About this talk

The restrictions of cloud-only voice AI solutions have been a barrier to voice interfaces for many smart device manufacturers. Adding a voice assistant to a smart device required either giving up brand independence and tying their products to a big tech speaker solution or implementing an on-device solution that required the user to utter specific phrases to be understood. Other solutions were just too expensive or required too much processing power to make them viable options. Innovations in voice AI technology and the advent of a range of edge connectivity solutions has effectively removed the barriers to entry for the smart device industry and expanded the opportunities for smart TVs and other large home appliances to provide greater convenience and functionality through conversational interfaces.
