Webtuesday: Talking to Machines

Okay, Computer: Do-you-hear-me? Hello? No response. We all know the flaws and frustrations that come with speech interfaces. But thanks to deep learning algorithms, even browsers became significantly better in recognizing our voice. Good enough?

In this talk I want to share my experiences in designing my very own personal assistant. Not only does it know how I articulate myself, but also what data sources I like to get my information from. This talk will both cover design decisions and the implementation side with JavaScript. But kids: don’t try this in public.
