What Is AWS for Health’s Role in the Emergent World of Voice Technology and Conversational AI?
"Describe what you see with your role with AWS for health. When you look at this emergent world of voice technology and conversational AI, you know, there's a lot of businesses in this space before the pandemic. It's growing. It's an area of opportunity to share your perspective. Yeah, no, this is actually probably one of the most fascinating areas that I see. And actually mark from constant companion touched on something that I think is probably the most valuable aspect of voice and conversational AI, which is to make things not only accessible, but understandable and comprehensible by everybody for everybody, regardless of status or age or anything. Everything from elder care to providing better kind of interactivity and understanding to people who otherwise would not have access to these advanced resources to all these other things. So I think, you know, what I would look when I look at it is that, you know, a lot of initial uses of things like conversational AI tools focus on enabling capabilities that we all kind of take for granted, right? Today, the normal actions turning on the lights and so on. And I think going forward in the future is really the potential here is that what we have is a tool that can make the advanced work that needs to be done in healthcare or chronic conditions and things like that. We can make that accessible and understandable by everybody. So that my grandmother and everyone else can utilize these things just as a regular part of their everyday existence and still access resources that would otherwise be limited to just waiting weeks and on end for a specialist to explain it to them and even then they don't quite understand all the ins and outs of it. The potential of voice and conversational AI is that what you have here is a patient never getting tired kind of resource in front of you that will explain anything in the world to you.

I think all of us today more than ever hear about home family and being together more we miss seeing one. Another in person and the ability to connect by video with family and friends is a huge part of. What's called these social determinants of health. And i believe that waste technology especially with video components added to it naked accessible and easy for us to be connected more a lot of people learn how to use zoom calls or facetime or teams or other platforms.

So we are at the forefront of many different retrofits right now in the healthcare space where we're fitting entire senior living either new builds or remodels with smart devices. So this is actually an example of one of our leading clients. This is inspire and Manhattan. This is a 215 unit building, 350 plus $1 million. And we were retrofitted every piece of this building with voice technology to make it more easy to use for the incoming incoming seniors. So what are we talking about? We're talking about obviously a hub device like an Alexa, but we're talking light switches by voice, thermostats by voice, blinds by voice, TVs, you know, utilizing voice, and so on. So there's this whole approach that we can bring, you know, to new communities and the new seniors who are moving in since now one on a two people who move into a community are using a smart device at least three times per day.

More Proactive Experiences for Your Amazon Device
"Terry Fisher here. So all right, let's get into another one of these announcements from the Lexi live event. Now, I have to admit this one, I'm not so sure that it's going to be coming to Canada as soon as the United States simply because this is based on locations and those features seem to take a little bit longer to come to Canada. Never less. I want to tell you about it cuz I think it's pretty interesting. It's all about more proactive experiences and this is the description that Amazon puts out for this. It says using event-based triggers and proactive suggestions developers can build proactive office. This is for customers. So, for example, if someone is heading out to work, the customers could opt in to have a skill proactively suggest that they walk their home. Or if someone begins a morning run, a school to proactively suggest a playlist to listen to. And they give an example here. And they say, Whole Foods is also using these features for curbside pickup experience, that will launch later this year. Now again, I'm assuming this is Is going to be in the United States. First, unfortunately, I don't know when it's coming to Canada, but I think you know, this is one of the really interesting things about voice technology. In my mind is when it can become proactive and really be a personal assistant, proactively offer the key word. So I will definitely keep you updated on what I hear with regards to any of these features coming to Canada for now know that they Amazon is working on this and typically, it is just a matter of time till those features come here as well. So
Request Songs on the Radio With Alexa
"Is a very very interesting feature that Amazon just announced with Lexi life. This is called the wrong song requests kill component. And this is the statement that that Amazon has put out about this. This feature will allow radio DJs to engage with listeners by taking song requests and dedications through Lexi. As an example, they say that iHeartRadio will support this feature and actually saw a demo, this whole literally. What happens is a person can speak to Lexi request a song dedicated to someone and then the DJ on the other end will get that list of requests that are coming in. May be able to play songs and this all happens through Lexi. I am very interested to see how this will actually play out. Once we have this feature, well, baked into the skill or we can act The experienced it but it's very fascinating to me because it opens up this whole new world of interactive voice technology with a brand with us. In this case a radio DJ but it could be other brands that are using these features. So I'm very sad to see where this goes in the future. For now it's called the song requests kill component and home. Again, this is available to developers right now to start implementing in their skills. So I will do my best to keep you updated on this as I learn new aspects about this. But I think this is a very exciting one.

