"voice systems" Discussed on The Voicebot Podcast

"All right. So the first thing i want to talk about is how big is this space. So data shows in the us. There are one hundred twenty seven million consumer so that's one hundred twenty seven out of about two hundred sixty million. Us adults who are using a voice assistant at some point while they're driving. Now what does this mean. Let's talk about the definition there. This is the broadest definition of water. Voice assistant use is in the car and that means they could be using bluetooth connected to the sound system it could mean they're using their apple carl carplay or android auto which are projection technologies which basically are just the smartphone but it takes over the screen the payment center screen as well. So it's really that smartphone experience again but it's a little richer than just using bluetooth connect to the phone and then we have the embedded or in car voice assistance provided by the auto manufacturers embedded in the infotainment systems sometimes their custom. Sometimes they're provided by one of the general purpose players like amazon or google so this is the broad definition so about one hundred twenty seven million in the us now. We have three years of data on this from the us around the car. We've been doing this report since two thousand nine hundred. This was the first year we actually added and the uk and germany and the future years. We hope to add a few more as well. So in germany we have twenty seven hundred million. But also you know it's twenty seven million out of an adult population of sixty nine million and then in uk it's just under nineteen million out of fifteen million total population. She's starting to get a sense of how large these these are now the us adoption rates more in terms of people who've tried it. However if you go to the uk in germany what you're gonna find there's a higher proportion of users who are actual regular user so we break this down into people who have occasionally use it. People were monthly active users and people who are daily users so those daily users being the power users using it just about every time they get in the car. So what we see. Is we see a lot more. The casual users in the us a much bigger proportion of the users use it very carefully not in a monthly or daily basis when you move into the uk. Germany they tend to be more monthly active users at least and a lot more daily active user so in terms of the percentage of people were using voice in the car. They tend to be more more to be power users.

The Future of Voice Technology: Where Should It Head Next?

"Where do you see the real future of voice. I mean from your perspective not from where the industry is going from the intersections that you know you personally as a creator. Let's see going. Thanks you know this gets into an. And i think we've touched on this a couple of times that the Where it's going is not is is being propelled by industry and transactional stuff whether the different sectors such as banking and financial sector. That voice is getting developed. Just for that. Then you have health and medical and where you know solutions on complex combined with your bracelet or wearable or in the automotive sector where it's all about the voice in the car and what system you're working with We still have as we all know where you only get five choices more or less. It's like the big phone carriers. We only have alexa google. You know there are smaller players like bixby and cortana which are are still very huge but all are are still separate. There is no one voice system that that we all interact with. You must choose a domain to be an and then and then that's monetize to try and get you to transact So when i think of where voices going We still have a long way to go to. Just get to what we primarily see and tv shows and movies right now which is a type of programming. But we don't interact really on a certain fundamental simple level with our. You know you're asking about a restaurant and it tells you about puppies whereas i think that a lot of the time what what is missing in the voice sector which which is part of this conversation i wanted to have was was. Why aren't we designing for a more simple human experience. Even though we need these transactions what time is the movie. get by me matt. My tickets make it all. Transparent fluid One one voice command. And i have my tickets waiting for me up the cinema but really you know we don't deal with on an emotional level voices not advanced enough with its algorithms to know how you feel with a word like in for So i think that we have such a long way to go with designing voice for humans for being human

"We just published the hereby consumer adoption report so been knee deep in this for a while a of late We just did a national consumer survey and October so we have really recent data. We put out a report. But i've been tracking this space in depth for years now in fact we had some some really early consumer survey data back in twenty eighteen. Sort of an early part. We talk about voice assistance. But i'm interested in the heroles or the your true wireless earbuds space just in general and i think it's really of high interest to my audience. Who are starting to wake up. To the fact that there's a lot of these devices is beyond The smart speaker and particularly the smartphone is really interesting but the smartphone without oils. Earbuds isn't really that interesting. I think for a lot of these stations. So so it's great to have you on You know given your background. But why don't we start out. Give people a little bit about your background. So obviously you're at qualcomm overseeing the highly relevant group but How did you get involved in this. You're a physicist by training. So did you always know you're going to be working at the silicon level Complete accident i stumbled into it. Come touchscreens graphics. Engines view listeners. Who who were at the raspberry pi on some of the silicon and the the blocks. I was some great colleagues on. I joined came to the radio. Cbs walls in two thousand thirteen Whole range of stuff they did. And of course of the full front was him. I think about point people realizing just just has special wireless soldier could become interrail realize why half the wise you you can get it. Wirelessly period of time as the asahi required by qualcomm's fantastic the engineering expertise of call common the breadth. The payers is just amazing. we megyn from day. One started looking around a digging around through the libraries finding while they have put into our new silicon. Which when i sing sing in the market now on very luckily very very privileged for me. I find myself running the voice music. Wearables business units Anything in this because wrapped around your wrist watch would would come with me and my team so very exciting place to be. A change is happening. Could well you've seen this. This industry grew up. Because i think he started Or very early in your career. You're working broadcom as well so you have. You've seen this over a number of years. Yes yes a lot of a lot of things going on but the the thing i think is amazing i think let me be a little bit brutally honest which perhaps he's unwise on these these accounts but if i look at t twelve twenty thirteen what was a headphone while it was. Maybe it was your little your little more headset. When you a hands free in the car maybe you put it on reached rounded back to get it when you listen to music but you know what else was it And then he looked. Today is small is wireless. Earbuds is in your pocket. It loss for hours and hours and hours know if you will when travelling very much. The moment travelling public transport rounded the big cities. You're more likely to see people with their butts in the with on. I think that's that's tremendous because it goes from a device that you you go and search out when he wants this to music device that you always have with you always have was literally on you On the processing and the silicon capability will put the interests devices. Means they are that they're becoming a was a bit like films becoming a real augmented piece of piece of hardware. You've got what you all the time offering you love. yeah. I i think it's if you go back to like twelve or thirteen. I think maybe i would add. I think i had like a set of bose or monster headphones. That i was listening to. So in those those would had some noise cancellation capabilities and in quality audio at us mostly just on the plane maybe occasionally at all I believe back in that period. Maybe a little bit. Before that. I had maybe a blue headset I've had a couple of job or heads that i would use. I would swap out if i was going to make a phone call so i had these multiple things. Those were pretty amazing and actually had this blue ant that actually had voice control. I could do a voice input like us a number but you had all these speed dials. You could use So and just to think about where we are today with the different solutions in the market. It's it's really been tremendous Just the the miniaturisation and the fact that we can have really high quality solutions all day. Long now i'm wearing some some bose headphones right now. Which i use to record because i like the way that it isolates me and sort of keeps all the back. Out nice microphones does all the gate and everything But throughout the day. Mostly i i have earbuds at and i have all different sorts and I use them for listening. But i use them for voices system. I use them for a lot of zoom meetings and conference calls. I think it's i think. Behavior has shifted. Maybe more in this space than any other over the last five or six years. I think when. I look at the what's driven it number. One is power consumption so if you look at our latest arrange of chips the fifty one hundred series. Thirty hundred series. We worked very hard last two or three years. The power time So it's it's you know two three four times less power than walls if you go back twenty sixteen seventeen. I'm what what what does that do. Well the battery get smaller ranch and the irony here you can shrink the battery and you can get the The lifetime to go so rather being maybe two three hours four hours. Maybe maybe more with a really big set of cans that easy work and i can put them in you. Ranked game four five six seven hours repair via but so it's not. It's not a kind of a concern that you you're going to use them. Use them up in the back in the case. And what am i gonna do. Can i rely on for a long time and the smooth and ally white and that does driven so fascinating things so number one given that i can put mine in my knees do i won't say yes potentially for for this bill. So now you know the voice ui. I'm won't once. I can wear them knocking tire and auto uncomfortable rival interface. I can go talk to the voice assistant. Thank goodness you know the the google's now's this wilted did all they did but the voice assistance have come alone. Am i living those feature films. I'm sitting there with this thing. In my ear unobtrusive comfortable lightweight. How gonna worry about the power On on yes. I'm getting this voice. She why we were very very closely with the likes of arizona. Google to make sure that we meet requirements. We got the right things you make it available to to our customers to end consumers so very exciting change in terms of the power consumption a low power we achieve allowing you to wear them all the time of the ones. He just wouldn't do it on. Be comfortable and then suddenly you've got this option to have a very exciting interface. You didn't have before to a lot of information through through the voice interface.

