in a higher actors voice rather than dubbing the movie in the original actors. What's good my thoughts in that. Well let me see if we advocated the actor's voice and make them speak as if they spoke that look language via the american actor and we we produce to the movie to europe in france or in italy. Why can't we make him speak. Italian or french in the is the original accent and that made me think about the well. Let's let's take it on. And i looked at the market i. I the markets with multiple providers including dubbing studios and so on and at influence identity the like the right timing and sure enough by the time we should point today. That is the i demand for this kind of application while certainly a love division Back then and i love the watched a lot of movies and always interesting when a voice gets dubbed over in. it's like it does not match right it's it's a great use case in a great example. But you know. From that time and that impetus for kind of moving forward with a with the company you've actually gone into banking or you know other Other industries up. Let's talk a little bit about you. Know what were the. What were the early adopter industries for for the technology speech had developed. Yes so why do we were developing the Points where would act actually at today and being able to service the entertainment industry as we speak prior to that as we were developing the content of the the technology. It occurred to us that the well there are low hanging fruits wide with perfecting the the the the technology for payment which is demanding from equality. Sample that are other markets like the banking like the person assistance someone a chat bots and so on that could take advantage of the quality of that we were able to produce years ago already and so we decided that that at that time we should go after those markets because there was demand actually and customers would be equipped by other companies to provide those solutions. The and of course we can talk about how different out. Solution is compared to others but That's what brought us to the banking in the and we have seen quite a bit of disability from multiple multiple multiple businesses for our solution would actually inactive conversation with the number of those you speak and not only that but also integrated with the likes of genesis media into their services and In order for us to buy out solution to the customer so we are actually out in the market with that kind of our with our technology for the banking industry and other a call center as well as a this assistance provided.

Was used by them for a while so anyway have been invoiced tech industry since the early early days in a way you need to go this far far more back than than nineties but that's got a synopsis of of my background. Well it. I think there's a theme here at voice global and that is a lot of the folks that we've been talking to have been at this for many many years and they've been working to solve a number of different challenges whether it's audio music voice recognition speech synthesis. It seems that all this expertise is sort of coming together and then re emerging as Being able to solve a number of different challenges. So let's talk about you.

Who who at the time worked apple but none of them speech related stuff link lot of multiple multiple multiplication facts practice with his daughter and it was wondering. Why do i have to do this. It's kind of a repetitive tasks. Why isn't there an app that can do this. We asked me because he knew. I had a background in speech recognition So i started kind of playing with this ingrain graded. Some prototypes quickly realized. There's no good solution for on device speech recognition on mobile devices I also knew that there was a lot of progress. in speech. recognition technology would neural networks.

Two million meals out within the timespan a may In july two Older americans who were struggling to be able to food in the pantry and we're able to respond very quickly one of the tools that us from technology perspective is in fact voice As many of you may know we have a platform connected to me which is built entirely on alexa. Google that allows for war a senior with their smart speakers and through with your programs. Where we i identify that folks were in fact. Struggling would be able to attitude into your access to the supermarkets for instance call early in march in april. A lot of these supermarkets started closing The ability to access food is very very difficult and boys. Technology was one of the even always allows identify folks The needed assistance in able to quickly deliver Those kneels to The folks that he did well certainly certainly necessary. Let's talk a little bit about the adoption. So when you're able to put a voice assistant in with a senior that has you know that the really has a need to be able to access services or goods or other other kinds of support. How has that. How's that process going. And how well our seniors able to adopt voice technology today and then let's talk about you know where where we'd like to see it. Go in the future so we were honestly very surprised as as As many organizations we have been a testing boy so looking for ways able use voice in that effort has gone on for several years now in the fourth year of implementing voice technologies in our solutions predominantly for social isolation. Be able to have seniors interact. Not only with advice like alexa also would each other at through voice adoption has been surprisingly so options. Double edged sword right it once seniors learn how to be able to use a device like alexa or being used voice on your phone. We find that that comes their preferred megan up communications and being able to use interact with with technology. We have seniors. Who the only voice they actually here is the voice of Alexa voice of out of google during the day which is which is sad but at the same time luring able to communicate those with with alexa or google. I'm literally they if we wanted to take those devices fact who could never get back so once name the technology it becomes very much permanent. Lives for many reasons right You know taxes. Small for instance state writings and opponent is effective in many ways but of voices certainly freeing from a from a string perspective also Need to use of your hands and being able to just use voice able to perform tasks to get updates to its fourth has been Has been a need of seniors. In recent fly day they thought technology the very very quickly It's also used for medicare giving perspective be checking in on loved ones notifications and google patients in alexa. Allow people to check in under loved. Wants to voice and he be able to tell their stories and once they have that free media i have the worry added devices.