Shane Lowe on Mediate and New Voice Technology
"First of all tell me about mediate as a whole what is it and why is it important so i like mediate because i try to be a really conscious consumer so i am one of those people that believes that we really vote for the companies that remain with our money. So it's really important to me when i when i'm making purchases but also when i pick a place to work because i don't want to work for a company that i feel like is treating its customers and users badly because that just doesn't align with my moral compass so that's the first thing that you should know about me and then you know that that also factors that also reflects on the company because i wouldn't work for the there. Were bad company. The thing that i love about mediate is our focus is on the people that were serving so our goal is to work with users to create solutions to problems that actual people have that actual people want solutions for so we're not trying to create something and then convince you that you need it all of the products that we develop all of the features that we create our directly in response to what people have come to us. and ask for. And i think that makes us you know unfortunately makes us kind of unique in a couple of different markets that we're in because i feel like a lot of times you know either as a blind person or as a college student or even as just a person in the generation that i am in people come to me and tell me hey you know you need this thing and so you should buy it and i. I really have an issue with that approach. Because i feel like a lot of times. I'm not being. i'm not the person be considered. You know it's kind of more about you. Know the bottom line of certain businesses. And so that's really what we're not about where we're here to create something that people want something. People are excited about using something that people would like to us to make their lives more efficient

But you're absolutely right. You know we we get inspiration from our clients right. And they're the ones that are now. I think it's we take change the last twelve to eighteen months where we are getting bumped with new ideas of how you could potentially use voice with kids And you know. Education is an obvious one. Another people don't realize just how dependent the education industry is on data points ruins inform how you track performance in many different ways whether it's in beaumont of formal assessment reading practice or instruction right but voice is actually a new category data for education.

What didn't they say is what what he didn't say is in many cases just as important as what they did. Say you know. Where did they make the substitution magic. An in session. And then you can start looking at things like reading property. And how how how indicative is reading prostate of of confidence when a child is reading.

Assistance and voice technology from many different viewpoints. That helped us really transform the way we think about research and the way we conduct research and so what we realized that we need to conduct research in voice in ways that really match the situation so we can conduct research on how people use their voice devices.

You know inclusive of voice. They're trying to cast a wider net. Just help and find private fix find somebody likes. She wants to use this technology and you know sometimes that works. Of course you know you have. Google Alexis was kind of the top dog platforms in the space that can be applicable across of industries but in particular for mainstream and even some of the incumbents in the space. They actually need targets dry berry precise solutions. That only solve their problem. When you look at the restaurant industry you know what it shows is for example you know.

Meka's right Silicon Valley Atlanta on a few other geographies rights but the ultimate goal. And why it was important for me is that you know really want to empower black software engineers because we've seen how you know the proverbial softwares eating the world. We kind of need to be a part of that. Furthermore in terms of culture you know we oftentimes are at the edge of bringing new concepts to allow the cultures.

That could be a voice on the go a in other words with a with ball zone an odds on By the or it could be voice in the car but you know ultimately some of our most engaged our best engaged consumers those who are engaging with boys since so strategy standpoint. That just is an obvious to me like we WANNA get consumers more engaged with boys in the more consumers beginning as we've with than the weather organised business quicker we get across all those different use cases mobile in home in car Just in we know ultimately especially in a world where where our primary revenue announcer by subscription Is All about engagement when when engagement drop off? That's when you get churned. So from that standpoint you know voice seems to be a leading indicator that more we consumer engaged in voice the better the long term lifetime value is For that consumer use it. So it is vitally important to us from a from a strategic stem and when you said when you save voice again we started the compensation talking about Saas because because that's where the the promise because when you a voice on Sony's Voice Trudgy what is it. The you mean when you said voice. Do you mean Alexa. Google assistant do you mean any device that comes anywhere with the voice interface on it? How would you describe the terminology of voice from Sony Perspective? I would say more the latter. I think it's You know I think we look at it in a in a very broad sense any place where someone engages with boys with that being said you know obviously you know there's a handful of leading platforms and there's a handful of leading on a streaming services and you know one of the things that are about is just how complicated A Web that all is you know in in getting this right sometimes. The issues Are On the platform voice platform side. Sometimes they're on the streaming service and an obvious league. You know when you go across or is we have this like you know.

