What's Up In Voice
> On the Cover of New York Magazine: The Great Podcasting Rush Has Only Begun
> Try out TwoTone, which turns data into sound. I just listened to data from honey production communicated as if it were a piano…what a world we live in.
> Read how The world’s first genderless voice assistant is challenging gender stereotypes. It’s worth watching both videos, one which shows how they measured different aspects of what makes a voice sound gendered, and the demo of the new voice.
> Try the headliner app to have celebrity voices saying different things. Their slogan is “You Type, They Talk.” Not quite accurate enough to be frightening…yet…
> Check out the Secret Dunny Box project where people can leave voice message for each other…in a bathroom.
> Subscribe to the Voice Tech Podcast by Carl Robinson
> Read this post on How Google Assistant Became More Helpful in 2018. For me, the cooking assistant was the only one that impacted my life…and there’s still lots of work to be done.
> For you devs/academics, read this draft paper on Speech and Natural Language Processing

Have a great weekend!
