"Can you share with us. A little bit about you know your your impetus for creating coining the idea and <hes>. 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 <hes>. Developers owners the preneurs the business <hes>. 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 <hes>. We're we're getting talking but that's not really a community platform so that wasn't going to quite do it <hes>. And so basically. I settled on two things after talking to people about coin and the voice about discord

"The two? And why are they important for brand yes good question and I think partly reflects the way that the space is moving and the fact that as you brought up the stranger things action was recorded early in the life cycle of voice as it stands now at least the voice properties that are most commonly used with Amazon and Google? When people I got into the states they were just playing and they were figuring out ways that they could build a cool brand experience and part of the rewarded not was just a PR that it was generating? You still had to do all the work of course to drive awareness about that and discover ability but a lot of it was done in tandem with larger campaigns moving forward people are starting to understand what people features they can unlock the technologies improve to be able to enable those features and you're starting to see brands come back who are educated about what's possible and want to understand what our wires and the deeper sense so it's not just. How many impressions can I drive? Or how many conversations or messages were exchanged people are starting to say? How can this Dr other areas of my business and plug into the system? I think that Disney his challenges a good example of that. This is something. That's meant to be an evergreen engagement that continues to drive with a catalog. That's evolving over time and to other parts of the Disney system. It's one of the first skills that's unlocking a playlist directly from it so you're not just playing trivia game about the catalog and hearing notes fun quits. You're at the end of it or at any time. During the skill you're able to the Disney hits challenge to open up playlist and go directly to that and actually start streaming the music. That's just a shallow example of how you can think of your brand as a digital ecosystem and start to use as an inroad or a way to navigate through other places rather than just a standalone experience. Yes yes yes. I agree and I think you're right. I think that's great that it interacts with the music and works with spotify were so their platforms now. Caitlyn as the person who leads a lot of the marketing and Business Development on your company? How do you get people to use these skills? Like what is your your striking about. Pr And marketing that something. A lot of companies struggle with in general but definitely when it comes to now boys. So can you share with us? Maybe some things at the grammys dead or stranger. Things did or Disney did to get people to using these either one time or continuously. Yeah this is a really good question. I think it's One of two challenges that are really facing the space right. Now of course discover continues to be an issue but also motivation. How do you have an R. Y? On not experience it could be of course that value is in the engagement on what you're trying to drive but some people are also looking for ways to fund not so those are my challenges when I talk to people and had some really very interesting inquiries about the types of skill action somebody would make and some of them were like we want to help other people. Discover our podcast. This is definitely not a discover ability to all you need to absolutely run a campaign tell people about it because the the platforms were not built to be highly searchable. Honestly it's still easier to you a screen based device to search thing for deeper catalogs so yeah brands who are using voice for other things whether it's search or shopping or driving to different other channels they have to think about whether in rotations will be and how they're going to educate their consumers. Just start invoking. Those boys OPS and so part of it is rethinking what you're sonic rand is or how your brand exists and a voice. I East. So are you naming her invocation? In a way where it can be clearly recognized. Are You thinking about keywords? When you're like designing all the product page and such all that's really important just like the days of mobile and how you would approach these but then you're starting to think like what is my brain sound like and my casting. The right personae doesn't respect the rand all that's like going into it as well and finally you built a great experience and you feel like it's a good representation of what you're trying to get out there you now have to go out and tell the consumer like what they're finding and why so different thankfully. I come the toys backgrounds hard. Really good at playing really goes up and try to find things and see if they're going to resonate with the consumer. Social media is kind of my Go-to I'm very much grassroots market early be scrappy so designing campaigns that go to where your consumers already playing who might be the type of person who would using voice options. Great I think about other audio channels like podcasts. And even radio places where people are already listening to audio content as places where you could probably discover new audiences and bring them over to your space and there is paid advertising. That's possible of course and then the last thing with any new technology one of the biggest hindrances is going to be the adoption of the platform itself so if you can figure out a way to educate people about how to use it and why you still have to do some of the work for how to actually get on the platform versus Jesse experiencing South while. They're on the platform. You can't assume everybody owns a mobile phone and knows how to use this year. Alexa on it so I love to make trailers and to post them on Youtube or on social that. Show exactly what the experience is so people can start to put themselves in the shoes of someone who might be using those and to think about what it's like to adopt experience and use it. Yes very smart. I agree with what you're saying. I like the idea of trailers. I think you're right. There needs to be more education of how to get on the platform. You know it was funny even myself. I was talking to someone the other day I was not at home so I didn't have my Alexa or Google assistant device at home. I was at someone else's house but I wanted to listen to a flash reaping on Alexa and I did not know how to do it on my phone so I had to figure out how to listen on my phone when I'm not near my Alexa Device. So even ourselves. It's really making sure we know how to get there. How to educate people how to troubleshoot. So I'm glad that you are bringing up that piece. The last question we like to ask on this show as we like to help promote voices a whole besides the ones we've mentioned either from your company or elsewhere. Is there a voice skill or experience that you personally use and are enjoying right now? I have to say I'm kind of basic when it comes in previous usage like I use it as a utility more than anything. I love being able to navigate with my voice when I'm driving which I often on one one going up and down the peninsula in the bay area and I really liked being able to open up music or to check the weather when I'm running around getting ready for the day so in some ways. I'm just a really basic consumer when it comes to that I do like playing games as well and I always read the different briefings from Amazon and Google on. What's new and and try out like one or two things every single week when I can and I like seeing the things that people are tackling. The it's funny with marketing a lot of times you come back to these tentpole events that are common to every consumer and that's like holidays and You know the weather and everything that people are experiencing cohesively and and try to tap. Install common element so like seeing how. They're seemed as always fun for me. I think my favorite experience that we've made is probably the audio adventure with the wiggles. Actually and that's a google action. I fully screen experience so it uses the candidates. Api and we worked with the wiggles to script out in adventure that it helps them go along and adventure to get to the wiggles concerts so it imagine an adventure where you're going from one scene to the next thing you get to choose which way goals you pick up which would be friends and you hear a really fun song which is what. I love about the wiggles and you get the end and a concert starts. You feel like you're part of it and it's just amazing of audio really immersing yourself and emotional connections just something. That's their challenges. Your imagination and it makes me feel part of something bigger in a way that maybe TV or passive watching experience doesn't so I think it really shows what the experience was way for technology can do and what I love about working with and consumers for young children. Is that a Lotta Times. You're capturing a moment that's shared by the family and so the wiggles does a good job of designing experiences that the parents can sit back and be part of that experience much like they are whenever the Alexis present in the home file of that. I mean everything you're talking about definitely lives up to the name of the company worked for creativity ink Think you guys are doing some tremendous things and it's great that you have this background in toys because it showcases higher kind of leading in the creativity space. What you're doing with invoice so if people want to connect with you or learn more about your company or what we talked about. Where can they do? That can't live at the creativity. Dot Com is my email address and always happy to meet New People linked in for sure for same Caitlyn last name good outcomes and then our website is a great place to see some of the most recent projects that we hosted.

Women In Voice with Dr. Joan Palmiter Bajorek
"Have a PhD in field of speech language technology. I'm a linguist researcher. I was getting my PhD at the University Arizona. And starting so I. I think a lot about multinlingualism and multi modal and kind of the future of voice integrated into everything And I was presenting my PhD research domestically and internationally at academic conferences and the tech conferences. So I spoke at the first voice summit back in two thousand eighteen in Newark New Jersey. So I went there and I was presenting the same research right But the demographics in the room and the large number of White Milky No. It's just like I seem Silicon Valley. Hbo Show but like there's something to be in that room. I just the phrasing uses like I couldn't be complicit normalizing behavior of what I was seeing around me and so I went home I was like what am I going to do? What are they GONNA do Of course like immigrants basement and Decided TO LAUNCH MINIMUM. Boise months afterwards that that was August twenty eighteen and the rest is history now. We have ten chapters internationally in seven countries. I think three in Beta some talking about London Madrid Seattle. I'm GonNa Forget. Overtake them really fast. Just huge international community. Talking about gender diversity invoice tech celebrate improvise empower is all about. I like that. Celebrate amplifying empower. I love that and I think that that's good for. I mean yes women but I think just any anybody that doesn't have a representation of themselves out there to look at that so so important I have Just for an example I have A bunch of Korean friends that They got so excited. When parasite when parasite gleaned up at the Oscars because they didn't have a representation of themselves to like you know strive towards like it was just the yeah so anyways. That's really that's really to women and boys we talk a lot about intersectional. Feminism which is. Just you know big jargon words but talking about the intersection of where you're coming from and the privileged you bring to the room. I think similarly to your story about your Asian friends. One of my friends is Latino and he came to and he's like I love woman voice. Women Invoices Awesome. I'm also a Latino in voice and I'm ushered in other ways and so I was what I said to him as an ally to you and you can be an ally to me right. We can support each other in different ways and hope that the narrative that everyone can I this narrative like join the party like we we see the world in such a a new on way and I really hope that I do see change. I don't know if you see change. But last year I was pinned by two very senior. Hiring managers were like coming to consciousness and saying like. I'm about to hire someone in. There are no women on the list. No single one is a finalist candidate for the super senior role. Joe What should I do like? Oh Wow I can't fix the system but I'm so glad you're coming to these Well I mean that's the first step I mean 'cause Until you realize you can't really be searching for the diversity if you don't realize that there is no diversity because that's a real thing to the you just don't realize that the whole room is white or you know or it's all male I think I I am seeing change definitely. I'm a composer and songwriter. And everything I didn't when I graduated college in two thousand and three I was the only female the graduate. The composition degree At a very small school but I was the only female and then For composition and everything like that I had a handful of women that you know. I associated with that. I you know I wanted to aim that that level but really it was the male perspective for composers for a long time and now like with a home going to say her last name wrong. I'm going to say but with Hilter winning best score at the Oscars again the Oscars For joker that was so empowering that was so cool to see and I was even excited for parasite which I will never see. That movie. Can't watch horror movies but I was so to see that because they were not expected to win. I don't even think one of them and they just cleaned up. It was insane so I think definitely there is change happening And I I don't think that we should be worried about the speed of change but applauding it and going cool. Because I don't want to you know elect a woman to something and I disagree with what she stands for it. You shouldn't you shouldn't like want a woman to get ahead. Just because she's a woman you should want them to get ahead because you agree with where they're coming from and that they are the right person for the