Education and Voice with Daniel Mittendorf

"I would also love to talk to you about you co-founded Luba and my little by. Dot, and that's a startup for educational voice experiences which gets excited just talking about it. So tell me more about Lavar. Live by first shortfall lauren voice in battle. Re Edit the second Ohio because us like a antibioticum in eastern Europe that is called Bar with one single. Oh so we went ahead and just edit the second. Oh This is like real focused on educational voice APPS and. Experiences for kids as. I have two kids on my own and my two co founders also have kids. And in early twenty twenty, there was an attack challenge by Amazon so we teamed up. With altria three of us and we came up with the idea for live Bouba and live about an educational voice experience where kids can compete against classmates from school when the are at home. So we came up with this idea even before corona hit. But the even better idea. Now, a kitsap sitting at home was closed and lockdown happening. So teachers can use our system at questions and quizzes for classes. Am The wild sitting at home can use our skill s or ski lists like the first ever. Life Moody Play Skill where you can play against your classmates Alexa Alexa device. To stay in the lobby and wait for the players to join, and then you can challenge your classmates, only your classmates and so you know who are playing against and then you get five questions that are. Teach out. Enters into our system and you win the round when you're answering the most questions correctly the shortest amount of time. I. Love that. That sounds like a lot of fun. So you get a little bit alerting. Competition in their and game game of buying it, which always makes it more fun education. I think we many of us believe and I have two kids. Myself is a place where it definitely needs to be reinvested and I love when I hear about technology reinventing education and I think voice has such a powerful of log conversation many conversations with Julie Daniel Davis about this. Voice in education and the opportunities there Nadan just I love it because not only. Is Re using tack to reinvent education but voices the different medium. There are kids who maybe they struggle with reading. But Craig are really good or label what they hear things they understand and so I love the idea yes you get the lecture from the teacher but using voices systems, the way of augment that type of learning even if you don't struggle with it, it's a different type of learning when you hear it and speak than when you read and so it Augmentin. Completes the education and outside of the classroom. Now, if I can use voices away to learn, it's a great unlock for education. So great job. Thanks.

Sentiment Analysis with Rana Gujra, Behavioral Signals CEO

"The CEO of they will say no Ronald withdraw and About signals. We were born out of research out of Usc AND SALES RESEARCH LOBS. What we do. Is WE USER? Specialized Algorithms to analyze human emotions and behaviors and boys and that's the primary focus area. Which is the tone of voice and the pitch on tonal variants? And what we do from that as we gather a lot of insights and we transform that data usable and actionable information. And then we apply that to words There is business. Kpi's and so if you think about The landscape out there from a comparative metrics. I mean the the most of the MVP and whites interactions offering. You see out there. They tend to focus on what is being said. And what we do is we introduced ability to understand how something is being said in addition to the what bar and that stuff through focusing on the pitch and tunnel variance and deciphering from that Emotions speaking styles behaviors. But we've gone a step further and Some recent work has been around predicting tat so We can actually predict what one of the participants that we're focusing on is going to do in the near future. What actions the person's GonNa take in the near future and we can do that very high level of accuracy so it's almost in terms of sort of getting into the really the minutia aspects of the state of mind and then predicting how or what actions will come out of this conversation so very high level. We can go dive into it. But that's Kinda what they do. That's great very cool so I guess I'm going to start by asking you a dumb question is it. Is it a given. I think it's a given. Most people follow voice assistance and have have kept up with some of these innovations. It seems like it's a given that a voice assistant that can conduct cinnamon analysis and that understands You know the way the words are being said is important if not more important than the actual words being said it seems like a voice system that can do that. We'll be able to outperform one. That can't is there ever a scenario where we wouldn't want sentiment analysis or is it just a given that any any voice assistant to be at that next level it needs to have that ability? Y- You're absolutely right and I think I think the answer is Or Yes I feel but like one way to answer. That is to take a step back and see how the whole arena albouy number actions as progress over the last decade or so so if you were to take a step back and say go back not that far back but say five to seven years ago We were speaking to the capabilities and technologies such as not and you and you know the speech taxed aspects to it as cutting edge bleeding edge. We were like very very enamored by it. You could audio and you could translate that into Or transcribed into actual words That's fascinating and you can do it. By incorporating various accents and various types of speaks and there is a cultural dialect. And all of that and that's fascinating and multiple languages as well but fast forward into twenty training. It's no cutting edge to commodities capabilities to commodities tool that that companies offer and Some of the larger players are really throwing that capability in the market literally for free. So that's that's one thing right. That's changed in the in the dynamics of interaction. The second thing is Can You understand the specific context behind Behind the voice conversations for example. If there's a conversation between a doctor and patient You can. We're the speech to audio. But do you understand what's being said? You understand the lingo. Join us. The main knowledge behind that conversation. And there's a lot of work that's been done in that that most acidic areas are there people who have focused on Doctor patient conversations and others about focused on spiteful spousal conversations does others were focused on between the salesperson and our client So we understand those things now and we could we could. We can apply those that that context. What hasn't changed is understanding state of mind right and so for example. I mean you and I are talking. we're not just You know Focused on understanding what you're saying which is actually we're just saying but I'm really very interested in how you're saying something because it's very important for me and for you to relate to that because what you're going to say next is not just going to be based on what I'm saying but how I'm saying something but that I mean it or not and You know that's incredibly important and you're a and that's what makes the conversation a conversation otherwise it's a single Transcript of One side of transactions. Which is I tell you to do something and you either do it or not do it and you respond back with whether you do it or not do it. That's how we talk for today right and the promise was that virtual assistance will become real assistance. I mean they'll they'll replace that human We need on our lives whether it's A secretary or a business assistant or a social assistant. Or you know a companion who who we can talk to Hasn't happened yet right. And it doesn't I mean as a billions of dollars have been spent More and more languages supported by assistance and more and more skills or attitudes insistence that can door but that have opened doors they can Show the cameras. They can do complex math. They can tell US jokes and play music. But it's one sided. There's no conversation happening and that's because we don't like to converse with things that don't understand You know How I feel.

