Speaker: Vineet Sinha
The popularity of Amazon's Alexa and Google Home has been inspiring both developers and businesses to think about Voice computing. From a banking assistant on your phone to grocery shopping on your TV - it is truly exciting to see how Voice Interfaces could be used. The challenge, however, is that most Voice Apps are fairly limited in what they can do.
In this talk, Vineet shares experiences from prototyping and building over a dozen Voice Apps. He shows how practical decisions can make implementing great apps easy, reviews existing tools that have been built and talks about Violet (http://helloviolet.ai/) an Open-Source Voice App Framework designed to help developers create Voice Apps. Violet uses an approach inspired by Angular and React to simplify the complexity needed when manually building using other lower-level frameworks, while providing for more flexibility than the drag-and-drop non-technical tools on the market.
Vineet Sinha leads innovation prototyping efforts exploring the use of Emerging Tech for enterprises at Salesforce and is the lead on the open-source Violet Framework. He blogs at http://i3labs.org/
