Episode 2: Can Voicebots be our friends?
Play • 28 min

This is the second episode of The Sonic Voices Multicast, a monthly podcast that lets listeners hear what several pioneers in the field of human language technology, voice first, audio, sonic branding, and other adjacent specialties, are up to.  

This month, this is the prompt that the speakers are addressing: "Many users of voice assistants (and Amazon Alexa especially) really do feel that Alexa is "a friend" or even "a member of the family."  Is that something to be concerned about, something to worry over, or is it just the usual thing of humans doing with technology what they will?"

The speakers this month are: Ahmed Bouzid, Audrey Arbeeny, Benjamin McCulloch, Deborah Dahl, Emily Banzhaf, Jim Kennelly, Julia Anderson, Kane Simms, Leor Grebler, Roger Kibbe, Steve Keller, and Supriya Kulkarni.