"Really helpful when people say. Why do you need that when you and I talked about this project voice that you know if you get using that everyone else has you know? It's hard to differentiate you but they start to hear your sound over and over again. They're going to start to associate that. Hugh in your brand or your company who it is kind of a long process just as like you said just like your logo. It's your audio logo. Yes exactly. It couldn't agree more. Let's go. I forgot I didn't forget I knew that but I you know clutch. Yeah she did an incredible job and I remember sitting in the audience at that opening day voice summit and having the band playing the music and and people singing along and it just felt right. And that's what Sonogram does. Yeah it does and I know for Pete Sound for Voice Summit you know. He really was about. He wanted that communal feeling. And so those woes really fits with what they're about so it's amazing how we can do so much with music and for people that that's their thing it's really great to hire people like that because they understand how to pull a motion through sound. It's a really special place you know you're doing so much with technology and boys podcasting things of that nature. I'm curious how you use voice in your every day and at work like how do you use Alexa? Google assistant or big fee in your office you know in the medical field or even at home with your family. It's a good question so it's tricky to be perfectly honest. Although I've got all this stuff about voice I health that side of my bread. It's very hard to implement that stuff at this stage in an actual office practice because we haven't actually solved challenges with security and privacy. We haven't solved the problems with security and privacy there and so it's very hard to implement those in an actual office practice because that's all those are very valid challenges and concerns that we need to deal with what I am very interested in is using Alexa and these other devices as educational tools because a lot of what we're doing as physicians as healthcare providers right now is providing education. There's so many times when a patient that I see has a very typical problem and I'm answering a lot of the same questions. Saying a lot of the same thing so I think even now without having to worry about necessarily privacy security there are many roles for the smart assistance to be able to answer those. Faq's were educated patient or patient to tap into for example. Eight flash briefing about diabetes at home. Those are the examples of the low hanging fruit right now for medical applications. Obviously it's GonNa get a lot more interesting beyond that as we sort out some of these challenges at whole what am I doing? I'm using Alexa for routines for giving me my when I wake up in the morning. What FLASH BRIEFINGS? Whether traffic all that kind of stuff. I use it for home automation in the home. Like kids playing with Games. Those sorts of things. I do like to play around with it using some of the other tools out there just to kind of experiment and see what kind of skills that I can create. That are that are interesting. Some of them are not out there publicly. You know what really excites me is the potential power we're going to use voice assistance in the home and how homes are going to become little. Almost like satellite medical clinics as technology gets a little better and we will start to talk to our devices in the home and that is going to be our entrance to the healthcare system. Which is I think something. That's coming down in the not too distant future. Yeah there's definitely companies working on that and I think that will you know be able to save time. Save money. You're not going in for every little thing and I think it will be super helpful for patients and doctors as a whole I would imagine. Actually I can see the day. Where is already you know? Amazon's put these kids already that they're getting into the healthcare space but I can see the day where you wake up and say you're not feeling well you talked to your Alexa device. And through the analyzer. Your voice or with some of his vocal biomarkers. It can detect that. You're not feeling well so it already has an idea what's going on. Then ask you some questions like a doctor would and it may come to the conclusion that there is a certain probability a higher probability that you might have. Let's say strep throat and then it asks you. Would you like me to order a structure? Where you it gets delivered to you by drone use. The STREP Test Alexa. Talks you through how to do it. And of course it's catch the It's an Iot device. It analyzes the results. And then it says you know what you need some antibiotics just through history with you. I know what you're allergic to orgies anti-biotics and they get delivered to your home through one of Amazon's pharmacies and you have your home and you've got your treatments. That's where I think we're ultimately going which is really really interesting. Yeah I mean that's funny. 'cause you're like oh it's a little weird soul scary is they're not used to it but I think it's very exciting and I think you're right in the future will become very common overall. I think so and I think for people that don't necessarily have access to healthcare system or too expensive or they live in a remote geographic location. These devices are so inexpensive. Now we know what the market penetration of them that. This is a way that actually people I think are going to be able to access healthcare system when the otherwise weren't able to and I think that's another real benefit I mean. I know in candidates different than the US that that could definitely change our healthcare system from insurance as a whole chain which I think a lot of Americans would be very excited about. You're right I mean there are differences for sure between what's going on in the US resorts on Canada but overall the healthcare system is so ripe for change and I wonder voice. Technology is the thing that is going to be the real thing that causes that change once for all. Well thank you so much for being here. Where can people learn more about you if they WANNA connect mentality? WanNa connect I if they want to learn more about the Canadian side of things then Alexa in Canada dot CA is by blogging. Podcast is up to say name. My flash briefing is a voice in Canada from the medical perspective. I have a N podcast voice. I health dot com and I have a voice I health suite a flash briefings that we're building out similar to what it was talking about where people can tap into certain for certain diseases or illnesses and interested in sort of the marketing side of things. I have this free course. Flash BRIEFINGS FORMULA DOT COM. And of course I'm on twitter instagram. The whole bit under unusually everywhere as Dr Terry Fisher D. R. T. E. R. I S. H. E. R.

