Event Details

Voice-command and conversation interfaces are revolutionising the way we live and interact. From voice assistants such as Google Home or Amazon Alexa, to personal digital assistants such as Apple’s Siri, we can now play music, control our smart homes, and keep up to date with the news all through the power of our voice.

With a forecasted industry value of US $18 billion by 2023, startups and businesses can develop a competitive advantage by incorporating a voice experience strategy as part of their brand development.

At our event, Designing for Voice Technology, we’ll explore:

  • What is VERSA?
  • Why you should get behind voice command technology
  • How brands are leveraging voice technology
  • Conversational Architecture (Terminology & Example Project, Flash Briefings/Custom Skills & Smart Home Skills)
  • A use case and scripting exercise
  • Scripting exercise
  • Possibilities of the platform
  • Skill Infrastructure
  • Prototyping

There are no prerequisites for this workshop. This workshop is designed for anyone interested in Voice Experience technology and thinking like a Conversational Designer.
