I’m excited to be speaking this evening at VoiceTech TO’s meetup tonight. You can read more about it here: https://www.meetup.com/voice-tech-to/events/250842801/ — we’ve also invited all of the Ubiquitous Voice Society Toronto (UbiVee’s) to attend!
There are a lot of challenges in bringing a hardware product to market with voice. The bigger question is whether the opportunity offsets the risks and costs. Are there opportunities for a hardware company beyond checking off a feature list as an Alexa endpoint?
Big thanks to Ecobee and Connected Lab for hosting and running the event! It’ll be interesting to meet others in the space and learn.
