I am Maarten Lens-FitzGerald, I assemble the Open Voice Newsletter to help us understand, develop and use the emerging domain of conversational agents, voice, and assistants.
🎪 The Conversational Conference and the Emerce Voice Masterclass 🎪
And more IRL keynotes requests are coming in. Good to see that part of the business picking up. Here are two events for all to join.
Join me online with the cream of the Dutch conversational ‘crop’ at the Conversational Conference, on Thursday, September 23rd. Use this link to get a discount.
The closing keynote will be by me and before that Hans van Dam of the Conversation Design Institute, Marike van der Klomp of Vattenfall, Phoebe Ohayon of Whoozy Agency, and Annemieke Bakker of Centraal Beheer, and many others will share the experience and insights.
A week later you and your colleague have the opportunity to lay the foundation of your Voice knowledge in the Emerce Masterclass Voice. Online from 9:30 till 13:00 on September 30th you will learn the basics: voice history, players, and usage types. The application: in usage, cases, models, and how to deal with privacy. The future: with trends such as voice interoperability, edge computing, and technological sovereignty. And lastly the action: create your own agent.
🌮 VoiceLunchNL: interoperability, when do you want it Today we see the good work of the W3C on Voice interoperability and most readers know I find this a very important subject. Let’s discuss this at the Voice Lunch NL. I’ll do an intro on the W3C work and that of the Open Voice Architecture workgroup. What use cases do you want? I am starting to want it in my daily use.
VoicelunchNL on August 18th, 12:00-13:00 (Amsterdam time) via Zoom. Join us 15 mins earlier to chat.

👉 It’s easy to stay inside our industry echo chamber, but don’t forget about where users are. Help them along. https://t.co/yCED1gEUda
That’s it for this week, I’ll be back next Monday with a new edition of the Open Voice newsletter.
Cheers,