First Aid Advice from your Smart Speakers

"Here and I want to tell you about using your smart speaker for first aid information. This is a Canadian stadium. I want to tell you a little bit about the result of this. This was done out of the University of Alberta. And what they did was. They looked at the four common voice assistant so Lexi Google Home Siri and Cortana and they asked at one hundred twenty three questions about thirty nine different. I eight topics and they compare that to what is generally accepted guidelines from the Canadian. Red Cross comprehensive guide for First Aid. And what they found was that Google and Lexi were the top two performing voice assistance and Google actually outperformed Lexi a little bit the numbers there for Google home. Were Ninety eight percent accuracy as far as recognizing the topic and providing advice Within the guidelines was about fifty six percent of the time the complexity of the response was right at a grade. Eight level for lexi. Lexi recognized the topics ninety two percent of the time and gave advice nineteen percent of the time that matched with the accepted advice and the responses were rated at an average grade ten level for. Siri and Cortana. The results were so poor that they actually couldn't even analyze it. So That's interesting You know those numbers on one hand depending on you look at it. They might seem low on the other hand. They might seem high for me. Personally I actually interpret these as being quite positive because we are so early on in the voice technology industry that I think this is only going to get better and the fact that we already have these types of numbers so early on is actually a good thing now. I'm not saying that you need to or you should rely on this for your first aid advice but if you are in a pinch and you want to at least get a little bit of ice. This may be an interesting way to go about getting it. So I'm sure these numbers are GONNA improve. We'll have to keep an eye on this But there you go so for now. If you really in a pinch maybe talk to your voice system and find out what to do about a

Sound In Hospitality With Andreas Cooper of Smart Voice Systems

"The really started with me In automation so I started company here in New Zealand importing boarding automation products. And then you know as that grew and we soul you know. Wait where some of this stuff going. We initially stole. Alexis Pataudi so that native Software that will kind of going to work on and as soon as we sold that if you're in New Zealand during this part of the world and you just have a small amount of vision and you can look across to the US and see the trends that you got a huge advantage. A you know again to bring that back and to be ready when it when it becomes available here in New Zealand. So for example we In my research I just Touched base with David the CEO of of Lara On link thin ice it reached out and and it was it was that simple and and over the last couple of months saw six months to a year being just that relationship building that trust looking applications working around the small limitations that we have he base in what Amazon Lakes. Let's do and and yet very excited to bring voice technology because we say a booming. I think the rest of the world anyone with any form of you know business. Now still vision concede. This is going to be big and you just have to be. I guess ahead of everyone else in you know Work around the things that are limiting brought out. I agree I think that. Yeah it's it's you have to be a head of everything and so in order to do that. You have to experiment. And I think that that's what's slowing a Lotta people down as they're afraid to try something different than what they've been doing because what they've been doing seems to be solid and it probably is right now but who knows. I mean even two years. It's just been flying by like what people have been coming up with and experimenting with and the things that are on the horizon. It's just it's absolutely insane and I think that it could be one of those things. I don't know if you know about this story but When NETFLIX STARTED UP. They actually came to blockbuster in pitch the idea on blockbuster said no and now gone so. It's one of those things where it's like. You need to have your finger on the pulse or something like that could happen. One of the big Industries we oversee say is the hospitality Industry Hotel Rose Hotel rooms and so that that traditionally is aquatic. Slow moving old school Industry so to come in with technology and and technology that is quite new You know you've you've got to break down a lot of wolves and you really have to paint the picture for them and with a lot of hotels and hotel rooms for example they they they need to know what is the benefit. They're not gonNA put any device in a room. You know Outside of the necessities unless it can you know in essence dry revenue Helped with operating efficiency You know and just being an incredible. You know device so we're excited for that one but you know it has been and it is still a long process to breakdown and educate and and yet again we have to hang in there But I guess pretty obvious they. Ju- course you can see one of these devices if in every single ocho because it just makes so much sense when I think that you know staying in hotels is kind of the pass a Kinda thing to do. Now there's Airbnb and home away and all those places I was actually chatting with is a nonprofit that is trying to promote like local hotels staying in the hotels rather than airbnb because they want to bring business into the city itself rather than the private industry and everything so it the way I see it is bring in the new technology to the old way of doing things kind of merging the old and the new together and I feel like that should be something that the hotels that are used to like doing things the way they do things it would be. Maybe like what's the word I'm looking for an easier transition into new so it's just like a piece of the new so they're being like kind of cool you know without having to go completely into a different model yet we have seen that and that term. Cool you say You know to Catego- categorize a hotel We've seen and we Discussing with David in the UK and even hotels In the US. Some of those cool brain those retro or the millennial hotel rooms those ones. I guess the ones that would say the biggest adoption. You know You you think of Cool Adecco or and all that stuff. Those are the ones that definitely I've seen this ending like yes. Were Millennial hotel as it were We have all the latest tech and all these different beaches and boys for them. I think is easier adoption than than A hotel and I I think Iraq on the on the BNB Saudi if I may We we think This voice Solution for obeying base is is is if not as strong as the hotel industry for example It originally started with ebbing be and and hosting but what AIRBNB hosts they want to remove as much Pain all work from hosting AIRBNB as possible. So what we propose is with the Blouse subway and voice. We can see program in into the speakers all the key information to guests could ever ask or want simple things. Like what is the Wifi Code? You know How do you turn on the dishwasher? How do you turn on the style of some of these things that are too easily? When you go to someone else's home you know you can find them a little bit more difficult so by simply asking the speaker we can pre program in you know Exactly those those key instructions so the host isn't isn't bombarded with questions you know At at at every every hour of the day and and taking that joy or the the benefits of hosting airbnb out of you know Out of it so yeah. We're excited because I think with Israel good application there while a system this is fascinating Can you explain a little bit because this is what I mean like? I don't quite grasp it. I get it but I don't get it Can you explain how? What the Valera Voice Software does like. What is it that this is doing? That's different than just like a a smart speaker. Plopped into a hotel room or an AIRBNB but first and foremost the one of the biggest strength. Is THEY The Patent Pending accuracy engines. So so when it comes to voice right now It's still a reasonable margin of error. So when you ask a question of your Google Alexa Speaker. First and foremost it's going to probably use the search engine. That's built in if you're programmed into custom routines oil commands specific to you.