They found us all the time. They right through us through the website and they said hey you know.

E 'cause even just a disability we solve for the visibility aspect of at least featuring them and I'm surprised every so often. There's a unicorn out there by a US Latino founder and you know. I get very excited. Because then we method and we connect and then that's yet another point person for the future generations states to know that they can count them person to know that they can engage with that person.

There's this theme of just awareness and education and community that you're doing beyond you know you're kind of day to day work that I think is really important to note and I loved it. That's just a part of everything you're putting out there. The last question we like to ask on this show to help promote voice technology as a whole is there currently a flash briefing or voice killer experience that you're using or really enjoying right now? I personally like to concur with a bunch of stuff so my home is the thing is a very strong bang so most recently just being playing with motion sensor can trigger Google Assistant to play music in the bathroom when you're watching so that's a project it's interesting. How the Google assistant kindle million things outwardly that it's interesting you is harder to make play from different. It device so I love that kind of challenging automated. Pretty much everything in the home. Nick triggers for everything. I would say you know as I mentioned earlier. My wife works at a global partnerships.

Chicken Little Chihuahua wreck shoes are pretty fast. I felt a little bit dumber that day but I want to make sure I get it right so anyways. So that's one of the you know I would say Leslie's work in the recipe on the Google. Assistant is one that will use allowed. Also because we're Beta testers of bigalow assistant much skills.

"Off guard and that's going to be a huge loss not just monetarily but you think about what are we gonNa do for these people whose voices had been hacked. Gosh Yeah Man. That's crazy okay. So we can talk about this for hours. So let's reel it back in and I've got a lightening around for you and We'll follow that with a favorite book and we'll we'll look conclude the sets on good soundscape awesome. What's the best way to improve? Health outcomes with voice. I think you think about the dimensionality of voice and think about where the touch points are with voice I think that including a nuanced version of voice at were thought a strategy around boys around what it can do for you. I think would be really important. What is the biggest mistake or pitfall to avoid with voice in healthcare thinking about it at the end voice? Strategy should be part of the beginning of the design of the product. How do you stay? Relevant as an organization despite constant change. And I'm thinking Rupaul. Like using voice. What do you do to differentiate yourself as a company where constantly thinking about what it? What are the latest greatest open source tools? What are the applications? What are the newer methodologies waterways could be used but still being laser focused on what we need to accomplish in the next three months? Six months in year. How do you think big? But still stay focused on that and What's the one area focus that drives everything at Your company? Quality Quality of synthesis doesn't get any better and clearer than that. What book would you recommend the listeners? Ripple just a fun book book around Voice You name it. Maybe one of each a fun one and a voice one okay. So in terms of voice there is a new book coming out called Voice Technology and healthcare. And the editors are Terry Fisher. Harry Pappas David Metcalfe and send the poetry and I think that that is going to be a really nice compilation of a variety of different technologies also applications for voice in healthcare and then in terms of just other reads. I love this book by Jim. Bola here he called interpreter of maladies.