Keri Roberts - Takeaways from 100+ Voice Technology Podcast Interviews
"So we're joined here today by Kerrie Roberts Caritas a little bit about who you are and what you do thank you dave. I'm so excited to be here so I like to say that I am a brand. I'm a marketer and I'm a community builder So I work for myself and a company called Brandon connection and one of my main clients is voice summit so I help them with their podcasting strategy as well as lead their marketing for their big event. That'll be in October. That's awesome so I've gotten to know Carey. She actually brought me on the inside voice. Podcast that's Sort of like where. Our relationship started and I just think that it's so cool. Because outside of this podcast that she does she has her own podcast. And then I know that she's the host of another podcast. So podcasting is sort of in her life blood and I think that I've learned a lot personally from her. Just the way that she goes about it in post production in the way. That she disseminates podcast. She doesn't really like thoughtful in a meaningful way. And I think that it's incredibly It's a it's a really good way. I think to to build a network and help to connect that network. I know that's kind of a big theme for you and so I'm curious like You know I wanted to bring you on to talk about your experience on the inside voice. Podcast go through some of the different episodes that you've done in the different guests that you've had but like as you've gotten immersed into this world with like so many of us kind of have In you've done it as like being this conduit of Understanding like who people are different. Facets you've actually probably gotten a really wide education you know into the whole voice landscapes on curious like from this first year or so that you've really started to get involved into the space would have been some of your like macro takeaways You know in in things that you've learned since doing this. Yeah well again. Thank you for the kind words I appreciate it. I've been personally podcasting for a little over five years. And I took over the inside voice podcast and leading their strategy and hosting and kind of running it as their form of content marketing and one of the things that Pete Erickson the owner of waste summit that he and I share. Is this love for connection and community and to really showcase the diverse community that we have in voice technology and when I say diverse that means not only male female Or whatever gender you identify as Lgbtq Q Different races different backgrounds but also different elements within voice. So you know it's not just developers or CEO's it's linguists. It's audio engineers. It's voice artists It's startups it's conversational designers. And so my job is to really make sure that we're hitting the gamut as best as possible And I think we're doing that. I think we're doing that. Not only in the podcast that the events that we host And so for me. I personally love hearing what people are passionate about. What makes them great for every episode? I really tried to highlight them as a person first and foremost And then the work that they do within voice and so. I think you know one of the things that I've noticed kind of overdoing that podcast for the last year or so Is that you know first of all. There's so many people involved in voice and that it's important for us to learn the different things that they're doing And so within that also comes the importance of inclusivity with invoice. You know talking to people and saying okay election. Google tend to be a female voice when not everybody wants to hear that or identifies with that or feels comfortable with that You know when you're creating conversations are you including people in how they speak within their culture within their language translation is not always direct word for word. It's also the vernacular and how do we interact with people Are you including people who have disabilities? Who HAVE SPEECH IMPEDIMENTS? You know that I think really thinking about voice in a broader term And really the big question is how do we include the whole world and make them feel leg? They matter and that they can interact with voice. on a global scale. And that's that's not an easy answer but it's great to see that people are doing their due diligence to work on that and I think that's probably the biggest takeaway from the voice standpoint When we're looking at the other side from the consumer standpoint The challenge there is security and this is something I think people have heard about for a long time Of course people talk about well You know your mobile phones already have enough information on you. Are you worrying about Voice But you know there is concern when you're asking people to use their voice for passwords You know how easy is it for somebody to hack into something to take your important information? Your data your privacy and there is a very high level of concern from a consumer standpoint of. How are the big companies doing this? How are Amazon Google and Samsung Keeping the data protected but also every single person. That's doing voice if you are a startup or you own an agency or you're doing it on your own you know how are you proving to your clients and consumers that you're keeping their data and their information safe and it won't get hacked into. Yeah you've touched on a lot of different things there. I think first and foremost it's it's really cool that Because that is something that I've noticed about your podcast is. It's really really diverse and it's just like you said it's not necessarily like just the people but it's also their backgrounds in their interest. Because I think that one of the biggest takeaways that I had when I went to these different shows like I went to the Alexa conference which is now project voice and then I went to voice. Summit Was just a wide variety of different people. Like kind of coming into the space for different things just like you said like people with a linguist background developers designers. So I think it's so cool that it is like this melting pot and I think that the most insightful I think findings that people have come across. Have been when you have like this. Crossover like you have. People that are applying everything that they know in the linguistics world. And then you have the conversational designers that are coming in and when they're all starting to fuse their knowledge together. I think that's where some of the most interesting thing has come about. And you know going off of the point that you made around security and privacy. I think it's really important that this is something. That is a really centric to the whole conversation. Right now I think it's top of mind that a lot of people are realizing that like I think a lot of the people that are attending. These kind of conferences are They share the same sentiments. You know they are concerned about Where's the state of going? What is this data going to be used for? Are we comfortable with sharing the level of this data like I still go back to a the first Alexa conference that I went to where Brian Rahmani was speaking? And my big thing that I kept coming back to like. He kept saying that will need to have these like really deep relationships with voice assistance in order for them to be more impactful So therefore they're going to need a like a deeper level contextual understanding about the user but I feel like that's that runs counter to trust and security so like I'm only going to be able to. I'm only going to be comfortable with sharing the sensitive information that would make my voice assistant In even better assistant if I if I trust all of that so I totally agree with you that I think those are really critical pieces like as the formative period of time while technologies being built so I wanted to Because you've done so many podcasts. In you've brought on so many awesome guests. I thought that what would be kind of fun to do. While you're on here is to go through some of the different episodes that you've done In just go guest by guest in just have you share like either a key takeaway something you learned from that person or just something that you really enjoyed about that person in the conversation are you. Of course I would love to do that. Okay so I know that you shared today on on linked in or twitter. I saw it somewhere about the media people and so. I've had a chance to meet Claire Mitchell and Patrick. So let's start with Patrick. I know that you've done an episode with him. Patrick Gibbons GimMe something from that episode. Yeah I think you know I just WANNA say Intermedia. A lot of people got into voice because of Gary Chalk myself included the sub. Where I I heard about it. And there's so much hype about Gary and he's an amazing person but I think we really want to that. The people on his team are equally as amazing an equally as passionate And Patrick Really he's excited about stuff on the go here bowls a lot of the space that your in specifically And he also Kinda came from an artistic background and I love that he is willing to kind of reach out and say. Hey if you guys have questions like let's collaborate. Let's interact and so it's not just about okay. We're Bainer media and we're going to do our own thing it's like. We WANNA work with everybody and so I love that he kind of mixes his artistic background his ability to connect with others and then his personal passion within boys about how. It's going to be so much more on the go how we're going to be using curable and what that's going to look like
Witlingo - Creating Toolsets for Voice Creators of any Skill Level
"All right so we're joined here today by Brielle Nikolov Brielle tell us a little bit about who you are and what you do. Hey Dave thanks for having me on So aw I am. Elite of product marketing at wit lingo. We are a Washington DC based startup and our goal is to make it possible for anybody organizations companies or individuals to super easily build out of presence on the voice web so whether that is managing community ethnic communities events or You know if you have a brand that you would like anybody to be not able to access through the voice channel in addition to all the other digital channels like YouTube twitter We our goal is to make it so anyone who's technical earth anyone who's nontechnical can launch it and manage it really easily. Yeah that's awesome awesome so You know for those of you that are have listened to my flash briefing before Future ear radio. I use lingo. So I use their tools walls To create my flash briefing basically take the MP three file drop it into their platform. And then they'll disseminate it for you Onto two Google assistant onto access. So it's a really awesome tool and that's largely why I brought Brio today is I've been Tuned into whittling going. What they're doing and I think that you know with any new technology paradigm You know whether it be mobile really emerged and then now with With voice computing. One of the big things. Initially that is so necessary in order to really jump start the whole ecosystem and and get things going are the tool sets in the platforms for the publishers. You know making it super easy to create All the different experiences and so with lingo is Really the pity of of one of these different tool sets in platforms arms that help publishers to create these things and just like she mentioned. You know for me. I don't have any experience coding. So I don't have a background in that but even still You know a nontechnical person like myself is able to use these tools in a very very straightforward so so Braille wanted to start there. You know 'cause I saw you speak at the voice summit in July. You gave an awesome talk about this whole concept but why don't we talk a little bit about At talk in the gist of it. which was sort of like this idea of democratising the production side of voice experiences? Sure so when you think about how we've all been consuming content through the Internet and the connected did web you have this interface right that anybody can read content honor now look at pictures or her videos when it became possible for anybody to start contributing to the web super easily. That's sort of win. Its its power was fully unlocked so if you think about these different platforms now that were accessing voice. I content went on the true power of the voice web believable be unlocked once anybody but he can you know super easily contribute that native voice content to it so and that is it's different than native web content right because when you're consuming something visually it's it's not automatically eh easily consumable through audio content. So they're they're of of course are going to be ways that we can take content from the the digital web and make it make it consumable through the voice channel but but the way that we're sort of approaching it at with Lingo is such that we want content that was originally created and originally fit for that voice frames and and make it so anybody can a created and then be manage it and then their end users their audience will be easily able to conversationally surf through it and consuming.
Voice Education with VoiceMasters - Kickstarting Careers in Voice
"Hello and welcome back to end sideways. podcasts I am Kerrie Roberts the CO host actually one of my co host is also here. So we're here today. With James Poulter her aunt's gotten Susan Westwater with a big announcement about voice masters. That's right so I'd love for you to start with telling us how you guys decided to all work together. Gather in the first place before you decide to tell us what it is so we have been talking to these guys for a long time now friends through the community over the past a couple of years voice summit and in both of our businesses respectively affects lives in that pragmatic. We've seen that. There's a real need over the past really over the past year if People who are maybe smaller medium sized businesses all the people that are pivoting that career invoice all for people are starting out a small team but they need to build the use case voice in their business really upscale and so with these guys walking on their fabulous voice strategy book which has just come out which is really exciting and the work that we have been doing really focusing on strategy work with clients in the UK. We thought that we could offer something. That is much more powerful bringing everybody together to work on something like voice masters which ages I online tool but in live and in person mastermind program and the other and it all came up with twitter. The J. J. P. had a tweet responded next week we had a conversation. So and what did the tweet say. I think we were looking for people to help the hell in the spirit of the voice community it was. We can do this so much better together trying to compete separately and so it makes so much sense to take experiences of JP Jen Susan Cain and combined with hours to come up with something even more powerful so the program itself is going to run over six weeks lodging the end of February. I'm will give people the opportunity to essentially get one. She served as well as well. So Group calls and I like engagement sessions with all of us plus the rest of our team and also some special guests long. Why importance as well? So we're we're really excited for what this could mean essentially people that was starting the through invoice. So it's more people want to start their career voice or for brand a smaller company. That wants to start a voice skill for themselves. It's actually both and so really what we're trying to do is activate the business community and help them understand what the opportunity to voice represents what the value is why they need to start busing now which is really a lot out of the conversations. We've all been having over the past year with right so if we can go through and almost productized that and actually create a place they can go to learn all this then they actually can the the internal champions and actually talking to their CEO's or CMO's and everyone else to make that actually happen. So I like to think of this as some way that we can actually help the entire community deep benefit. Because it's going to help the platform people. It's GONNA help Amazon and Google. Let's get help. Everyone copywriters and so by activating the business community. We're hoping that we can actually shortcut what and get happening happening faster versus waiting on it just kind of naturally I mean I like to think of is the fact that if we will starting out moving ourselves my previous this job roles into voice. Now what would I want to get started. And that's what the solution should hopefully be Kevin. So this is your shortcut. We spent two years. There's after spending twenty plus years in digital advertising marketing and all of that. Well if someone comes in today. They're going to feel like they're left behind. We're willing to help share that knowledge college to bring you up to speed so that then that whole time of where have play. CATCHUP is alleviates. You can start getting. I'm making better experiences and stop just checking a box of creating something that's actually GonNa show the viability of voice as a proper business channel.

