Voice First Device Applications
Description

The rapid rise of voice-first devices such as Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Apple HomePod, opens new ways in which to present and interact with content. Imagine an interactive news reading application, where the system acts as an anchor, gathering news that is personalized based on the interest of the user, and presents it in a very entertaining way. Users may be interested in sports, movies, latest world news, or politics. Conversational systems that are built for these devices can provide a different way for the users to consume content. Users can ask questions about their favorite team, or the latest news; they can provide opinions and comments by voice, and carry on an engaging conversation, being informed and entertained in the process.