"Hey there Dr Terry Fisher here and welcome to the podcast this week. I think it's only fitting that this week we talk about what's going on in the world and that means this week it's a solo show. I don't have a guest with me but I wanNA talk to you a little bit about What's going on? Of course I'm talking about with Corona Virus Covert Nineteen. And you know what we can do or what could potentially be done using voice technology to help with the issues that we are facing today as you will know if you've been following a physician and obviously a big voice tech- enthusiast with this podcast and I actually have another podcast called voice. I health as well and it's very interesting you know. I don't know maybe a little bit of a sad sort of way but that these world seem to be colliding right now for me With everything that's going on with again corona virus covert nineteen and people now being told to practice social distancing and I mean giving a lot of thought to this over the last little while you know other ways at voice technology and for this podcast in particular Amazon Lexi. Alexa can help with what is going on. And what I WANNA do is talk about five different ways that I think voice technology really can have a profound impact on what we are all today. Some of these are not available today. Some of these are a little bit future thinking but I want to share them with you anyway because I do think that there's a lot of potential in this going forward and one of the big barriers is the privacy the security the regulation and all that sort of stuff. And that's not to say that's not important because it is but at times. I get frustrated with that because I feel like those regulations. Those privacy security. Those issues are barriers ends preventing us from moving forward and really making a difference on everybody's health but we'll get to those. What I WANNA do is again. I WANNA share with you five different ways in. And I'm sure there are more to and I'd love to hear your feedback on this to start a discussion about this and we can use the the Hash tag voice. I health to discuss this but I want to talk to you about five different ways that I think that voice technology can have an impact. And we'll just start with start with number one and this is already being done today and I think we should be encouraging other companies to do this as well and this is voice enabling things that otherwise we would all be touching and what I mean by that is like kiosks bank machines Elevator controls things that we all push buttons on or perhaps we you know we check in at an airport or those sorts of things if these were all voice enabled and we are starting to see that then they would be less transmission of the virus because naturally people would be touching these devices less and when you think about it. Some of these devices are the ones that people touch the most and they're touched by the most number of people because that's what they're designed to do. They're designed to protest people and move through whatever that function is on a on an efficient and and rapid basis so by voice enabling these devices we will be able to minimize or reduce. The risk of people transmitting the virus to one another so if you are involved in any type of industry or company that is doing this Kudos to you. I'd love to hear about it and I think that's one way that technology can have a big impact on that case so that's number one okay. Number two is as you know. I love flash briefings and what is so great about. Flash briefings is that you can get the latest news every day in a very short little tidbit. Very short little snippet. They're typically about two minutes in length as you may know I have a number of fluffy myself the voice in Canada flash briefing and the voice. I health health tips flash briefing. But here's the thing I think. We need a corona virus flash briefing and as you know there's so much information out there but there's also a lot of misinformation and one of the real challenges today is trying to figure out what information is accurate. What information is current? What information is going to be useful to us? And so this product. She gets me really really excited. I am launching the corona virus tips flash briefing under the voice. I health brand and the whole goal of this is to do just what I describe to keep. You informed up to date and current with evidence based proven. Good information so that you will know that the information that you here on this flash briefing is accurate is current and the whole idea about it and the reason. I'm calling corona virus. Tips is because it's going to give you one small little tip on a daily basis. Maybe it might be about like what is the krona virus. How does it work? How is it transmitted? How can we prevent it and most importantly how can you take care of yourself and your loved ones in this time and I think this is just a wonderful opportunity to use the technology flash briefings so if you want to check that out you just simply say to Lexi or Alexei Enable Corona Virus Tips. And then you ask for your flash briefings or for your news and again. I think this is a a really nice way that we can stay a little bit more informed on what is going on on a daily basis If it's not live at the time that you're listening to this will be live imminently in the next day or two but just the way the timing worked out this podcast episode might go live just before the grieving does. So if that's the case just try to enable it again in the next twenty four hours to forty eight hours all right. So that's number. Two number. Three is general information in the form of a skill. And this is one that I've already created if you didn't know that already and it's called the skills called Corona Virus Doc. It's on Amazon Alexa I've also worked with Roger Kibi From the Samsung team and him he and I have partnered to have this launch on saps Samsung Bixby as well. And what is this? It's general information that you can obtain