by Parks Associates | Jul. 15, 2019

Chris O'Dell, Research Associate, Parks Associates, will moderate the session Creating Awesome, Trusted Voice Experiences for Consumers at VOICE Summit 2019 on Wednesday, July 24 at 4:00 p.m in Newark, NJ  at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT).

Voice has made a sizeable impact in the smart home and connected CE spaces with the success of smart speakers and personal assistants. The challenges are now to extend these capabilities to other systems throughout the home, establish the role of voice alongside the other means to interface with the home, and ensure these innovations are attracting new households into the smart home ecosystem. Voice has become ubiquitous in the home.

Smart speakers are now in 35-36% of U.S. broadband households.  Voice is moving past the smart speaker into consumer’s day to day lives.

This session will explore stories and stats behind creating skills/apps consumers can trust and will use.  Panelists who will join him on this session:

  • Bonnie Canziani Associate Professor, University of North Carolina Greensboro
  • Sara MacSween Lecturer, UNC Greensboro
  • Nigel Cannings CTO, Intelligent Voice
  • Kevin Teman Founder and Lead Developer, AIMM - The Artificially Intelligent Matchmaker
