🎭 PRESENTATION DECK: How to get Voice to become a foundational technology
Last week at the second impressive Conversation Design Festival I put this presentation together where I explore how Voice fits in all the dynamic change organisations, societies and ourselves are experiencing. I use the framing of Azeem Azhar’s
to find a solution on how we all can work to have Voice Become a foundational technologie. Lastly I explore how Voice will be part of the recent Web3 and metaverse movements.