from the voice assistant and it gets into things like well. I General Info about the corona virus. It talks about How is it transmitted? It talks about some of the symptoms. It talks about how you can help to prevent yourself from from contracting or at least minimize the risk of it. I don't think anybody could ever one hundred percent that you're not gonna get it but things you can do to reduce the risk of it and those sorts of things so. I hope that my goal in doing this is really to take some of the pressure off of the healthcare system because as a physician. I Know Stan I've seen this. I've had patients come in. That are concerned. They may have the virus but actually they don't really have the symptoms of the virus and the it would actually be better for them and for the other patients because it would take pressure off of me the other my other colleagues if they were to stay at home because they have a cold or something like that now. The idea behind the skill cornerstone is to try to help. Give them Jenner Information. Now have to be very clear about this. This is not. This is not a substitute for professional medical advice. We are not at that stage with the voice assistance yet. But I feel that if it's some good trusted information that then the patient can make an informed decision and that the still might mean very well might mean. They've got to go see the doctor but at least they're a little bit more informed and I think having evidence based appropriate information is only a good thing with what is going on today. The more that we know the truth about what's going on and the uptodate information the better one of the challenges with this skill of course has been trying to keep it updated because things are changing so fast. So I'm doing my best to do that. It may not always be updated to the latest day or even a few days for that matter. But I'm doing my best and Anyway there's that skill now the other two things are the other two ways that I think. Voice Technology can help with What is going on with Kobe? Nineteen are a little bit future looking but I think it's very very interesting and we're already starting to see just the hints of this. Now so let me tell you about one of these. One of them is actually having a voice assistant. Act a little bit like the doctor where actually starts to ask you questions and it says do you ever do. You have a cough. You have trouble breathing. Have you been exposed to somebody that has the virus and those sorts of questions and based on the responses using a particular algorithm it can then stratified you or determine your risk factor or your risk Level of having the virus or nineteen and then based on that? If it's Amazon well we're not quite there yet but when we have a an efficient effective and trustworthy home test kit than perhaps Amazon could order it for you. If the risk is high enough and it would have and then Amazon would have it. Sent to your home Quickly and then you could do the test at home. Have the discussion with the voice assistant and in such a way you are actually starting to Tain your medical information your medical care at home like I said we're not there yet but I think this is the way that things are going and I find it absolutely fascinating in fact if you're interested. I have recently just in the last year than a text. Talk talking about how voice. Technology is going to disrupt healthcare. And you know it's I don't know what the right word is but It's ironic perhaps that you know he's speaking about this before and it wasn't obviously in specifically krona virus but it was the example. I gave with was with regards strep throat but the same idea where you can get the care at home and I think this is going to be the way that healthcare goes in the future. And we're not there yet but this is where it gets back to this. They said at the outset of this podcast episode is at one of the things that's preventing us from doing this or the privacy security and regulatory barriers and. Should those be there for this type of thing or should we be a little bit more relaxed with those regulations? That's a big question and I don't have the answer that but I'd be curious to hear your answer to that and then the other Or the fifth way that I think that Voice Technology could help with the corona virus is actually helping with management at home. Meaning if you have been diagnosed with krona virus why not have some type of skill that can monitor how you're doing? Perhaps it asks you to rate your symptoms looks for patterns. Perhaps even the Artificial intelligence and the machine learning portion can start to Detect patterns from multiple people and determine if there is something about the way that the virus behaves. That might alert you or your doctor to the fact that you might be at high risk for some of the more severe forms of the disease as a result of the illness of the virus so management. I think is another big opportunity here. Maybe it just tells you how to manage each of the different symptoms that you might have from the virus and that sort of thing so I just think there's so much here with voice technology I think the future is so so bright as far as the opportunities and the way we are going to obtain or healthcare from the waist instance. But we're not there yet so where we are today. What can we do today? I think the first three are the things that we can do. Number one have companies organizations as much as possible. Voice enable any type of kiosk where people are touching things lot number to look at a flash briefing gives people up to date information as part of their brief cast feed every single day. And again if you're interested in that you can always enable corona virus tips. Flash briefing and number three is have a skill. That person can talk to you when needed to provide some information and for that I encourage you to check out my skill corona virus dock where you can obtain some of that information. I'm sure there are many many many more ways that.

