“Make it so!” The real state of voice technology
Thu 6 April 2017, 18:00 – 21:30 BST
Voice activation has arrived. Amazon’s Alexa shone at CES, and Google Home is on its way to the UK. But is voice really going mainstream? Are skills the new apps? Is the future hands-free?
Discover the answers to these questions (and more) at HMC’s free voice meetup.
We’ve lined up short talks from the leaders in voice innovation, from both the corporate and startup worlds.
Make friends with the platform evangelists, check out the latest implementations, and talk to corporate clients about what they need from their technology partners.
Best of all, you’ll be able to hang out with a bunch of London’s smartest, most creative developers – with an ample supply of drinks and nibbles to fuel the conversation.
Did we mention it’s free?