"voice summit" Discussed on Inside VOICE
"Brand again. Think of the songs how they made you feel and sound also uses your brain in a different way than visuals do and I. I love that. You're really talking about that. It's people it's not brand is not company this group of people trying to connect with this group of people in a one to one way in an audio experience like we are right now just to human beings talking king and I I love that you're breaking it down in such a simple way because I think sometimes we get so much into that technical business as we forget. These are people trying to connect with people. I can't agree more and like we've said every voice is different and everybody connects with different voices. You know differently. Is it going to be you know. Is the one voice gonNA connect with four million people at once. No probably not but you know the brands and companies at least paying or being aware of it a little bit more and how that can help bring some value you know. I guess if we want to get on the business side of things bring some value to their brand and to reach out to people in a little. Oh bit more personal way if you will. Yeah can you share with us. Any successes that brands you've worked with have seen from working with you or other voice actors in general and when it comes to engaging with voicemails if possible well again it's so new okay. Skills have been around you know with the echoes and all that that's been around for awhile. Voice acting has been around for a while but the meshing of the two seems to be fairly new so like I say I've only worked on one one skill and it was a connection. I made through Lincoln. It's called life venture so I guess you could go on your smart speaker and download life venture an N.. Play the game. I've only done one. I don't know all of the specs on the success of downloads or anything like that so I can attest to those numbers. But I can't say it was a great experience for me. I had a work with a wonderful developer super professional very efficient this particular developer it was written in. Xl unlike the left column had what we needed or what he wanted me to save the. I think it was by sentence what he wanted me to save that as and he he gave me the format that was needed and I sent it on. Its Way I do think this is maybe again. I can only go by my experience. And what I've heard a lot of other voice actors actors. Do it seems to be in. Its infancy for now. So it's a lot of education it's US keeping our acting skills up and connecting with developers and and working with them to show the value in that. It's something different. Not Everything has to sound like Alexa or Syria or Cortana or Bob or Jim you you know what I mean on the can be different because the voice actors are out there. It's a living breathing. You know rather large industry that not a lot of people know about so I've Only done the one to be honest done inside but it was a really really good experience for me so that was awesome. It helps with skill sets and acting all of so it was a win win on both sides and I am working on a couple of other projects right now having kind of to do it's not necessarily or could be part of a skill and other things. I'm not at liberty to say anything right now. Yeah and I think of just using voices in general and voice skill so one that has been done really well. In my opinion Ian was wait. Wait don't tell me which is the show by. NPR familiar with that one. I am they have a way scale and it was actually done by the inner smarts and and when I used that skill I loved it because they had the actual gentlemen who does the show. So it's his voice they are interacting with so not only does it coal from on the show he does. That's recorded but now you kind of feel like you're talking to him and the experience is totally different than when I tried to use a voice scale that uses. This is Alex's Voice Amazon exit hold and then I use maybe a third skill and that also hasn't Amazon Alexa voice and it starts to kind of feel like everything just sounds the same and so for me. That was a skill that I think did using voice over obviously a famous voice. That's attached to something already really made a difference in the experience that I had with that skill versus something else and there you were talking about that. It's kind of the branding. Kind of press. People know his voice so there was a nice emotion. You know oop whatever motion. You're trying to get you know from your skill but you recognize the voice and you. It was like like you said you were. We're talking to him not talking to a piece of plastic and wiring. You were talking to a person or talking with having a conversation with a person not having a conversation with an object and I think that makes a difference and that might be a way and maybe a lot of people who own this mart speakers don't even know about all the different skills also there I sure no I don't Know about all of the different skills that they're out there and this might be a way to differentiate them and you know introduce people to it. Hey it's not like you're talking to a piece of plastic that's in the middle of your counter. It's not a live conversation but at least it's one that is in all the great technology that connects people. Sometimes people are still really disconnected. And you hear of people still being super super lonely so bringing bringing that human touch and that emotion. That's not always perfect all the time. That's okay because that's how people relate to. I think it's important. Yes I cannot agree more I am all about about the human connection. I think you're right. It's a great way to kind of create connection because then you know the next step of voice skill could be to call them on the phone or connected them online and then you chat with a real person and so it kind of keeps that same feeling throughout so if People Wanna learn more about what we talked about today or they want connect with you. Where can they do that? Judy well thank you for indulging me in this Can certainly welcome to check out my website. which is simply judy? Foshan voiceovers voiceovers dot com can listen to demos therein some videos and whatnot Go ahead and email me. I'll be happy to answer any questions you have and my email l. address is judy at Judy.

And if I can answer your question at least I might be able to get you in the right direction to somebody who could help out. Her fact denies you were just mentioning earlier. One of the biggest issues in voice right now is the marketing component is getting people aware of what's out there and so we like to ask the question at the very end of this show if there is a current flash briefing or voice killer experience that you've used in really enjoy at this time you know I can't say that I can and to be honest with you.

"voice summit" Discussed on Inside VOICE
"The future that we imagine where people are engaging with their brands much more over voice assistance but today is there really a core. Need that someone's GonNa get from a smart speaker home maybe in some cases but in a lot of cases that might not be the right answer but then suddenly when you could be providing value whether someone's John's on the road driving or walking the aisles store just opens up a lot more options and there has become now a lot of voice agencies in the last few years what do you think makes banners smart unique within the space. I come back to onto the various started. This where it's we are born out of a broader not just advertising agency Z.. But a broader marketing company. And we're here to solve some of this fundamental business and marketing problems and so I think a lot of our colleagues around the voice space other agencies do really nice design were some of them put out some really cool experiences. I'd like to thank and I think we've been investment to say that are designed development capabilities are right up there on bar with the very best spent Since I've been here for years now investing heavily in that making it a core focus but in addition to building and designing really good experiences. We also have this broader agency and company around us that can be really powerful both and driving discovery which I think we all here as a a big want in the voice base that you can build very thing ever but unless you make people aware of that in the right moment it's tricky to drive engagement and then so we have a built in solution on that end and then more broadly thinking about that role that voice experience glazed within a broader product or marketing system. I mean I think again any company can take that more strategic coming in the differences. We're we're actually practitioners along that broader marketing ecosystem as well so whether that's being able to tap in some of my colleagues Bainer on the media side of house and when we haven't experienced coming up understand what are some of the most efficient ways to actually drive at discovery and with the right audiences or if it's about topping into the broader UNCREATIVE and strategy teams might understand a really old consumer journey for one of our clients and be able to help pinpoint the moments where we could address a real need with with a voice experience. It's just thinking of this not in isolation but instead as part of an overall brand system which ultimately is how user going to experience it so we look at that has our had a big competitive difference that expertise but also integration with the broader system. And can you share with us any success stories. You've had God with the brands you've worked with that are using voice. Sure of those that we've Big Ben acknowledged publicly in spoken with to come to mind. One Jamie Morgan we can chase. It was pretty big story for those in the AD world a couple of years ago we were named their Voice Agency of record. And that's been a great partnership running for a couple of years now where there have been bits. That have you've been public facing. And we've seen really interesting. Thought leadership experiences on their side where. I'm really proud of the work. We've done with them to take some of their really great educational information really great guidance investors and making that a bit more accessible through public facing skills in science briefings but then beyond that some of the work internally we've done from a strategic standpoint so helping them understand as they progress towards market with an own voice assistant as they look into the roles that across the different businesses interacting for conversations whether it's voice or messing are GonNa play in some cases. This is Upper funnel stuff where it might be after initial awareness. But they WANNA help do a little bit of validation of leads or bring folks along that journey a little bit. Sometimes sometimes an automated conversational experience might actually be a better solution than trying to drive them right into a bank branch or something like that. We've done quite a lot of work on the strategy side. Jake retakes there and then another one. WHO's been a great partner over the years and we're continuing to work closely with the audio and the spirits category so the makers of most talkative spirits and for them they were actually our very first client that we ever developed a skill for that Johnnie Walker Whisky? mentorships guided added Whiskey tastings back in two thousand sixteen saw a lot of success. There evolved from Amazon Google as well continued at a rate on that and then Spread it out to another skill experience about happy hour. That's kind of portfolio wide a little bit more of a recipe experience for cocktails within within the broader happy are context of reasons to cheers and stuff along the way and then increasing now as Amazon and Google of starting to build out more. I party capabilities. Typically in that recipe space. It's a obviously very popular domain voice. So one way or the platforms are investing more in answering questions directly themselves and maybe not always of these less frequently deferring out to third party skills and actions now were kind of pivoting on our strategy and looking into what are are the new ways that farms are GonNa be surfacing this information to users and how can we position Biagio is a folio and then the individual brands in the right moments there to service the right recipe in the right moment for user. Guide them through whether it's instructions on certain types of mixing Aren't all the different stuff you can get around cocktail content. And then for some of their brands there will still be more interactive experience of. It's not to say that it's it's all utility based all the time but across their portfolio really picking up the right solution in the right moment and it's something that they've put as a big priority in have been really Great Orange Emirs. I know you're talking about on the go. which is again what you're really passionate about at this? Time is a brand creative way skill that works on the go. Oh beyond a device at home so maybe what are some tips. You can give to make sure a grand scale can be used on the go. Yeah and I'd start with. We are just figuring this Out Now like those hardware form factors talking about echo buds just shipped. Yes in the last few months anyway. The Pixel Buds are going to ship until next during latest. We've heard is early spring and so we've been playing around with the teams on both sides while as at Bowes they've got hardware market earlier earlier. It's obviously a small user base but really cool seeing even the bose frames and how those are integrating voice commands there. But I think first and foremost it's about really getting into the mindset of user defining. So we talk here in terms of and I've each inspirational design target and part of the definition of that user is GonNa be where they're being where they're using the experience and so in terms of envisioning where they are and then forecasting you need based on that it's really important in the planning stages and then in terms of the actual experience designed as of today we don't have you know an automated way to sense which hardware coming through through across Google and so in context it's about trying to with you know a little bit artfully upfront. We don't want to be totally bash people over the head with with Way Finding in directions but asking them early on an experience a couple of discovery questions to figure out as much about their context weekend and then tailor the rest of the experience from there. So really you might very well have an experience that you've designed one way if you're envisioning somewhat over smart speaker and another way if they're you're on the goats not unlike how we think about multi-modal today where we might have Sunday mentally a very similar experience. But if someone's got a screen device in front of them I can make a lot more assumptions and show them reference information on that screen that if they're audio only can't so the sooner that I can kind of working to the upfront of the conversation. Some discovery question that helps me know which contacts therein the better tailored I can make that experience. Well I think so. You've provided so much information today. If people want to learn more about what we talked about where they want connect with you. Where can they do that online? Sure of the best place for me is going to be on Lincoln on. There's Patrick givens you can look up also always happy to chat over email so In my other boquets givens. JV NS adventure media NFL. And the last question we'd like to ask on this show to help promote voice as a whole is what is a current slash briefing or voicemail or experience that you are really enjoying right now while I'm be totally shameless and go given the status of the NFL and hopefully listeners. Out There I'm a huge Baltimore. Ravens dance dance. I've Been Baltimore Ravens. FLASH BRIEFING JUST ABOUT EVERY MORNING for the past couple of months. We've got a nice round here but I actually think it's a little bit addictive of what actually does work in this space. Where where it's about a passion point right? We're not expecting to for kind of generic discovery from a random. This is very content within that last briefing thing is designed for fans because those who are going to be pretty pretty deeply committed fans one a little bit more broad. Maybe it's been around for a little while but I think still is just such a great example of what I can do. Well as jumpers. I'm sure that's on the audience. Super familiar with autism has been very impressed by what the team did their to find a really relevant day are create good habit and then keep programming useful content against that and all L. aligning with encouraging a good behavior. It's awesome well. Thank you so much Patrick for being care and I look forward to seeing what you and the team at banner smart continued to create. Thanks so much.