Voice in Canada - Amazon Voice Interoperability Initiative

"Amazon has started voice assistance on a single device to give you an example of some of the companies that have agreed to this initiative will of course Amazon for Lexi Microsoft for Cortana and there are a bunch of other ones as well and the idea behind this is that they want to make the devices compatible with multiple voice assistance so that a person is not necessarily limited to one voice assistant they may find that one voice system is better for certain uh-huh and another one is better for others and Amazon has actually taken the initiative to do so what's interesting is that the companies that are not part of this voice interoperability initiative are Google Assistant Apple Siri and Samson bixby the other big big ones why that is we're not sure but I think is still be very interesting to see how this develops over time for now I think it's a great idea it shows that Amazon is very thinking and they recognize that they're not the only voice assistant and well time will tell how this how this plays out very interesting news development so if you have multiple choices since you may be able to use multiple voices on a single device in the future all right take care talk to you that brief cast dot

The Future of Healthcare with Voice Technology

"Turned the tables a little bit and in fact i was recently asked to appear on another podcasts the data talk podcast which is hosted by mike delgado and we talked about all types of scenarios scenarios and implications of the intersection of voice technology and healthcare we actually even get a little bit futuristic and i paint some of my own pictures as well as some pictures of some colleagues and people that i've interviewed on my own pod podcast about where we're going with this technology so mike was really generous chris and allowed me to share the content of his podcast episode here with you the listeners of my podcast so i hope you will enjoy it and with without any further i do. Let's get right to it. This is the data talk podcast with mike delgado and myself enjoy. Hey friends welcome to talk a show where we talk with against science leaders from around the world today. We're talking to dr terry fisher. He's a physician. He's a professor at the university of british columbia. He's also the host and founder of voice always first health podcast as well as alexa in canada. He is super busy doing tons of things and have not gary fisher. You're with us how you doing terry. I'm doing great. Thank you so much. Thanks so much inviting me. It's a real pleasure to be here and if there's one thing that's the most accurate of anything that you said there. Is that a busy so i like okay your doctor like you're busy enough being a doctor and then like to add to that you're teaching courses which which is awesome that you're doing how to help the next generation of doctors and then you're like as a hobby. You're leading these tech podcasts. <music> around boys and healthcare is is curious like how do you do it all which had an easy answer for that. I don't know it's i. I guess the biggest thing that i can say that is simply. It's i love it right. It's a passion and it's a hobby so all the stuff outside of my professional practice my medical practice. I got involved this voice technology thing the more learn about it. The more i love it the more i become enthralled with this technology and i guess that makes it easier to spend a lot of time and i do spend a lot of time on it. I've got a young families well. So of course you know wow so your dad to dad yeah so i thought that my my wife and my two kids and so obviously within all of this there the priority to so i wanted to spend time with them so but but really to be honest you know when not focused on my family. I'm working on my hobby which is voice technology and podcast that sorta stuff so tell me about. How did you get interested in invoice technology. That's a great question so i would say first of all that my my three base passions. I've talked about this a little bit already but is israeli technology healthcare and education <hes> before i did medical school. I did an education degree. So i became a teacher then it went into medical school but it was about a two to three years ago when i started i hearing a little bit about voice technology in being a podcast sort of a techie at heart that sort of got me intrigued and i started looking into a little bit and and actually that time <hes> for example wasn't even available candidate and i am i am in canada <hes> <hes> in vancouver and so i thought oh that's interesting but yet i'm still very interested in what amazon's doing this technology so i started to look into a little bit more and and i realized that there were hints that was going to be starting to come to candidates soon. I thought this might be a really interesting way to put my passion together of technology. <hes> <hes> education and also health started thinking about the healthcare implications of this and that's when i decided to launch my websites started with alexa in canada <hes> which is more of a a consumer base but also <unk> voice professional based website where talks about generally what alexis all about what it can do. It's also very applicable to people in united states by the way even those called lexin in canada. If there are any concerns i do try to highlight those and then as that developed i am. I launched what's flash briefing which is like a mini podcast you subscribe to on alexa and then with my medical background. I thought this is start to learn more about it. I thought this is really going to change healthcare and that's what i thought okay. Now i need started podcasts called voice. I health and that's how that started in. It's really highlighting anything that has to do with the intersection between healthcare and voice technology <hes> <hes> and ultimately it was a way to combine the three passions right healthcare technology in education because that's kind of what i see as as what to do with these with these bathrooms you mentioned before we get into this. You mentioned that you were a teacher first and then you went to medical school. Tell me about that. That's interesting yeah i. I was in school for a long time to throw it to make things even seen little more crazy. If you want to put this is not gonna surprise me with you. You know i actually actually hold four degrees so i did. I did a bachelor of science in anatomy and cell biology and experimental medicine and and then i did a masters of science in <hes> sorry i said that wrong batter science in anatomy cell biology biotechnology than i did a masters of science science