"Educational Sessions essentially a full day conference in the Intelligent Health Pavilion. And I encourage you to come and check that out as well now. The purpose of today's podcast really is to preview the book a little bit. Tell you a little bit about the book and so that you can have an idea of what is in this book and this will be of use to you the first thing that I wanna say I have to give a huge shout out to everybody that has contributed to this. Because it's not just these four authors. I mentioned that wrote this book. It is really a community effort and we have actually assembled over thirty. I believe the numbers. Thirty two different experts in the field in different areas at the intersection of voice technology and healthcare. And they've come together and we have come together and we have created this book that really covers a real cross section of the industry where it's at today a little of the history of it. What is available right now and as well we look towards the future the really exciting stuff that is going to be coming down the pipe and we're going to be seeing. Some of these are really innovative ideas and use cases going forward so today I want to take a few moments. Just tell you a little bit about the sections of the book what you can expect to find. And I've got some clips from the different contributors in some cases just telling you a little bit about their personal chapters that wrote so the book first of all is divided into four main sections. I should also mention if you want to get access to the book or get more about it. You can always go to voice. I health dot com slash book. And there I've got lots of about it. That's also where you'll be able to access Links to order the book if you decide to do so and so on so again we have designed the book to really be made up of four main sections and in doing so we wanted to think about the different main areas that would make sense really to have this type of format and section one is made up of four different chapters It is an introduction to voice technology so these chapters really form the fundamental the basis for some underlying key concepts that really are relevant to the rest of the book and so yes these introduce some of the key concepts of voice technology in healthcare. Now if we dive into that section. I can tell you a little bit about the chapters and the people that are contributing in these chapters. The first chapter. I'm I'm very honored to say was written by myself. And it really looks at an overview of voice. Why is voice such an important Concept now when it comes to healthcare technology why I feel this is going to completely transform healthcare. Why believe that voice is actually the next operating system the video s and get into different types of communication and then I lay the groundwork for different use cases which of course are explored in more detail throughout the rest of the book the second chapter is by Atlanta ear. You may have heard her speak if you've gone to the voice of Healthcare Summit over the past couple of years. She was a keynote speaker there a few years ago and she is truly one of the World foremost experts on design voice. User interface design. And how it applies to healthcare and we put this early in the book because we really wanted to keep this in mind for all the readers when they are looking at some ideas and how best to design voice applications because the user interface design is so critical and so Atlanta's chapter is here at the The outside of the book as well the next chapter which we feel also is critical to designing good a voice experience. Healthcare is one by Audrey are beanie. She is the CEO and founder of audio brain and her chapter is entitled the Science Behind. Sonic branding how audio can create better patient caregiver and healthcare provider outcomes. And I'm really pleased to actually have a clip from you're you're just describing a little bit about her chapter so here is Audrey are beanie. Hi I'm Maury are beanie. I'm the founder. Ceo and executive producer of audio brain. And I'm honored to be a chapter contributed to voice technology and healthcare. This is an amazing book for anybody. Who's interested in health and wellness from every aspect? I specialize in sonic branding at my firm audio brain and one of our passions is and we advocate for the use of music and sound to promote health and wellbeing in this chapter. I discussed my twenty five years of experience in working in the healthcare industry. We talk about how the brain processes music and Sadam why. It's the perfect tool for communicating and helping to heal and promote wellness with new technologies emerging. Sound is even more important than it ever was and really has a strong influence on patient outcomes. I discussed some of the projects that we've worked on and the history of the industry and where it's headed in the future. I hope you enjoy the chapter and hope you enjoy all the other amazing authors that are in this book please go out and purchase voice technology in healthcare and you can find it at voice. I health dot com photos slash book. Thank you so much. We look forward to seeing you at hymns and the release of the book on March tenth. Thank you very much to audrey for those comments fantastic The next chapter is a really critical one as well that we thought fit really well at the outset of the book. And that of course is when we talk about voice. We also need to talk about privacy insecurity and so in this case we have nature lore From orbiter who wrote a chapter called secure voice in it is It's a great one It's all I can say. Really really critical information there. The second part of the book is another seven chapters and this is looking at voice technology and the patient experience and so here we have quite a few authors that have had experience with creating these voice applications and how seeing how it impacts patients some of these chapters include chapter five automated virtual caregiving using voice for services proactive personalized