Bret Kinsella on BOT Coin, a New Tool for the Voice and Chatbot Communities
"You share with us. A little bit about you know your your impetus for creating coining the idea and And then let's chat a little bit about it and got some announcements to make around. It is okay all right great so the first thing i would just like to say about bitcoin is. I don't think it is like me. Creating more of a we created it because there are a lot of people that were behind this and i wouldn't have done it if it was just voiced bought alone. That was working on this. So that was that was one thing. But if i step back really the whole idea started with this this this other trend. We've seen among people in the industry. The ones that you and i interact with most frequently. And that's the community voice Developers owners the preneurs the business Business folks that the big companies even and what i notice happening starting about two years ago as the startup fragmentation and that accelerated last year. And so you know. I think about like three years ago we all got together in newark right and so we will together and last year. We weren't able to do that so that wasn't able to bind us together. And there were some other types of activities that we're all binding us together whether it's all building skills or doing something else and that just that just evaporated over the last. I would say two years but it was really cute last year. And so i was thinking that. That's one of the things that we do and that's really the core of your business is community but we are sort of a central gathering place at voice spot for lots of things. So i think i think we do something around community known sort of a side project that i'll do just to provide value. Everybody and that. It looked actually for a fleeting moment like clubhouse was helping with that. 'cause everyone was getting together not everybody. But at least ios people and then later the android people We're we're getting talking but that's not really a community platform so that wasn't going to quite do it And so basically. I settled on two things after talking to people about coin and the voice about discord

I think this is something that could be useful. Awful other corporates absolutely definitely. Let's talk about that. Yeah yeah so we're talking about won't talk about how we occurred positioning chat bots coronation that you i and so what we is. What the chad does that objectives. First of all because we won't talk about automation white. So we wanna be able to lower operating costs of our contact centers right. How can we not talk about reducing agents. How can we juice the unnecessary contact with customers. So that the agent can handle more complicated cases malkani hacks case right right not to provide that to a satisfaction could agents so they're actually doing jobs and also provide a service quality and the second objective is how can we move on any obstacle in the customer journey at preflight and posts so that the customer can can get converted faster and So though so in terms in terms of strategic planning we have created this servicing funnel concept. pham south surgeries the mobile app and also website. Where debate where people actually like a search for flights and do check in a managed at brookings two in the lowest dream The human agents the actual call so imagine like before chat bot defunding goes from the south surfaces and live chat and the contact center agent Handling the car right and the low what gets in the funnel the higher the cost of resolution so the outcome that we are looking at chief by placing a i in the middle of funnel is not about that we want to cannibalize our feature.

I love it so my experience with the with coined thus far as i think i got him when you started it. Maybe two months to hurry to three months. Yup yup and It's been really interesting It's part of the rally dot network so folks want to check out rallied. I oh and then. I think the i think the link would be rallied. Io slash bought Is trying it is but like if you want to learn more about it just go to voice by ford slash. Bought dash goals right. That's right that is that is the catch. All know it's it's certainly in everything certainly end And we are going to be lincoln to that pages while just because it's such a good reference And our idea is that this is a way for us to reward our speakers and we'd also like to announce that there is Will paste the link But there will be a link to page here at voice summit Of probably voice data is last spot. But where you can sign up to be about trader with us and the first twenty five people to sign up for that are going to get aucoin from us For being a part of that. So that's exciting for us we will also be using Coin for all speakers here had voice global that are going to be receiving coin from us. as a token of our nation for participating. So it's a fun way for us to involve the community to reward the community. And i think one thing. That's interesting bread. Is you can cash out about coin. So it's something that if you get you can certainly cash out but you can also just hold on to it and you know it's It's really not tended to be an investment but the the value of coin will fluctuate And the idea is that the more industry folks we can get into the into the coin and using the coin of the more valuable it becomes so it is something that hopefully could could increase in value over time but it could go the other way as well. I'm not guaranteeing anybody one way or the other. What i will say is that we've already seen that. It's sort of a fun. Means of exchange kind of like loyalty programs restarted. This and it can be a game mechanics. there's lots of different things but because there's no transaction fees like a lot of people don't know that they built it beside chain. There's no gas there's no separate wallets. Basically it's the squarespace or a web app. I think that's a. That's a really important distinction. So it's not. It's not crypto currency. So it's not chewing up Incredible amounts of bandwidth for every transaction. People need to understand that when you trade coin. It's like sending a tweet. It literally doesn't have an impact on the environment. I think that's a really important distinction. And and again i the the idea is that i really like how you position it as something that becomes a little bit of glue In our community by and bonds us together. Yup that's what. I'll tell you right now. You said you're going to give away. I'll say that. The i ten people that dm me on twitter at brechin sela. Niu rally address would just go to rally dot.

