Last week I was at SpeechTek 2016 and I participated on a panel about the social impacts of conversing robots. It was a great experience and the panel started an interesting discussion that still continues.
I was inspired to start a publication on the topic of Social Robots on Medium.
Why Medium? Medium seems to be getting a lot of activity these days and some of my favorite stories are posted there, like the articles written as part of the Chatbots Magazine.
I’ve very interested in what I’ll call the “chatbot movement” and I write a lot about conversational UIs and conversational commerce at Opus Research. But I’m even more interested in voice interactive devices and the opportunities they present.
The first article I’ve posted in the Social Robots publication is called Shooting the Breeze About Social Robots. I try to share some of the highlights from the SpeechTek keynote panel discussion, which included Peter Krogh of Jibo and Leor Grebler of UCIC.
Please have a look at the article and, if you feel so inclined, share it. I’d like to get others to contribute to the publication, so if you’re interested in the social robots topic, reach out to me via your favorite channel and let’s talk!
