GDG Tech Sessions — DevFest Special Edition — “Hey Google, I’m lonely”: The basis of voice emotional design
“Hey Google, I’m lonely”: The basis of voice emotional design
Conversational Experiences enable users an emotional, natural connection with technology, applications, and brands. This is why Voice Design is probably the most exciting & influential aspect of our future with the tech.
The dream of talking freely to machines becomes a reality in the last few years. Conversational interfaces or assistants usage is growing and entering every household. This will change the way we interact with technology and with each other.
Apple revealed people talk to Siri as a therapist and Amazon created “listen with Alexa” to reads bedtime stories to young kids. How will this tech change affect our lives, our culture and the future of our kids?
We are built to communicate by words, however, we convey much more than content in our speech. As machines are better at analyzing and understanding emotions in voice and expressing emotions in their reactions, we face endless new possibilities. I will present a few pieces of research on emotional connections with tech.
Could machines and robots help with loneliness? Can they replace caregivers? Will we fall in love with them? I will provide examples and use cases.
- How could we create great Voice applications that engage users and clients with our brand and product?
- Emotional voice experience design tips.
