Successful Smart Speakers and Voice-Enabled Products

July 9th 2020

Our two presenters discussed a series of real-world challenges they have faced in developing sophisticated interactive smart speaker products. Topics addressed covered the disciplines in voice integrated products, from acoustics to microphones, electronics, DSP and output transducers.

Attendees gained a keen understanding of how all these areas must work together in order for a product to succeed
in attaining the goals set by the product manager.
Attendees learned how companies in the past were not equipped to make the best decisions or to integrate these disciplines to succeed with their end product.
