What role will voice technology have in our lives going forward? How will Emersonians shape that role? Is voice a biometric?
Emerson Launch Director Sanjay Pothen talked to Mark Brodie, an affiliated faculty member in Communication Studies, about voice technology at Emerson and beyond for the latest episode of Campus on the Common, the School of Communication’s podcast of ideas and interviews.
Three things Pothen said to remember:
One, this voice era is upon us. Two … [Emerson’s] DNA and our history is in voice. And three, in this world, the communication and arts skills that we all are experts in and are learning and teaching and studying [are] going to be the differentiated skills. [S]o we have a great opportunity as a college and as a community to lead the conversation, and that’s exactly what we’re doing.