in experimental medicine then i did my education degree and then i did <hes> medical school followed by family practice residency and my sports medicine fellowship so i've been i literally in school for for our wasn't school for decades. Yeah your whole life pretty much so yeah yeah but it's not which is one of the really interesting thinks everybody's got different life experiences and i've been able to now to bring these together into this this field which is just a click together and what can i say. It's a it's a lot of fun so when you first started looking at alexa voice technology what were your initial reactions to type of skills that were available double or things that you could do with it. Yeah i think the first thing that sort of struck me and again it goes back to the education. Idea is that when it comes to the medicine because he is every knows you can do you can listen to music you can set timers you can set alarms and all that kind of stuff but i started thinking about it in terms of being a tool for education education and how somebody can ask the device whatever it is it's on their mind to learn from the device and so whether that is is like what are the symptoms of strep throat right <hes> that's a very basic basic skill and that sort of thing that i was starting to think about another a skill that sort of took a little bit to the next level was a skit out that can provide you with. I eight advice so you're chopping up a carrot. You cut your finger and rather than having to foot flip through first aid guide. If you don't know how to take care of it you can simply ask the device. How do i do i do with a cut finger and so those sorts of educational and informational skills i think we're the first level where really got me started started thinking about it but as i sort of delve into this a little bit more i realize that it's is not just about education because we're we're now having conversations with these devices and that brings the the <hes> the available all applications to a whole new level particularly now recently in the last couple of months at amazon announced that the devices are hip compliant and so now they can store to store personal health information. So what does that mean. It means that you can now start to to use these devices as surrogates for care providers mean give example <hes> is a skill out there that can can give you medication reminders based on your medication schedule so one area or one population one segment of the population that is really finding finding he's beneficial are people that are aging and there's this whole movement called aging in place where people want to maintain their independence than want to stay home but sometimes that's difficult because for example eh forget to take their medication that may forget when they have appointments they can become forgetful but various things and they need people to remind them about these things and also remind them of what they should be checking as far as health well now. You don't need to rely on your doctor a carried us put a device in your home and it does that for you and so these devices i think and i believe the way we're going. We're going to gradually take on more and more of a rule of care ada care provider <hes> somebody who can somebody see that's the way i use the term now somebody who can who can help take care of you. I think that those are some beautiful examples and i mean i can certainly see myself or something like that in the future i wanna get a reminder on something something but i also love the example you gave around getting some information on how to diagnose something like is this something i need to go to a doctor about in trying to like go through some sort of conversation with the ball around my symptoms right right. Well let me i'm going to paint a picture for you. I think we're going to kind kind of this. Is this is not here yet but i truly do not think that we're too far off so here's this here's the scenario magin you wake up and you have a sore ortho. You don't feel well. You know something's wrong. Something is not right and so the way it is now. You know what would we do. We would think okay well now. I'm going to have to make a call. Dr make an appointment go on in need not to call into work sick. They make arrangements for my kids. Get in the car drive to the doctor. Bla-bla-bla get history. Maybe the doctor does a throat swab. Says yeah looks like like you might have strep throat. I'm going to send you know the pharmacy. Get your drugs. Go home and check in. If things go bad whatever it's quite an ordeal when you're feeling probably all that stuff is the last thing you wanna do so. Let's imagine though you were just a little bit further in the future and what happens is you wake up and your voice system says good morning to you you say good morning and just by the tone of your voice it can tell the something's not right because it knows your voice and thinking back to that. It's a very fascinating area called vocal biomarkers will come back to that but i ask you questions like how are you feeling and you say you know what i'm actually not feeling. That great got a sore throat doc shivering and start to ask you about symptoms just like your physician does so you go through that and using some algorithms some a._i. The natural language understanding it gives you sort of a probability and says you know what based on what you've told me. There's a high probability that you have strep throat. How would you like it. If i were to order a strep test to your home had delivered right now -sego sure to what does this word ties into amazon amazon's brilliant here quite frankly so this amazon amazon so it automatically orders a strep test drone on. You've got it a drone lance at your home. You pick up the strep test now. The strep test west is wi fi enabled the smart old so it automatically taps into your home wifi network and you do the test and your voice assistant talks to you. It tells you how to do it. You do the strep test it then analyzes it it gives you the results and it says yes. You have strep throat. You need some antibiotics. What is now. I know from our previous interactions that you're allergic to penicillin. I already know that 'cause i know your personal health record and so i'm not going to bother to ask him questions about that 'cause we. We will be efficient but i'm going to if it's okay with you. I'm going to order some antibiotics for you. We're gonna have those delivered to your home fantastic so little while later another drone drops drops off your antibiotics. You go to your front door. You pick them up. You start taking them and your voices starts talking you through