What's kind of your long term vision for it? And why do you think boys is so applicable for the car. Yes so make the whole road.

Different voice skills is what is the favorite voice scale experience or flash briefing. You're using right now and really enjoying. I've actually got a four year old son so he's actually loving comfy panda skill on Alexa. And is it you know voted amazing sound effects. It says he's reading joying how it allows interacts exercise daily. So that's a daily skill that we actually used so is this is a bit of the old navy but it's really fun way and it's amazing how develop is actually looking out the use cases on who's actually using these making amazing expansive Well thank you so much ethan for sharing what you're doing and I am just super excited to see a grow.

"voice summit" Discussed on The Voicebot Podcast
"Privilege of hosting a panel discussion about Fintech company actually run our product development and design globally we have a twelve new product and centers around the world and they're good locations like London Singapore Dubai Beijing's policy it's a pretty I spent a lot of time on planes the cool thing is were seen so much demand and interest in this space that allows us to apply exploration into it and so everything from the stack but also just the human experiences and what will work what doesn't work as we played this unique role in the payments and commerce eco-system this the connective tissue so we have a real responsibility sure that the things that are done in the space are safe and secure and worked for for real people all right so Sanada today from td Ameritrade you've been doing this a little while now why don't you give people a little bit of your background what you're working on and what you will be working I feel like Oh Good Morning my name is Selena as Greg mentioned I'm kind of doing two jobs right now the job I'm representing here today is the being our strategic partnerships at emerging tech portfolio they call us the tiger team I'd started with a random reference from our CEO and now internally Darnley because the tiger team I guess it's better than being the squirrel team so I'm going to own it really the thesis behind what what my team and I do is how tap into the power of new technologies and partnerships you know ranging from a to machine learning to voice of course but really a S- focus on how do you break down barriers that still persist in financial services but especially in busting right as much as two new technologies have really changed our behaviors and Willie modernized the way we live our lives when it comes to financial services it's still opaque there's a level of the real or perceived complexity so what we really obsessive about is not just technology but how do you commercialize it in a way that Americans can feel power to enter the capital markets with confidence and you know that's where we've been obsessed about voice our members of team are here and they can keep me honest the hoop confluence of audio voice and now is something we believe actually works really well for us to deliver on that thesis about breaking down barriers and you know we can dig into it I'm glad bread said there's no glamour and sexiness behind leading some of these new product developments is I'm sure my colleagues will students a lot of Grit and grind and we've got like the war wounds to show for it but I think the problem statement kind of makes it makes it worth doing it uh-huh and I really love that the heat and the team were able to get such a broad perspective here from the financial services industry because there's a lot of different fast so we have a lot of representatives today and I want to start with the fact that you just started talking about td Ameritrade I first became familiar with your voice project last fall when you became the first company to Enable Stock Trades by Royce yeah so I think it would be helpful for people in the audience to understand Komo about why was that important what were your objectives how is it turned out yeah absolutely so one of the things that we as tighter team very disciplined about is we've got the addresses but I'll focus on the first which is you know what is the problem we're solving why is this worth Solvay and why are we as td Ameritrade uniquely qualified to solve that problem and source the confluence of voice and the partnership with Amazon to be the first financial services company to add not just education information but the transaction layer to voice was really predicated on the fact that Ed just the ubiquity of you I mean he you know Kudos to pete he for hosting a week long conference on voice I think that just underscores that this is an emerging technology that's Kinda has hyper growth and consumer adoption but second is it's a very unique eua in the sense that it's natural the ability to converse one of our most primitive skills there's no additional aiming require and then the third is in an era where we're always glued to something in you know I just I'm having separation anxiety because my phone is on the table and not in my hands right now but you know but this notion of untethered hands-free experiences very liberating right so what we heard from our clients was so much about I need boys what we heard from our clients was I need to be plugged into the markets or finish education on the go and we wanted to do was make sure that access to financial markets and financial education it's part of your lifestyle that it's not Chore Number Sixty Two on your to do list what better way to do it is to bring to the modalities that you use every day as part of your life and lifestyle so that really was the genesis of our partnership okay so let's get specific check what defines success so you started out I'm going to roll this how what were you trying to achieve and did you make yes I would say cheese as we define success one is obviously the end business results how are we driving business results as we measure based on new acquisition or increased engagement whether the trades or access to education right the second is what are we learning in terms of consumer adoption behavior because we recognize a lot these things are still in there and it's perpetual Beta right and I'm the first you know when we do these projects to say we're not going to bring in a million trades every month via voice but we have to start here and we have to iterating the one key success measure has been thanks to our launch of trading on Amazon just a few months ago and the learning Arnor justice we we announced that we are one of the first initial services in the world to offer suite of offer leans now within your vehicle experience powered by voice and we did that in partnership with apple carplay Google enjoy and enforce our friends at Amazon Acko auto so to me that's also just of success is you're able to take it to the next level so on that so you can give arc information from all of those services but I think through Alexi you can still you can trade while you're drives connected back to your Alexa App on your home device so trade stocks while your commute you know you never that problem again you can always talk always time the market don't try to tell you this is not a recommendation uh-huh yeah but this is where we get the press release and we find out what you can really dance okay all right so mark you have innovation groups world you're working on all these different products how did voice wind in your portfolio is something to be a priority that you're gonNA start to work on yeah so just to set context of how we think about it so visas the world's largest payment network if you were to take our three closest competitors added them all up by almost metric probably fifty percent more so like we just played this unique role in two hundred countries around the world there three point four billion visa cards peanut credentials circulation so I suspect everyone in this room has a piece of plastic with these on it and so in that process the first thing we are laying off clear and several author station is making sure you are you that it's hotter fraudulent transaction and within that framework there five ways was we started explore biometrics say how do we can we really know that your you well it's Fingerprint Palm print facial recognition Iris and voice now of those five voices a very special this case because of those five is the only one that is both a biometric that can uniquely authenticate you but then also this thing which can actually concentrate entire transaction you can build entire experience around it and so what we've been seeing around the world all of our clients are tested lots of different ways and so ooh Australia New Zealand there's a coal jamie that ANC the big bank there's been testing this it's really cool here in the United States you have capital one with you know which is one spelled backwards or Erica from Bank of America which is like a subset of America in case you didn't pick up on that is such a big deal for them I mean look America the largest retail bank in America by retail deposits in there now in their quarterly earnings announcing how many Erica active users they have so there is a questions like are they serious about this there's your answer right there. CEO is talking about on the quarterly earning installs so we've just been exploited a bunch of different ways and we get into a little more an hour later but what we found is that because it's this unique thing that humans interact with it in ways that you really have to think through the use cases and in some cases actually add Shen or confirmation throughout the process so that humans feel comfortable actually using this channel got it so thinking about voice is the consumer consumer touch points technology it's also something that you're partners might use and you might be on the back end of it so how do you think about that in terms of what your role is in the Arca as consumers adopt boys are you out in the front is it important for you to have that one on one relationship where they're talking directly to visas if you to be able to support your partners who are using another ways yeah so again visa on a common misperception in the market is we don't issue any cards the whole thing like how many are many cars Uber have zero how many hotel rooms does airbnb zero how many cars these issue zero thanks issued the cards but we're the platform on the back end so we have a whole set of API is an services that allow them to not only issue those cards but then every transaction make sure there's a whole set of risk security controls and different things that make it all work to make the ecosystem safe and so that's really the role we play is when we work with heart sixteen thousand plus financial institutions around the world or the fifty four million different brands that accepted visa payment credential like we actually write the rules in the standards Eh you're going to use this technology than here's the way that if you're going to authenticate using voice here's the standard that you use and if you're going to interact in these ways than here are the here's the customer journeys here are the use cases that really work here the things you need to embed into the experience to make sure that the customer knows one we found is what we're hearing from a lot of merchants was we really want to explore new technology we're fine people aren't using it as much as we thought like even the early adopters they might use floor but they're not actually doing transactions and so what we found was there when we asked people like well why don't you they would say things like well how does it knows me well we knew on the back authenticated using voice but we had to tell them Oh hi mark I know it's you which payment credential do you want it's now of course they probably already had payment credential on file with that merchant but we need to stop and say oh by the way we're going to use your J. P. Morgan Chase Sapphire Card for this is that okay so by adding friction in the process of confirmation we found that actually gives consumers the confidence to do the transactions and that's actually the thing that when we work with all our partners around the world that's actually the things that they want to know from us and so we should highlight that point just in case anybody missed that we talk about is is removing friction and then absolutely does that however in certain types of use cases workflows it's actually useful you found in your research to add some friction because it increases confidence and trust in the process it's a fair yeah I'll give you one quick example we did a bunch of primary research with different Sumers and different airman's in their home and retail environments in their car and one of the things we.
Voice Technology Applications That Are Not Alexa and Friends With Jeff Adams CEO of Cobalt
"What's next Invoice Technology Jeff Adams welcome back to the voice by podcast in drink to be here Brad. Thank you for inviting me well. It was great to actually see you in Newark the first first time we've talked a number of times. I've had you on the podcast in the past and we we've done an interview two years ago but we'd never actually better person. We'd never been in the same room together. It was really nice in Newark to do that. I know I verify finally that you were not just an A. I bought the other end but yes some people think there must be my lack of personality Switzerland so just for the voice by listeners out there jeff was our guests and episode fifty nine one in year ago this month in that we really went deep and we discussed his time leading the our team the built out Amazon Alexa his time with nuance and a number of other companies spanning a more than twenty year career invoice that his yielded over twenty patents so he's been at the technical level in this space for a number of years check that out if you want to get the full back story on what he's doing it cobol and and also I should probably say congratulations jeff making the top forty four leaders invoice list with which voiced by put out last month. Thank you very much much. I am excited and honored to be on that list and yeah look. I hope I can live up to whatever expectations that creates well yeah I. I think we had a independent panel of judges in. I think your career speaks for itself so they put you on the list and I nodded approvingly when I saw you on there so I thought it was great. Great Great. Thank you okay so maybe setup. Today's conversation Jeff made a presentation. Eh The voice summit voice nineteen in July was called ten favourite application applications of speech not involving Alexa inference so I was conducting interview at the same time. Jeff was presenting so I miss the presentation somewhat selfishly. I thought afterwards persuade them to present it to me. Live so I could understand had what he was sharing but then I thought even better why don't I record the conversation for the voice spot podcast audience so we could both benefit from these insights from someone who's been around the the block in his looking beyond the elected Google assistant ecosystem so here's how I suggest we proceed Jeff. You've ten examples will walk through them in a countdown fashion starting with number ten afterward. If we have a little time as question for you about how the industry is evolving that sound good to you are fantastic okay without further redo ten applications of speech not evolving Lexus in France starting with number Tad. I believe that is smart. Baby Monitor senator. Is that correct. That's right so my my number ten on my list. Is that smart baby monitor so there are a couple of people that are looking at things like this. The one I would give a shoutout to is a group in Toronto called Village Technologies They are developing this end. I think is a fantastic idea India as a parent myself when you have a baby you wanna be able to monitor them in there in the nursery and their crib wherever and so it's common to put a a microphone that you can listen in on when you're out doing your work. You're in the kitchen year somewhere else in the office. and you want to be able to hear you know when the baby wakes up but why stop there. Why don't we put some some smarts into that baby monitor so that it can track the baby's linguistic development element as it's evolving? It's going over the first year or two or three of of of life and be able to tell the difference between babble all and maybe a crime may be well formed syllables that are formed of consonants and vowels and what do they start saying actual words. What are the first words and so forth and be able to monitor that over time so that you can you know track your baby's progress but also be alerted to if there's an