Description

In our 101 series of events we look at emerging trends and technologies that are hotly tipped to disrupt the industry.

On the 27th September at 8:30am, join Tom Ollerton Innovation Director, We Are Social, Nick Dutch, Head of Digital, Domino’s and Chris Gathercole, Head of FT Labs, Financial Times for Voice Tech 101. They will look at how this technology is rapidly taking over the industry, what innovations are happening, which brands are pioneering the way, and where they see Voice Technology progressing in the future.

From assistant and bots to AI integration, the number of people talking about Voice Technology has been steadily increasing. Voice provides the most natural barrier-free integration with technology, as there are no keys to tap or touch pads to control. So is now the time for brands to be taking the step towards developing natural language processing skills or are we several light years away from full penetration into the market?

According to the data, over a quarter (26%) of Brits are already interacting with day-to-day technology using voice and 71% think it will be used for one or more daily tasks in 10 years’ time. It is clear that Voice Technology is here to stay and its benefits to both brands and consumers stretch far beyond voice commands. It offers the opportunity for brands to create a personal communication channel with consumers at scale.
