Exploring what it means to go ‘voice first’

Open Innovation, Events, Company Updates

You can now buy an Amazon Echo at the grocery store, and if you have a smartphone, you’re carrying a voice assistant in your pocket. We’re going deep on voice-first technology, exploring the potential impact on organizations, industries, and culture.

This month, we’ll hear from the Alexa Diabetes Challenge finalists at a much-anticipated Demo Day. (Learn more about the finalists and how their ideas may help diabetes patients solve everyday health challenges.) We’ll also host a panel of experts at a Lab Session discussion on what it means to go “voice first” in healthcare.

If you’re also joining the #voicefirst conversation — or still deciding how you feel about Alexa, Siri, Cortana, Bixby, and Google Assistant — our reading list will help you make sense of it all. Keep an eye on the Lab Report for more on voice technology over the next few weeks. (Sign up for the newsletter, and we’ll send new insights to your inbox.)