issue if there's some development delay in your baby speaking and you can address that quickly and in time signed to do something about it. I think this is a fantastic idea that that you know you. WanNa be listening to your baby anyway. Let's pay attention to this so I think this is fascinating. Reading from a business standpoint makes a lot of sense to me too because parents are so focused on the development of their children. I can see how if this is successful and they they position correctly could probably get significant uptake. I'm really interested in what they're doing on the back end here and potentially taking thousands tens of thousands thousands maybe even millions of children who are very young and developing this database of sounds of infants yet exactly in the pre speech communication right and can we figure out the difference between a baby. That's just you know exercising their vocal cords or someone that's legitimately upset or in pain or hungry or I. I'm excited excited to see what comes of that and what they're able to do with that. It's very. I don't know if you're wearing that is their corpus. It exists which is of like infants in their vocalisations there there are recordings of infants but the hard part is to get appropriate labels on them so you know it's hard to know. No one babies crying was that because they were hungry was that because their diaper needed changing was that because they are in pain of of some sort or whatever in order for such a carcass useful you're in the sense of trying to understand what the cries vocalisations elections mean you'd have to know you'd have to have a bunch of labeled baby vocalisations and that's hard to come up with. You know you're you don't Wanna ago. Actually you know poke babies with a pin here what it sounds like when they're you know in pain right. You don't want to starve them to hear what they sound like when they're a AH hungry so you just have to you know I think if we're going to do something like that if we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA get to the point of being able to analyze that you'll have to get the recordings things that babies will naturally make throughout the course of their of of their formative years and and then after the fact try to figure out now. Why were they crying. What was that sound for. Whatever well so this isn't something that's easily outsourced to contractors for supervised learning annotation right? That's that's right. That's right topic in today's news right. Yeah you kind of need you kind of need the parents to be able to say oh. Here's why the baby was crying. I figured it out. It's like crowd outsource annotation. It's brilliant exactly you know. There's another thing that I think could go with this very easily. People talk about the thirty million word gap between a babies that here a lot of speech when they're growing up and babies they don't hear a lot of speech and much has been made about how the the the thirty million word gap accounts for the difference between babies who grow up with strong language skills and babies who don't babies. You're academically advantaged or not so in addition to listening to the babies. This kind of baby monitor might actually WANNA listen to the adults in the room as well all to see. How much speech is the baby hearing What kind of speech is the baby hearing. You know positive positive language. Is the baby hearing whatever also there. I think there's a lot that can be done with this and and and we're just looking. We're just starting to think about it now. Yeah I think that over time the system could supplement if if it saw this this word I don't know what you call this word count utterance. It's deficit deficit rate with there's some deficit in terms of the number of words they're hearing on a daily weekly monthly basis. They adds up to that thirty million million over time that this solution might not necessarily cajole the parents into talking more but might supplement it with. I don't know reading to the child or having the interactive stories or something like that. That's right. You could absolutely do that but I think there's also underestimate the value of game vying. I that sounds that sounds like I'm trivializing this but raising a child is one of the most important things any anyone one can do but you know if you if just like people track their steps in and whatever if you're tracking the words that your babies hearing that might encourage you to be thinking about that and saying Oh. I need to read more to my child. I need to talk more to my child and so forth yeah I I think it's fascinating so the idea that we can have this giant Corpus of of infant utter a vocalisations utterances of some sort and then eventually actually potentially be able to label that this whole new Corpus which I assume would be a big advantage for whoever's launched these these absences soon there will be several over time and then maybe that's used more broadly now there is this other potential issue around COPPA but I assume they would just be an opt-in Dan. The parents could could sign up or right right exactly you wouldn't want to do this and participate in this unless you were willing to opt in and have that have the baby monitor actually pay attention to your babies speech and so forth okay so that was that was an interesting conversation all right so that's number ten. That's only number ten. It just gets better from from here all right well. Let's talk about number nine so number nine what we see everywhere everywhere. I look but I frequently run into mentions mentions of unmanned aerial vehicles whether they are urban taxis are drones that are monitoring pollution or whatever there's there's an increasing number of unmanned aerial drones and a problem with that that most people don't think about is that if if these if these drones are going to be able to fly through commercial airspace unlike overflying airport land at a Commercial Airport doesn't I'm not talking necessarily about landing at JFK but you even if they're going to overfly a regional airport that has an air traffic control tower they have to be able able to talk to air traffic control so these these airplanes that are that are flying around have to be able to understand and speak to air traffic control so it has to be able to say requesting permission to land on runway nineteen and and then the air traffic control will say something back it has to understand no sorry use runway thirteen instead approach from the northeast.
"voice summit" Discussed on Voice First Health
"Thanks so much for joining myself listeners today Terry. Thank you so much for Adamy. It's my pleasure now. I gotTa Say I've been aware of what you doing with novel effect for some time now but I really had the opportunity to meet one of your colleagues Melissa at the Voice Summit recently and when I finally Riley got to play with the product I was just blown away by it so I wanna get into all the great things that you guys are doing and how this actually ties in with healthcare and kids and development and all that sort of stuff but I think before we even get there. I'd love to have you introduce yourself a little bit too listener so that they know who you are sure I'm Matt Hammersley and the CO founder and and CEO Novel Effect sports it enough to start this business with my wife who's the colleague that she met at Voice Summit and so I have kind of a unique background where I actually went to school for Chemical Engineering and then did Togr Affi for the government and then when got my law degree and became a patent attorney and now I founder of a tech startup fantastic. So how many patents have you been able to file with your own company. Oh my goodness a lot good for you. That's awesome. That's a pretty good skill set to have in this in this field. That's great you know just being able to you know right and protect Oliver. Ip with pretty much no cost to us you know before we even form the company was was pretty spectacular. That's amazing using that's really great. Cool all right so tell us a little bit about. What is this company? What is novel affect? What do you guys do yeah so we are all about voice interactive media and entertainment and our real focus is about working with the media that people already know in love from books to the videos two games and what our system does is synchronized all sorts of special effects? Whether it's theme music sound the facts. Maybe a character's. There's voice in while you enjoy this typical media so books is where we got started and it's what's out there in the public right now and it's synchronizes this movie style soundtrack as a parent child read aloud a print book together and our real focus focus is all about using technology in a way that brings us together as people you know we saw so much and didn't want to see our daughter grew up in a world where you're putting a device in front of her walking away or using technology as a babysitter so instead we took a completely different take on how you interact racked with technology and using voices that conduit to really strengthen that personal connection bond with people that's amazing and so so the way I understand it and I know I've seen the product but just to sort of reiterate so a person or a child would or with their parents without their parents they would choose a book they they would start reading and the technology with listen to what this person is reading and it'd be a soundtrack behind it. Is that sort of a fair summary Yeah. That's absolutely right it. Here's you read the book aloud an is determining like argue reading the book or are you talking with each other uh-huh and when you read the book it knows where you are in the story and then synchronizes the right music and the right sound effects for wherever you are you're so you can open up the book and start in the middle in it picks right up where you where you are so that's a very important point because it's not just simply playing a soundtrack contract and you have to follow along with the soundtrack in reverse the soundtrack is falling along with your reading and no matter where you are how fast you're eating. It's following coming along with you absolutely absolutely and we wanted to make sure that we could accommodate for kids asking questions or going down and exploration outside inside the text of the book and when you do that the system just gently loops in the background and waits for you to continue reading right. How did you come up with this idea? I mean it's such a UH novel idea yeah well. It all started with my daughter. Actually we had a baby shower before she was born and we asked everyone to bring us books instead of cards so we could build a little library for my wife's friend started reading around the book that she brought for us and all of a sudden she captivated a room full of adults and kids by adding all these voices and sound effects to her story and it was kind of a lightbulb lightbulb moment right then and there of Oh my gosh if every parent and teacher could tell stories like that all kids would love beat and me being a patent attorney journey you know I couldn't let it go. I was at that night doing patent searches. You know who's doing this. Is it out there and man there. Wasn't anyone even close so we filed a whole bunch of patents and within three months I had quit my job. We sold our house and moved across the country to to start the company wow and so. Where did you get the technology expertise for this? Well you know I have an engineering background but I'm no developer that's for sure and this was is one of the first part of our journey was finding a technical co founder. Who could you know try and help us build stuff and we I went with a kind of outside shop opt to just see is feasible and you know in a very limited context? What does the experience actually feel like once we built it and I'll never forget the first time we were doing the little engine that could and I got we got the first three pages to work already more than three pages but we got the first three and we read to my daughter who was about three months old at the time and she just kind of stopped what she was doing and looked at US said with this you know look of amazement but me and my wife just cried instantly new new we had it? That's amazing that's fantastic wow and so I want to get into all the educational part in terms of the development of children and that's what I but I just want to touch on quickly like so. Obviously you need to have the book or do you need to have the book how how does that work in terms of the catalog of books that are available that have soundtracks for them but what's the clan there yes so we custom composed the music and sound effects for each book and we have like a digital studio that allows us to do that and so a user yet they they have to have a copy of the book whether it's an e book tuck whether it's a print book whether they check it out from the library or buy it from a bookstore and I it pairs with any of those so these are just simply taps play. I puts the phone down doesn't even look at it again and reads aloud from the book fantastic and after I met your wife at advice summit I came home and I went through our library. My my kids are a little bit older. Now that a pre teen and early teen years I went through some of the books and there's room and sure enough we found one of the favourite books that my kids used to love to read when they were a bit younger and one of my wife's favorite as well bear snores on and I love that story so we pulled that out and open the APP and we started playing along along and I can say I was amazed. My daughter was just like the expression on her face was incredible so it was so neat to hear the different sound effects so you guys are doing something really incredible and I want to and that brings me to the next next point here. I'm really curious to know about from a health perspective and and health broadly defined can could include pediatric development and I think you're onto something very interesting here in terms of the benefits of reading and what this can do for kids. I wonder if you can speak a little bit too that Oh absolutely and you know this. This is a core of why we started this and our third co founder when me and my wife decided to do this the I personally went to was actually our sister-in-law and she was getting her. PhD In teaching children with visual impairments and you know it it was a light bulb for her to of I do this every day class because my kids can't see and I bring it noisemakers and make them along with the story so that they get what's going on because they don't see the pictures and you know so from day one education and really learning and understanding the impact act we can have with literacy and the motivation to read too and what that can do for a child throughout their life you know I think there's so so many studies out there. about the benefits of reading to your kids like we're not doing anything new in that regard but what I think is important important especially in this day and time is you know there's no happy medium where you get to engage the child within the way that modern technology can right but not take away from the human-to-human in our action right that it's so important Britain when a child is learning to read and developing speech that they see your mouth move right that that one aspect of it is hugely important because they're trying to replicate what you're doing link and trying to understand from you how to speak themselves and that's where I think we find our perfect balance. Silence is that marriage of using the technology to engage and keep their attention while facilitating that humans human interaction action and see you kind of get the best of both worlds right. They're excited about reading. They Wanna read more. You're doing together and so it's this great flywheel effect the fact that I think we're only in the beginning stages of understanding what the impact is right and I know I know it's only a sample size of one but you know my daughter just turned four and you know what she can pretty much freed which is which is kind of crazy and I'm curious then. Have you done any sort of pilot studies at this point or do you have any statistics that you're able to relate to us in terms of what this platform has allowed her or the changes it has allowed for in terms of reading without the use of novel effective versus with it Yeah so we kind of focused on on three really core educational outcomes right and the first is engagement right. Are they paying attention or not the second is comprehension. Do they understand what the material is and is the contextual music is it can sound effects that were adding to the experience improving that.

