volcanic take: most "NLP" or "conversational" interfaces underperform well-structured webforms while costing many multiples; the fun industry story of "one day" and "at scale" is not going to pan out for most use cases

Chatterbox is the ONLY smart speaker that meets educational and privacy standards for kids. See that button? That's one of the many privacy features of Chatterbox. (It doesn't listen unless you press the button.) https://t.co/OzD3PjyXvO https://t.co/1YnAP6A2sw
That’s it for this week, I’ll be back next Monday with a new edition of the Open Voice newsletter.
Cheers,

PS My book ‘Voice - de spraakrevolutie: inzichten en kansen, keeps selling steadily.De Ebook version is broken on BOL and Amazon but not on Management book.
I just finished the audio version with the awesome Woozy Agency, so stay tuned for that one. I am pretty proud of how it sounds.
Need help designing and rolling out your Voice Strategy or want to start with an energizing keynote or workshop? Let me know: 0646333308