And and now if you go four to today i mean sonic identity is is everything because audios playing such a huge role in our lives. How much have you seen this industry. Sort of take hold and you've led a lot of this. I mean you. Pioneer this industry in many ways starting eighteen years ago. How's it evolved in in the last eighteen years and do you feel like brands are starting to really understand. You know why you founded on your brain and your core mission. Well i just felt that there was a were about maybe six companies at that time. The twenty five years ago twenty six years ago. That were doing sonic branding intentional audio and it was funny because i found an article Cleaning my office and it was written in nineteen ninety eight and it's everything that we're doing now. It's more than your logo. It's more than you're jingle. it's your call center. It's your voice and was fortunate to work with brands like ibm. Ma like microsoft that that got it that you really it.

The kids Job is job is really to provide kids with the experiences of a dessert why they deserve to have experiences that a tailor made for them on that requires speaks technology which has been built with them in mind. But you're absolutely right. You know we we get inspiration from our clients right. And they're the ones that are now. I think it's we take change the last twelve to eighteen months where we are getting bumped with new ideas of how you could potentially use voice with kids And you know. Education is an obvious one. Another people don't realize just how dependent the education industry is on data points ruins inform how you track performance in many different ways whether it's in beaumont of formal assessment reading practice or instruction right but voice is actually a new category data for education. Because you mean about you know the only real way of capturing boy seat previously is for a human to sit alongside educated. Sit alongside a child on down no tate. What they're saying what we can do. Is we start to automate that process but we can also provide richness of features based around the voice. State is not just wanted to child. Say how well did they said well. We can also vote. What didn't they say is what what he didn't say is in many cases just as important as what they did. Say you know. Where did they make the substitution magic. An in session. And then you can start looking at things like reading property. And how how how indicative is reading prostate of of confidence when a child is reading.

Why Personalized Short-Form Audio Is the Next Big Thing With Audioburst's Amir Hirsh
"Once audio moved to the digital space when podcasting with the online version of radio all of a sudden. We've got a tremendous amount of choice that we can choose content from the we can connect with and i think the audio creators and the users of lost themselves defining difficulties finding one another which goes back to the second point of personalization so now instead of one channel broadcasting for all we have millions of podcasts and audio rooms and read digital radio that is available regardless of the geographical location which it which covers pretty much any topic that you want in a very high quantity highly produced smart way not just a rollout reading the first paragraph of blog on the other hand. We've got now accessibility to millions of users to be listening to be looking for that content right either all through smart earbuds like braque's now helping in growing in promoting the ability to persons to match them to one another cannot operate a non for cannot operate them just streaming. You have to take the the content cut it up into individual items much like i do done to the. Lp's broken up to sink. Pull the mp threes in this songs that will audience does to the full shows breaking up to individual items and then every single user wherever they are through. This smart connection to audience can get that ladies that personalization experience of the bids from multiple different sources. That will answer those twenty minutes that you're in the grocery store and whenever you hit something there is interesting and now you know you. Can you want a dime longer interact. Is that choice. You go into the long form in on the drive back just that podcast all the way to the end of it but if you break it up for the shortfall those bursts of ours and have the ability to grab your attention in those twenty minutes of all your twitter audio version for it. No one's going to do the investigation. It's going to be very difficult to find that comte. That's the percentage station. When it comes to argue. I think in the way that we're operating today.

"I've heard danya lack talk a couple of times about his assessment of the audio industry and he looked at that compared to what he said with the visual industry. He said it looks like based on the economics of the two of the two industries that we value our is at least businesses value is ten times more than we value our ears. But is that because we've just focused on that and we haven't actually taken advantage of this real estate that we have in our ears that people want people use more and more and that were that that could lead to a sort of an explosion and audio consumption and then audio content. Use will wanna save i. We were wrong. Okay we valued think are is more than we've done on our ears. Our research shows that when we interact in even between two human beings or crowd defensively a brand and their target audiences that audio works way better than video than visuals and we should invest in place more and more of our budgets and work. Dvd in technology into the auditory world. I'm happy to see that in. Twenty twenty twenty twenty one definitely. We see that happening actually already in pretty much every aspect of where that comparison had shown preferences to video a think at some point we got very happy to switch from text to video because it was faster it stimulated us better than or an grabbed our attention where better than textual interfaces did but we completely overlooked the way. We're usually communicating in talking all your and we completely forgot about all the experiences that do not want to screen. That would like to be happening without the screen in front of us. And now these days we can see through the bipolarity of podcast social you even of digital radio that people especially after the pandemic here one to turn into multitasking to hearing their content getting their news updates. They're learning new ideas. Just updated on gossip. Take core business doing it via audio. Because that doesn't stop their lives. So i think we're seeing this shift in take investment and revenues even advertising budgets. Moving more and more to trading the majority of our time during the day that we're not in front of a screen that you can compliment than assistant relate to us without stopping lasted doing it. Luckily for us. That's exactly what we do.