"voice summit" Discussed on Voice in Canada
"Skills all right. It's Tuesday and today is podcast day.

We're now and like through the morning of day to what have you seen that you know impressed you that you were surprised about the thought it was really notable.

These are using different partners in to build their solution. There's a lot of collaboration over here and I think that's the most <hes> significant things that we see in the industry in the way that it's happening. Even though we started with very strong players in the beginning being there is no dominant single guerrilla there will rule the world over here. It's much more about how does we how do we collaborate and work over here. <hes> which I think is a very healthy way for the industry to evolve that is a word.

"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.

"voice summit" Discussed on Alexa in Canada
"So without any further ado, let's jump into the discussion here. The fun back and forth between Pete and I hope you. It. All right. Here we are. There's two of us chatting with you today, Terry and Pete, Pete. Hey, what's going on here? What are we doing? I gotta tell you. This is a lot of fun. So, yeah, so for everybody out there, this is we're sorta co recording a podcast. This is a this is a conversation that Terry now you're going to have, and we're going to place, it on our inside voice podcast as one of our podcast episodes. But then I'll throw it over to you. Where is this going to end up? And this is going to end up on the Alexa in Canada podcast as well. Peach been a guest all the Alexa in Canada podcast. Actually number times before, and we've, we've come to know, each other pretty well through, of course, the voice summit and I always like lawyers love chatting with Pete and finding out what he is up to. So we thought this would be a really fun way to kinda update each other on what's going on in our world and update you guys listeners on what's going on, because there's a lot going on. I know. And maybe maybe on this just a little bit. We'll tell you first off. I just got to say. Say that I am. I am very impressed at your up early. Terry is on the west coast in Vancouver Canada. It is six AM where he is. I'm lucky I'm having a fills copy. It's ninety. You know, and I will add that the Toronto Raptors won the NBA finals last night. The game ended I think close to midnight our time but I have a feeling most people in Canada were up late last night. Is that is that you Terry? I think that's a fair statement. It was a little, there's a lot of fun, but a little bit of history, and my kids, literally had some friends over here. And when they won they ran around the neighborhood screaming gore after's, and that was like you're. There's sort of representing all of Canada's. So you know, good for Canada. And, and I I in polling for the Canadian women in the World Cup as well just so you know, full disclosure. Nice. Nice. All right. Awesome. Well, Pete for people that have not met you before for my podcast. Maybe you can give a quick overview of who you are, and what you do. Okay. So I'm Eric said, I'm the founder of motive motive is a community building organization founded ten years ago, we also build a series of conferences, and communities, one of which is voice summit, which is happens now to be the largest gathering in the boys tech base. I am thrilled to be involved in this community. So a lot of folks know me as the organizer of voice summit. And if folks want to check it out, they can go to boy, some die. We have more than three hundred speakers coming from twenty five countries, and we expect about five thousand attendees in July Terry of which you are one of our. Esteemed returning speakers and Arturs on this event. I remember talking to you very early on. And it's been great. So that's what I'm up to, and I think that's a little bit of what we're gonna talk about today. Certainly in addition to just how far this space has come in, in just the past year. But as you know, voice has been around for, for decades, in fact, it's been building, slowly. But now all the sudden here we are in this voice, I dare and you're running the probably the number one property in this space in Canada. So here we are there. We are. Absolutely, so, and you're right. And I was at voice summit last year. Like you said incredible event absolutely credible event. And, and I know through our discussions that you have some pretty neat. You know, additions to the eventually say, can you talk just a little bit about some of the things that are, that are well, the same, but also some of the some of the new elements that you're adding into the event this year. Yeah. There's a few things you know last year. Really focused on the content, I think that what we wanted to do was, we just wanted to bring everybody together, we wanted as many voices heard as possible we are continuing in that spirit this year. But then we're adding in some key activation that were not part of last year's event. So we have like the voice awards, for example, that is on a Wednesday night. It's a full awards dinner. We're going to be giving out awards across about fifteen different categories, and I know that, you know, our friends at Amazon Alexa, Samsung and Microsoft are giving out special awards there as well. So that's going to be a lot of fun. We're also adding in the sonic brand society, which is a new networking community for specifically around audio branding. We're going to be launching that at the Grammy museum on Tuesday night, the twenty-third, so, you know, more structured networking type events and we're going to add on a hacker Thon on Monday, which is going to be, I think a. A highly sought after fun event, especially for students or those that just want to get their feet wet with, with technology and there'd be prizes. Were also adding a steam day that day. So we're going to do special programming for middle school to high school, kids and do their very own program that day, and we're really looking forward to that. So, yeah, I mean, we're, we're adding in a bunch of elements onto the event. And then I think, for folks that were there, last year, they're going to see a evolutionary leap in the expo, and what to expect on site. The activation were getting really excited about unbelievable. I don't know actually how you put it all together. But somehow you manage like I am going to shout out to your team because I know you've got a huge team behind you and I know it would be possible without them as well. So you got a pen task team. Absolutely. I gotta you on that. We are, you know where a group of folks that are passionate about building community and building people together. I think the. One thing that people may, you know, a lot of people know this. But, you know, organizing events is a lot of work. It is incredible amount of detail. You know, and we're dealing with three hundred speakers over a hundred sponsors, thousands of attendees vendors, and it all can't happen, unless people are behind the scenes doing work, we are incredibly lucky. I call them the motivators to how the motivators working behind the scenes and thank you so much for, for recognizing that Terry. Yeah. No. That is that is amazing amazing. So, like you said, you've got thousands of people coming, there's going to be all different areas that are covered. Everything healthcare to flash briefings, for the two of the topics that I'm really interested in and I had the opportunity to, to look at some of the submissions you asked me to be on the board. And I'm not sure from love to say that Pete. But anyway, yeah. Yeah. No, that's, that's totally public information. They got you a website as well. So wonderful in the end I can I can? You know, for people out there that are wondering if it should they attend this event, it's pretty clear you should and get out there, because the speakers are going to be absolutely incredible. So, yeah, I think. Yeah. And. I the way that I positioned it is this is this is a fundamental change in the way that we access our products and services across the board. Whether it's in our home at our work in our car, and it if you are out there in you're at all, curious about what does this mean for me as a business owner or in any other capacity? This is the event where you're gonna get your questions answered the knowledge transfer that's going to happen. There is really unprecedented in, in this space, but almost in, in most technology circles, you won't find very many conferences, where there are three hundred speakers and you know, two hundred fifty sessions. So this is an opportunity to, to really get caught up on this face, and, you know, to take deep dive. I wanna turn it back to you a little bit Terry, because you're speaking at the event, I've got you on. We have you on four different sessions, you're going to be given your own session on. Flash briefings, which you call the prime real estate of voice. That's going to be a fantastic session. Forty five minutes for anybody that wants to know Terry really is one of the leading thirties, inflates briefings. But I think, and then you're on, you're on a healthcare panel, of course, for the for folks that aren't aware from our podcast, Terry. I need I need to stop here, and really introduce, you, we haven't done that you're a physician you were, you were not in the voice for a space just a few years ago. But now here you are sort of one of the preeminent authorities on on voice just in general, but you also come at it from a physician standpoint give us a little background on you and and and Alexis in Canada. Where's all this headed? It's good question. Sometimes I'm not sure where I find hours in the day, but as busy, people do, I think we tend to sort of fit it in, but thanks for asking me. Yes. So it was so my name's Terri Fisher. I'm a physician out in Vancouver and. I'd have to say my three biggest interests cautions are education, technology and healthcare. And as of a couple of years ago, you're absolutely right. I was not involved in the voice for space at all. But I have always been interested in those three things education, technology and healthcare, and I started hearing, the rumblings of these voice first assistance coming to Canada. And I was very intrigued. And the more I started looking into it. The more I realized this is something that is going to revolutionize everything that we do, but also from the healthcare perspective being a physician, of course, and some of my background which people may not know before it did medical school. I actually did an education degree. So I am a teacher and I love teaching about technologies. I love teaching a medical school, and I went on the web, and I started looking for resources about what is all this stuff mean what? How does this particularly impact Canadians, but also everybody in the areas of healthcare in the areas of education, and so on, and I really could not find anything at the time. And, and so, I decided that I was going to create create some type of resource for people. And so the first thing I did was, I launched the, the Alexa, in Canada website, which is a resource for people to learn all about how to get the most out of Alexa, I've done polls on my audience, and a lot of people that are sort of the end consumers of using the devices. There's also a lot of voice industry. Professionals developers, and so on that lake do tune into that, as well around the same time I started to learn about flash briefings, and I've been a podcast or in the past and I saw last week and I still see flash briefings as one of the biggest opportunities right now as far as educating getting a message out to your audience, whoever that may be. And so I jumped on that, and I'm very proud to say very humbled to say that ever since I launched it in my flash briefing has been the number one flash briefing in Canada and I'm now approaching my five hundred consecutive episode of the flash. Oh, that is awesome. And I don't actually know I'd love to know if anybody has any way to check like, what is the longest running flash briefing because I don't know. But I can't imagine that there's there are many more longer than that right now at five hundred episodes so far. And one of the things I'm going to do actually just, just, you know what you listeners know, at five hundred which is in a couple of weeks. There's a very, very special surprise and involves prizes for my audience to celebrate into thank everybody. So that's one area. Very cool, where we gotta get the word out on that. So, so that's one area, then, of course, being a physician, I launched voice, I health, which is the same kind of idea educating the public about what's going on in at the intersection of healthcare and voice, and I launched the two podcasts Alexa, Canada voice, I health and then kind of putting everything together, I also launched brief cast dot FM, which is now the number one and the first and only as far as I know. Network for flash briefings, where I vet flash briefings because, as we know one of the issues is with discover -bility of a good skills and flash briefings. And this is a resource that people can go to find the best flash briefings, and tune in and the last thing I'll mention is then created a course, flash briefing formula, which is entirely free premium course on how to create a flash briefing..

