“Alexa, Can You Hear Me Now?” A Report on Voice Technology from The Alexa Conference

Earlier this month I attended the Alexa Conference and the concurrent Alexa World Fair. The events were organized by Score Publishing and VoiceFirst.FM and held in Chattanooga Tennessee, a town known as Gig City due to its early rollout of high-speed fiber optic internet. The conference covered voice technology in general and with a focus on Amazon Alexa. Panels and workshops in specific tracks covered voice in Health Care, Smart Homes, Consumer Marketing, and Storytelling, with a few individual sessions about in-car voice tech, banking, and voice for veterinarians.