holistic. Twenty four seven and affordable. This is by Stuart Patterson from lifeblood then we have a really interesting chapter by Dave Kemp on voice and wearables and that and how that's going to affect the the Patient then we have another fascinating chapter by Rupa Patel. This is on synthetic voices for healthcare applications. Rupel is doing some amazing work looking at how you can create voices for for brands but also in the medical field. How can you create a voice for somebody that may be losing their voice? It's really really powerful. The next two chapters are edited versions of podcasts interviews. That took place here on this podcast voice I health we wanted to incorporate some of these interviews into the book as well touring to bring a real personal aspect to the To the narratives that you are reading and so as I said we have two chapters here coming up next Chapter Eight is voice. I health interview a diabetes. Care plans with an wiler. She actually won an award for her diabetes Alexa Skill and then chapter nine is entitled Voice I health interview Alexis skills for pediatrics. And we have Devon Nadar Speaking about some of her experiences with creating some skills specifically for pedes then we have a very interesting chapter by Robin Christoffersen. And it's called the rapid rise of voice technology and it's awesome power to empower. This is all about accessibility and Wonderful wonderful addition. And I do have a short clip here from Robin. Speaking about his chapter. So here is a Robin Christoffersen. My name is Robyn Christopherson. I'm head of digital inclusion at UK technology and disability charity ability net. I wrote chapter about how the Echo and voice first technologies more. Broadly represent a fantastic opportunity for people with disabilities. I've been lucky enough to be working in this area of technology and disability for the last twenty five years and health is incredibly important so read the chapter and learn about how voice first technologies are being used in so many different ways to help people live more productive healthier happier. Mo fulfilling lies. That's wonderful. And I love those comments from Robin so you can get a little taste of what that chapter is all about The next chapter is chapter eleven. And it's entitled an overview of Voice Technology and healthcare and is really by a team of authors from a Macadamia Technologies And they have been real leaders in the voice for space as well. So it's a it's wonderful to have them part of the book. The third section is next and this third section is called voice technology and the provider experience. Now go from you're describing. What the patient will experience were is experiencing with voice technology. And now we tackle what be provider is experience is experiencing and the first chapter is chapter twelve in this section and it's Mayo Clinic. Patient centered innovation driven. And this is written by a team at Mayo Clinic including a Doctor San Pruthi. Who's one of the cover authors of the book so Again a very very well written and excellent chapter chapter thirteen we get to another a voice L. Interview Voice Technology for behavioral changes. And in this chapter I speak with Dr Mattson Boesky. Who was on the PODCAST? Awhile back and he talks about his experiences about how we can use voice technology to really influence positive behavioral changes and hopefully this results in positive health outcomes. Now the next chapter chapter fourteen is called the laws of voice. This is critical to us in the healthcare. Space looking at implementing. Voice Technologies because. This is such an early early industry when it comes to voice technology healthcare that there are a lot of questions right now and we have to lawyers heather dealer and Bianca Phillips who we are very fortunate to have as a contributor to the book who outlined some of the questions. Some of the concerns in this regard and Bianca has Been Gracious enough to provide us with a clip for her as well alenquer chapter so here is Bianca Phillips Phillips I'm a lawyer with research expertise in medical law and digital helpful and they coordinate at Elektra of legal process methods and institutions in the. Jd Program will try blow school. I'm one of the contributing authors alongside co off a headache SLA. Us Attorney specializing in digital at life. And then what happens? The title of our chapter is the laws of voice as we enter this new frontier of waste best health lawyers and lawmakers will seek your expertise on the role of voice technologies in society in order to cheat. They understand the legal environment and the laws of voice. Now chapter rate is presented with nine hypothetical scenarios. We've uses a voice. Technologies in pre and post operative cat pediatrics genetic testing into health impediment health tracking. We then discuss some of the lake will considerations and legal contracts relevant to h scenario the chapter then tends to you by asking a range of questions and presenting. The guide called the eight pillows. We get you thinking about what below should be. And you'll role in shaping the future of law and society. So that's wonderful as you can as you heard. It's an extremely important chapter in this Early Industry when it comes to voice technology following up that chapter we have another chapter based on an interview called voice south into medical documentation in the voice. I era and this is with Dr Harvey Gender Sandu And he is from say Kara and we talk about medical documentation the pain of a lot of healthcare providers existence when it comes to trying to figure out how to deal with this issue and their companies doing this through voice very very interesting Discussion there then. We speak with Dr Yakutia Crystal and Dan Albert from Vanderbilt University and they're looking at creating a voice enabled or viva and Very interesting as well. Because it's has.

"voice technology" 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 technology" 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