It'll be well worker time we're very pleased today to have a fantastic panel. Our first guest is Pete Ericsson pizza. Hello. Hello, bradley. How you doing? Good morning. The morning Pete. Thank you for joining us. So peach founder of Modell have you produce? A lot of fantastic events, including the voice summit, which was the summer of really really nice job share with this. What should do and all the different things you got going on? Yeah. Thanks. Yes. Some motives organization. I founded ten years ago. Actually, it started as a meet up community where I live in the Washington DC area. I had just moved here from Seattle and was looking for folks to collaborate around this brand new iphone and toon store that had come out and the pending Android Thelen. So I started at community and limited. I know what that would lead to the community grew. I've put on a conference and after that conference that first conference I came home. And I told my wife has I think this is our new business and made that made the decision at that time to really embrace community building my full time vocation. So since that time, we have we have really focused on bringing people together around technologies emerging technology. We produce a number of different different events. But last year having worked with Amazon less seven years and actually having produced the very first Alexa developer event workshop. We learned a lot about the voice I community. And we felt like there was a need to bring everybody under one tat. So voice summit was launched. And we were really thrilled with the results. You were there. You know, people came from sixteen countries about three thousand people, and you know, the voice I area is here. And I think what we learned is that, you know, there are those that are fully embracing it, and they're those that are still yet to really understand fully what is happening in this market. It's a really exciting time. We we really look forward to your event to the Alexa conference in January and seeing the growth of the community just the tween, July and January and then where? We're excited to do it all over again next July in Newark, New Jersey. No, that's great. And you know, you've been doing it longer than we've been doing live events part of our business. People ask, you know. Is this a competitor know how many times I have to tell you know, right? Yeah. No. I get the same question. And I, you know, we're supportive of other community builders out there, we we know that the more community that is being built the better for all of us. And. So yeah. Big supporters of other conferences and other folks that could look from the outside as as competitors. But the fact of the matter is there are not enough events to bring people together based on the speed of technology and the rate at which things are happening. And there are so many companies and and sponsors that need to get their message out that you know, I think there's there's a limited supply. So we're supportive of more the more the better, and especially of good organizers people that do a nice job of bringing the community gather. And so definitely right back at you. Yeah. Yeah. We're very supportive of high quality of debts. And that's all the Gialle know how to do apparently Pete. Thank you for joining us beer. Our next guest is Brett can sell Brett's. Hello. Hello.

The future of voice-activated AI sounds awesome
"High endings will hall on the chief creative officer at rain where digital innovation company been really one of the pioneers of conversational way. I really early on and I'm also an adjunct professor designed at NYU. Excellent. So tell us a little bit about raid agency to what region renamed does all the clients. Work with us a little bit about rain, say the biggest thing, the rain has been up to the last couple years as pertains to voice is helping fortune one hundred companies build their digital ecosystems. I think one of the biggest misnomers as pertains voice is that it's only a skill or it's only in action. It's not. It's a new behavior. It's a new category. Yeah. And then of course those speakers, but that idea of new behavior voices ecosystem challenge. When you think voices a when you think about voice search and things like that that has nothing to do with your skill as do with your website. So voices is new behavior that's happening. That's such a bigger such a bigger challenge than just what's my skill, what's my action? So a lot of the work that rain has been doing is making sure that we're helping them go. She was now a next voice, but also have a hefty Bill ecosystem that's going to be able to leverage this disruption that's happening. So what's the best thing that you've seen here at the voice summit? I've seen a lot of interesting panels and a lot of keynotes. I have to sort of take that at a slightly higher level because the fact of this evening's this to us is a testament of mature voice because idea that you could have twenty four twenty five hundred people around voice conference. I mean, I feel like two three. I mean, the first voice interface we made was four or five years ago, and I remember very plainly telling my friends. Yeah, we're working on this voice thing and good luck with that. You know, in the two years later, Siri was out and I mean with Alexa, and then later Google even people like good luck with that. And now you're starting to see like we need to get on this right now. And so the fact that this is here in folks, you are also doing great events as well as a testament to this inflection point. This happening with tech and that is what I'm at the most excited about. So everybody here's super fast about voice. Everybody's really bullish maybe share with this. What's that one op. Stickle that one. Third, in the way that in your mind, from your perspective and your vantage point needs to get reckon with and cleared out before we take that next step change. Yeah, and it's funny because I was joking earlier that every slide you look and every guys up on state myself included some chart that was expert'll. Everything around voice is exponential growth, the adoption, its intelligent, all that stuff, and the nature of exponential curves. They have inflection points where you think it's an incremental thing, and then all of a sudden, oh my gosh, and you saw this happen even a month or so ago with the Google duplex model. And you're like way what I thought we were talking about speaker's. And now this thing's going to me and I don't know if it's a person or not. That's a different thing. People are thinking, this is an incremental disciplined. It is not is transformative exponential, and I think brands are need to count for that. So why do I think that I think brands for the most part been taking this wait and see posture with voice like friends. This is not a linear. Your thing. This is an exponential game. And so when you look at where that vectors out to most brands are built on your accuracy very silo. Do you have an innovation team in that building your brand team there, your website guy? Do we have a website you guys very fractured. We get it. I mean, again, we work with these large companies. We understand it, but that's not helping with voice. You have to work together to build systems. So I think the biggest barrier is brands not being able to move fast enough in think insistence because of the inherent bureaucracies that are there, I think are ways around it. Again, I, I don't think it's gloom and doom, but I think it's a matter of how do we work together and build our technical digital ecosystem as opposed to one off skill. One off action, maybe authorizer website. It's not how do you have one conversation across all your different touch points? Because again, this isn't going anywhere we joke about is this isn't like QR code or something like this voices, my natural interface when I plugged in, Alexa, five-year-old there. And she said, Hello. Alexa boot says Hello. And she says, Hello. Back, you don't need to use her infant. You don't need a manual to figure out how to interface that. So again, voice is not going away. It's just going to get more and more mature and we believe it's on an exponential curve.