"voice systems" Discussed on The Voicebot Podcast

"Smart speakers and he can just say it. You'll need to quit or sometimes even on the smartphones like damn along with Bixby for example or some of the Google are some of the android devices you just click a button and you automatically ended up voice systems so it's a low friction point for accessing voice search and we expect a lot more of that to be taking place into become a much bigger percentage of all boysearch going forward so given night is a setup <hes>. I'll start with you've been were there any things in terms of the nature of the structure of this report four or some of the things around the changing voice search nature before we get into the data that you wanted to comment on well. You know I guess <hes> I guess just what you said about. <hes> you know voice search search you'll previously be being considered. <hes> you know quitting the microphone and Google Google search box from your mobile device <hes> and transitioning onto actual <hes> different platforms right. I'm GonNa these platforms <hes> you know as as the word to describe these systems like Google System Amazon Alexa although I know you you've had some on that but <hes> transitioning onto those platforms and <hes> as a result <music> algorithms being <hes> different right <hes> and I think that's <hes> what is beginning to firm up <hes> you know from from a marketing perspective is is <hes> that the devices <hes> you know do have their own <hes> logic to them that may be different than what <hes> <hes> you know Google search which you know obviously the dominant one <hes> you know cap you know does now and <hes> for that reason <hes>. That's why it may feel like there's a lot of confusion and there's a lot of <hes> questions about this space and there's you know how people are always asking how to take advantage of it <hes> and the answer is you know this is a this is a new world. There are some concepts on subsidies similar. You know just like any new technology building on the last technology but <hes> really there's a different. <hes> you know <hes> different behavior here. It's going on different variables that brands and companies can pull on to got the results. They want so <hes> you know that that's that's. That's what was really exciting to me is is that you know that whole thesis there was really validated by this report <hes> to me <hes> and <hes> you know so I look forward to to dog and other details you you did a lot of research your your knee deep into the responses and particularly how should have differently and different services. We're some of your key takeaways just from the experience of trying boysearch advise him across multiple services. I would say the more sixteen sixteen answers were better particularly smart speaker. <hes> I was also surprised by how many options I was given on smart display because I have an Amazon Echo show most of the time when I wasn't just giving one I was always given four results. Adults which is Kinda surprised by wasn't three or five it was four for some reason <hes> it was also very clear that Google owning its own knowledge graph is particularly with local information particularly of Google maps ops was able to provide context understand my queries better than Amazon Alexa who which was pulling from yell it would actually understand that I was looking for like a restaurant with the kid's menu instead of giving me a restaurant out with kids and the title for instance and just that sometimes the with more information than I needed. I would say the one thing that I took away because I was involved in a lot of the the in-depth analysis as well. I wanted to make sure that I had that personal experience working with his voice assistance and things volume with these questions as well as not just trying to one of the things that I took away with how bad the voice systems are an answering a lot of these questions. Yes it's one thing to general now's questions and I think the voice assistants have voice. Assistant providers had invested a lot and things. The geography history mathematics these common Trivia based questions and then other things like weather right <hes> and they're really good at those things so I I read an interview people about all all of these other research all this other research has been done about the ability of voice this intro questions correctly and then we get in there with brands some of which are names that are not commonly and the dictionary for example <hes> in dead the voice systems weren't very good at recognizing some of which are common words in the dictionary which Dan the voice assistance misinterpreted because they the wasn't sure you're talking about a brand or you're talking about the actual term and so when we went to you this idea of evaluating voice search for the concept of brands they just did much worse. There's a lot of work to be done both on the side of the voices two platforms but then also on the side of of the brands themselves in order to be able to provide that information mixture surface right and I've I find that there are certain brands that across the board none the voice assistants knew for instance sprite. I come to getting alpher fairy as definition the there is some of those words that have other meetings and the ghetto you just could not not do it <hes> great example okay so let's keep moving here so let's talk about the market data so one of the things we like to talk about it which there's Bob is. There's a lot of technology out there that has a ton of promise but it doesn't really matter that much until it starts getting adopted and so that's what we're always looking for looking for signals that consumers actually care and are incorporating these behaviors under their daily life and at the signal us this is going to become important voice. Search clearly at this point is starting to to reach that standard and one of the things that we would point out here is that <hes> just over fifty eight percent of U._S.. Consumers in January twenty nine hundred and said they were using board search or had used boysearch at least one so. Let's you know about forty percents of the three deaths have used voice search to have not forty-one percent and not use worth research <hes> but that's a significant number of U._S.. Adults in our sample and the only thing that we thought was interesting was that while you know just over fifty eight percent of consumers had used voice search overall eighty eight percent of smart speaker owners had used voice search so that's now really surprising if you're familiar with voiced by data and some other consumer research we've done where very often asking general or knowledge question is that the top Moesha's use case or sometimes competing up there with music <hes> in terms of even level of frequency but it's really up they're very high and so this fact that smart speaker owners were more likely to use voice search didn't really surprises that much <hes> and we believe it's actually influencing the overall level of voice search as as people become more accustomed asking questions to voice assistance in the home. They're using it on the other services able. Would you like to comment on that in terms of elevations. I'm not surprised because if you want to convert someone to doing boysearch make them do this research because after doing this I exclusively use Google assistant on my phone now to ask like quick questions and I and definitely a Google assistant convert but I have noticed that I have increased my us after doing this and because I know what they can handle and Noah kind of answers I'll get so more confident now in using that personal. It's pretty amazing. I I have to say that presented some data last summer just a year ago I sort of Voice Summit in New Jersey and said Hey you smart speakers essentially early training wheels for using voice on smartphones because we saw already that significant percentage of smart speaker honor said they're using voice more on their phones. What do you think this will lead to? What do you think the impact of this as well? <hes> you know the the the impact. Is You know the <hes> <hes> the do you know there's so much data right. There's so much going on at things are moving so fast now <hes> especially in business you know that voices just becoming this fictional as easy way to <hes> to to get to do to answer questions right or or get what you want <hes> and <hes> you know so you know long-term. I mean we're definitely looking at <hes>. You know a voice only world like everybody here has has talked about and you know it's really manifesting and you know just from personal experience. <hes> some of my friends children <hes> are not even using computers anymore right there just using Alexa. They don't really the the computer anymore. <hes> you know the P._C.. As we we'd no right or or the screaming using Alexa basically and and you know stone and stuff like that and so <hes> you know long-term. It seems like <hes> you know we're just we're just heading in that you know we're using <hes> <hes> <hes> voice <hes> to to get what we want and <hes> but again they are back back to the sprite example in the beginning. <hes> you know I I it's it's a it's becoming a <hes> a knowledge grab that that that brands need to to you know do certain things to get on right. It's not copying Google. You know Google's a private company right. It's not like it's it's not like <hes> all these things just exist and it comes up and so so <hes> you know back to spread examples brands really need to get on the voice six assistance in order to be able to be found <hes> in order to to classify themselves as relevant to certain results and so <hes> you know. I think if that's you know larger picture that that's really what we're talking about here. We're talking about search. <hes> you know just because the world's changing search being performed voice just like these data shows and <hes> brands happen to to put themselves for yeah absolutely well. They shouldn't take some things that we used to schools. We ended desktop speaking available on mobile we we almost all the time they've been on mobile going forward. It was just easier faster more convenient and then I think we're finding a new classes things that are just easier to do with boys my all search but a certain percentage of searches is going to be.

