The Voice of the Car

A Two-Day Event
April 7-8, 2020
San Jose, California

When we're born, all we have is our mother's voice.

And then, we develop an inner voice.

So it stands to reason: as computing evolves, it will evolve to become voice-first.

The modern car has much to gain from integrating voice-first technology.

Already, the race is on, as brands such as BMW, Mercedes, Tesla, Hyundai, Ford, and many others are integrating various voice assistants and associated tech into their vehicles.

Where are we heading?

What are the best practices we've already learned?

Who is out in front, leading this industry evolution?

How are different companies approaching this fascinating, complex frontier?

Learn all of this, and more, at The Voice of the Car Summit.

Presented by VoiceFirst.FM, home of top technology podcast This Week In Voice and enjoyed in 50+ countries around the world.
