Artificial intelligence and voice control will affect our industry, content and life. Amazon is one of those two steps ahead with their voice assistant Alexa.
It is capable of voice interaction, music playback, making to-do lists, setting alarms, streaming podcasts, playing audiobooks, and providing weather, traffic, sports, and other real-time information, such as news. Alexa can also control several smart devices using itself as a home automation system.
"Alexa has opened up a new way to interact with technology for customers everywhere. Voice can now be used to consume information and the audience is in control. Storytelling is not linear any longer, you can now design delightful voice experience letting your listeners select how much details they want, in a natural way", tells Amazons Alexa boss Max Amordeluso.
Hear about the Alexa tools you can use to enable your storytelling to take advantage of this new interface and the media outlets using this technology. What will all this mean for our future?