"voice systems" Discussed on Journey to $100 Million

"I've been giving talks about that particular topic to different groups of people, and I've engaged a lot of conversation about it and one of the objections that comes up often about Smarr speakers in particular is that it's always listening and people are fearful right now that things like the Google home, and the Amazon echo are listening to your conversations and at that can be recorded and that somehow could be used as an invasion of privacy. Now, it's justifiable concern. I guess, but what I always do is. I put it into perspective with what people are already revealing about themselves online and through their phones. Look at your phone. Look all the apps that you have on your phone and just think about how much of your life. You have already exposed through websites and through all of the apps on your phone. Basically, your phone is a diary of your life and in great detail. You probably have used them passwords in there. You can get to your Bank to there. You have all of your correspondence. Whether it's text message Instagram, Email, you name it all the web pages you've been to. It's all recorded everything that you do on your phone and everything that you do on your laptop or computer, it's all recorded. There's a archive of somewhere you have given up so much privacy already that when you compare that to what you actually speak in your house, and the very low volume of data that you provide and meaningful data the provide through speech in your house or in your office. It's incompatible. You have already surrendered ninety nine percent of the data that could potentially be exposed with the other one percent being from voice systems. So I get the concern that you don't want to be recorded. But when you compare that to what you've already revealed to the world into these other systems that are out there and exposed to systems like Facebook and your text messaging and your phone company. You're already out there like you are way out there and a little bit of speech. A couple of minutes of speech, that's potentially recorded at night in your house or in your office during the day is miniscule compared to what you've already exposed. Now. The good news is that systems like Google and Amazon take your privacy, very seriously. Now, there's probably been incidences of hacking. Or accidental exposure? But what they say they do in practice is. They don't actually record all of audio what they record generally speaking. And this is probably not one hundred ten correct. But generally, they are recording one second at a time. And analyzing what you just said if they don't hear the keyword than discarded, and they continue to record one second time laws discard until you say, the keyword, and then they record until you're phrases complete. And now they have a two or three second sound bite that they send off to their service in the cloud analyze what you said. And then they take the action. So there's certainly an element of trust. And absolutely get that. But when you compare it to what you've already exposed through your phone in your browser. And then also the speed of execution through a smart speaker or voice assistant. It's in comparible. These smart speakers these voices systems, they're going to take. Over the world. We're going to look at our phones in ten years. The phones of today, and we're going to view them as today. We've you pagers they're going to be antiquated. We're not going to use. We're going to think that typing with our thumbs. It's just absolutely ridiculous. So I don't want you to have a fear of voice. Speakers and voice technology is the way with future for sure and quicker. You can get to understanding those concepts and then trying to apply them to your business and your marketing the better off you'll be. Thank you for listening. I hope you heard something you can implement in your business

Is Alexa a fad?

"Talking tech is brought to you by wicks dot com. Create and publish a stunning website all from one powerful platform, go to wicks dot com to create your very own professional website today. That's w I x dot com in stay tuned after the show to hear you can take advantage of special offer for talking tech listeners. Talking tech fans, you've heard me talk a lot about voice assistance from Amazon and Google in Siri over the years. I think they're pretty fascinating now to be a Stengel from willow tree thinks they're a passing fad. He's the CEO of an agency called willow tree. He works with a lot of different companies, including Pepsi and HBO, and he's going to tell you why he thinks those speakers may not be around that long. So to take the floor. Sure problem with voice today is that when you have a linear voice in invoice out experience when you ask a lecture something and the wait for elected respond. You are now receiving voice. At also hundred thirty one hundred fifty words a minute. But we as humans can read it to fifty. So it becomes a painful painful experience to transmit to Alexa, and then listen to Alexa, respond. What you really want is a voice voice to receive or voice system to receive what you're asking for. But then to transmit back to you graphically or in text, so what's your prognosis? So these species going away, I think over time they will go away, or at least they will become only speakers that are primarily there to listen to us. But the fact is the phone is going to be able to do that. And it's always in our pocket most people sleep with it like that they're bad. So having these speakers all over the house seems to be solving a problem that we're not sure it's going to be a problem for long to us. It's a little bit analogous to a phase such as a oh well in the late nineties where we all used AOL. And we, you know, remember, the worldwide, weight, etc. We all used it. Because it seems it was so promising and so close, but it wasn't quite there. We think that's where voice is going to get awareness phase right now. But as soon as these multi modal experiences become popular where you can speak. And then you get the graphical response people are gonna start asking themselves. Why do I need speakers that are separate from? My phone's route the throughout the house. So to everyone listening that has a phone that uses series series been out since twenty eleven and I know that it's gotten better. But most people don't they think it's still pretty pretty awful. How do you tell them that? These phones are going to be better with voice, in of course, of people Bixby in that that's a big disappointment to people in the Samsung world as well. As we move voice to very specific use cases, for example, asking voice to for your Bank balance, and then the Bank balance shows up. Your phone asking for directions and the direction raises already doing that within their app, they have a little microphone, but I think we're gonna see the microphone button hopping up everywhere where you just push it asks, you know, give the give the address into ways, and then and then it works just like a normal app would in terms of transmitting back you I think lots and lots of users are going to go a hot now, then why voice can help me and wide so powerful. So what's the timeframe these apps? They're gonna start coming out in the next six months or so big way and within within the next six to twelve months apps are going to be more voice slash visual.

This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. A Molly would. All this week. We're partnering with seen it reviews. Talking about the big trends in consumer technology as we head into the holiday shopping season. And it appears that the smart home is finally a thing for a lot more people in two thousand seventeen almost twenty five million smart speakers were sold, according to the consumer Technology Association. So far this year nineteen million more smart speakers have already shipped and holiday shopping has just begun. And once these gadgets are in a house they can act like a gateway drug people buy more connected devices. So they can have Alexa, or Google control everything in the house. Rich Brown is an executive editor at c net reviews, covering appliances, and smart homes. He said this year smart devices are migrating into the kitchen now that WI FIS a little bit more ubiquitous, and that frankly that technology's better on on the side there may be a little more for real. You know, I'm not sure how many people are actually using these voices systems. To help out in the kitchen beyond basic stuff like set a timer or make a shopping list, but we have found that the recipe function with Google speakers. Especially in the Google smart. Displays is actually really good. Like the way it responds to your voice commands is actually pretty intuitive or it can pause when you're working through a recipe can pick up where you left off when you resume the conversation is actually very a very natural way to work with the machine to make something in the kitchen. What about the the privacy debate are seen it users coming and saying, okay, sure. But I'm only going to buy the one that doesn't have a camera built in all the time privacy is huge. And that's probably the thing we hear about most and reader comments. Right. So the Facebook portal video chat device that one. I mean, come on Facebook put that out there. I'm not sure what they were hoping for. But anybody who's sort of predicted that there would be a lot of consumer resistance, and the reviews would be critical given Facebook's own privacy issues me, I think they call that one. Interestingly Google has that that can. Free display like all the home hub that just put out a month or two ago. And that one has all the functions of the other smart displays, but no camera. But you know, the privacy concerns, we only have these companies for the most part at their word in terms of what they do with your data, and how will they protect it. So it's leap of faith for consumers for sure. How about some of these other sort of nascent parts of the smart home, like smart locks is that something that is appealing to the mainstream. Consumer or does it just mean, you're also giving tech support along with your gift? Yeah. I would be really wary about giving anybody a smart lock as a gift unless you're you're pretty good at installing that kind of thing. If you're thinking about other smart, home, stuff, smart security, and smart cameras. Those are pretty popular as a category in general, and the cameras are really pretty easy us kind of plugged them in get them on the internet. And then you can view it over your phone. There's no real installation that needs to go unless you want to attach to a fixed point on your wall or something. You know, it sort of depends on how much screwdriver time you want to take on or how ready you are to hire. A contractor to come in for somebody. Rich Brown is an executive editor at c net reviews.

"Because I, you know, I would assume that most people who are going to buy that phone would be doing it for plex. You know, I don't think it's distinguished relate in any other way. I think that's the major focus of the phone. So duplex doesn't save you a bunch of time. Time than they might sell one to Larry Page's mom or something. Yeah, I actually want the Google pixel XL because it's the law. It's six point, three inches wide, and I use my phone for. I can actually do most of my work on my phone except for writing code and right writings. If writing it's going to be interesting to watch. I, I have high hopes for duplex. I, you know, we talked about this on this week in voice when they went through that controversial, press conference in unveiled it. If you told me that every person I've spoken to on the phone at a business over the last five years was a robot and not a human being, and that was never disclosed to me. I would yawn and say, okay. You know, I, I don't view. There's an ethical debate that people wanna have around at that. I don't understand. I really don't care if it's robots talking to me robots talking to my robots or my robots talking to other Newman's. I don't care if it's closed. I don't really see a need for that. It's just whatever makes my life easier signed me up. Right. I mean, uncanny Valley, I think really came out of the gaming industry where you know things started to become a little too perfect. Given that you have mass destruction and murder and mayhem extra mayhem on the these video games when it got to be too realistic, it was sort of squeamish. It was like, I really want to see that. I wanna see the fake version because I know in my mind, it's fake and nobody really got hurt. So it's it's, I'm not sure if it has the power. If it's just voice said, it does if it's video game, but certainly. I would prefer as a designer of voice systems. I always try to make sure that my. The people hearing these devices? No, that it's the computer. I don't try to make it sound human because I just think that sort of freaky. I definitely you know, when it comes to the computer sounding like a person, Barry intrigue Ray interested to see how battle be, how fair in a generation Alie you know, children right now are growing up, you know, like voice I vice, they actually prefer not actually be freaked out by, you know, computer sounding mar human. Actually, you know, like thing when a computer sounds robotic that it's knowing frustrating if we're grandpa myself. I agree that no Erie freaky goodwill duplex with under the guise or leave him by being personally, someone either stand year, especially a personal call and like business, three big it would do because you just expecting to get the outcome done. You know, talking compensation definitely interested to see. You know if this candy valley idea will continue the same way, you know as if you grew up with it, we just become to accept it, or will you still, or is it something more intrinsic Guinness? Oh, you know, we just we don't want anything else out or act like if it's human, you know, that's just my thought on that moving to story number four. The second cohort of Amazon's Alexa accelerator powered by Techstars is over. So one of the coolest things in voice, I think is this Alexa accelerator, and it's only as good as the comes. That they've managed to curate and they've done such a great job, novel effect, sensible object. A lot of great companies came out of the first cohort and really sort of set the stage for showing the world. All the interesting things that are possible with the ecosystem. And now they've just completed a second code word, incidental. I'm gonna start with you. Tell me there's a number of companies. They're all listed in the article. Tell me which company of this cohort that you liked the best or that you're most bullish on. So I, I really liked reading core because the first name McCain aligned. When I read on presently, I was like, you know, given that they're going to allow companies through calls and other communications, their clients and such. I wonder, you know, especially from targeting restaurants, another small businesses, you know, wonder what will happen between interaction between what they're doing..

"We have an analog system on a normal repeater network, right? That's that's all analog. When we looked at l. TR Motorola type, two type one and e Dax trunk systems. You had a digital control channel right? That was that computer packet that tells the radios where to go. But all of the talk groups on those systems are analog. That's why you can take any scanner out there and punch in a voice challenge for a trunk system and scanned through them. And you would hear what was going on on a trunk system. You may not be able to follow him because you not trunk tracking, but you can monitor them from their analog. So when it comes to p twenty twenty-five, everything on the network is digital from the voice to the data, obviously and the control channel. So if the network is purely digital, what does that really mean? When you're trying to talk on the network? We need a way to convert our voice right? Are analog voice into something that's digital and then we need to take that digital signal converted back to something that we can hear again, which is again analog and we do that with a VO coder. Okay. So there's two different VO coders out there that can be used. There's an IM be which is improved multi band exciting, and there's a m plus two, which is advanced, multibillion expectation. So these two voters were designed by digital voice systems Inc, which you might have seen as DV sl. Again, a lot of acronyms here, and if I am confusing anybody, I am going to have all these acronyms in the show notes off, scanner.

"There are some interesting kings here that amazon may have to iron out for instance this follow up mold only works when alexa is confident the second command is not just background noise from conversation or program on tv it's not clear exactly how that works but it's probably safe to say that this feature may not work all the time at first it may register some for slots flow what mode is only available in english at the moment and only works when alexa isn't being used for another persistent activity like listening to music or an audio book it's no secret that siri is way behind other voices systems like google assistant and amazon's alexa when it comes to comprehension and total number of skills other that bush we would up with siri so badly when it was released so far in advance of the competition a new report reveals how years of misteps left siri eating dust according to report after a choir the original siri app in twenty ten for two hundred million dollars apple proceeded to quickly integrate the digital system into the iphone four s in twenty eleven there was so much potential for sherry and apple promise bring voice controls of the masses just as it did multi touch on the original iphone except the voice control computing revolution never quite happened that way for apple or the way apple predicted iphone used quickly realized that cyr clinton do a lot of things and even after apple open siri up with siri kit in twenty sixteen it's still isn't as intelligent as a system or alexa so what the heck happened instead of continuously.
